This was one of my favorite restaurants to visit for lunch. My partner and I liked it so much that we visited again and again. This restaurant offers rough and ready local dishes, all brilliantly done and super tasty. Flavors abound in each dish, and everything is fresh and as seasonal as possible. We had no problem devouring each shared dish, especially, all washed down with Vietnamese wine (like sake, but, a little more feisty). Chim Sao is certainly not for everyone, but, if you have an open mind, you'll easily find some of the best food served in Hanoi. Plus, the owner was really nice to us, very sweet, as well as her service crew.
