Cafe in Hanoi

Stunning four-storey modernist cafe-bar-restaurant overlooking the Temple of Literature, where the interior design has been taken very seriously, from the stylish seating to the fresh flowers by the till. Daily specials are chalked up on a blackboard, and the short menu has everything from excellent Vietnamese food to yummy pita wraps and beer-battered fish and chips.

KOTO was started by Vietnamese Australian Jimmy Pham as a not-for-profit project providing career training and guidance to disadvantaged children and teens.
