“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

We happened upon this place trying it because it was so busy. Ive since found it recommended in most guidebooks and I can see why. Although I rarely follw these recommendations because they can be so outdated!
This place is an absolute gem and massive! The ground floor part goes back quite a long way, but when we were there we were taken through the kitchen, up some stairts, up some more stairs, through some random dark route that I wasnt even sure I was in the same building before being shown into an empty room that I thought was the staff room. Within minutes there was another couple, then a group then another family and we went from being alone and slightly scared in a room to being squashed up sharing a table with complete starngers!
The food is awsome. The waiter we had was a real flirt..with my 14 year old son..so his emabrrassment was worth it. Staff are just so friendly and touchy feely and nothing is too much trouble. Although what you order and what you get may be two different things it comes with such a smile and all tastes so good it didnt matter.
If you are looking for intimacy or privacy dont come here. If you are looking to linger over a leisurley dinner dont come here. If you want excellent affordable food, dont mind literally rubbing shoulders with strangers and love the hussel of people and noise and chaos then this place is a true gem. The only place we ate in twice and with so much choice of earteries thats saying something.

“Best restaurant in Hanoi!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

This is the best restaurant in Hanoi to taste authentic vietnamese cuisine. There is a variety of food available, and it is very cheap! The staff speak good english too and service is good. This is the only restaurant I ate in twice during my stay!

“This is in the top 10???”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Went here tonight based on trip advisor reviews. Service was ok, we didn't have to wait for anything for long. I ordered the BBQ pork ribs and plate of stir fried vegies and my bf ordered the vegie soup and the lemongrass n chilli chicken. Food came out quick (later discovered they heat meals up in the microwave). The soup was gluggy and had no flavour, ive tasted better made by campbells cans. The lemongrass chicken had a lovely flavour, but was quite dry. My ribs also had a nice spicy garlicy flavored basting but they were tough as old boots! The "stir fry" veg was swimming in some gooey sauce (similar to the soup??) and were wilted and overcooked. Very dissapointed considering the talk up this place receives on here.

“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

The selection of vietnamese dishes is vast and all fairly cheap. Food is delicious with good service. The fresh coconut drink is refreshing. Will go back there again.
