We came across this by chance and so glad we did. Menu has a great range of options and both of our dishes were delicious, with subtle spices and flavourings. Service as attentive but not pushy. Highly recommended.

The food wasn't too bad. As we had a papaya salad at lunch at another restaurant, this one wasn't as good but still tasty. The kids noodles were good and the vegetable soup needed soy added to give it some more flavour. The aubergine in ginger was to die for though. Really enjoyed the flavours of the dish. This is...

Good portion and friendly atmosphere. It is an authentic place where to enjoy tasty dishes. We loved the grilled aubergines which didn't see on the menu of other restaurants during our stay in three different Vietnamese cities.

This restaurant is set in the busy Old Quarter. We ate here several times during our two visits to Hanoi and tried a lot of things on the menu. Everything was fresh tasty and superbly presented. They obviously cater for the more exotic tastes with crickets and frogs on the menu but I could not bring myself to try these... More

We found it at the Countryside Restaurant. We ordered two chicken dishes - chicken with lemon grass and chili, and chicken with cashews, along with steamed rice. Everything was well presented and...

We we're recommended by our hotel receptionist to the small and quaint restaurant. The feel of the place of bamboo and simple decor provided a good ambiance of the countryside. The food was even better. There were four of us and ordered for 6 as we wanted to try so many dishes, All were exquisite and cooked with all the... More
