Little Hanoi 2 has no relation with Little Hanoi 1.
This is a lovely open-plan cafe with a mouthwatering selection of baguettes, pastas and salads. Their French breakfast is a steal at VND30,000.
It opens daily from 07:30 to 23:00 and deliveries from 09:00 to 21:30.
Favorite Dish: Everything is nice here.
Don't let the name fool you: Little Hanoi is one of the big names in the local dining scene, attracting a good crowd of locals and tourists. What used to be a "little" eatery is now a full-fledged restaurant, complete with a decent wine list!
So good was the food that I ate here twice. The ubiquitous do-it-yourself spring roll did not disappoint - the crispy catfish was, yes, crispy and delicious, but the magic of the dish in the rice wafers. They were hard and firm, initially, but when it comes into contact with the dipping sauce, it just melts, creating delicate texture in your palate.
I've also tried their grilled pork with citron and sweet and sour dipping sauce. The pork was grilled perfectly, with a very palpable hint of lemon grass, masking the meat's greasy smell. Love it. Perfect with Singapore-brewed Tiger beer.
BFS - my just-created abbreviation for one of Vietnam's tastiest specialties: Banana Flower Salad! Little Hanoi has it on its menu, thus we went there. BFS is really good there, but the servings are quite small. The other food was also tasty, but similarly small. Furthermore, the service is not the best, but it's worth checking out this place for BFS.
PS: Their bamboo deco should win a prize!
Favorite Dish: BFS!!!! Yummy!
This great value restaurant in the Old Town which has a better known cafe offshoot close to Hoan Kiem Lake offers a very good introduction to Vietnamese cuisine. However, beware that there is another restaurant very close by purporting to be Little Hanoi (you need to continue past this fake to the real deal). The restaurant is popular with Backpackers/Travellers with young children. Service is friendly but can be a little slow.
Favorite Dish: The soup and all things pork.
Unlike the menus of a lot of Vietnamese resraurants in the US, northern Vietnamese food seems more like Chinese food to me. Little Hanoi is very good -- Springs rolls, veggie curry, sesame shrimp and chicken with ginger. All for just less than $10 including drinks. But was it really Vietnamese or Chinese food? Hmmm.
Located in an old building needing renovations, Little Hanoi serves good Local food. Pho cost an average of 35,000 VND. Softdrinks and other juices from 15,000VND. Toilet is in need of constant cleaning and sanitizing which is its disappointment.
I really liked the interior of this cafe/restaurant which is bamboo and wood. Also the lacquer paintings on the walls. It's quite a nice place to sit and eat.
Quite a wide range of light meals and also a range of salads, soups, filled baguettes and also quiches. Regarding the filled baguettes, you can eat in or take these away and best of all you can actually phone the restaurant and they will deliver the baguette to your hotel free of charge! Different range of quiches and baguettes both priced at 48,000 VND.
Service was really good, on occasion i would go there to get something to take away and always be invited in to sit and relax while my order was made up.
Favorite Dish: The hot apple pie and ice cream is especially good. I also liked the smoked beef baguette with lettuce, tomato, cucumber.
Actually me and my mate really liked this place coz it was really near our hotel (Camelia 4) so it was really convenient when we were beat and didnt know where to eat. The food was good of course - Since I'm from Singapore, while many of the dishes were already very asian, it was still very tastily local and a couple were uniquely delicious.
Note: They've done so well, i suspect, that they actually opened another outlet just down the same alley! One can only imagine the tasty food there. =P
Favorite Dish: I can't remember the name, but it was one of the vegetable dishes with a really difficult name (at least for me). We selected the grilled version and it was yummy! =) The beers there were also cheap (as with the rest of hanoi).
Cosy. As we were hunting for Little Hanoi for dinner, we were confused which Little Hanoi should we go in. There were a couple of restaurants by the same name along the same alley. Finally we went into this one. Food was delicious and service was good. We were happy to have entered the correct (?) place.
Favorite Dish: All the dishes that we have ordered were good. Can't really remember the name of the dishes though. There was one which was in praprika sauce and another dish - egg plant
Ambience - Quaint and neat.. nice place to sit down for a beer and a book
Try the special spring rolls - fried and it's very tasty!! I like it so much that I ordered two plates!! 20,000VND per plate for 10 small spring rolls.
They serve other hot food as well.. such as noodles / salads / vegetables / rice etc...
Coffee- nothing to shout about. The most diluted vietnamese coffee I've ever tried.
Favorite Dish: SPECIAL SPRING ROLLS!! A bit oily but it is a Must try!!
