Superb vegan restaurant - Edit

One of my all time favourite restaurants, and I'm not even vegan. The food is super tasty, the portions are big and all that at very affordable prices.
Just look for the alley next to the old temple on Doi Can street and you'll find it.

Authentic Vietnamese Vegan Food - Edit

I eat there from time to time and I can say it's one of the best vegan/vegetarian restaurants in the city which serves Vietnamese cuisine. They have huge varity of dishes but my favorite it's stir-fried noodles, braised eggplants in the pot, tofu lemongrass and pineapple fried rice. They have very big space, and it's owner has been running restaurant business for a long time, that's why she knows how to make the food by traditional vietnamese recipes but vegan.

Pros: Amazing food, Good Location

Cons: Sometimes slow, Not always friendly stuff

Nice service! - Edit

The women who worked there were very nice, much better than other hoa sens we have visited. It's a little hard to find and the vibe inside is kind of weird. We were there at about 630 on Friday and it was very quiet. I got sour soup and my boyfriend had noodles, both portions were plentiful and tasty. The rolls and dumplings were kind of odd though. The food is a bit over priced in my opinion but that's often the case in Hanoi. Overall not bad though. Would visit again if it wasn't a trek out there.

Pros: Good portions , Quiet , Nice service

Cons: Long trek , Slightly overpriced

Great - Edit

Went here for 100.000 buffet with about 30 dishes which were various, eye-catching and so delicious! Will be back soon

Edited 17.02.27
Went again last week, this place was renamed as Vô Ưu. Same chefs and staff with really really good food ^^ No buffet this time so we tried several dishes from soup in coconut and spring rolls etc, all were good.

Com Chay Hoa Sen - Edit

This was my third visit, twice were takeaways. We waited over 45 mins for five dishes. This happened last visit so gave it another chance, bit disappointed, there was only two other diners.
Two dishes were unsatisfactory.
Hope they improve.
I revisited this Com Chay this week and WOW! what a change. New chef, the dishes I ordered were well presented and the vegetables were Al Dente, spring rolls were nicely flavoured. Rice with Lotus Seeds, were well presented in lotus leaves was great. I was pleased it had lifted its act. They have opened a new place in town near Hoan Kiem lake. Yet to try.

Cool and family-like - Edit

Nice restaurant, cooled in summer, close to a pagoda (like usually here) in a quiet street. The set rice / cơm suất is 30.000 VND, not so big as some other places around Hanoi though. They have a nice little grocery store where you can buy delicious green-bean deserts (my favourite). The staff is really friendly and family-like.
