Enjoyed some delicious fish at this restaurant, complete with rice paper for do-it-yourself dipping and wrapping. Went down very well with a nice cold Vietnamese beer. Generous serving size. Friendly and attentive staff. Conveniently located in the Hoan Kiem District.

We recently attended the Orchid cooking class with Chef Hung who was incredible. The tour to the market was something special and one of the best tours I've ever done. Chef Hung explained everything along the way and taught us how to make tasty Vietnamese food. I highly recommend doing this when in Hanoi and ask for Chef Hung if... More

We visited on the back of the Trip Advisor reviews. We had a wonderful meal and great service from Han. The Hanoi style Bassa fish was fabulous as were the Hanoi spring rolls. If you are in Hanoi, I would recommend this restaurant.

Booked a AM half day tour only the night before and it turned out to be quite fun! For USD60, we were brought on a cyclo ride (trishaw-like), went to the local markets for some tutoring on local culture, tasted some local bites, and finally brought back to the hotel for the actual cooking. For a total class size of... More

This restaurant was recommended by our tour guide as a place for lunch after our tour and the food was fantastic. We had spring rolls, shrimp and cashew nuts and fried rice. Great service too.

We went here 3 times during our stay in Hanoi; that is how satisfied we were. The food is great and at reasonable prices. The staff was very friendly. We were sitting on the 1st floor next to the window and could follow all the life on the street below.

3 of us had a great time with Chef Hung. He is humour and responsible. The dinner was great and environment also not bad. He is patient to show us around the market and explained the cooking process.

The food in this restaurant was slightly disappointing, given that it’s also a cooking school. Our mistake may’ve been in ordering the grilled prawns which came unpeeled, and there is always a degree of frustration and annoyance in working a hot prawn from its carapace. But there was, in any event, nothing particularly notable or memorable about the meal. The... More

Our group of three prepared 4 dishes at our morning class. Chef Tien picked me up at my hotel and gave us an overview of our program complete with apron and recipes. We made Pho Bo, Spring Rolls, Hanoi Fish and Green Papaya Salad. It was very organized and we had a great time learning how to prepare our favorite... More
