They train disadvantaged youth to learn about restaurant cooking and service. Really nice idea. But you will be surprised at the food quality. Really very good. Proper Vietnamese food. Service was good and competent albeit nervous. I would go back.

Description
KOTO stands for "Know one, teach one." KOTO is one of the most unique experiences in Vietnam for travelers who can enjoy a meal at a real working vocational training restaurant operated by one of the leading non-profit social enterprises in Vietnam.

KOTO is a unique not-for-profit social enterprise that started in 1999 in Hanoi. The program targets at-risk and disadvantaged youth—aged 16 to 22—with a 24-month-long training program in vocational hospitality, life skills and English.

KOTO’s Vision
Positive permanent change for at-risk and disadvantaged youth through the transformative power of social enterprise.

KOTO’s Mission
We believe at-risk and disadvantaged youth should have access to a holistic program that provides career training and life skills in a nurturing environment, where each builds self confidence and exercises their right to live a life of dignity.
