My husband and I used to come here 3 to 5 times a week for lunch more than 20 years ago. After so many years, we were very happy to see the huge improvement from this small restaurant. Everything look nice and clean. The two sisters are the owners and they still standing in the front to greet customers and colect the money. There are more choices for "nem ran" and grilled pork than before. With about $70k or $3 USD you can have a very good lunch, a specialty of Hanoi. Highly recommend!

We kept hearing about Bun Cha during our visit to Hanoi. We found this little restaurant quite by accident. This is a family- run place, very basic, but with good service. When our Bun Cha arrived, it was a large portion with a delicious flavor. We highly recommended it several new friends we me in our tour group. It was great and very inexpensive.
