Very easy to find, this small and simple restaurant really got in our top 5 list of what to eat in Hanoi. Just point out what you want from the menu and enjoy. Cheap and really tasty.

We decided to come here because of reviews on Trip Advisor. I didn't think it was anything too special. We all ordered the traditional Bun Bo Nam Bo but there are a few other things on the menu as well.

This restaurant was really good. It was the first stop on a food tour I went on in Hanoi. They specialize in only a few dishes and its marvelous. I would highly recommend going here.

Recommended here by our hotel and we couldn't be happier. Just gesture how many servings of the bun bo you want and what drink you'd like and you'll be promptly served. Flavour is outstanding and you can taste the freshness in every bite.

Just went here for dinner and ordered the Nam bo. It was so delicious! The food here is amazing, fast, cheap and fresh! Definitely pour on a little soy, vinegar, chilli and squeeze in some kumquat to get the blend of salty, sweet, sour, tangy and spicy all at the same time. Would definitely eat here again in a heartbeat!

I had the Pho xao chay (stir fried pho noodle with tofu and vegetables) and my man had pho chay (vegetarian pho noodle soup). Both we're delicious and fast to come out. My portion was huge! I only made it through half, so great choice if you have a big appetite. We will definitely be back :)

Bun bo Nam Bo is marinating the beef, then comes making 'nuoc cham' and the pickled vegetables (shredded carrot and papaya). The pickled vegies is crispy, a little sour and a little sweet, which even makes me eat two bowls of the noodle at once. Remember to pickle the carrot (and papaya first, before marinating the beef) since it takes at least 1 hour to get a good flavor on the carrot.
