okay, u gonna make a mess but eating this, all this nodles and spring role ingredient plus the a bit sticky sauce. But they taste nice, would be better if they are hotter. Perhaps they don't suppose to be hot? One yet is only enough for one person and I cannot really tell the different between the sets, they are taste the same. Not the cheapest Bun Cha I had in Hanoi.

Staff were excellent and restaurant had a nice ambience. We ate upstairs where shoes needed to be taken off.

Very limited menu as expected and food ok but nothing special.

During my visit to Vietnam, I was on a special diet, so I could eat a very limited variety of foods, and the whole diet was reduced mainly to bun cha and some other soups. From this reason, I tried this dish on millions of places across Vietnam! And the bun cha at the Bun Cha Ta restaurant was definitely one of the best. The soup was moderately spicy and very tasty, not greasy at all, the meat was so delicious and there was enough of it, the herbs that are served as an additive were varied, and the seafood rolls were definitely one of the better ones I tried!

My friend and his family (who are Vietnamese) recommended I come here. The staff are lovely and speak good English, the restaurant is clean, the food is delicious and very well priced! I got the grilled Pork soup, rice noodles, salad and 2 spring rolls at 95kVND! And the chocolate, egg and cream desert for 40kVND which is good!! I come back here without reservation!

This bun cha place is very safe. Good for first time travelers. Eating in Vietnam can be intimidating for the uninitiated. There's so many options to eat in one's view as their strolling down the street, that a place like this indoor, air -conditioned restaurant can be a decent 1st step into the food of Hanoi. Everything here tastes safe, average, compared to the Bun Cha you'd get from one of the street shops. To be honest, the spots i found to eat in Hanoi were restaurants i did not find on Trip Advisor. Best to use your senses. "if it looks good, eat it!" (shameless zimmern plug)
