We were seated on the 4th floor outside, just beat the lunch-time rush! The problem with this was that the kitchen seemed downstairs and by the time our food got to us it was no longer piping hot. Our meals were nothing special. Girlfriend got the beef in bamboo and I got beef in a Salians with some kind of... More

Excellent Vietnamese 'standard dishes' - great quality, and very friendly service by its young staff. Also great little bar upstairs - an oasis of calm in a manic city.

The restaurant is on 3 floors and one of the rooms has low settees and tables to eat at. We sat in a room on our own, but, Quynh, our student waitress stayed with us in case we needed anything. She talked to us to improve her English. The menu was varied and the food was served up attractively. It... More

Fantastic food - amazing selection and so well presented. A fabulous lunch - the fish was delicious. Koto provides vocational training for underprivileged young adults who love to practice their English and they take such pride in their restaurant. Very busy when we visited - so it's best to book so you do not miss on fantastic food !!

We had a most delicious lunch at Koto today. It was our first time there and we didn't realize the portions were so generous, so we ordered four dishes: a banana blossom salad, a jicama and fish salad, fresh spring rolls and beef cooked in bamboo. All dishes were beautifully presented by charming young trainees of the school (Koto trains... More

We decided to give this place a try after reading great reviews on TripAdvisor and learning about restaurants work for disadvantaged kids. To be honest, I wasn't expecting the food to be very good and was very pleasantly surprised by the way the food was presented and tasted. I ordered marinated sea bass on banana leaf and found it to... More

This is a Hanoi must! The food is excellent and the service equally so. We had salad and spring rolls followed by pork ribs and bamboo beef. Each dish was flavoursome, well cooked and well presented. Desserts of white chocolate gateau and apple pie were delicious. The coffee was the best we've had in Vietnam and all this by recent... More

Group of fourteen with Travel Marvel Tours enjoyed a Vietnamese feast prepared and served by eager hospitality students. The staff joined in with our spirited bonhomie eager to please and improve their Australian English. A great experience for strangers to Hanoi.

Toto is a nonprofit organizationl that trains disadvantaged youth in the restaurant business. The restaurant by that name is staffed by students in that program. Not only is the food very good, but the young people working there are an inspiration. The menu is enormous, featuring both Vietnamese and Western selections. Everything we have tried there has been of the... More
