However, if you can navigate through the metaphorical crowd of people up on pedestals and high horses, the food is actually very good.
The menu is quite small, allowing the kitchen team to focus on what they do best.
Lighter dishes, such as the Dan Huong salad will set you back VND79,000, and the vegan spring rolls come in fried or fresh form, each for VND99,000.
For something a bit more interesting, try the vegan snail rice noodles or vegan pho, both VND79,000.
Take a group of friends and tuck into the Dan Huong hotpot (VND279,000), or enjoy a manageable plate of mushroom rice for VND109,000.
Located at 25 Xuan Dieu, Tay Ho, Hanoi. Open daily from 10am until 9.30pm. For more information, call 0965 961384
