Bit Tet is definitely worth seeking out. It's 51 Hang Buom, at the end of a very long corridor, so keep an eye out for it.

The food is a cross between French bistro and Vietnamese street food and is so good - an array of steak, chicken, prawns and crab dishes with a variety of sauces including gravy and spicy curry. The chips are heavenly and help soak up the sauce, as does the hunks of baguette that you can get on the side. The pate is excellent too. We went twice and thoroughly enjoyed the food each time, and it's all very easy on the wallet.

The restaurant is more like a cafe, quite basic but comfortable and pleasant. The staff are very smiley and friendly, they don't speak much English but when you sit down they give you a list of the dishes available with the menu where you can mark down which dishes you want and the amount. A great idea as it prevents any misunderstandings or communication issues.

It's open 5-9pm daily, so if you are going out of your way to visit the restaurant, do keep these opening hours in mind.

Great family run establishment that is difficult of find and worth the journey. Simple fare that fit the pocket book of travellers and locals alike. Tomato & cucumber salad, Steak and fried potatoes, roasted pigeon and a range other items like prawns round out the menu. It can be racous at times but that is part of the character of the place. Go for the steak! And make sure you have plenty of banh mi to mop up the gravy!

Only open for dinner from 1700-2100 (go at 2000 on Fri/Sat as you should not have to wait.)

i have been to this restaurant about 3 years ago to get to it you go down a narrow passage and thru the kitchen,there are many small rooms and one larger.
don't expect 5 star service and the food is basic but very good.Steak frits,salads,pate and french bread.and i remember some very good prawns.
Great atmosphere,and very crowded.We booked.i brought my own excellent and very cheap Vietnamese red wine,but they do serve drinks.
I cannot believe nobody has reviewed this place on trip adviser.
you can easily miss the entrance,so take your time to locate 51,pho hang buom street in the old quarter.
i am going back to Hanoi this week ,and will defiantly be eating at this place.Enjoy.
