Visited on Saturday 26th May for dinner. We weren't expecting to be given a table on account of how busy it was, but after a 10 minute wait, we were seated and drinks orders promptly taken, to our surprise. At the Hanoi Bike Shop, there...More

We opted for the surprise me menu and the staff did not disappoint! All our food was fabulous and definitely had some things we had never tried before! We will definitely be back for some more surprises!

Last minute decision to come here on the holiday Monday. Great little spot in the sunshine but the pho was the worst I’ve had. Absolutely tasteless. The place stinks of fish sauce too. On the upside the staff are very friendly but there are nicer...More
