Someone else has added photos depicting a restaurant with tables and chairs, wall art, waiters... It’s a far cry from the actual place which is styled more like any other local joint for locals! No clue where the photos came from. Expect to squat on...More

Be sure to order the sticky rice with onion and fat! That's their specialty! Make sure you order it with something else like chicken! It's a local and inexpensive meal!

Very delicious chicken sticky rice in old quarters area. They have different meat toppings of which I like lap xuong the most. Not a glamorous looking restaurant but food is out of the world.

I'd been excited to visit Xoi Yen since before I arrived in Hanoi, as rice topped with various different meats always seemed right up my street. When I walked in, I was immediately given an English menu. I heard about a mixed option being on...More

Not quite. Without the meat accompaniment, you just get rice and egg. It’s not the point of trying Xoi Yen.
