Found this place using trip advisor and it lived up to all the top reviews- started with the Hanoi spring rolls and they were amazing, the salad looked like artwork. I have stir fried veggies and my friend had the catfish sweet and sour, both were delicious. I also had a ginger tea that was outstanding- the whole experience was... More

Tamarind duck, pho soup and papaya salad were perfect and so far the best we tried in Vietnam. We saw that current restaurant is included into city food tour.

Orchid cooking class and Chef Hung was a wonderful experience. Our 4 hours was spent learning about the Vietnamese cuisine we were learning to cook, going to the market with Chef Hung by pedi-cab to collect ingredients for dishes, preparing the dishes and finally eating the dishes. Cooked Pho Bo, fresh spring rolls, green mango salad, and Hanoi style grilled... More

My grandson and I were guests of our host Vietnam Backroad Bicycle Tours. The lunch was all inclusive so am unable to comment on value but I am sure price modest and yet quality was excellent. The menu included soup, papaya salad, Spring rolls, mixed veggies, chicken with honey, grilled fish, rice and some water melon for dessert. All dishes... More

One of several stops during our street food tour. This particular place is more of a sit down restaurant. It was the best food we had on the tour. The spring rolls in particular were outstanding and you get to roll your own. Very fun.

This food was just incredible!! Would highly recommend this place. The pho here was by far the best one I had in Vietnam.

This class was a wonderful experience. It was fun to see the market through a local's eyes and to take the food back to the restaurant to cook it. I was able to feed my family for lunch with what I made and I have since made two of the dishes at home in the states. Chef Huing was wonderful.

Our hotel arranged for us to do the orchid cooking class. A staff member collected us from our hotel and walked us through the busy old quarter streets to the restaurant. Here we were joined by another lovely tourist from korea and met with the chef to plan our menu. We then caught cyclos to the fresh food market streets... More

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.
