I have tried some fine dining restaurants in Hanoi but none of them can compare to this one. The food was beautifully presented. All was excellent from starter, main courses to desert. I would highly recommend beef carpaccio, tuna salad, duck with orange sauce and creme brulee. The staff was very friendly. I was more than happy to know that... More

Went here twice for lunch. You can get away for $10 if you stick to the lunch set menu. First time was super. Appetizer was two very good spring rolls and the main was their crispy skin sea bass.. Excellent. Second time was a small salad with a few slivers of chicken and a coconut sauce. Good not much chicken.... More

Fantastic food and great staff- so friendly. The carpaccio of beef to start was totally yummy and the rest of the meal was fabulous. The staff gave me a birthday cake as a surprise topped off with 3 feet high sparklers! 5 star - definitely recommend!

One of the best places we are in Vietnam. The presentation and attention to detail on every day was clear to see. We opted for the set menu which is great value for money. The staff were exceptional throughout our meal. You must eat here!

We went here with our kids did not expect it to be as "fancy" as it turned out to be. It is a nice restaurant with a nice menu. The menu however is tailored towards a more mature audience, our two kids 11 and 13 both ended up ordering steak and it was not what they expected. I also found... More

Description
Pots ‘n Pans is about innovation. Vietnamese cuisine infused with an international flair.Our food takes the best ideas from modern Vietnamese and puts a new spin on them. The flavours are familiar but done differently. We don’t want to detract from what we believe to be the core of Vietnamese cuisine which is a big emphasis on fresh and local ingredients. However, we believe that the produce found in Vietnam should lend itself to a wider range of cooking techniques and presentation.Pots ‘n Pans is a dynamic partnership between Know One Teach One (KOTO) and its training program graduates along with its international partner; Small Giants. KOTO is a not-for-profit organisation in Vietnam that is changing the lives of street and disadvantaged youth through vocational training. Small Giants is a boutique Australian impact investment company that is dedicated to businesses that are changing the world.
