Great little hidden restaurant with locals there too. Very cheap and good quality albeit a quick in and out type job, would go again!

A cute place that offers only 3 items and maybe 2 types of drinks (beer and tea). The 'beef salad' is fabulously tasty - we ate there 3 times in one week! It's not a very roomy place, but you get your meal almost instantaneously and nobody stays much longer than about 15 minutes.

Recommended by a food tour guide, we sought out this little gem of a restaurant, offering up a minimalist menu of absolutely delicious “dry noodle” salad. Coupled with a beer, it was one of the best meals we had the whole trip. Service was really fast and friendly but the best part was sitting at a long table along with... More

This restaurant was located next to our hotel. We stopped by for dinner on our last night in Hanoi and it was packed. The menu basically has one main dish, the beef noodle salad. And let me tell you, it is amazing!

Yep - what everyone else said. Just do it! Simple food, minimalist menu, good beer & great tastes. Restored our faith in the local cuisine after a couple of mediocre experiences.

If you're a bit anxious about Hanoi's street food, this is a terrific place to get the same vibe, wonderful food, but be able to sit at a real table and get out of the street. The vermicelli, meat, greens and broth concoction is very tasty and soothing, service is quick and the place is clean as a whistle. The... More

Went on a walking food tour of Hanoi and this was on of the first stops. Only four or five things on the menu and it was busy (really packed with locals and tourist - have to wait for table) had the beef noodle (dry) dish and it really nice and really cheap. It is a no frills restaurant -... More

Just around the corner from our hotel we choose this little noodle bar for its proximity and our need for a quick lunch. Only 4 items on the menu made it easy to choose: the dish the cafe is named after. Delicious, fresh, not spicy - unless you added the sliced chili on the side. A dish of rice noodles... More

Our group of three with varying levels of food adventurousness all loved this simple, two item menu spot. Smells delicious, was so cheap, and a different flavour than what we had before. Loved the street food, but was nice to sit on a taller bench for a meal :) highly recommend!

Classic Vietnamese style of place, but a taste of main dish is excellent. My advice - if u r in Hanoi, u have to find this place!

Description
Bun bo Nam Bo is marinating the beef, then comes making 'nuoc cham' and the pickled vegetables (shredded carrot and papaya). The pickled vegies is crispy, a little sour and a little sweet, which even makes me eat two bowls of the noodle at once. Remember to pickle the carrot (and papaya first, before marinating the beef) since it takes at least 1 hour to get a good flavor on the carrot.
