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 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.

在越南,同一條街上,可以吃得很dau mau,也可以吃得很high class. 我在這裡只叫了一碟fresh roll - it was the most beautifully decorated Vietnamese rolls that I have had - 加上餐廳充滿情調,牆上掛滿高水準的照片,讓我吃得滋味之餘,又大飽眼福!

Great atmosphere near the lake , Don't get it mixed up with Little Hanoi...very different. We came here after The Water Puppet Show. So relaxing and a wonderful break from the surrounding chaos. Nice Blues music playing and a view of the outside world. The duck with dumplings are amazing as is the wine.

Great location to sit and watch the busy road. Lovely fresh springs rolls. Ask for the mango salad without beef though.
