Just a short walk from Anděl metro station, the entrance to Old Hanoi hides a huge restaurant behind. The food is very good and they have put a lot of effort into creating a Vietnamese theme – no waving cats!
A bottle of Malbec was 599 Kč, a 0.1l glass 85 Kč. A 1l carafe of tap water was 49 Kč and we were charged another 49 Kč for a refill. Excessive tap water charging is actually typical of all of the Vietnamese restaurants we’ve visited in Prague. Old Hanoi joins the list of Prague restaurants where tap water is 50 Kč or less.
Spring rolls 89 Kč.
Prawn dim sum 109 Kč.
Duck in a red curry sauce with rice 289 Kč – big enough to share.
Everything was delicious and we’d order again.
Many Vietnamese restaurants in Prague occupy former Czech pubs and apart from a few waving cats, they continue with the same decor. The food at Old Hanoi is very good and the theming really adds something. We will return – I just hope they read this review and make tap water free, or at least stop charging for refills.
