If you are not a white skin person, please do not even thing of visiting this place. The staff here is racist to next level. We visited the restaurant at 9pm and we were told that the restaurant is closed, which itself was surprising. But...right after 10 mins when a white skin couple entered they were given a place served food too. So I would request the shore traveller community to please boycott this place. This happened on Jan 08th, 2020. One can check the cctv for proofMore

The food is delicious! I went there a number of times while in Hanoi. Never disappointed. Reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere. Good service. Central location in the Old Quarter. The pho made with tofu was my favorite. And Veggie spring rolls. I highly recommend this place...even if you're not vegan/vegetarian.More

Best pho I've had in Vietnam! So fragrant and tasty. It's such a treat to have pho that I can eat. Great find

I agree with previous reviewers. The food is good but the service could be better. The staff are not very friendly and the prices are a little high for what you get.

Went for lunch. Got a couple of dishes. Decent portion sizes and tasty. Service a little slow, but not terrible. Definitely go if you are in need of a decent vegan meal.

Great food but they discriminate against parties comprised entirely of East and Southeast Asians. Don't expect to be seated for dinner if your party doesn't include any other ethnicities. We went here for lunch and loved the food so we decided to come back for...dinner. At 8:30 the host, who wasn't there at our late lunch, told us it was closed. While I stood near the doorway looking for another restaurant they seated the European couple who came in right after us. I thought it was a misunderstanding so I approached the waitress who served us at lunch and she seated us immediately. The table across from us heard everything and actually told the European couple it was closed before the host walked up and seated them. Then halfway through dinner another party of 6, all East Asian, were also told the restaurant was closed. All the tables up front with us talked about how messed up that was and one diner pointed out the makeup of the other tables in the restaurant. At least one Westerner or South Asian in every party. Another told us the restaurant's stated mission was to inspire the local community to eat vegan. That's obviously a lie. Will never come back if I'm in Hanoi again.More

Sometimes being a veggie is annoying because you feel like you're missing out on most of the local cuisines which are meat-based. So it's great to pick up a menu and know you don't have to scrutinize the ingredients and you can literally order *anything*....I had the banh mi with pate which was good but could have been a bit more generous with the filling. I can't remember the name of the other dish but essentially you get squares of rice paper which you dampen with water until they're malleable and fill and roll with an assortment of herbs, fruit and veg and a spicy sauce. The waiter showed me how to do it and it. A number of dishes on the dessert menu are no longer available which was a bit disappointing. Nonetheless it was tasty and reasonably priced and I will be going back to sample other parts of the menu.More

We're sorry, no alcoholic drinks in Minh Chay. But we have a lot more healthy drinks for you. How about trying a new thing today, vegan beer in Minh Chay? We'd loved to have you in our restaurant !
