Location and contact

Bun Cha Ta is a Vietnamese dish of grilled pork and noodle, which is thought to have originated from Hanoi, Vietnam. Bun cha is served with grilled fatty pork (cha) over a plate of white rice noodle (bun) and herbs with a side dish of dipping sauce. The dish was described in 1959 by Vietnamese food writer Vu Bang (1913–1984) who described Hanoi as a town "transfixed by bun cha." Hanoi Bun Cha Ta ’s first bun cha restaurant was on Gia Ngu street, Hoan Kiem District, in Hanoi's Old Quarter and moved to 21 Nguyen Huu Huan street now Bun cha is popular in the Northern region of Vietnam. In the South, a similar dish of rice vermicelli and grilled meat is called bun thit nuong

We ordered the number 1 from the menu bun cha and spring rolls absolutely delicious, great prices and lovely staff. We sat downstairs but the upstairs has sunken seats where you take your shoes off. Really great restaurant best bun cha we had in Hanoi.

Great taste, good location, reasonable prices. The trifecta. Visit this place, I don't think you'll regret it.

This was a lovely quiet restaurant. We went upstairs and sat at sunken tables. We ate spring rolls and soup, washed down with beer. Great value, friendly service, very clean and air-conditioned

Down a little alley that is easy to miss, this place runs a brisk business and is a must-try in Hanoi! Best Bun Cha here!
