They were very kind to us even though we showed up very late to have dinner! Traditional cuisine. Everything we tried was delicious. Definately worth going!

Having done about 25 cooking courses we we're quite happy with this one. We spied their course offering on their chalkboard out the front of their restaurant while eating a few days ago at another establishment. The price, $USD 29 per person for 3 courses was significantly cheaper than other courses we'd investigated. After an initial conversation with one of... More

The Staff and the atmosphere were great. However the portions were small and the " special foods" didn't quite make it.

Not a busy place when we came. Great atmosphere, really beautiful inside. We were disappointed when our food arrived. My smokehead fish looked like it was 3oz with nothing else and soaked in oil. My husbands dish was small and greasy. Price is reasonable, but when portion is that small I guess it has to be. Wouldn't come back again.

So far this is the best food I have had in Hanoi! Super kind staff and great service. The caramelized snakehead fish is a must - yum! We had a couple of different starters, which was all really good (:

Lovely food, peaceful restaurant. Great service. If you are new to Vietnamese food then this is the place to go, the waitress or manager will very patiently talk you through the menu explaining the dishes, the food is cooked fresh and can be adjusted to meet your needs. They even explain how to eat the food, as several dishes require... More

The place is very cosy and sweet, stuff is very friendly. The local food is really great for a moderate price, the only thing that bothered me was a little cold food. I hope it was a unlucky example but I would still recommend it.
