Enjoyed the food immensely. Tasty fish fillets cooked in front of you served with noodles. The waiters will add the herbs to the fish in the pan. Be brave.. add the fermented shrimp sauce to the noodles! It enhances the flavour of the dish.

Fresh fish to fry quickly served. The fish was well marinated, but I think the amount was too little. There was a large amount of herbs.

Good value for money, we had about 20 people and they served within 10 minutes. Don't expect 4-5 star restaurant, it's a typical Vietnamese 'fried fish' restaurant. Ideally for quick and light lunch.

We were on a tour but broke away for dinner with some Americans we know in Hanoi, they took us here. Wonderful! The fish is tasty and fresh and full of greens that you sauté with the fish right at your table- no menu, fun fun! Tasty too! And cheap!

So just one dish on offer, the speciality of the house. Fish, greens, herbs, peanut, noodles cooked at the table.... If you like fish, greens, herbs, peanuts and noodles, you'll like it. If you don't you won't... The place is rammed with locals which I regard as an excellent sign! $20 for 3 with a beer...

If you are planning on trying Cha Ca (tasty fried cubes of white fish - no bones or anything), and I recommend you do, skip the old quarter and make sure you visit this restaurant. 1. Jump in a taxi. It will cost you less than 100k from the old quarter 2. Enter restaurant. You will be met with smiles... More

When we arrived, we sat down and ordered a couple of Hanoi beers, and a few minutes later the staff brought a frying pan full of yellowish cubes of something and lit the burner in the middle of our table; they then brought a large bowl of greens and herbs; we were a bit confused as we hadn't even looked...

Good food, nice taste Nice place, nice staff Suitable price for the service. I am Hanoian and usually choose here to visit. You, foreigners, should be here and try to experience "Mắm Tôm". That could be great, haha. Enjoy,

Thank Khanh T
