“Excellent value for delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

The Hanoi is a regular lunchtime haunt for their set menu, which at 11,50 euros is a bargain for a 4 course feast of Vietnamese food, including a very decent house wine. There is always a choice of 2 starters - salad or soup as the season goes, or spring rolls. A great favourite is their musi, finely chopped seasoned duck served on lettuce leaves which is the current offer. Next course are steamed dumplings with mustard sauce, and the main course offers 6 or 7 fish or meat options, all good, served with rice cooked in leaves. Desert is generally fresh fruit salad, or candied apple fritters.
In the evening, there is an option of 2 tasting menus or à la carte. The duck is excellent, as are the scallops.
The restaurant itself is elegantly decorated, with fine linen and good service. I personally find the lighting level a bit lower than I would like at lunchtime in particular, but this is really my only quibble.
Overall, highly recommended.

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2011

After many (three weeks) good to ok dinners out in Barcelona, we happened onto this restaurant, which is more or less across the street from the apartment we rented. What a surprise. The interior is nicely decorated and thw service perfect.

We had the menu for 23€ with a delicious bottle of local white wine (14€ and the most expensive on the wine list).

Having travelled extensively and often in Asia, I know what to expect from good Asian food. This expectaton is rarely fulfilled.... Tonight Hanoi was a delightful surprise. Interesting textures and flavors were present in each dish. My only slight negative commen might be that the Peking duck could have been moister and more flavorful, but this is really reaching as it was also delectable.

In the end a nearly perfect Vietnamese dinner was rounded off with a bill of 60€!!

Incredible!
