Blue Butterfly

Top choice vietnamese in Hanoi

Blue Butterfly floats above its weight with the lamp-lit dark-wood stylings of a heritage house and a good-value menu of Vietnamese classics, from bun cha (barbecued pork) to duck with tamarind sauce. Staff offer knowledgeable suggestions and demonstrate how to tackle dishes such as nem lui (pork grilled on lemongrass skewers, wrapped in rice paper and dipped in peanut sauce).
