Never come back again. This is first time ever I have to put 1 star for a restaurant. Food was aright but the crews, people work here was terrible. They are so impolite when we ask for something. I highly not recommend this.

I made note to try all the local dishes. This was one of them, and we came based on reviews. Staff were fantastic. Fun. Our food came out and we cooked it. Turmeric Catfish was so good. Wine was a reasonable price.

The grilled fish was perfect and fell apart in your mouth. The waiters show you how to cook the food and then assemble a bowl for you, and then you can continue frying the dill and spring onions and adding it to your vermicelli noodles...More

Hanoian saying: "You must try this dish once in life before leaving this world" Absolutely beautiful fish dish. Simple but delicious. Right up the top of my favourite meals EVER, fighting with Amok in Cambodia for #1

This restaurant serves a single dish, but one that is very fresh and tasty. Lively atmosphere, good fun sharing the food from the same pan. Definitely recommend this place if you’re in the area.

They had salads and noodle dishes, so I'm sure vegetarian diners can be accommodated.
