Great little place to eat, simple, and cheap. Staff lovely and friendly, menu a bit limited but thats not a derogatory point, no hidden costs, and good portion sizes.

Food was good , unfortunately I thought the vegetable dish I ordered was a side dish and when it arrive it looked more like a main course with rice so I was unable to finish my food as I had two massive plates and I believe it was not well received by the staff. Would suggest to specify clearly what... More

We were here to eat dinner, we had Fresh Vegetarian Spring Rolls and Pho Soup. The service is really friendly, the food excellent and (by western standards) quite cheap. If you want an authentic experience, this might not be the right thing for you, as it is only visited by foreigners. Would totally come again!

This place is always busy and most rightly so! The food is of very high quality, the service very friendly and a very good meal for two (including beer) need not cost more than USD 15. We went here four times now, chose different things from the menu and everything tasted great. The aubergine dishes are especially good (as you... More

I was recommended this place as I heard about building your own fresh spring rolls, however I ordered the vegetable spring rolls, fillings were bland and the rice paper was quite frankly indelible. My friend agreed and also ordered a soup which was average.

We had supper here with friends and really enjoyed it. The food was fantastic at a very reasonable price. The duck in Hanoi sauce was amazing! When you order the fresh spring rolls you roll your own which makes it fun. The cocktails were great as well. The restaurant itself needs a good clean and a paint job to spruce... More

Not sure where to go on your first night? Go here. Firstly, there's a good range of food for every pallette, from Vietnamese food that's westerner friendly to margarita pizza for the fussy eater. There's also a good range of tasty vegetarian food. We've been a few times, but we always have the fresh spring rolls or the Hanoi spring... More

Over the course of our 3 night stay in Hanoi we kept going back to this restaurant for dinner and lunch as 1) it was a 100m walk down the road from our hotel, 2) food was A++ with a great menu for vegetarians, and 3) service and value was excellent. Highly recommend this on your dining choices for Hanoi's... More
