We came here on our final evening in Hanoi for dinner after reading other positive reviews. The staff here were so friendly and welcoming and our food was really tasty and reasonably priced, cheaper than many of the other restaurants in Hanoi. The grilled chicken with coconut milk was delicious and highly recommended. This restaurant can be hard to find... More

The hospitality and the food served was of top class. Leo gave us a two minute session of how to enjoy the Vietnamese pancake.... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant which is right next door. It looks small from outside and as we walked in, there are books on the wall on the shelf. We sat on the second floor so we could see the street view. The waitresses are very helpful and friendly. We ordered duck in orange sauce, stir fry vegetable and a... More

This is a lovely cosy little restaurant that was literally right beside our hotel (the Oriental Central). The menu is delicious and very tasty. Try the Vietnamese Crepes! Amazing! As for the staff, we were served on both occasions by the same waitress (didnt get her name) but she was really friendly and funny and went above and beyond to... More

Chef Hung is amazing. We had done other cooking classes (in Hoi an) but this was next level. The food was to die for, we made five dishes from scratch and learnt so much along the way from Hung about Vietnamese cuisine. The market was great, if there were things we hadn't seen/tasted before, Hung would make sure to explain... More

I like the foods of this restaurant located in the very accessible place (old quarter). The restaurant is on the 2nd floor and 1st floor looks like a old book store.

What an amazing day of cooking. We got picked up from our hotel from our wonderful chef. He took us straight to the restaurant and then we got to decide what we would cook. We chose to cook the fresh Spring rolls, a beef pho and banana leaf chicken salad. The chef organised for us to travel around the old... More

Chef Hung was fantastic, and is assistant Nhi a delight. Had a wonderful experience,... More

We are here last night and it's one of the best meals I've had in south east Asia. The staff are friendly and welcoming. They were also very understanding about my coeliacs and helped me order something safe!
