Hanoi serves up traditional authentic northern Vietnamese cuisine. The restaurant has a spa like feel with carved wood decor and seating. In the summer they open a nice back yard patio. It only seats about 20 people so it can fill up fast. It wasn't quite warm when I went with my mom, cousin and aunt so we all sat inside while enjoying our dinner.
We had to get some Pho as we were in a Vietnamese restaurant. We went with the PHO GA. The soup came with chicken, basil and lemon leaf. The broth was light and full of flavour. I was glad that the bean sprouts came on the side so that they can stay crispy and fresh.
LR ordered the BO XAO RAU CAI. The garlic beef was served with stir-fried bok choy and steamed rice. She liked it but said it was a little too garlicky. The portion was quite large and as a result she had enough to take for lunch the next day.
My mom and I shared the THE GA NUONG XA SUA DUA and it was delicious. Stir-fried chicken cooked with a lemongrass and coconut milk marinade served over rice noodles and fresh crispy lettuce. The hot chicken and the cool lettuce added a nice flavour profile. My only wish is that it would have been a little more saucy.
Would we go back? yes
