Pretty good but overpriced - Edit

Everything is vegan, which is great because you don't have to ask. But the flavor is pretty lacking for me. I went twice and the first time I got pho- very bland compared to other pho I've had at food stalls. The second time was a little better but still seriously lacking considering the price. Still much cheaper than America, but it's really pricy for Hanoi. The staff speaks some English though and are extremely friendly!

ok.. - Edit

Food was mediocre, portion sizes small and expensive compared to amount and quality.
They only had one english menu where alot of the meals where unreadable due to wear and tear.

Pros: ok food

Cons: expensive, nothing special, small portions

Pretty Yummo - Edit

This little chain is bloody good! We’ve ordered the pho, the Hanoi rolls and a strange tofu mushroom pancake thing. All very, very yummy! It took a little to come out, but the server was new and apologised a bunch so I forgive him! It’s got a chill vibe and I plan on eating there again tonight, so.... must be good, hey!

Good food but not all - Edit

I went many times and the quality of food is variable. Some dishes are quite good and some you really need to avoid. If you're unlucky to have ordered the ones to avoid you will never come back for sure. The snail noodle soup however is awesome. They also have a vegetable dish that's quite good (I don't remember the name).
They need to upgrade their music, often they play the same song over and over (and every day that same song) so if you don't bring your own music and earphones it can drive you nuts.
Another thing I didn't like was the strong chemical smell of their toilet, every time the door opens (and many costumers leave the door open after they leave the toilet) this pungent smell spreads into the restaurant.
Staff is friendly though and sometimes even brings a dessert for free.

Pros: Some very nice dishes, Friendly staff

Cons: Some unsatisfying dishes, Rather expensive, Terrible music and chemical odours from toilet

amazing food - Edit

Me and my boyfriend went to this restaurant about 4 times while being in Hanoi, it was so good we just couldn’t resist. Some of the best food we have had so far, I’m vegan but he’s not and he really enjoyed it so good for everyone! Try the fried oyster mushrooms, and the fresh spring rolls, delish!

Bland food - Edit

Food bland and based on readymade stuff. Not great value. Don't try the lasagne.

Pros: Both Vietnamese and Western options

Cons: Not great value, bland taste

Overall Good - Edit

Overall the food was great but a bit overpriced in my opinion. I had the vegan sausages, which were really yummy and actually tasted like the real thing, in a good way ;) The Pho was not my favourite, it was too simple and plain for me, I had imagined something more spectacular, but the Caramen was delicious! Just a bit small. Overall good, and if you are in hanoi I would visit the place.

Clean and many creative options - Edit

Popped into Minh Chay for their creme caramel, it was tasty enough but not that flavoursome. The rest of their menu looked interesting, lots of mock meat takes on local dishes. Good service and clean restaurant.

Pros: Clean, Local and western dishes

Cons: Tad pricey

inedible - Edit

You can't go wrong with fresh spring rolls in Viet-Nam, right? Wrong. What they brought me was inedible. Tasted like dry tuna pâté filling. Dreadful. Apologised but I still had to pay despite not eating more than a mouthful. Friendly waiter. Added to that they did not have the first three drinks I ordered.

Pros: friendly waiter

Cons: food

average at best - Edit

Firstly the place didn't have any of the dishes I wanted to order (I mainly went for the pho) and the dish I settled on was bland and tasteless. The portion sizes were pretty pathetic too, especially for the price!

Pros: friendly staff, easy to locate

Cons: small portions, bland and tasteless, over priced

Pricey, and not completely vegan - Edit

I've tried their food couple of times, and I can say It's good vegan Vietnamese food, but nothing special. Vegan Pho is definitely overrated. And unfortunately, some of my friends, who allergic to milk, got allergy by drinking their "vegan milk" coffee.

Pros: Nice location, Food is ok

Cons: Pricey, Not completely vegan

Not vegan... lie about food contents. - Edit

DO NOT EAT HERE IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO MILK OR WANT TO EAT SOMETHING TRUELY VEGAN. We ate here yesterday. They claim to be fully vegan and so we ordered the vegan pizza with vegan cheese. I have a milk allergy and got a severe reaction after eating this, had tot go to the hospital. We asked the staff if there was any milk in it, and after getting the answer "it's vegan cheese" about five times, they finally admitted that there was "a little bit of dairy" in the pizza.

Cons: Not vegan , Lie about food contents, Not even that tasty

Delicious vegan food! - Edit

Really great fresh food. The staff are very attentive and very welcoming. The place is cute, and nice and cool on a warm day/night.
Lots of great options, but really enjoyed the noodle dishes. Definitely worth it if you can get there.

Great place - Edit

Located a minute from my hotel, I was fortunate to not have to run around rainy Hanoi for good vegan food, I went twice in three days. Don't hesitate to go.

comfy relaxing place out of the hectic streets. - Edit

We had such a wonderful time at this place that we went back again instead of finding a new place to eat. If we were not leaving Hanoi tomorrow i would go back again. Great food, delicious Pho and wonderful staff. Best place we ate in Hanoi in our 5 days here.

Pros: excellent staff, great food and well priced.

Cons: would have been nice to have a banh my on the menu

Better options available around town - Edit

This place has a nice decor and nice staff. The menu contains the a mix of traditional Vietnamese dishes: rice/vermicelli noodles w/salad, noodle soups, clay pot vegetable dishes and fruity salads; a number of poorly executed western dishes like small pizza, bland soups, dry burgers and tiny sandwiches. There are a number of fruit smoothies, teas and coffees that you can enjoy in a pretty quiet and slightly classy setting.

The kicker is, none of the food is very good. It's either greasy, bland, undersized or a combination of the three. If you pay the same price at other nearby veg restaurants, you'll be sent to gastronomic heaven... or spend less and still get superior food.

I hate to be a negative Nancy, but the hygiene could easily be improved as well.

Pros: Nice staff, good interior, convenient for many tourists

Cons: uninspiring food, over priced, low hygiene

veganvirtues 11 Jun 2017 - I can't believe the rubbish you have written. greasy, bland undersized or combo. Name one nearby veg restaurant that is better.
I am very critical of bad service and not good vegan food. I have eaten at both Minh Chays and found them both very good. The price is more than the loving hut style but u get msg free food. Quality is better sourced. Loving hut u get what u pay for. Like to know who u have as a place that's serves better food.

Delicious and good price - Edit

Vietnameese food is so good, the western could be better. I am not a big fan off the cheese, it needs salt.
Good cheap prices, lovely atmosphere, staff and music.
My favorite dish is the "snail" pho noodles :)
Defenetly worth a visit!
