Fish is ok, but over priced. Fried on your table, but not much more than a gimmick. Free beer is promised, but they deny it when you pay. Dishonest, noisy, unfriendly. There are so many good restsurants in Hanoi. This one is a trap.

This unique restaurant offers a special Vietnamese fish dish with noodles and greens. About $10.00 Canadian per person ($8 USD). We (2couples ) went upstairs and sat down. No one came to talk to for maybe 5 minutes. Just when we were wondering about talking...More
