“incredibly good food”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

this is no doubt the best vegetarian restaurant i've ever been (since i'm a vegetarian and travelled a lot i've tried many...). the interior is almost a bit too chic for my backpacker taste, but if you want to have a nice dinner in a lovely traditional asian atmosphere or just can't resist the amazing menu with a big variety of all kinds of vegetarian food, you're right here. don't get confused, the so called pork, chicken, fish, squid and even snails - all "fake meat". sounds strange, but really - it is delicious! you can try all kind of asian dishes the vegetarian way. the prices are very reasonable (around 80'000dong) and the portions are huge for asian standards.

even if your a not a vegetarian try it. its amazing...

“The best vegetarian restaurant”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

Very good and creative food. I really enjoyed each meal in this place. You have a lot of choice. The presentation and the taste are amazing. Even if you are not vegetarian you should try just once to discover something new.

After three days of deep-fried-everything in Halong Bay, I needed some fresh and creative veggie options, without straying too far from Vietnamese cusine.

I chose Thein Phat on a whim, and it did not disappoint. Entirely vegetarian (and without eggs as per the waitress), the largest set menu plus drink came to about 200,000d. The food was refreshing,
not greasy. Mock meat was excellent - didn't seem to try too hard to make it taste like meat, but rather just make it taste good! The upstairs is tranquil, and a great escape. It's a new restaurant, and was a bit dull in ambiance (bit too polished and with the same looping instrumental track), but id definitely recommend it to any veggie in Hanoi.

“New Vegetarian Restaurant in Old Quarter”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Despite what the first review says, this restaurant is 100% vegetarian. The reviewer may have been confused by some of the menu item names, which include words like Chicken, Beef, Pork, but rest assured they are all mock meats.
Only open for three months (as of Feb 2014), they have a second location at 91 Ly Thuong Kiet, tel. 0439410584.
The staff were incredibly attentive, the restaurant was immaculate, and the food was delicious. The kitchen is on the second floor, and from outside the restaurant you can see up into the kitchen, which is a unique design feature I have not seen elsewhere.
The presentation of the food, as you will see from my photos, was excellent, the food delicious.
My wife got the 150K Dong set menu and the selection was just right. A nice sampling of several of their dishes.
We also got the passionfruit "chicken", and the sauce was heavenly. The mock chicken isn't my favourite mock chicken in the world, but was still delicious. We also had the eggplant with peanuts which was the best thing I have eaten in a long long time. Get it!
Enjoy your visit.

“Innovative food”
Reviewed February 8, 2014 via mobile

There is some very good innovative food here. We especially enjoyed the grilled aubergine with peanuts and the tofu stuffed with lotus seeds. It is not solely vegetarian but they have some great options for veggies. It is smart inside and the staff are friendly. It is a bit pricey compared to other places (mains around 85,000) but worth it for something different.
