Food is over rated. Expensive. Not value for money. Totally no service at all. We don't owe them a living. They forgot.

The fish was nice enough, but really nothing to get excited about. They were so busy, we felt quite ignored. It was confusing as westerners to establish exactly what we had purchased. For 3 people and 3 beers, over 750.000.a nice local experience but be...More

This is the oldest Cha Ca restaurant on Cha Ca street, and maybe Hanoi! It is a bit pricey at 150,000 but is well worth the money! The server cooks the catfish in turmeric and dill at your table! It is such a wonderful experience...More

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

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
