Only one dish in this restaurant and it cost 170,000VND per person! The portion was so small it can’t fill any stomach. And there’s a lot of locals there. We suspect local and tourist are priced differently! Horrible service as well. Avoid at all cost...More

This is my first time writing a review but felt compelled to do so. I had wanted to try this famous restaurant which only serves one dish "cha Ca" - a fried tumeric marinated dish. It is so good that the restaurant only serves this...More

Serves one dish. And it's good. Everything else is crummy in this old, rickety restaurant. Bad service. But i love it.

I'd read so many recommendations about this place that I didn't check it out on TripAdvisor. What a mistake. Indifferent service, bland, dull overpriced food. Advertisement at the front offers free beer (which should have been a clue as to the quality) but we were...More

My favourite dish is cha ca and I heard lots about this century old shop, La Vong at 14 Cha Ca Street, i saw many other post of la cong and they are many fakes. Though simple dish, but it's flavourful and I simple love...More

As at many specialty restaurants in Hanoi, they ONLY do ONE dish, and they do it well. No menus, just sauteed fish in turmeric, vermicelli noodles and herbs. Wait staff will confirm the number of diners, and then the food is delivered. Finish cooking at...More

Once 'the' place for Cha Ca, but I won't be visiting here again. Too many good Cha Ca restaurants with better food, quality, access and most of all, service.

No!! Everyone please be aware that the restaurant across the road is a scam. We were recommended to go to this restaurant and ended up at the fake one in error. They have very cleverly slightly changed their name to "Cha Ca... More
