Dont be fooled by the outside of this little family run restaurant, its surrounded by far more fancy looking places but its the best by FAR! Once you are inside, its a cute as a button. Its in the front part of a family home and the family (including granny!) do all the cooking and serving. The food was some of the nicest we had in Vietnam (yum claypots!) and the beer was cheap. The staff where super friendly and the ambiance was warm, local and 'real' feeling. Hanoi can feel a little touristy at times, and this place is a very welcome break from that. What more could you ask for? We rarely go to a place more than once when we are traveling because we like to try new things, we in 4 days we went back to this place 3 times! And we would do it again! HIGHLY recomended.

We stopped in here for a cooking class and really enjoyed ourselves. This is a small family run restaurant with great local food. We were able to customize our menu, learn things we really wanted to and finished with some really tasty food. The price for our class was very reasonable, much cheaper than elsewhere in town. We strongly recommend Phone Café for a cooking class and or a good meal!

The Cauo Lao is the best dish by far, cheap food and even cheaper beer. You can get a beer for 20c and it's cold and refreshing. We visited almost every day as the food is so good and a lot cheaper than what u will pay in the other restaurants. We tried a lot of places here but this is by far the best. Give it a go even just for the one dish you won't regret it.

It might indeed not look very attractive, but we were pleasantly surpised by the simple but extreemly tasty claypot chickenbreast and claypot eggplant dishes!

We were lucky enough to have a private cooking course for 2 people at no extra cost and were allowed to choose the menu ourselves. The chef was very good in explaining everything and allowed us to take our time. All the ingredients were good quality and fresh that day and the recipes were very traditional. The whole experience was fantastic and there was a huge amount of food to eat at the end, all of which was delicious! Very nice family restaurant and extremely good value for money on the waterfront.
