Restaurants in Hanoi

Most restaurants in Hanoi serve Vietnamese food, including staples such as Pho Ga (chicken noodle soup) and Pho Ba (beef noodle soup). For those traveling on a budget, there are numerous Hanoi restaurants that offer delicious eats for cheap, as well as a bustling street vendor scene that serves exotic local delicacies, including cobra foodstuffs, dog meat and boiled duck eggs. Be warned, however: Hygiene varies dramatically from stall to stall.

For those looking for a more upscale dining experience, there are numerous high-end Hanoi restaurants, including KOTO. Considered to be one of the best restaurants in Hanoi, KOTO is a not-for-profit establishment that provides career training to disadvantaged teens and kids. The restaurant’s excellent mission is matched by its excellent food, which includes traditional Vietnamese dishes, as well as more international fare, such as a delicious take on fish and chips. Another standout choice: Ly Club, a Vietnamese restaurant housed in a former French colonial mansion that serves dishes made from local ingredients, such as sautéed clams with lemongrass and salmon baked in a banana leaf.
