You can read about the origin and mission of KOTO and convince yourself you should support the endeavor but in reality there are 2 reasons you should eat here: the quality of the cuisine and the excellence of the service.

Good, but not particularly memorable after so many terrific meals on this trip. Do, however, get a table close to the window with a view of the Temple of Literature.

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.
