“Great cookery class experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

We did a cookery class with Mr Tien in July. What a great experience. Because we wanted to cook Pho, after we got the broth on the cooker, Mr Tien took us out to the local markets to get some more ingredients. We had a great time wandering through the streets, stopping every now and them to shop or trying some unusual roadside delicacies we hand't tried before.
Mr tien and his helpers (at one stage there were three of them to two of us) were really helpfull and took the time needed to explain everything. The end result was just great, tasty, fresh and we've even cook two of the dishes a few times since hetting home. Highly reccommended!

“Lots of fun & great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

My wife and I wanted to do a local cuisine cooking class whilst in Hanoi. We were looking for a restaurant for dinner on the first night and came across Orchid, seeing that they were not only a restaurant but offered a cooking class as well. So we went there for dinner that night and met Mr Tien as well as booked in for the afternoon cooking class.

The food was fantastic. Mr Tien came and talked to us about the cooking class and we chose the dishes we wanted to learn. The next day we came and met the chef, travelled to the markets with him, and then came back and prepared all of the food. We then ate everything - and all for US$50 pp. Great deal. Highly recommend it.

I've eaten at this restaurant many time with my friends and we are all happy with their services,
The restaurant is very cozy decorated with bamboo and silk that make a warm atmosphere. The menu is abundant with Vietnamese and European cuisine. The first feeling that is a very clean restaurant and welcoming staff. We will come back here again.

“A great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

We returned to this restaurant in August 2013 nearly 10 times ! (lunch and dinner).
Dishes remain very good, perhaps they are not the best Vietnamese meals but some dishes are really good.
You can try the fried pancakes, the Vietnamese ravioli, the rosted shrimps in coconut milk, the delicious green papaya salad, the famous cha ca La Vong which is prepared by a restaurant staff or why not fresh springrolls, cooked whole fish in banana leaves.
For me, this is one the best Vietnamese restaurant in Hanoi. Very good quality/price.
Very quiet place to stay.

Great place in the Old Quarter. We had a lunch after stopping as part of a food tasting tour earlier in our stay in Hanoi.

Check it out.
