Description: Pots ‘n Pans is about innovation. Vietnamese cuisine infused with an international flair.Our food takes the best ideas from modern Vietnamese and puts a new spin on them. The flavours are familiar but done differently. We don’t want to detract from what we believe to be the core of Vietnamese cuisine which is a big emphasis on fresh and local ingredients. However, we believe that the produce found in Vietnam should lend itself to a wider range of cooking techniques and presentation.Pots ‘n Pans is a dynamic partnership between Know One Teach One (KOTO) and its training program graduates along with its international partner; Small Giants. KOTO is a not-for-profit organisation in Vietnam that is changing the lives of street and disadvantaged youth through vocational training. Small Giants is a boutique Australian impact investment company that is dedicated to businesses that are changing the world.

“Tasty and beautiful presented.”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

I was invited to dinner here with some of my friends. The ambience is sophisticated and cosy, very clever interior design. The food was a different taste on all things Vietnamese, the atmosphere was great and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The manager gave us some tips on ordering, which were just right. The restaurant is stylish, however also good value, the food was impeccable, dishes a fusion of Western and Vietnamese taste sensations. Both dishes were tasty and beautiful presented. Dessert was outstanding as well. This restaurant has just opened but it is already our favourite.

“wonderful experience”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

It is a special experience dining at Pots'n'Pans. The food is beauiful and a lovely and well balanced combination of Vietnamese and Western cuisine. The service is professional and attentive without being intrusive. The decor and surroundings make the whole meal feel like a very special event. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a wonderful night out.

“Social Enterprise meets fine fine dining”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

This is a fantastic place that I think raises the bar for Hanoi, there are some other fine dining restaurants that were good but adding the great décor and the fact it is a social enterprise pushes it over the top. Well designed layout discreet but not too quiet, attentive but not overbearing service and delicious courses of food not too heavy or light. Well made cocktails downstairs followed by great set dinner upstairs (Set B) and a tour of the open kitchen/ chef table on 3rd floor, a must when in Hanoi.

Had the sirloin with mash, $33USD. Cooked to perfection. Nice wine list to go with it. A must for a special occasion or that special someone :)
