One of my favorite Japanese restaurants in Hanoi. Good quality of food and nice atmosphere. You should book your table in advance in case you have some requirements. Normally each time I eat here it costs around 600k vnd/ pax.

I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to Japanese food so I don't have a huge frame of reference but I thought Ren was absolutely superb. We ordered a lot of different dishes; a sushi platter, some wagyu beef, pickled vegetables, assorted pork... Everything was delicious,...More

Large servings, popular with local expats who know their value restaurants. If you like Japanese food, this is a good spot for lunch if concerned about costs. I was told evening more expensive.
