    At Red Bean our vision is to become one of Vietnam’s leading restaurant brands serving modern Vietnamese cuisine with high quality and innovative ideas but never forgetting the roots and value of true and authentic Vietnamese cooking.

    Our aim is to build a great reputation in the hospitality and restaurant trade. To help lead the way in creating inspirational dishes which keep true to Vietnamese cooking embodying the five elements of metal, wood, fire, water and earth that underpin Vietnamese food.  

    Why Red Bean? It may seem a humble and simple red bean (in Vietnamese đậu đỏ) but it is a versatile, very important and far reaching ingredient in Vietnamese (and other Asian) dishes both sweet and savory. As well as having a high nutritional value, philosophically the red bean embodies a deep and powerful meaning within Asian societies. It is believed to be a symbol of love and fidelity, and is featured in legends and poems about love and romance.

    We chose the name Red Bean as it is symbolic of what we aspire to in Vietnamese cuisine. Let our menu take you on a culinary Vietnamese journey stimulating the senses and taste buds. Colors, flavors and fragrances of our famous and not so famous national and regional dishes are combined and exquisitely presented. Dine at Red Bean and fall in love with Vietnam.

    As proud parents we thought you would also like to know that there is a second and more personal reason we chose the name Red Bean. When our youngest son was born we immediately nicknamed him đậu đỏ or Red Bean because he looked like a big red bean the first few months of his life. And the name stuck. He loves his food and we love him and perhaps one day he will grow up to be a chef by which time we hope there will be a chain of Red Bean restaurants throughout Vietnam!

    We went to this restaurant at 530pm without a reservation and were lucky to get a table. Book in advance. The food is among the best we had in vietnam, the dishes were all perfection, so many fresh flavours. I had snakehead fish with chilli and garlic...it was some sort of diy rice paper roll thing, not sure what it was called but it was very good. It's very much a tourist/ expat vibe but we would definitely recommend eating here whilst in hanoi.

    Booked our new year meal with this restaurant after reading the reviews from tripadvisor. Great service and the atmosphere is good. Miss the Bun Cha and fried spring rolls there, it's definitely a must-try restaurants in old quarter. I emailed to reserve the seats and received prompt reply from the restaurant manager Mr Andy Phuc. I think this is the service we miss in Singapore.

    We had a fabulous experience at the Gourmet Corner Restaurant. The staff were absolutely lovely and the food was fantastic. The restaurant is really lovely with beautiful views and I would recommend it to other travellers.

    My partner and I stayed as guests in the Hanoi Elegance hotel, so we enjoyed our breakfast every morning in the restaurant. The breakfast buffet had a good range of food to select from (and I particularly liked the chocolate mousse). I like the atmosphere of the restaurant, it's small but cosy with window views all around - I liked looking over Hanoi with views of the lake. The staff were particularly friendly and welcoming too.

    We ate one evening meal in the restaurant also. Although we didn't book and the restaurant was pretty full, the staff happily found us a table. The quality and presentation of the food was great and it was soooo tasty!! Our waiter was very attentive and explained to us the best way to eat certain dishes. The view of the city lights of Hanoi was lovely.

    For our last night in Hanoi we had a wonderful dinner with excellent service. It was just a short walk from our hotel. The Vietnamese dishes especially the green mango salad were a highlight.
