Been a frequent visitor of PnP already years and never have I been disappointed. Been there for both lunch and dinner several times and food and service has always been spot on. I like the interesting and innovative menu which is a fusion of Vietnamese and French cuisines. As most of the people know, Vietnamese food culture is truly amazing... More

If you want a have a Michelan Star meal in Hanoi, this is the place to go. Food is really good. Staff is, as most of Hanoi's citizens we met, very nice. Seems like all of them want you to have a very good time and feel welcome.

Southeast Asia, as depicted on almost every travel and food program is a magnet for street food and market stall dining. Tasty, cheap food while on the move. But there are times when the food hustle gets old and you just want to sit down (in air conditioning), be waited on and presented with amazing food, and you are will... More

We came to Pots n Pans after a recommendation and found it to be nice though full of travelers only. This is not a place to meet locals and seems to cater to foreign tastes (though well). Though the food, drink and atmosphere here are all nice with pleasant service, if you want to eat local and meet local then... More

We reserved a table by email without difficulty and were allocated our own private dining area. I wanted to visit this restaurant having purchased a cookery book on the street food of Vietnam and the writers had trained at the KOTO food and hospitality school here. We both had three courses and they were all outstanding. Starters of scallops and... More

This restaurant is on three floors, giving some interesting views of adjacent buildings. It is nicely decorated, comfortable, and serves very good food. The young staff are cheerful and helpful, and most speak good English. Well worth a visit.

This is a very chic western prices establishment recommended by top guidebooks. We went for our 'big night out' at the end of visit to Hanoi. The atmosphere and welcome were excellent and my wife was fully satisfied with her meal. I enjoyed my starter and dessert but my main was a disappointment. I ordered tenderloin of beef from the...

Pots ‘n Pans is about innovation. Vietnamese cuisine infused with an international flair.Our food takes the best ideas from modern Vietnamese and puts a new spin on them. The flavours are familiar but done differently. We don’t want to detract from what we believe to be the core of Vietnamese cuisine which is a big emphasis on fresh and local ingredients. However, we believe that the produce found in Vietnam should lend itself to a wider range of cooking techniques and presentation.Pots ‘n Pans is a dynamic partnership between Know One Teach One (KOTO) and its training program graduates along with its international partner; Small Giants. KOTO is a not-for-profit organisation in Vietnam that is changing the lives of street and disadvantaged youth through vocational training. Small Giants is a boutique Australian impact investment company that is dedicated to businesses that are changing the world.
