“Good food and a must visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

Loved the varieties of local food here. You can also try the western food. The only thing is, very limited spaces available. So, be there earlier to avoid disappointment.

“Superb! A special place not to be missed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

I live locally and frequent this wonderful restaurant on a regular basis. As it is a family-run business, it is a true home away from home and the staff are always attentive and friendly. Due to its popularity, the restaurant is often very busy. However in my experience, this has never adversely affected the quality of service which is always excellent. Meals are served promptly and efficiently, and the value for money is truly fantastic. The food is delicious, and the wide variety available on the thoughtfully inspired menu caters for every taste. We were fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to participate in a cooking class here last month. It was both an education and a delight to see how locally sourced fresh produce was carefully and skillfully used to create the authentic dishes on offer in the restaurant. Above all, Stefan and his wife Thuy consistently go out of their way to ensure that customers are satisfied and comfortable. I cannot rate this little place highly enough. One of my favourite spots in Hanoi!

“Great food reasonably priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

We saw the Masterchef sign so we tried it. The food is good but the service is a little sporadic, in the evening you have to be there before 19:00 or after 21:00 or you have to wait, but it's worth it and very reasonably priced.

“Devine find.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

We decided on this restaurant for dinner on our first night in Hanoi based on trip advisor reviews. The restaurant from street view isn't anything special but boy was the food good! My girlfriend gave her prawn and fish vermicelli bowl a 10/10 and was her favourite meal on our trip so far. My simple grilled chicken and sticky rice was a fairly small serve but was of a very high quality. As we were finishing our meals the restaurant started to get quite busy so we offered to move to make room for others, however the man (who appeared to be the owner/manager) insisted we stay where we were to enjoy our meal and did not rush us. Two main meals and a large bottle of beer cost us about $6AUD, which although is not as cheap as street food, exceeded the quality of all street food vendors and most restaurants we've visited in Vietnam. We will definitely be back during our stay in Hanoi.
