As at many specialty restaurants in Hanoi, they ONLY do ONE dish, and they do it well. No menus, just sauteed fish in turmeric, vermicelli noodles and herbs. Wait staff will confirm the number of diners, and then the food is delivered. Finish cooking at...More

NUMBER ONE GRILLED FISH at 14 Cha Ca Hanoi was the worst experience that i have ever experienced at any restaurant . We ordered the "Grilled Fish" which turned about to be fried, not grilled, greasy meat. The restaurant owners cheated us by charging high...More

Once 'the' place for Cha Ca, but I won't be visiting here again. Too many good Cha Ca restaurants with better food, quality, access and most of all, service.

We visited this restaurant as it was the first to start Cha Ca, but boy were we disappointed. I went there with my boyfriend and wanted a light snack. The boss tried to push us to get the set for 2 which would come up...More

Supposed to be a complete gem, we had not looked on here, rather read guidebooks, and I can confirm it is as poor as others have said. It was more expensive than I have paid for any meal in Vietnam, small portion, uninspiring and yes...More

Bad and rude service. Tasteless mulch of unidentifiable fish parts cooked by man picking nose and served with old limp bunch of herbs. Run now, don’t walk away - run.

We went here since it was the first to develop Cha Ca. The servers were nasty, ignored us, never brought us our drinks or napkins. The waiter dropped a card on the table that said (we serve on dish—170VD). There are better places for Cha...More

Good taste - still consistent in terms of taste, cucumin flavoured fish Bad taste - overpriced - 170k VND for one person, no service, too little fish (if I really want to filled my dinner stomach I probably spend 1M VND)! P.S. I went to...More

It doesn’t taste good like it used to. Also the service is too bad. I sure will never come back here.

詳しい人におすすめしないよ、と言われても元祖ということで入ってみましたが、ガッカリを超える腹立たしい対応でした。 うちは魚のグリルを170kドンで出すだけだというカードを投げつけられ、ブンは切らずにどんと出される。ピーナッツを出してこない。ハーブは自分で入れろとまるで看守に命令されるように顎と箸で指示される。火の調整など一切なく野菜は焦げる。その上、後から来たグループ用の取り皿を僕のテーブルで仕分け始める。 たべてる最中に、コンロを下げる。という劣悪な対応にガンと文句を言って出てきた! 文句をいう地元民も外国人はいないのであろうか? ぺこぺこお辞儀をし始めたがこのふざけた対応に断固抗議した。 チャーカータンロンに行くべき! 魚の量も不満なく、ブンはチョキチョキ切ってくれ、一皿目はよそってくれるので、わかりやすい。 Go Cha Ca Than Long, where better food and services are provided at competitive price. This joint did nearly insulting service by directing me what to do by pointing their chin with no words. No bun cutting prior...More

No!! Everyone please be aware that the restaurant across the road is a scam. We were recommended to go to this restaurant and ended up at the fake one in error. They have very cleverly slightly changed their name to "Cha Ca... More
