The Pho Bien restaurants are where I go to eat delicious seafood in Ha Noi :)) the location in the Hoan Kiem District sits upstairs of the FiviMart grocery store, and has several private rooms for special events... the main dining area is vast and can accommodate lots of folks as well. Aquariums hold fresh fish & shellfish, and the... More

Got taken through the first section of the restaurant but had to ask to keep moving as the smell wasn't good. Sat at the back on our own. Had to continually call waiters over despite their being an abundance of them! Food was good though. Asked for the bill 4 times with 4 different waiters that were standing around and... More

We spend our lunch and dinner few times in Pho Bien Trang Thi for some reasons not becaused it's special. Few years ago it's really great, but with the quickly born and raised of many great seafood restaurants in the town as now, this place should be renovated the layout/ appearance. Like sitting dinner in the tile roof area, and... More

We had dinner in this restaurant. It was nice restaurant, spacious and cozy if it is not many visitors. The food was great and fresh.

I guess we arrived "late" for lunch (around 2). A staff of youngsters were delegated to stay back and did a great job. The toilets were being cleaned - an inconvenient advantage. The food was terrific - spring rolls and steamed fish the highlights.

I've visited 2 times, as was very close to my hotel. Servis is good but, not many people speak English. Food was very tasty, only my last visit I choosed fish, which was not very good.

The Pho Bien is nowhere near the main drag. If I remember correctly it is in a cul-de-sac not on a main road. It took us a while to find the place. Although the price is reasonable the food is very mediocre nothing special. Although the restaurant wasn't busy the service was very slow. It doesn't seems the staff speaks... More

We stepped into this restaurant because my partner had read about it and we passed by on our way to dinner at another place. Since we wanted seafood anyway we went in. This is a typical Vietnamese place, loud and somewhat bright but service was good and the seafood fresh and absolutely delicious!!!! And what is most important: prices are... More

Went there because it was recommended on hotel list and the nearest place from Hoa Lo prison. Service was slow which is acceptable given the language challenge. Clams was disappointing and we had to cancel the fish after a large snapper was offered, which was well excessive for a family lunch. Only redeeming dish was spicy squid. I Guess Hanoi... More
