Our Hanoi's guide tipped us about "Quan An Ngon". In Vietnamese, "Quan An Ngon" means "delicious restaurant" and it was indeed a "delicious" experience! It is quite busy, with queues to enter - what generally is a good sign. Inside, different stations with such an...enourmous variety of exotic dishes, that we were sorry our guide wasn't with us to lead the way. But, we managed and everything went all right. We enjoyed "Quan An Ngon", its buffet style and friendly service, with reasonable prices. Some items can be quite spicy, so check before helping yourself! Bon Appétit!More

Bad services. Bad attitude. Overpriced food. Untrained employees. Felt unwelcome. Highly not recommended!

This is a huge and very busy place. Has a lot of local cuisine. Service can get better, but it's OK. Food is good and quantity is great, making optimal for trying and sharing different plates.

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel staff. It was about 9pm when we arrived and the place was very busy. We were seated quickly and enjoyed reading the extensive menu which had reasonably priced dishes. There were many locals at the restaurant as well...as tourists.More

We had a time finding this place but we eventually got there and waited for 30 minutes. Service was a bit frazzled with the end of the evening crush of customers. We shared Morning Glory Vegetables with garlic, my wife had shrimp and pork Vietnamese...Crepe and all the fixings and I had Fried Fish with scallions, peanuts, rice noodles and soy sauce. We both had Vietnamese Beer to wash it down. Dessert was sticky rice with coconut and banana. Everything was tasty, fresh, yummy and quite delicious.More

My hotel highly recommended this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Perhaps it had to do with the threat of COVID-19, but everyone exercised extreme caution and cleanliness when entering the restaurant and when serving anything. It was nice to see. The food was very good,...the mango shake was exceptional! I thought the service was quick. However, once everything was served, the staff never came back to see if we needed anything, which is customary in ANY nice restaurant. One thing that was a little disconcerting is that the cashier short-changed us after paying the bill. At least they were honest and gave us the difference. I recommend Quantizing An Ngon, but count your change before leaving!More

Our guide left us at our hotel (Mercure) in Hanoi, with a great tip- Pick a restaurant which has a good amount of people going in, you’ll know it’s popular and the food will be fresh! This restaurant ticked all the boxes- visible from the...road, a line of people waiting and efficient polite staff who gave us an idea of the time it would take. The place was buzzing! Being unfamiliar with the food, we surreptitiously peeked at what the locals were eating and the aromas, colours and variety was mind boggling! We finally settled for Chicken and Beef Pho, the local Vietnamese noodle soup which was bursting with flavour! Fried Spring Rolls with pork, Rice Paper Rolls, Mixed Seafood Noodles, stir fried Morning Glory! These trials were over two days and oh so delicious! However I do recommend lunch over dinner, as the servers have a little more time to guide you in your meal choices. Great first choice for authentic Vietnamese food!More

We have been coming to Ho Chi Minh city multiple times a year. Quan Ngon used to be our favorite for excellent locations, good varieties of food and fast services. Location is the same but food and services were degraded in the last 2-3 years....We have not returned there during our last 4 four trips because we now enjoy many more better places. Businesses in HCM City are very competitive. So, newer and better restaurants will pop up frequently if we spend time to look for them.More

The food is very average here, the restaurant is very noisy too. The staffs are too busy and take a long time for anything. It is okay , not too special

I ate here with my business partners during my recent stay in Hanoi. It is a pleasant, outdoor dining experience with an open sky and lanterns hanging from above during the evening. The food was delicious Vietnamese fare, but the highlight for me was the...shrimp pancakes. It’s difficult to describe, but it’s like a large cooked orange crepe that was rolled into 8-10 egg roll shapes. The beef and pork with our rice was perfectly cooked, and their rice noodle egg roll wraps were also a hit with our group. The only real drawback was their concern over the corona virus. They checked our temperature when we arrived, sanitized our table and everyone wore masks, even though we were outdoors. I understand their concern, but it was a little disconcerting. Good choice for big groups. You will love the service, food and atmosphere.More
