This cosy and imitate restaurant tucked in a lane has a distinctive style. There is a good choice of dishes with specials changed daily. We shared a place of delicious salt and chilli chicken wings and each had a large dish of Vietnamese soup, one of tofu another of seafood. We drank Jasmine Tea. Good value winter warming food.

I love Vietnamese food and go out of my way to find it when I'm travelling. I found this when I Googled "Vietnamese near me". Such a find. According to my daughter, a student at GSA, this is one of the trendy places in Glasgow. The food is authentic and delicious. Wonderful tastes and combinations. I had the pork spring... More

The staff were very pleasant, helpful and made suggestions re quantities and combinations for our group. Only problem was finding room on the table for everything! Food is brought to table when ready which is better than all at the same time but still pushed for space. Food was all very tasty and not too spicy.

Having just travelled to Hanoi Vietnam we were pleasantly surprised to find that the food here was just as good here as in Vietnam. Excellent friendly service and well priced. Will definitely be returning often.

The staff here couldn't have been friendlier. It was our first Vietnamese experience and we were given lots of advice and didn't feel rushed at all. The spiced gin cocktail is a must, as was the shrimp special of the day. A great place to visit and so pleased we'd done a bit of homework and pre-booked or we would... More

This place is down a little lane and the location perfectly suits a Vietnamese restaurant. From the outside it looks inviting and inside we loved the ambience and the somewhat squashed together tables, which are very reminiscent of Vietnam. We have visited Vietnam many times so were looking forward to our meal. The staff were friendly, helpful and keen to... More

Staff were accommodating and very friendly. The food was excellent, the menu diverse and the atmosphere on a busy Saturday evening was lovely. The decor inside is unique. A brilliant evening all round, will definitely be back in the near future!

This amazing restaurant is snuck down a little alley opposite Hillhead Subway. We’ve wanted to come here for years. It is a small, cosy restaurant that packs a flavoursome punch. The two of us shared three starters, one main course and a side all washed down with Vietnamese lager each. Very, very tasty and will definitely not wait as long... More

We are Vietnamese and have tried almost every single Vietnamese restaurants in the UK. Hanoi Bike Shop impressed us on our first visit, largely from the interior decoration, which looks very traditional Vietnamese. Unfortunately, the food came at an unwanted surprise. Salad was served with the baguette, which is a very unusual ingredient for Vietnamese-style baguette. Further, it was recommended... More
