As at many specialty restaurants in Hanoi, they ONLY do ONE dish, and they do it well. No menus, just sauteed fish in turmeric, vermicelli noodles and herbs. Wait staff will confirm the number of diners, and then the food is delivered. Finish cooking at...More

Once 'the' place for Cha Ca, but I won't be visiting here again. Too many good Cha Ca restaurants with better food, quality, access and most of all, service.

Bad and rude service. Tasteless mulch of unidentifiable fish parts cooked by man picking nose and served with old limp bunch of herbs. Run now, don’t walk away - run.

We went here since it was the first to develop Cha Ca. The servers were nasty, ignored us, never brought us our drinks or napkins. The waiter dropped a card on the table that said (we serve on dish—170VD). There are better places for Cha...More

No!! Everyone please be aware that the restaurant across the road is a scam. We were recommended to go to this restaurant and ended up at the fake one in error. They have very cleverly slightly changed their name to "Cha Ca... More
