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.

Last night we attended the pots and pan's fusion night, and it was the best night out we have had in Hanoi since moving here eight weeks ago.
We started down stairs with some cocktails at their happy hour before heading up stairs to the restaurant.
The food was fabulous and a beautiful atmosphere but I think what really made the night special was the service, all the staff were friendly and attentive it really came though that they were proud of their work. Our waitress asked as if we knew of Koto restaurant and explained that each staff member was a graduate from Koto, we were aware of the Koto story but I am sure if you were not it would be explained to you.
After dinner we returned to the down stairs bar and really enjoyed the live music they had.
Pots and pan's is definitely not a cheap night out but it is well worth it, I think it will be our special occasions place and we will certainly return with visiting family and friends. We would also make sure it was a Tuesday night when they have their live music.

Yes it is more silver service- if a bit too much. But the food was exceptional and we certainly enjoyed our evening there. Well worth going.

We went with expectations after a very good experience at Koto. WE thought this was more upmarket with some fusion food. We found the food not nearly as good as Koto. Ambience is good, however dining chairs are VERY uncomfortable ( I di like a comfortable chair when I am going to spend at least 2 hours in a restaurant).I had only ONE good course out of 3 and that was the chocolate mouse for desert. I always rate the chef on the first 2 courses
Would not return

We heard about Pots an Pans from some fellow travellers at our hotel, and I must say this place is just amazing. All the dishes we ordered, 3 course, were amazing. Service was fast and efficient! We took our time for eating and the quantities for two was just perfect. We recommend it!
