They kindly fitted us in in a shared table and the gentlemen sat there recommended the Beef Pho which excellent. My partner enjoyed pork kebabs which were plentiful. Building is based on a traditional house and very tranquil, under £10 with beer... More

I emailed Blue Butterfly the day before the session (Feb 17th) and was told it's US$55 per person. I personally found the price kind of expensive, but everything else was great. Firstly I took Mai Linh taxi to get off near Hoan Kiem and the taxi couldn't go into the neighborhood of this restaurant. Then I got helped by staff... More

They have this pan-grilled fish (snapper I think) on the set menu and it was lovely. The strawberry milkshake was also very good. The tour we went on took us to this place for lunch and it was so enjoyable for me and my mom.

I had a morning session with Chef Huang. He picked me up from my hotel at 9am and we then spent the next four hours shopping for ingredients and cooking a three course meal. Wandering through the market, and seeing the hidden small local roadside stalls was a great experience. Chef Huang was very informative with the local fruit and... More

This was recommended to us by another couple who had eaten here previously. It didn't disappoint. The menu is varied, reasonably priced and the result was delicious. The food was fresh and full of flavour. The staff were attentive and welcoming. A gem of a restaurant!

This place served a fantastic set meal for lunch, both good quality and plenty of it. Service was good and the cooking clashes looked really interesting.

We have been here twice and the food is amazing! The staff are great and so attentive. Highly recommend the Vietnamese pancake, the fresh noodle spring rolls and the Vietnamese traditional grilled fish! One of the best places we have eaten in the whole of Vietnam!

The Blue Butterfly is located inside the heart of Hanoi Old Quarter, occupying a 300-year-old two-storey wooden house that promises a highly atmospheric and enjoyable environment. Its antique architecture should be the most attractive feature of this restaurant with all the furniture made of wood, traditional antiquities and Hanoi's scenes hanging along the wall...
