Bun Cha Ta is a Vietnamese dish of grilled pork and noodle, which is thought to have originated from Hanoi, Vietnam. Bun cha is served with grilled fatty pork (cha) over a plate of white rice noodle (bun) and herbs with a side dish of dipping sauce. The dish was described in 1959 by Vietnamese food writer Vu Bang (1913–1984) who described Hanoi as a town "transfixed by bun cha." Hanoi Bun Cha Ta ’s first bun cha restaurant was on Gia Ngu street, Hoan Kiem District, in Hanoi's Old Quarter and moved to 21 Nguyen Huu Huan street now Bun cha is popular in the Northern region of Vietnam. In the South, a similar dish of rice vermicelli and grilled meat is called bun thit nuong

Best Bun Cha we’ve had in Vietnam. Staff are friendly, food was delicious and the vibe was lovely. A must do if you’re in Hanoi.

A great way to try Hanoi’s most famous dish! The meat was very tasty. I’m not a fan of rice based noodles but I really liked this. Note this place focuses solely on bun cha, and I can imagine the the sweet and sour flavours...may not be for everyone. The only complaint was the food wasn’t that hot. The staff were excellent and spoke English very well. They clearly get a lot of foreign visitors. A true example of great customer service, which is rare in Vietnam these days.More

Lovely food, good size servings. Friendly helpful service. A variety of options available and positively it was a completely Gluten Free menu which was helpful for some of the family. Appears to be a tourist only establishment

We randomly chose this restaurant and it did not disappoint. We sat on the second floor and ordered number 1 and number 10. The service is EXCELLENT! Linh is awesome. His English is excellent. He was so helpful. Made suggestions on what to eat and...made the experience so great. We sat on the second and had to take off our shoes, which wasn’t something I liked, but overall it was well decorated with good ambiance. It is affordable!More

This restaurant is a must. They get a lot of tours and bookings from influencers for their food popularity. Our family was recommended by a guide book. We went and didn’t leave the restaurant disappointed. The Bun Cha was so delicious and fresh that our...family came back the next day to have more of it!More

Really like this place, which we went to for our last dinner during our Sapa/Hanoi holidays. It's located not far from our hotel in the old quarters. Made a booking via whatsapp which was promptly attended to. Arrived earlier than appointed time but was seated...without issues. Service from the young-ish staff was friendly and welcoming. We ordered the 'full option' plus a seafood springroll. I only remember having bun cha once before on a previous trip to Vietnam, but i certainly don't remember it being this good. When served, we were told how to enjoy the dish. The herbs, and rice vermicelli, the springrolls and BBQ pork sang in unison when dipped in the sauce (primarily fish sauce). Really good. After the meal, we ordered 'happy drinks' of rice wine whisky. Smelled potent, but thankfully, it did not come close to knocking us out.More

If you are staying in a hotel, I would ask them to ring them to find out as this may be during their Tet holiday. When we asked about the Tet arrangements in general there seemed to be a lot of variation from closing a day... More
