It's our go to Vietnamese restaurant in the west end. Always great food (try the roast Duck), and usually friendly services, as long as it's not frenetically busy.
Amazing food, amazing service, great prices. Would definitely recommend.
The starters were great but the mains were really poor. Was unimpressed.
Great food! Food also came very quick! Service could be better from staff. Bathrooms are very clean which is an important thing
The best restaurant in all of London. I eat here twice a week when visiting.
Fabulous food - would certainly recommend a visit here!
Food and service was good. I like the menu which had a good selection of dishes, ones l don’t even get to eat at home. I usually order homemade lemonade and they did a good one. Also introduced a friend to Vietnamese food who also enjoyed it. Overall a good meal.
Let Hanoi was a bright spot in a tired Chinatown. Summer and spring rolls were highlights, as was the friendly service. I'd recommend it and return to try the pho.
Great food and service. The duck was amazing! Would go back in a flash - thank you
I'm a devotee but I took a Vietnamophile friend who couldn't stop raving about it, said it was his new favourite Vietnamese, handed their card out to a gentleman in the London Coliseum toilets who was asking which restaurant we were talking about!
Great service, food and hospitality
We booked many weeks in advance for our annual Chinese New Year celebration with friends. We sat at what looked like a good table - a booth style table for 6 people - but quickly realised that it was uncomfortably cold. It was a very cold winter evening and the door was constantly left ajar, allowing a constant stream of freezing air into the room and directly to our table. We asked if the heater above the door could be turned in but it never was. We ended up putting our coats on.
The biggest issue we had was the food delivery. We all ordered starters and mains. Arriving first were 2 mains. 5 minutes later we got all but 1 starter which arrived another 5 minutes later after chasing. Mains then started arriving haphazardly - with the initial mains being cold - and after chasing a main which had not arrived, we were informed that the 2 initial mains were delivered in error. The reason given for this was that they were very busy. Considering it’s a Saturday night in Chinatown, this is a poor justification. The 2 initial mains were replaced by new dishes but as drinks were also having to be chased, all good feeling had disappeared. A thoroughly disappointing evening.
We arrived earlier than expected and they accomodated us no problem. Resturant was basic, bit cold think they had an issue with heating system. Main thing food was really good. Impressed with our first taste of Vietnamese dining
Our guests were happy too.
Well seasoned and carefully prepared food. Service was casual, but prompt and friendly.
Just the place for a casual meal around a film or play. Great value for money
Good cheap food. Tofu summer rolls were run-of-the-mill but the octopus, duck and mango and prawn salad were all very good. Service is quick and to the point. It's small, reasonably cramped brisk. There's suprisingly little in the way of both good and inexpensive in the local area, and it's a very good spot if you need a quick sit down meal for two. I was surprised to see it packed on the first Friday in January, so booking is probably useful.
It was cold in the room. The food was good and we'll definitely return to the restaurant.
Excellent Vietnamese restaurant worth spending time and money with. Food was amazing, especially the Chat La Lot and the lemongrass chicken. Pho was not hugely impressive although tasty.
Good basic Vietnamese food. The background music is dire, but it’s not enough to stop you from enjoying treats like morning glory. Helpful staff. Will visit again.
Our favourite 'independent' Vietnamese restaurant. Within easy reach of theatreland and the West End. It's alway busy, so don't expect a quiet, or even spacious, table. But do expect good food, and if you are inclined, a nice themed cocktail too. Oh, and Vietnamese coffee, which is always good.
Had lunch with the fam, and enjoyed all the dishes, especially the pork bun sa, sea bass and duck. Quick and efficient service.
Very disappointing food compared to any other Vietnamese I have experienced in London. Even the pho was luke warm and lacking in flavour.
Excellent food, ‘cheap and cheerful’ gem! Cuisine is authentic, tasty and well portioned
Good range of menu options - spicy for me & mild for my niece. Good service.
Food was ok, although had much better Vietnamese elsewhere, Service was efficient i slightly brusque
Staff couldn’t have been more considerate and helpful. Seriously delicious food and well priced for everything. Would def go back! Thanks :)
The food was superb especially the Mango Seabass and Grilled duck. I liked the settings and decoration.
The staff were friendly and cordial.
A highly recommended restaurant in China town.
I cannot speak for the friend I was with but my food portions were very small. Charging £3 for a bowl of small rice is unacceptable. Although the mango sea-bass I had was very nice.
The service was perfect, up until the end, when me and my friend opted to not pay the voluntary service charge. Although the waiter didn't say anything, we could sense his annoyance which is unprofessional.
Atmosphere was nice and quiet with some low chatter. Restaurant is small and decorated very nicely with good mood lighting too.
Had the pho with mango and it did not taste like pho at all. the broth was more of a thick sauce. the taste was pretty bland so ended up leaving most of it. the fresh spring rolls we good and the vegetarian spring rolls were excellent.
I have just come back from a few months in Vietnam so was expecing something more auhentic, would not recommend as a vietnamese restaurant with the other more authentic ones in London
Food was tasty, but a little bit samey, despite the fact we got an array of dishes. Waiters cleared our table of food and wine - even though we just popped out to smoke. When we returned we had to ask for our wine back and chase up food that had been thrown away. We were only gone 5 mins lol.
At least they're efficient.
Le Hanoi is a pleasant enough place, but I found my starter and main course somewhat bland, although my friends seemed happy with theirs. I also found the service a bit too light touch - I was keen to order a second drink but no one came to offer one after we started eating.
Delicious food. Good presentation. The air-condition was down when we visit.
Always good food, especially the Cha La Lot! The service is a bit hit and miss, and some of the table seating is a bit close, but it's always a good meal. And great if you're in the front for people watching in China Town.
The food was really tasty and portion sizes were generous. The service was good, but the seating was a little cramped.
