'Nhi' (prounounced like a knee in English) was such a great and accommodating waitress for us! We were wandering around tired a found this (a bit pricy) place, but the highlight was definitely friendly service! Our waitress even showed us some places on a city map, and when I forgot my phone charger there and went to ask for it... More

We chose a vegetarian menu mainly because I choose not to eat meat. Hung also added pork bbq moon Cha for my friend. All the dishes were wonderful and a wonderful learning... More

I took the chicken with cashew nuts. It didn't taste special, especially the chicken itself was rather tasteless. The problem was that a few hours later I became sick. I didn't eat anything else, so have to conclude that something was wrong with the food. I guess it was the soy sauce, but not sure. My husband took the fried... More

I booked this lesson through my hotel at a cost of $45. I thought initially that it was a bit expensive, however, it was well worth the money. My class had 9 other students in it. The classroom was on one of the upper floors of the restaurant and had plenty of character with lots of lanterns etc. The lesson... More

We had a great meal here. The presentation of the food is lovely and the food itself is very tasty . Try the lemon grass and chilli chicken as well as the yummy vegetable spring rolls with fresh herbs . The restaurant decor is unique as it has large book cases filled with books from around the world.

We came here on our final evening in Hanoi for dinner after reading other positive reviews. The staff here were so friendly and welcoming and our food was really tasty and reasonably priced, cheaper than many of the other restaurants in Hanoi. The grilled chicken with coconut milk was delicious and highly recommended. This restaurant can be hard to find... More

The first appearance is more like a bookshop. You have to just step in to know the true enthusiasm of making the customers wanted and comfortable. Leo the manager made us feel so much at home. The hospitality and the food served was of top class. Leo gave us a two minute session of how to enjoy the Vietnamese pancake.... More
