Restaurant was easy to find as it is just at a bend. Shop name is interesting. The meal is expensive and the quality of the food was just average. Lighting of the restaurant was poor and makes it rather dark when dining in an enclosed room.

We had a quick stop for juice and drinks while trying to escape from the traffic madness. The cafe itself was not very busy but the traffic was still clearly audible outside! Drinks came fairly swiftly, loos were OK.

A small restaurant in busy "Old Hanoi". We started with fried spring rolls, followed by a tasty chicken soup. We shared dishes of book Chou, fried egg plant, park and chicken. Everything was well prepared and yummy.

This is a diamond in old town. Best fresh spring rolls ever and don't miss out the fried spring rolls traditional style. Friendly staff and speaks good English. Had lunch twice for a weekend visit. Highly recommended.

Hang Gai Street is the place to eat in Hanoi there are places spilling out onto the street and the atmosphere is fantastic. We ate there every night while in Hanoi but a fav was Little Hanoi.

The very first night we arrived in Hanoi we wanted to feel and taste the town. In the Old Quarter we found this smart restaurant, very clean and the Vietnamese food was excellent, as we expected. I will not forget the lady that graciously drove us through our very first Hanoi food experience. Her name is Phuong Ly. She was... More

I went to little hanoi as part of my Vespa Tour. Many times lunch places that are parts of tours are big on quantity but not on quality. This place had both. My favorite dish was an eggplant dish followed closely by the fried spring rolls and cat fish.
