“Lovely food”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

We ate here before getting on the overnight train to Hue - and it set us up nicely! The meal was varied and the flavours were delicious, and it was very reasonably priced. That may however have been because the fuse tripped and we were sat in candlelight with no air con! Either way it was a great meal and the staff coped admirably with the setback...

“Authentic cooking class”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

I traveled to Vietnam in Feb 2012 (I have made if review late so I could only select May 2012) and my sister booked a cooking class at Old Hanoi restaurant. The place was a little hard to find, and as we had booked this outside our tour we had to make our own way to the restaurant. Once we arrived we got a hot drink and sat outside waiting for our instructor. The cooking class was excellent, we did 4 dishes from scratch and there was so much food I could barely walk out of there. We tried and tested some classic Vietnamese cuisine and were provided a recipe booklet to follow during the class. This was a private class which cost $40 each. This included the cooking class with all ingredients and a visit to the local markets to view the ingredients that is used in the recipes.

Recipes were easy to follow and our instructor was very patient with us. There was a slight language barrier but we got through the class easy enough. Also the class was taken outside, so it was a bit cold outside but that wasn't too much of an issue as we were cooking and eating to keep warm.

Highly recommend this restaurant and cooking class.

“Great cooking class”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

We booked this cooking class through our travel agent Buffalo Tours, and it was the best cooking class we did in Vietnam. Very hands on and it also includes a tour of the local street market.

“Greta Dining”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

This After a long day of touring, we needed a good meal. We were not disappointed with the Old Hanoi Restaurant.: The setting was great it looked like an old French Villa during the French stay in that city, with , what I suspect, the decor with the period furniture this added to the atmosphere. We had a seven course meal, with the highlight being the rice pancakes with gilled pork and the deep friend prawns. The service was excellent with the grace that I expected. It was a great experience and I would not hesitate to go back at the drop of a hat.
