“Fantastic Cooking Class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

We did a cooking class here whilst staying in Hanoi (menu 1 I think) and had a great time. We were shown around a Hanoi food market to collect our ingredients on a cyclo and then shown how to prepare and cook the food. A brilliant chance to learn about Vietnamese cooking from a talented chef, definitely recommend it to anyone visiting!

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

We ate here on recommendation from our hotel nearby. More expensive than some other restaurants and definitely more than eating at the many street stalls/restaurants but still a relatively cheap meal and we really enjoyed it we returned again. The spring rolls are good and I recommend the crispy pancakes served ready to roll into your own rice paper rolls. Some people next to us got the hot pot dish and it looked really good too :)

“Great taste but reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

We thought we ate at the best restaurant in Hanoi the night before we visited orchid. This is really a great place to eat with family or when you want to try some traditional Vietnamese food. Strongly recommend! Hanoi style fish must order! Super tender and you wouldn't even know that you are eating fish because it melt in your mouth in 2 seconds.

“Cosy dinner, good service, great food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Restaurant was tucked in right next to our hotel and we missed it until we read some of the positive reviews on here. It is spread over four floors with the top being a cooking school. We had a lovely window seat on the second floor overlooking a busy junction in the heart of the old quarter which provided constant entertainment. Atmosphere is quiet and relaxed. Modern, mainstream, good quality Vietnamese food.

“Good choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

A few doors down from our hotel, walking past when we heard some very positive comments from diners exiting so we did a 180 and walked in. We were seated upstairs, clean and nicely decorated. Service was friendly and efficient although food did take a little longer than we expected given that there were only 8 other diners. Some awesome choices on the menu and good value prices, enjoyed our meal thoroughly.
