Location and contact

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

Just arrived in Hanoi and this restaurant was recommended by our hotel. A great casual restaurant, and the Bun Cha was delicious. Jing our server was friendly, and recommended other things to see in town. We will definitely be back for another meal.

The local northern Vietnamese food was delicious (I had the vegetarian spring roll with soup and the black rice desert). The ladies working there were very nice and Lee was particularly hospitable. I highly recommend. Enjoy :)

We had the grilled pork with noodles, spring rolls, lots of fresh herbs and enjoyed every single mouthful. Wonderful flavours. We went twice! Our favourite meal in Hanoi where there is lots of good food!
