Description: Bun bo Nam Bo is marinating the beef, then comes making 'nuoc cham' and the pickled vegetables (shredded carrot and papaya). The pickled vegies is crispy, a little sour and a little sweet, which even makes me eat two bowls of the noodle at once. Remember to pickle the carrot (and papaya first, before marinating the beef) since it takes at least 1 hour to get a good flavor on the carrot.

This was good food and very reasonable pricing but if your into cleanliness you might want to look at other options . Staff was fair but spoke almost no English so can be a bit challenging getting what you want. Overall the food was good and worth the short comings in other areas so a thumbs up if your not a clean freak.

We followed reviews and came here - it was ok, tasty, easy to order, plenty of room, but it wasn't the best version of the dish we ad in Hanoi. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the tea, but maybe not worth a special trip.

We walked all over the Old Quarter to try and find this little tiny restaurant and boy are we glad we did. You really do feel like you are one of the locals eating here. This restaurant only makes 1 dish, Bun Bo Nam Bo. You can watch the food being made as you enter.The place was crowded. We found the only available seat at the back of the restaurant. Since we were only 2 people we sat at a table with other locals. Our food arrived with some chop sticks and we devoured our meal. At less than $2.00 per serving you really can't beat the price and quality of food. It is worth trying to find this restaurant when visiting the Old Quarter of Hanoi.

It's good and reliable Bun Bo Nam Bo - at less than $2.00 per serving....what's not to like? I wouldn't put it on a bucket list, so to speak...but if you're looking for reliable noodles in the Old Quarter of Hanoi, you'll get them here.

The Food was o.k. maybe a little bit more. The Staff speaks no or only really bad English so that it is sometimes difficult to order side dishes or Drinks.

Many locals eat here so you can watch the typical Vietnamese food culture. Was there two times.

To check out the Bun Bo Nam Bo when you are around the area it is ok to visit.

Prices:

Bun Bo Nam Bo = 55.000 Dong
Beer = 25.000 - 28.000 Dong
Coke/Water = ~ 15.000 Dong
Nem Chua = 6.000 Dong
