Went to old Hanoi on the recommendation of Lonely Planet. Food was well cooked, presented nicely and tasted great. Decoration of the restaurant was consistent and well done. Staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful.

We were on a tour of Vietnam so had no say about this restaurant, this was our last night as a group before we all headed off in all directions. I wish I had stayed in the hotel. When we got there, saw Gordon Ramsay's picture outside it, oh this should be great, as he has so much to say... More

We ate here on a Sunday night and although the restaurant was quiet we were not disappointed... The staff were so friendly and attentive turning on the AC and pointing any fan our directionso as not to overheat. Thanh, explained to us every meal choice we made how to eat it to appreciate the flavours and we were not disappointed.... More

Having read the reviews and the mention of Gordon Ramsey, we believed we were in for a delicious treat, but were extremely disappointed. The meal and the service were extremely medioca.

We were interested in the connection with Gordon Ramsey having filmed here once. We were the only ones in the resturant at the time sitting outside. It is quaint and has an old world feel to it. We ordered fried crab spring rolls, sizzling rice pancakes with shrimp in a clay pot, grilled pork skewers, a Mojito and a glass... More

This is a charming lil restaurant - cozy, quiet and I love the ambience! We had Banana blossom with chicken salad (nice, refreshing, healthy!), steam rice pancake with pork and mushroom, grilled chicken on lemon grass skewers (love the aroma though the meat was a tad bit dry), grilled fish old hanoi style, stewed aubergine with minced pork, rice and...

A friend and I went here on a Saturday night while in Hanoi. We happened to stumble upon it and are so glad to have had the chance. The staff was warm and welcoming. They suggested a few favorite dishes that were all delicious! The chef came out to introduced himself and check to make sure the meal was good.... More

I had read mixed reviews of this restaurant but wanted to try it for a change and also because of the connection with Gordon Ramsay and his recommendation and TV series. The staff were very welcoming from the first and continued to be really helpful and sweet throughout. I was disappointed at first because although we had booked a table,... More

We ate here on a very cold, wet January evening. The restaurant stayed open for us and we were the only two people there. The food was very good and the waitress was very nice. However there was a lack of atmosphere due to the lack of people and I would have liked to have gone back when it was... More
