Description: Bun bo Nam Bo is marinating the beef, then comes making 'nuoc cham' and the pickled vegetables (shredded carrot and papaya). The pickled vegies is crispy, a little sour and a little sweet, which even makes me eat two bowls of the noodle at once. Remember to pickle the carrot (and papaya first, before marinating the beef) since it takes at least 1 hour to get a good flavor on the carrot.

“Go for it .. You won't be disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Arrived in Vietnam after a long flight and saw this place on tripadvisor. Wanted to experience the real Vietnam and although heavy rain managed to find ok... Although small entrance. As other comments have stated it does what it says on the tin. Great wholesome food at incredible price and value. One option arrives quickly and is delicious and set price. Tables basic and very busy. High turnover and freh food. Fed 4 plus drinks about 8 gbp. Bargain and great intro to Vietnam.

“Best Street Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

My first trip to Asia. 10 days in Shanghai, 10 days in Thailand, 3 days in Seoul and three days in Hanoi. This is the best street food, in fact maybe the best MEAL I've had in Asia, especially considering the price ($2.75). You come here for one dish. There is no other option, but its amazing. I added a little chili sauce from some zip.

“Amazing vietnamise cuisine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Went here with my sister for dinner, had the delicious fried pork noodles but my sister had a dish that the waiter recommended which was just amazing! They served her beef wrapped in lotus leaves accompanied with noodles peanuts veggies greens and a really tasty spicy sauce and rice paper to make your own rolls. Best meal in Asia so far. Good mix of locals and travellers and excellent service. Definitely ask the staff to recommend something you won't be disappointed. Don't miss out!

“Absolutely delicious - and so cheap and fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Food is absolutely delicious - we didn't get a choice and just got brought the dish. It is a fun atmosphere, absolutely packed with everyone squished onto tables. You absolutely must go here. Fantastic!

“Should be #1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

When you look at the top options to eat at Hanoi this is the top choice for local cuisine. Easily the best place to eat, clean, big servings and very cheap.

If you come to Hanoi and don't go here you are silly!
