One of my all-time fav places to eat Vietnamese food. It's a small restaurant that's geared toward serving Hanoi foods that you can't get elsewhere. A few tourist groups are brought here, but mainly it's Hanoi residents that crowd the place for lunch and dinner.

Every single dish we've tried here has been superb. Honestly. From the veggies to the mains, it's the most tasty food imaginable - plus there are tons of special foods unavailable elsewhere in the city. My fav are any of the canh chua (sour soups) and the sea dragon fish (grilled over open flame).

Prices are very reasonable and the staff, while not English speaking, attend to detail and are friendly.

Not a posh or romantic spot -- they go for the "traditional" feel to some degree (including an amzing assortment of chipped pottery dishes). Great place for families (they love kids) or when you want to sit down and have a flavorful meal.

Having visited here with my boss and our customers. Good place and good Vietnamese foods.I was suprised about their staffs, all of them are quite low and dress a brown uniform like the old time of Vietnam. Services also good.
Will come here again!

I visited 1946 this past weekend because I am always seeking good Vietnamese food, in a clean environs. I was impressed with the bright, clean dining room. From what I can tell very little English is spoken so thats why I was happy I invited a Vietnamese friend. The menu is in Vietnamese also but I gathered that very few Westerners venture here based on that its set in an all Vietnamese neighborhood.
I wasn't very hungry and am vegetarian (with the exception of some fish occasionally). My friend ordered us a nice vegetable that turned out to be flower buds (Hoa Thien Ly). It was very tasty and cooked nicely - not oily or overly garlicky as many places seem to do to vegetables. We asked for a fish with very few bones and what we received was easily the best fish I've had in Vietnam and that includes Phu Quoc island, Very "meaty" and sure enough no tiny bones. We ordered rice that was was perfectly cooked, not over or under cooked.
They also have their own specialty peanuts that are salty and spicy, a nice change from any peanuts I've had in Hanoi. They serve a nice flower tea with your meal, cool and refreshing.
This place is not that hard to find and well worth a visit for traditional Vietnamese food.
