Description: Pots ‘n Pans is about innovation. Vietnamese cuisine infused with an international flair.Our food takes the best ideas from modern Vietnamese and puts a new spin on them. The flavours are familiar but done differently. We don’t want to detract from what we believe to be the core of Vietnamese cuisine which is a big emphasis on fresh and local ingredients. However, we believe that the produce found in Vietnam should lend itself to a wider range of cooking techniques and presentation.Pots ‘n Pans is a dynamic partnership between Know One Teach One (KOTO) and its training program graduates along with its international partner; Small Giants. KOTO is a not-for-profit organisation in Vietnam that is changing the lives of street and disadvantaged youth through vocational training. Small Giants is a boutique Australian impact investment company that is dedicated to businesses that are changing the world.

“Good food. Great venue for dining.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Portions are big & you can ask them to split it for sharing. & still keep the presentation.
I like their lotus seed soup, the sea bass & also the burger.

“One of the best fine dining restaurants in Hanoi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Great ambiance, delicious food and excellent customer service. What else do you need for a great night dining out in Hanoi?I have to say their pannacotta is amazing, it's a must try! Go for seared scallops if you are fan of seafood.

“Style and substance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Pots'n'Pans may have its roots as a social enterprise, but dismiss any notions of sackcloth worthiness. This restaurant delivers top quality and inventive food, with charming and professional service. A super stylish haven which would not be out of place in any major city - highly recommended!

“Fine Vietnamese Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Visited there with my fiancée and had a wonderful evening.

A lot of restaurants were closed during the Lunar New Year so we booked this one. Turned out ok.

We tried the set menu. I had a fried prawn roll which was really good.

The others were good too.

We liked the atmosphere.

Oh, 1 little thing, we found a piece of plastic in the dessert which was the only thing to complain about. The manager did apologize and offered us free vietnamese coffee.

Nice dinner, great service.

“Excellent and Indulgent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

One of the higher priced restaurants in Hanoi, having visited Verticale, Badiane, El Gaucho and other on the upper end of the scale I can comfortably say that Pots n Pans is the best option for a special night out in Hanoi.

The beef two ways is served with an amazing fondant potato and I have had to order multiple times, The Pork Belly and Tasting Plate equally delectable. As a big Scallop lover I continue to go back for them. This is the place I bring anyone who visits Vietnam for their Fine dining experience.

Service was also fantastic and cocktails well made, atmosphere is calm and sophisticated.
