Great informal lunch venue

I've been coming here for years but have always stuck to a winning formula of ordering either one of the cold noodle dishes (if you're trying to be healthy) or going all out for the sizzling steak with chips and fried egg (that still counts as Vietnamese I'm told!). The spring rolls are fab. I'd... read more

Don't expect too much of the restaurant itself, its a very simple place. However, the food and service are great. Prices very low, dows take out and delivery as well. Order the springrolls, the brisket soup, the sweet potato fries, try it all!

We went to this restaurant due to an urge to try some different cuisine, having checked out the previous reviews. The place is really down-to-earth and is more of a cafe than restaurant. The food is good, although for me it seemed a bit bland and I used all the sauces and spices that were available on the table. I... More

When in Abu Dhabi, you won't find a lot of Vietnamese options. For the price, this place is passes. The pho could stand to have more vegetables (basil, bean sprouts, maybe a slice of jalapeño) but the noodles are abundant, the broth is hot and has flavor. The spring rolls are tasty but could use more lettuce to roll up... More

one of the things i like about this place is simplicity, nothing fancy about it, just an ordinary place away from X stars hotels. The food is simply amazing, one of the best asian restaurants i been to. their portions are big cheap, good value for money. I wll defenitly go there again.

I found this little Vietnamese restaurant along Khalifa street in Abu Dhabi. They have two branches in Abu Dhabi and one in Dubai with a couple more opening soon in both cities. At first glance the menu looks quite interesting. I started with some Goi Cuon (Vietnamese rice paper summer rolls) they were ok. For the main course I was... More

This is definitely not a fancy place, more of a laid back, no frills cafe serving great Vietnamese food. The food is fresh and light, the pho here is better than the ones served in 5 star restaurants in Abu Dhabi, the summer rolls are especially good too! Definitely recommended.

We had lunch in Hanoi restaurant in the Boutik Mall. The food was authentic, very tasty and plenty. We had Vietnamese cold coffee. It was just like in Vietnam. The atmosphere of the restaurant was simple and shiny because of the big windows looking to the garden. I highly recommend for tasty and healthy food especially for lunch.
