Cha Ca La Vong

Cha Ca La Vong in Hanoi’s old quarter is rumoured to be one of Vietnam’s oldest restaurants, first opening its doors over 100 years ago. Little has changed since then, particularly the menu which only offers grilled or fried fish. Grumpy wait staff members serve up these legendary specialities in this busy and sometimes overcrowded restaurant where Cha Ca is grilled right on your table with turmeric and dill, served with peanuts and Vietnamese noodles. The restaurant is often crowded so prepare yourself to stand in a queue.

• Location: 14 Chả Cá, Hoan Kiem
• Tel: +844 825 3929

La Terrasse du Metropole

La Terrasse du Metropole has been something of a legend in Hanoi since it first opened its doors in 1911. It is a chic Parisian-style café serving light snacks and perfectly brewed coffees to patrons who want to sit back and watch the world go by. A saxophonist entertains most evenings.

Wild Lotus

Located just south of Hoan Kiem District, Wild Lotus exudes elegance. Lotus ponds, a reflecting pool, sky-high ceilings, murals and a grotto dedicated to Buddha set a plush ambience that is complete with gourmet Vietnamese cooking. The restaurant is very detail-orientated and features lotus flowers on the tables and expensive Vietnamese art on the walls and the dishes here are equally attentive to detail. Made for couples or friends to share, the menu options feature delicate spices and sauces and include grilled fish and vegetable salads.

Hanoi Social Club

If you are looking for a cool, bohemian hangout with amazing western brunch dishes, Hanoi Social Club is the place to visit in Hanoi. The coffee and smoothies are excellent as well, and the second-floor chillout room feels more like a friend’s apartment than a cafe. The soundtrack is varied and modern, there’s a library of books and free Wi-Fi. Come around lunchtime and try the poached egg and avocado – it’s certainly as good as anything you might get in a cool cafe on the shores of Sydney Harbour. Quite hard to find down a side street a few minutes west of St. Joseph Cathedral.

Opening Hours: 08:00 – 23:00
Location: 6 Hoi Vu (just off Quan Su Street)
Tel: +84 4 3938 2117 

Xuan Xuan Restaurant

Xuan Xuan Restaurant might not win any award for style, but if you want to eat like a local this Vietnamese BBQ is just about the best in town. Dinner was served in 5 mins. Portion was plentiful and meat was fresh. Sit down on the ankle-high stools and order a selection of meats (from pork, beef and goat udders) and vegetables. Everything is brought on a large platter and you barbeque your own dinner over a small gas burning stove. It’s a fun experience, eating elbow to elbow with a diverse range of customers and the taste is truly delicious. Located in the heart of the Old Quarter, look for the crowds of happy diners spilling out onto the pavement.
Location: 47 Ma May Street, Old Quarter
