“Great little restaurant, authentic Vietnamese”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Great food variety and tasted very good and authentic.
The atmosphere was nice (we sat outside on the balcony on the 2nd fl). A few dishes we wanted to order were no available (due to the Tet holiday we suspect) but overall a great experience. Oh, and excellent value for money too. Would recommend. Is in old quarter near the lake.

“Top of my list....”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

I have eaten at a lot of restaurants in Hanoi and around Vietnam. I first went to Restaurant 96 last November on my birthday. We returned last night in celebration of my return to Hanoi and because we were starving for good Vietnamese food. We were not disappointed.

96 Restaurant is in an old French Colonial style four-story structure that is just a charming ambiance.

The food here is as good as it gets. The staff are very hospitable and helpful. Our meal was great. Glad we chose it again.
