We have ordered spring roll and grilled pork. There was only few customers there but their service was slow. The spring roll taste OK but the grilled pork too oily and fatty, the oil still dripping when it was served.

The food was so good along with the calming atmosphere in the rush and bustle of Hanoi. We went twice - second night not as good but lots of people and a couple of the staff didn't understand English as well.

What a dissapointment after the rave reviews. This place is made for tourists and has nothing to do with authentic Vietnamese food. As a Vietnamese I can know. We had the beef pho which didn’t even have the bean sprouts and greens. Also way to...More
