After a regrettably lackluster bun cha experience at a random sit down place elsewhere in the city, my wife found Bun Cha Ta online and we opted to try it given the positive reviews. We immediately knew we'd be eating there again before we departed Hanoi. The quality and portions are amazing, and the staff is exceedingly friendly. The restaurant has plenty of seating and the food comes out fast and fresh. Order the full course bun cha for the best experience, and top it off with one of their egg coffees for a delicious finisher.

We went for the set with spring rolls topped with a cup of egg coffee..

Enjoyed every bite of it!!

It's a must have whenever I am in Hanoi.

The staffs are really friendly too and if you are a first timer, they will advise you on the proper way of enjoying it.

We ate at Bun Cha Ta at the recommendation of our hotel, just around the corner. Located at one end of "Coffee Street", Bun Cha Ta is a wonderful and very easy first-day option. The food is delicious and service is prompt. Owner-proprietor Katy is warm and welcoming, and will walk you through how to eat bun cha (traditional Hanoi specialty) if you've never had it before. Highly recommended!

This place is good for travellers because the waitresses could speak English fluently, and she's willing to give you a guide on how to eat Bun Cha.

They have good variety of dishes including veterarian and nice setting. The food came out fast and they price is OK.

We came back after our almost 12 hours day trip to Ninh Binh tired and hungry and wanted to find somewhere nearby to eat. We came to Bun Cha Ta at our hotel staff's recommendation. It was our first time eating Hanoi's bun cha. The very friendly & helpful young lady named Katy showed us the right way to eat the dish with all the fresh vegetable & herbs & the spring rolls. She even enlightened us on trivials like how the spring roll got it's name! The bun cha with the grilled pork was very delicious and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
