If you are a serious sticky rice lover like myself, then this is definitely a place to check out. Fast food style with non-English speaking staff, but menu is easy enough to read so not a problem at all. Yellow sticky rice and steamed sticky...More

Visited as it was in the lonely planet guide - it’s a small roadside cafe. We had the gelatinous rice mixed combo and it was amazing! Not for the faint hearted though as it’s a typical Vietnamese eating place but great food! It’s also super...More

It’s a busy and crowded spot. Selections ok. Chewy rice, “cha” is good. There are better spots to hit.

We miss this sticky rice so much when we left Ha Noi. Came here almost everyday for the right vietnamese breakfast. Beside the famous Pho, Bun Cha Obama, banh canh Ut Coi..., don't miss this yummy one!

I looked forward to visiting this famous Vietnam food, but having no chance to give it a try. When standing there viewing the menu, the Vietnamese boss stood behind me started to yell and me. I couldn’t understand Vietnamese but apparently he didn’t welcome us....More

The sticky rice come with various topping for selection. Unlike the chinese style sticky rice which is very gummy; Xoi xeo is soft and less sticky and it is delicious when mixed with the topping and fried shallot.
