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.

As a coeliac, I loved eating here as everything on the menu was gluten free! I'd highly recommend the bun cha with tofu and ordering extra vegetable spring rolls. It was amazing to eat spring rolls without fear of cross contamination. The menu is not...labelled as gluten free, but I first came here as part of a food tour where my Vietnamese tour guide spoke with staff to confirm it was safe to eat as a coeliac. I loved the food so much we visited again on our last night. This restaurant has an interesting layout, as the tables and chairs are set into the floor.More

In my top 3 meals on our whole Vietnam trip. Excellent quality bun cha and absolutely delicious. The spring rolls were also exceptional. Service was flawless and prices reasonable. There was a food tour here when we came so also a good sign how great...it is. Wonderful dining experience I could not fault a thing. If you’re looking for bun cha in Hanoi, this is the place.More

You have to try it! Everything is gluten free (the fried spring rolls too) and it is so yummi. It is so great to find a place were you can eat safely when you have celiac’s disease. We went there twice because we liked it...so much. Plus, the location is pretty lovelyMore

The place is quite underrated when you see it from outside. But going in is something that you must do. The choices are simple but they are super rewarding. I have never eaten pork grilled like that anywhere in Vietnam. Super tasty!!!

When I mentioned to friends that we’d been to Bun Cha Ta, their first reaction was “not the one Obama had been to”! Wife and I didn’t know which restaurant the former president had visited but we love the food at Boon Cha Ta. It...is a very popular local restaurant which has a very simple menu. We’d ordered their signature white rice noodles with fried pork and side dishes of fried spring roll (seafood and vegetarian versions). The white noodles and vegetables were served separately so we dipped the noodles and vegetables into the pork soup. Tasted really delicious. Bun Cha Ta is located in the Old Quarter and was within walking distance from our hotel at Hoan Kiem area. Staff are friendly and prompt. Overall this is a recommended place if you’re in Hanoi.More

Read about here on Michelin Guide, rated Bib Gourmand and wanted to try something traditional and local to Hanoi. A very “rustic” feel - we were seated upstairs and it’s shoes off and seated at sunken floor tables. The food was delicious - we had...the traditional house dish (bun cha, obviously!) and flavours were excellent. Staff explained what it was and how to eat it (add garlic and chilli!). A great experience for relaxed lunch - and very very reasonable!More

The bun cha dish here is really delicious and worth trying. The grilled meat and vermicelli are fresh, and the dish is combined with raw vegetables and delicious fish sauce. I am very impressed with the taste and preparation of this bun cha dish. Price...is also very reasonable.More

We tried a few places but this was our favourite bun cha. Very flavourful gravy, the grilled and minced pork were to perfection in my view. The owner and service staff were very knowledgable and polite. We were there for 5 days and when here...3 times. the place is small so be a bit patient or go a little off hours.More

Absolutely fantastic. We were recommended a few places to give Bun Cha a red hot crack as the dish of Hanoi and this was by far the best. So good we wen't back twice in 24 hours. (And yes, this is way better than Obama...Bun Cha which we was good but not worth the hype). Food was balanced and fresh. Served in a cute two storey family run establishment, 100% ask for a seat upstairs - you'll see why! Service was on point with our orders taken quickly and food delivered within minutes. I would recommend enjoying the #1 combination bun cha & 2 x spring rolls. I have never had spring rolls as delicious - will really struggle back in Sydney now! Bonus points - the team did not even ask for a review which for anyone who has travelled Vietnam will know is a rarity and why so many places are rated so highly (sometimes unjustly). Makes it very challenging to find the best spots. Hope you enjoy as much as we did :)More
