There was clearly a set menu for tourist but just as well since we don't understand their language. River fish was well marinated to remove the mud smell (each person only gets 5 slices for ~US$8). Everything else was pretty ordinary Vietnamese fare/taste. Not worth...making a special trip down.More

We went at 8pm and was lucky to get a table immediately. When ordering, the servers were not very patient and even got unhappy when we asked for the normal menu and not the tourist menu as warned in some reviews I read. They kept...saying that they only have one menu which is a fixed set price that charges per person (you get a portion of fish and a side of spring rolls). They told us they only have ONE MENU and only FISH. In the end our group of 7 managed to order 4 sets+3 portions of fish (they will serve all the fish in the metal dish) since we didn’t need so many spring rolls. Food was nice. We later saw other tables metal dish had a variety of pork and maybe even squid. Not sure why this was not offered to us🤷🏻‍♀️More

Our big family of 13 all enjoyed the dinner so much. Really good fish on the hot pan with a lot of herbs and rice noodles- staff are helpful to show us how to eat. We came after the city tour and our tour guide...recommended the restaurantMore

Stay away from this place!! We were given a set price menu that was for tourists. We asked the table next to us how much a portion cost and they said 140k vnd; they planned to charge us twice as much as locals’ prices. We...said we want to get what they’re getting and asked why the prices were different; the waiter literally said we get the tourist menu. To their surprises, we spoke Vietnamese. Long story short, we got our food after they agreed on adjusting the prices for two portions. Mind you, they showed us a second menu after we asked to confirm the price! The food was a disappointment to say the least, some pieces of fish on pan and stir fried at table. customer service is a joke with these little thugs. If you want to get ripped off, at least get great food for it. Never again..More

I fully understand and speak Vietnamese. This place has TWO menus, a tourist menu and a local menu. When they see tourist they will give you the tourist price. I don’t mind paying for good food, however no tourist should be taken advantage of. The...people here should be more honest with their prices. The food was mediocre. There are other restaurants who are honest that deserve your business. You have been informed, it’s up to you to make the choice I dined here on 12/21/22More

I was skeptical - more than one site and page said this is a MUST to experience. I almost skipped it due to lack of time, but I am adding my voice to the crowd - You Absolutely Must Dine Here When You Are in...Hanoi! You know how good it is? They only have this dish in the menu. That's it, you can't order anything else. It will cost around 120-140k dong per person, but you probably won't even be able to consume the entire thing. Fish pieces are fried on the stovetop, and then a large bowl of dill and other greens are added and slow fried until they make a heavenly mix of flavor. You also get rice noodles, nuts, chili, lemon, bean sprouts to add to your liking. Can't compare it to anything else I've had anywhere and easily the best meal I had while in HAN.More

You will not be disappointed! The Cha Ca (grilled fish) meal was delicious with the fresh dill and spring onions. You don’t need to order anything else, except maybe a beer!

We drove from Ninh Binh and arrived in Hanoi at about 3pm and it was to our delight that the restaurant is still opened. The fish dishes are unique to Hanoi and they taste good. Wr were only shown one set menu (in English) though...the hotel concierge says there are options for Vietnamese.More

Very unique dining experience. Truly enjoyed the fried turmeric fish with dill and spring onion and noodles. The spring rolls are great too. The place only set 1 type of set meal! Must try Hanoi dish and restaurant!

Unique place - only one dish - a fish - however it is really worthwhile to go and try. It is cooked on the table with a set of spices and noodles. Great experience, very tasty and delicious.

We arrived at 7pm and they were almost full even though the restaurant is 5 stories high, a testament to their popularity. Encircled by fried fish, copious amount of dill and spring onions were sautéed on the pan at the table. You then assemble the...dish in your bowl, starting with a bit of herbs, then noodles and garnishing with peanuts, followed by a generous sprinkle of fish or shrimp sauce. I much prefer the fish sauce as the shrimp sauce can taste a more pungent to the uninitiated. So scrumptious and it was so cheap (sorry, the Singaporean in me going “cheap, cheap😆). This was my introduction to this communal style Vietnamese fish dish which I will definitely eat again on me next trip to Hanoi.More

The title of my post says it all. Even non-fish lovers will be converted. But yes, the portions are a tad small, so perhaps a group of 4 persons can order 5 pax portion. Location is quite accessible and near to cafes and near small...shops.More

This place is all that it’s been talked about and written about from many people. The only negative thing is that the price is a bit steep for a few bits of fried fish - but it’s delicious. The accompanying additional items and ingredients are...terrific - kind of like a Korean BBQ side dishes and noodles. The atmosphere is lovely. The service is attentive but not overbearing. English is widely spoken by the staff. It’s a bit western touristy style yet I saw many Thai folks also enjoying their time there. It’s definitely worth checking out at least once but be prepared to dig into your pocket.More
