I ate here 20 years and had always thought about this unique take on a steak. When I came back to Hanoi and was so happy to find that they are still alive and kicking! The bit tet gravy is amazing and the fried corn is really good too. Down a funky alley so be on the look out for... More

We went there as a party of Vietnamese friends. Up a tiny alley off hang buom in the old quarter, it is easily missed even when you are standing in front of it. Hanoi's first attempt at a Vietnamese French restaurant, now in its second generation of family ownership and known only to native hanoians. Bit Tet or beef steak... More

Totally not worth the money, beef steak is very tough, staff sometimes rude, maybe because too crowded. Pate is acceptable.

The fare is quite fine, about 200.000VND (10$) per set, with about 200gr of beef and fried potatoes, little salad and tasty sauce. Will be comeback soon!

Down a dark (nor quite desert highway) alleyway, look for number 51, take a deep breath and enter, especially if you see a lit (guiding) star at the end of the path and you will find Bit Tet. Open from 5-9pm we were the only non Vietnamese in the joint. Menu small, choose what you want then place your order... More

A pleasant little surprise in a busy area of the Old Quarter. Walk along Hang Buom, look for #51, walk about 75 steps down a long narrow alley, follow the well lit sign. I was seated immediately. Restaurant was clean, crowded and seemed pretty efficient. Nearly all Vietnamese. Two floors. I heard about the beefsteak with onion gravy and French... More

We had looked forward to trying Bit Tet Ong Loi. Finally we found this elusive place and wandered down the long dark corridor, the restaurant was closed. There was a sign, but in Vietnamese, so we are not sure if Bit Tet Ong Long is closed for good or for renovation. The small outside sign on the street was also... More

We went to this place 4 years ago and it was an amazing experience (as per the same reasons as what others have written on here). We went back. What a shame. We were given a menu with extortionate prices (VND 110k for the bittet, and VND 200k for prawns). Also we were not given bread or salad as per... More

Old fashioned Hanoi food! Western stuff. Bourgoisie, left over from the colonial times. This was the idea when I went to “Beefsteak Grandfather Loi”. The restaurant is in the centre of Hanoi and it took a lot of motorbike navigating through small and busy one-way-streets just to get to Hang Buom street. And there, at number 51, the restaurant is... More

The restaurant looks just like a residential house, but with loads of tables and chairs. Vietnamese-style beef steak with chips, and roasted quail is among the most favorites. You may have to wait since this place is always crowded at dinner time.
