Worth going to and supporting a great cause, friendly, good food not over expensive. We found out about it through carryforkids.org and took some donations they were very greatful.
My boyfriend and I enjoyed a lovely lunch at Koto today. We heard from other Australian tourists about this institution and they had raved about the western selection. This restaurant did not disappoint the menu was limited however we had no difficulty in choosing something to order. The restaurant offers a Vietnamese selection and western selection. The food was delicious... More
Good location, very friendly service and good prices. Seating area was chilled out on the first floor with the low tables and cushions. Food looked great, maybe a bit lacking in flavour though especially the fish underneath the beautiful batter on the fish and chips. Worth a stop if you're near the temple of literature.
We really enjoyed our meal at Koto. Its a brilliant concept and well worth supporting. The food was excellent. I would have gone back for a second one if we had had the time. The staff were so happy and very keen. You could tell they really enjoyed their jobs. Our waitress was shy but very friendly and really wanted... More
was very excited to be visiting this restaurant as I didn't manage to get there the last trip. I was not disappointed. Koto's offers both Asian and European food that is very good. The deserts I had were also very good but what was exciting to me was to be served by the young trainees who are eager to show... More
We ate at 6 restaurants in Asia that were helping train young people learn the restaurant craft. This was very disappointing when compared with the other training restaurants. Very few people at the restaurant the night we went. Service was poor--English skills were nearly nonexistent. Only place in 42 days in SE Asia we got different food served than we... More
The idea of a social enterprise restaurant to up skill Vietnamese street kids was appealing, but their food was equally as delicious. The cha ca and beef in ginger were sublime. Try and sit on the fourth floor balcony for stunning views. The price was reasonable. £10 for two mains and two beers. You can get cheaper street food but... More
We went to Koto on our guide recommendation after visiting the Temple of Literature. The first impression was not great as they were washing the floors downstairs (it was 16:00) and wanted us to go to the 4th floor which for our group was difficult but in the end we got a table on the ground floor. The young lady... More
The food quality is by far the best I have had in the last four weeks. The portions are generous. The five spice duck was sensational I would classify it as a 'must do' when in Hanoi. I'll be giving the Saigon KOTO a try
The restaurant is run by Australians. They train under-privileged kids to work in a restaurant as chefs and waiters. It is a worthwhile cause to support. The food was great and the prices reasonable. We had duck stir-fry and bamboo beef. A good restaurant and well worth visiting. Crossing the street in front of the restaurant on foot through the... More
