I was taken here by a local after I expressed a desire to try something special that was local to Hanoi. The Bun Cha Ha Noi and Crab Nem were fabulous.

We visited this restaurant because we heard they serve very special rolls (and I love spring rolls!). We went there one night, for dinner, and found the place quite empty. The place is clean and many waiters are there in case you need anything. It has a big parking for motorbikes and it is very quiet (because it's in periphery... More

nice bun cha with crab spring rolls. Try the old and sweet tofu 豆花。 Crab spring roll is huge and signboard says it's the most expensive - reason being huge and use the biggest red crab.

Love this place. Well organized, staff is good food excellent!. Although a very brief menu... This place had probably the best "nem" at a restaurant that I ever had.,the bun cha (noodles and grilled meat with sweet sauce) was really good too. Price is reasonable. Remember the nem here is very big. So don't be surprised that they charge 70,000... More

We had lunch here on our tour. Most of us were disappointed - meat already on tables, soup was at best lukewarm, drinks ordering and delivering was shambolic. Apparently the pork belly and bacon were both very good.

During my recent work trip to Hanoi, my local colleagues took me to Quan Nem. This place specializes in crab spring rolls and they didn't disappoint. We sat up on the second floor of the restaurant. The place is not fancy but the food quality was superb. The sign on the wall indicated that the food may take a while... More

A well kept secret for tourists but very popular for locals. The menu is very limited but people mainly go there just for the few dishes on offer. The Haiphong style crab spring rolls (Nem Cua) are spectacular and their Bun Cha is also excellent. Even the sweet tofu with ginger syrup is fabulous. Credit cards not accepted.

Good place to eat banh chau and crab meat spring roll. Unfortunately the sweet and cold tofu sold out and we couldn't try it.

This restaurant is known for their spring rolls. You wont be disappointed that is for sure. This is very much a restaurant used by the locals and offers an insight in to real Vietnamese eating. It does get very busy during lunch time, but has seating over 3 levels. Service is quick and food fresh. if you're nearby by make... More
