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.

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!

Good springrolls. Too thin mango lassi. Fried rice w vegetable is extremely tasteless and i didnt even want to eat half witch is extremely un-usual. My boyfriends chicken dish was okay, but again, nothing special. Disapointed by the standard of this restaurant after visiting..

Orchid is easy to find in Hoan Kiem, near several other restaurants and hotels. You'll be surprised to see that the ground floor is full of books. We sat on the top floor by the window, so we could enjoy the view. The staff was, as always, very friendly, and able to communicate well in English. The service was efficient... More

After trying a few places, we felt that this was the best restaurant for local food. The pho and stew fish were the best. We will certainly make another stop before we head home. Price is reasonable. Ambience and service were great!
