Are They Still Open?

I used to visit this delicious restaurant years ago when I first moved to Hanoi, but haven’t been able to find it for a few years now. Contacted their Facebook to no avail.

Hopefully I’m just missing it when I drive by, because the food is fantastic and it’d be a shame to have lost

Pros: Delicious, Cheap, Friendly

Delicious Food. Gritty Space.

I affectionately called this place "Grandma's", since there was an amazing grandma who served the food during the many times I came here while in Ha Noi.

I loved the Spicy Noodle Soup / Bun Rieu Chay the most, along with the fried spring rolls.

Please note that this place is a hole-in-the-wall mom & pop shop: this isn't the place to enjoy the ambiance, because the interior is dilapidated. Still, the people running this place are wonderfully kind and the food is delicious. I see it as more of a place to eat and then be on your way right after.

Not sure this exists anymore?

Couldn't find this resturant and where it is supposed to be the building is a construction site

The best vegan food in Hanoi!

Small but inexpensive menu with some of the best food I’ve had in Hanoi. Only downfall is I’ve been in a few occasions and lots of dishes were not available. However the food is so good I can’t fault it!

My favourite restaurant in Hanoi!

What a lovely local gem! Awesome home style cooking of Vietnamese dishes, well priced and so flavoursome. I loved the noodle soup with banana, and the banh xeo is so crispy and delicious! A must try if you're in Hanoi! Everything on their menu is so good.

They also do a buffet - I think for 45k with red/white rice.

Pros: everything tastes awesome!!, well priced

Cons: buffet isn't served hot as they cook food in the m

Awesome homemade food!

Just go there and point to what you want to eat on the wall. Everything there is delicious. Make sure you get a Avocado or Mango Smoothie. For locals and foreigners that live there.

Pros: easy to reach

This tiny Buddhist place is absolutely amazing. Come around noon and the food will be freshly cooked and delicious. Super cheap and the owner is very friendly! Loved it :)

Homely food

It's a small set up with home made food. Food was nice. However, the place can be depressing to eat at. I luckily found good company, so was chatting with her. It's not a place i would happily take someone along with. Just a place I'll go if I'm really hungry and want to eat a lot at reasonable prices.

Homey & Delicious!

If you are looking for super flavorful, authentic food then come here! The owners are from south Vietnam, so the food is a lot more flavorful than the other places I've tried up here in Hanoi. The owners are super nice and don't charge extra for extra rice or vegetables. I had the bun rieu and it was probably the best I've ever had, including bun rieu I've had before I turned vegan! The owner treats everyone like family

Small menu but all classics - you can't go wrong with that - and tasteful.
Well served and for a very reasonable price.
The two ladys that served me were super nice.

Great Vegan Vietnamese

This place has lots of great vegan options, including a delicious fresh noodle salad with cut spring rolls on top with a peanut filling. Unlike other vegan food I've had in Hanoi, this is authentic and well priced.

Cons: no air con, just fans.

A true vegan restaurant in Hanoi has been hard to find without getting into touristic decores and prices. Originally made for the locals but veganism seems slow catching in these parts as a result sees a fair share of Asian and further abroad visitors. LOVE the pillow pocket things stuffed with all kinds of goodness

Pros: Staff are super friendly and nice, Authentic feels, Never crowded

Cons: Closes around 10:30pm

Bo De Quan Bodhi Vegetarian

12/01 Visited this place for lunch. Had a cơm đĩa (mixed platter) 40,000d. A platter is a plate with rice in the middle and around are some greens, piece of fried tofu, some mixed veggies, sweet potato all was warm. I ordered two fried spring rolls 10,000d each. Is vegan but not my style.

Pros: appears vegan, staff friendly

Cons: very ordinary buffet, decor very drabby

so good!

I ate here a lot when I was in Hanoi. there are two kinds of soup and both are delicious, as well as the spring rolls! the owner and her daughter are very kind, and they also have coffee which seems to be pretty rare at vegetarian restaurants!

Pros: great value, really tasty, great service

Really tasty!

I love this place & eat here almost everyday. The owners began cooking veg in the pagoda & then decided to open up a restaurant. This is a great local place with a casual feeling & friendly vibe.

The rice dish is always a great choice. It comes with several sides that change daily. There's also different soup (the banana is delish!), which changes daily as well.

The menu is a bit limited but all items are a hit - you really can't go wrong here. The friendly, relaxed atmosphere and delicious food keeps me coming back again and again. Also, the price is around 50K for most items ($2!).

Do yourself a favor & check out this place!

Pros: everything is awesome!

Cons: limited menu
