Bit noisy but food extremely tasty. Try and make a booking and reserve a seat out the front in the open - I think it would be more enjoyable noise wise.

I was staying at Ha Noi old centre hotel when trip advisor said this place was closeby. After reading all the reviews, I have come to the conclusion that they must be fake. The food was horrible! My friend had a stir fried beef with pineapple and onion - one word, bland. I had the 'cha ca' fried fish, dish... More

I often have lunch here with friends. Food is fresh and well presented and altogether enjoyable. The menu is mainly Vietnamese with a few international dishes. Balcony seats available but the roof beams make moving about a tricky affair if you are tall.

We stayed at Hanoi Old Centre Hotel (19 Hang Hanh Street) in January 2012. Out of hunger and the fact that most places were closed because of the Tet Holiday, we went across the street to Old Street Café. I was skeptical at first (dodgy looking and sort of empty – not really the ambiance for a great eating place)... More

We discovered this place on our last day in hanoi. This is just right across the street where we stay (Hanoi Old Centre). We were surprised how affordable their food where and they hava a good balcony perfect for a smoke or a few beer during winter.

We only discovered this restaurant on our second day in Hanoi and ate their for the next 2 days! Amazing food (and cheap!)! Nice balconies to sit outside and just enjoy the vibe of Hanoi! Even gave us free bananas at the end of the meal as desert... Very nice!

Nice building with a great view over the street to watch the world walk by. The food was very cheap and it was clean and well presented but it was just a bit too boring to get excited about. The rice was cold which really let the whole dish down. A rating of 'Very Good' is a bit generous perhaps... More
