    On the street: Food stalls

    by shavy Updated Mar 4, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There's no doubt visitors to Hanoi notice the constant presence of edible stuff on their strolls around the Old Quarter and further afield

    Experience the Vietnamese style eating in " the street food" joined the locals not only fun is cheaper too. One can reach out and touch food up and down the length of any Hanoi street.

    But where there is food there are people. It can be crowded in some places but there's always a place for you or walk to the next one
    The evening time is most overcrowded, the local eats their meal the same hour as the tourist eat

    Quan An Ngon restaurant: A temple of Vietnamese cuisine

    by Cindyviet Written Dec 23, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Top-of-mind name for Vietnamese food, Quan An Ngon started from a smart idea to bring all traditional Vietnamese dishes together and display them in traditional style of vendors and local eateries on the street. Décor stays consistent with the traditional theme, with red floor, dark wood, high ceiling, and banana plant plots spotting the garden. Very popular with locals, expat residents and tourists, the place is packed at lunch and dinner time.
    The name sets up high expectations right away: Ngon means “ delicious” Quan An Ngon had the concept of taking the best of simple street and market dishes and setting them in a splendid courtyard villa. Bringing the countryside market into a more refined and hygienic atmosphere was a stroke of genius.
    The restaurant covers not only a two-story French villa but a garden filled with yin-yang-tiled stones looming bamboo and banana trees, and colorful hanging lanterns creating a calm and atmospheric setting. The rural brown costumes of waiters and waitresses add a nostalgic country charm to the space.
    Quan An Ngon is that rare restaurant, popular with both tourists and locals, a place where customers from all walks of life are treated the same. More than simply atmosphere or service, however, it is the food that keeps all of us coming back. Quan An Ngon has truly become a landmark temple of Vietnamese cuisine where local and overseas cuisine lovers pay hompage

    The Bab: The best restaurant in Hanoi!!

    by thebab Written Jul 5, 2012

    When I visited Hanoi with some friends of mine, we went to a Korean restaurant which I heard that was famous for great, delicious food. I've tried Korean BBQ quite many times in my life, but I never knew I that I would meet the best Korean BBQ in Hanoi, Vietnam.
    The restaurant- The Bab- was new (or renovated recently) in the area with clean and modern exterior and interior. It was 7-story building- the whole building was the restaurant!

    We had Korean sweet pork BBQ and it comes with a lot of side dishes, which is free!!
    It was $10 for one person but you can share if you are the least eater. In fact, the quantity was good enough even for a big eater like me. And, the quality was so great!
    Every food we had was delicious, and the meat was so tender. Among the free side dishes, seafood pancake and Jab-chae(Korean fried(?) noodle with vegitable) were amazing- you might evne charge for them in other restaurants.

    The waitress were friendly- some of them could speak and understand English. We had no problem with ordering or asking.

    In conclusion, it was such a nice experience with my friends having a great food.
    I'd definately liked to go there again if I have a chance to visit Hanoi again!

    Favorite Dish: Pork BBQ and Side dishes.

    Gecko's café.: Super friendly and a good price.

    by pfsmalo Written Apr 20, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are I believe 6 "Gecko" restos in Hanoi, this was the only one we tried but was very pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the food on offer. Before going in we negociated the price of the beer down to 2 for 1 and both ordered a Thai Masaman curry. Very good and enough of it. Offered a small glass of gutrot to finish. Service was very good and friendly with Van Morrison tootling along as background music.

    Paid around 250.000 VND for the two of us. (9€) inc the beer.

    Ly Club: Amazing meal at a top-end restaurant

    by SurfaceTravel Written Aug 20, 2011

    The concierge at the Sofitel Metropole Hotel recommended Lý Club to us for dinner. I would guess it's one of the, if not the top restaurants in Hanoi, at least for Vietnamese or Vietnamese fusion food. There is a club on the ground floor and the restaurant is up on the first floor. The décor is modern Vietnamese and it is filled with maybe 40 or 50 lanterns of all different shapes and sizes. There is a musician playing some kind of local wood xylophone. It's a unique place.

    The service is excellent and the food is spectacular.

    Pizza 112: Pizza!

    by dancinbudgie Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This pizza place was right opposite our hotel, so when Bradley was too tired to go out, we could always convince him as, number 1, he loves pizza, and number 2, he could see the hotel from the retaurant window so he knew we weren't too far away from his toys. The best part was, that after eating pizza he always gets a second wind, so we could do more sightseeing after all!
    The menu includes soups, pasta's, salads, sandwiches and burgers...and great ice-cream sundae's. The pizza's were good, although some of the toppings made me wonder if maybe I don't get out often enough! Is it normal to have potato on pizza?
    You can eat in or have it delivered.

    Wild Lotus: Very Trendy

    by dancinbudgie Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place has 3 floors, and the night we were there they were all nearly full. It seems to be very popular, with a lot of people lingering over drinks in the lounging area's. It is a beautiful old building and fabulously decorated. At the entry, you cross a water feature via stepping stones before ascending the stairs. We ate up on the third floor which had a raised ceiling with exposed beams and beautiful hanging lanterns.
    The staff were not as attentive as you might expect in such a nice place (or maybe we had just been too spoilt by the staff at the Elegance 3 where we were staying), we were left pretty much to ourselves after having our meals put in front of us, and found it hard to catch some-ones eye when we wanted something. Having said that, when Brad spilled his drink all over the pristine table cloth, we were moved with minimal fuss to a new table and the mess quickly and quietly cleared away.
    The food was great and the wine list excellent.

    Favorite Dish: I don't know if it qualifies as a favourite, as I only ate here once, but the best dish on the night was a grilled chicken with lemongrass...absolutely beautiful!

  • Green Mango Restaurant & Hotel: Great new restaurant

    by christiegirl Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I had dinner at the Green Mango Restaurant & Hotel in early November 2007, just a couple of weeks after its opening.

    I really think that it is a great find and would encourage anyone who is planning to be in Hanoi for a couple of days to consider having a meal there.

    They also have about 7 rooms that they rent out (located on the upper levels of the restaurant).

    What I couldn't get over was the spectacular decor --- there's a bar, dining room areas and an open air lounge that is really quite incredible.

    The owners were very hospitable and it's the kind of place that you just want to see do well.

    I found it on my last evening in Hanoi and if I had known sooner, I would have gone there a couple of times.

    Their website is pretty limited right now but at least it will provide you with directions:
    www.greenmango-hanoi.com

    Enjoy!

    Favorite Dish: The dessert that I had is "fondant au chocolat" ... I think that it would be likened to a souffle. Chocolate cake on the outside with this hot chocolate syrup in the middle. As I was eating it, all I could think was that I was not ever going to be able to enjoy this again unless I came back to Hanoi. It was so good.

  • Pumpkin Cafe: Vietnamese food

    by chala Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The menu here was written only in Vietnamese, so we sat for a while and asked the waitresses to show us the stuff they carried by on the menu list. We talked with hands and feet, because nobody spoke a foreign language.
    The food was good, fresh and very nicely presented. There was a huge table of young people feasting on an enormous Hotpot with loads of seafood. looked pretty good.

    Clean and nicely decorated.

    Favorite Dish: do not remember exactly, we had seafood and pigeon and fried rice, draught beer, oh, we had wonderful soup as a strarter

    Thy Ta Cafe

    by victorwkf Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Thuy Ta Cafe is a cosy cafe located at the north-west bank of the famous Hoan Kiem Lake (along Le Thai To Road). It serves both Vietnamese and Western food, and there is also a bar here. It is best to visit during evening time, and sit at the tables outside just next to Hoan Kiem Lake. This place is popular with foreigners and tourists.

    Papa Joes Coffee: Coffee & Juice

    by Etoile2B Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Papa Joes is a great little coffee shop and juice bar in the middle of the Old District. It’s conveniently located near Hoan Kiem Lake. They have a little bar on the street level or a seating area on the first floor. All the juices are fresh squeezed and made to order and prices are decent. The staff is friendly and the drinks are presented well. They also have snacks and sandwiches available, but are a bit on the expensive side comparitively. A great stop on a hot day!

    Favorite Dish: My personal favorite was the fresh-squeezed lemon juice and Marc was partial to the mango juice.

    Jaspas: Aussie Rules

    by JonnyVN Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This used to be known as Jaccs and can fit in the restaurant and nightlife tips. Owned by the famous Al Frescos, this is one of the expat hang outs, big long bar with great pool table. Food is what I would call upmarket Aussie style, not the cheapest in town but good value. The manager is Jim, a maori guy, who is a world class chef (ex press club) so you can expect the best.

    There is also one in Saigon on Dong Khoi
