Time Out Says

Vietnamese restaurant Hanoi Naturally is as authentic as they come. From the no-frills cafeteria-style interiors to the eye-poppingly strong Vietnamese coffee, this is a transporting dining experience at a fraction of the cost of the flight ticket. And then some.

If you’re struggling to know where to start (and with this many excellent dishes, it is a struggle), go for the classic summer rolls, packed with veg and shrimp, or the meaty stuffed crab shell, with its delicious mix of juicy crustacean and finely
chopped noodles.

Absolutely unmissable is a bowl of pho – whether chicken, beef or vegetable, slurping up this fragrant, brothy noodle soup is one of the best comfort food experiences in town. Other classics include bun noodle dishes and crunchy salads packed with julienned papaya, carrots and punchy fish sauce.

The only thing this place is missing is a trade in lunchtime bánh mì – given JLT’s massive office crowd, it feels like they’re missing a trick (and, frankly, we’re missing a coriander and shredded chicken sandwich in our lives).

Ultimately, Hanoi Naturally doesn’t do anything fancy with its food, nor does it try to elevate the cuisine into something else. And that’s what makes it the affordable, reliable favourite it is.
