Description: Bun bo Nam Bo is marinating the beef, then comes making 'nuoc cham' and the pickled vegetables (shredded carrot and papaya). The pickled vegies is crispy, a little sour and a little sweet, which even makes me eat two bowls of the noodle at once. Remember to pickle the carrot (and papaya first, before marinating the beef) since it takes at least 1 hour to get a good flavor on the carrot.

I tried everything on the menu except the dumpling cake. The beef noodle salad and pork rolls are the best and a must-try. So yummy!

The sour meatballs taste the same as what they sound like - sour meatballs. The herbal chicken soup had very tough vegetables that I could not chew on and thus did not finish. Chicken was tender and soup was aromatic but it’s not the best I ever had.

Really worth it for the price and the big portions you get though.

The menu card is simple and straightforward, around 7 dishes. We went for the first and most popular option which has is the name of the restaurant.
It was really good, you could spice it up yourself - mild and not strong spices per default - but it tasted delicious.

This is an average food joint near the old quarter that must be living on reputation.
All the other meals we had in Hanoi were better than the one we had here

I would highly recommend this popular spot! Do not expect fine dining conditions, this is a local favourite as well as a tourist favourite but DO expect delicious food! The beef noodle salad is so tasty and so cheap, the staff are friendly but do speak only limited English (well you are in the middle of Hanoi, Vietnam!)

Again, definitely recommend to anyone wishing to try some tasty local food!

The menu is limited to great street food. Quick service. Definitely recommend visiting while you are in Hanoi.
