Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was a bit nervous going here having read some negative reviews, but we loved it. We went to the restaurant in the old colonial building, which had quite a lot of people inside; and not the totally empty one of the same name up the...street, with a modern glass front. The service was friendly and quick. I loved that you could adjust your food according to how spicy you wanted, even if this did mean I ended up with my first mouthfuls extremely spicy. There were plenty of noodles so it was easy to adjust my meal. The fish was delicious and plentiful.More

We were recommended this restaurant by our driver. They specialise in Hanoi's signature dish as per the name of the restaurant. Great service with friendly waiters who make it dead easy to order and out it all together to eat. Definitely recommend.

Nice entrance with bamboo rows and a venerable building looks like it was from the colonial era. However inside, since this place is rather famous, was pretty crowded and noisy, even though it was a weekday lunch. The food was good but I don't think...it was noticeably better than other well known "cha ca" restaurants. But the service left much to be desired. The waiters were rushed, rather terse talking and sometimes didn't bother to answer questions about the food at all. After they served the fish, they just left and didn't return unless you called out to them (compared to another "cha ca" restaurant also reviewed by Michelin, where walking by waiters would check on your pan, add oil and stir to make sure the fish doesn't burn)More

The food was okay but the service was terrible. It’s a set menu. My partner and I paid for the food and while my partner used the bathroom, they moved me to accommodate a party of 7 while there was room elsewhere in the restaurant???...(It was not that busy while we were there) Apparently, waiting a couple of minutes for a table is not within the realm of possibility. Would not go back due to the service.More

Wonderful option for dinner! There is only one option of meals, and it was grilled fish, cooked at your table, served with greens and noodles. Delish! Although it's a Michelin restaurant, the meal was only 195,000 dong, equivalent to about $8 US dollars.

We did not have a nice experience. Food was just Ok. Very bland and subtle flavor. Portions were tiny. Service was just awful: we had an early dinner around 6:pm. Most of the staff spent their time heads down in their cell phones. Saw our...server picking his nose and the proceeded to come over and stir our dish while coughing all over it. Gross. Staff were not smiling or friendly. Not a hello or goodbye or thank you. The place is overhyped and overpriced. Poor value and very poor service. Would not recommend to family or friends.More

First time we tried Cha Ca and we loved it. This fish dish is delicious. Would have gone to Cha Ca Thang Long again if we'd had more time. This place specialises in Cha Ca and it shows. If you don't like fish, this dish...might help you change your mind.More

One of the best restaurants I visited in my trip in Vietnam. It is specialised in Cha Ca La Vong, a dish based on fried fish, spring onions, dill and other herbs, served with some side dishes. The service was quite good and quick, with...the waiters being quite fluent in English and willing to explain you the history of the dish and how you should eat it. I also liked its location, hosted in an old but well deserved colonial building hidden in a small alley with its own garden. Prices above average for Hanoi standards but still quite reasonable.More

This restaurant is well worth a visit. My daughter had read reviews there were excellent and they were all accurate. The food was amazing, you really must go and try for yourself, it was a great experience. We’re looking forward to trying to replicate the...food at home. There was no menu, it’s one dish.

Super delicious! They have English version of menu but not as many choices - only set meal for two is shown on the English menu. Portion is too small for two - not many pieces of fish. But it’s super tasty!!!
