“Safe, good food in heart of the old quarter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

Quite the stop over for backpackers who can't decide if they've had enough of Vietnamese food and want some home comforts. Luckily it serves both, but doesn't feel overly touristy. The Vietnamese food was good, staff friendly and great location for escaping the midday heat when exploring the old quarter.

“Big servings, good eats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We ate here for lunch and they serve big. My nephews had pasta and it came in a very big plate. It was quite good. They also serve Vietnamese dishes and have an happy hour. A must try!

“Gastronomy at it's finest: Excellent Vietnamese Cooking Lesson by an insanely talented culinary artist. Delicious food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

A few friends and i took a cooking lesson at Little Hanoi because it was just down the street from our hotel. What a gem of a find it turned out to be. Their chef, Tin, is a ridiculously talented and ultra friendly chef as well as a great teacher. He taught us to prepare 4 dishes: Chicken Pho(Noodle Soup), Pork Spring Rolls, 5 spice chicken, and Dill Sesame Seed Prawns. Tee walked us to the nearby market to pick the fresh ingredients and then back to lead in the cooking lesson. The small family owned business is extremely charming and the whole experience was surreal. It was Gastronomy at it's finest. I highly recommend going here to take the lesson or if you are just a Foodie looking for a delicious, creative, inexpensive meal.

“Limited atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Great location in Old Quarter, but devoid of atmosphere and quite expensive by Vietnamese standards. Many nearby restaurants of the same name.

“Good lunch-pick in Hanoi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Nice restaurant situated in the old city. Many good courses at resonable prices, good service though the place is rather busy. We primarily had lunch there but you find everything. We visited Vietnam for the first time and learned about "drip-coffee" at Little Hanoi - fantastic.
