The road to revelry runs right to this popular pub in the city! Though it's the official headquarters of Hanoi's Minsk Motorcycle Club, you don't have to be a biker to drop by. Highway 4 will set you right on course with its Honey-Egg Wine and Vietnamese Rice Wine. Sample the traditional fare from the a la carte menu, or then if you are with a large group, opt for the buffet.
Went there twice because it was close to our hotel (25, Bat Su). The first time was ok, although there was no baby chair and we had to take turns to carry our baby girl. The second time was horrible!
We ordered 3 dishes. One of it wasSauerkraut or Bamboo Shoots sauteed with Catfish Stomach, and specify that we want the "Bamboo Shoots". However, first time, it was served without the bamboo shoots, and second time, without the catfish stomach! When we enquire again, the waiter initially said "sorry, finished". But when we called for the manager (who was all the time in the restaurant but had no interest to come over until we called out for him) the waiter insisted that we only ordered 'bamboo shoots'! The manager just ordered for a change without much apology.
Then when the bill comes, suddenly an extra dish was on the bill! Luckily my husband already alerted me to check the bill, or else I might have missed it cause it Vietnamese language.
To be frank, the food was pretty good. But if you had to reject the same dish twice and argue to get the right one, your appetite woud have been affected.
The problem was not just the waiter, but the manager was not proactive enough to ensure that the customers are satisfied.
I had only one night lay over in Hanoi and had to decide between choice of what they recommended by the touris place or the yahoo recommendation, I went with Yahoo (Big Yahoo supporter!!), and the decision was right.
Excellent place. Love the home style provincial liquor. I couldn't drink too much, but had two shots of Apricots and Passion Fruit, reminded me of the sweet wine my Dad made with grape. I couldn muscle myself to try to gheko and etc. alchol, just getting too old. But if I am with bunch of guys, probably would have muster the courage to do it.
The food was outstanding. I tried the catfish thing everyone recommende, very tasty. Pork in banana leaf was great.
I walk away wishing I have more time to try all the food they offered.
3 dishes, 2 shots of alchol, 1 corn water, 1 rice, 15 USD. Go if you are in town!
Sifting through the menu, there are a few surprises for a Westerners palate - however all the food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. We also tried some herbal rice wine which had a kick and set us up for a fun evening! Efficient service too, we will definitely be going back...
Foods are good with different kinds of grill meat. There are some tribal and traditional kinds of alcohol, and you can stay late (not usual in Hanoi).
Not a "romantic" place but for a group of friends. Upstairs places are nicer.
Foods, atmosphere, decor and services carry Vietnamese traditional manner. Apricot wine is so fantastic & tasty. Foods are quickly served. Waiters' attitudes are open-minded. All of those stuffs make tourists and fellow dinner wanna come back again.
Has very nice surroundings. Sitting on the floor makes for a very interesting, cultural experience. The food was very good...though one dish did leave some people with expressions of disgust on their faces...
While here you must try some creepy crawlies. They have their own page of the menu so its hard to miss. We had crickets and scorpions, both of which were suprisingly tasty (there scorpion still has its shell on though so its a bit crunchy).
Also try the wide variety of wines on display near the entrance. It basically a selection rice wine that has had various animals floating in it. Some are very strong and if you don't feel up to it, you can order a selection of shots that have had fruits in instead of animals.
All in all though, a very nice place to eat.
Just come and sit down on your knees, then you'll feel like sitting in a small society, with people around (not too many) and even a temple inside the house. There are some ethnic customs on the wall, and the lights...
I like corn water, a cool kind of drink there. cool, not sweety when you drink, but very sweety when you swallow.... cool you down in a hot summer night !
Ahh food is great also. They have many kinds of wines that I bet you have never heard about :) so what, just try and enjoy yourself...
