As a long time vegan and residing in Ha Noi for some years. I eat out often at my regular haunts, Nang Tam, 166 Kim Ma, 192 Quan Thanh and 68 Pham Huy Thong Bo De Tam. Occasionally we go and seek out the other Loving Huts or Au Lac places in Ha Noi and Vietnam when we travel.I will say firstly when I dine out the place should firstly have good clean surroundings which should reflect what I'm getting on my plate.
Last night we decided to try 277 Ngo Van Chuong it took us about 10 mins driving around the lake trying to find this pokey hole in the wall. As a vegan I look after my health and this place looks terrible and reminds me of street food with their short plastic chairs and tables (I wouldn't be seen dead eating at and breathing in the passing carbon monoxide) and no way would I even enter a food serving place in this condition, and unfortunately a number of Loving Huts mirror this place. I ended up driving to Nang Tam and enjoyed the food they always serve here and it was packed out, 277 was hardly packing them in 20 minutes earlier. Personally avoid, if you regard your temple (body).
Cons: the decor and atmosphere , location. no clear signage, rang about four times for directionsm
