Cha Ca La Vong

Traditional but not cheap

What we say: 3 stars

The original cha ca restaurant, this place continues to attract both Vietnamese and foreign custom

Cha Ca La Vong serves just the one dish which gives it its name: fish served sizzling on a platter with dill sauce, fresh herbs, noodles and crushed peanuts.

The ambience is undeniably authentic -- in a crowded, noisy, rude, greasy way -- but opinion on the quality of the food remains mixed, with some declaring it delicious and unmissable and others being underwhelmed.

At 150,000 VND per person you might expect a guaranteed wow, but if you're keen to try out authentic Vietnamese dishes this place should -- probably -- still be on the list.
