In Hanoi, there cannot be not fish noodle stalls, even that on some roads when you walk for a short length, you can see two or three stalls to eat. However, it is not easy for you to find a good fish noodles in Hanoi with standard taste. Though the fish noodles are processed differently, depending on each region, each taste, finally they gather in a food in Hanoi. I know, there some stalls selling fish noodles make customers unsatisfied and they do not want to come back, but the following stalls will certainly be different, will make the prissiest people give compliments.
1. Van fish noodles - Quan Thanh
This stall is lying on Quan Thanh Street and has a relatively small façade, so you can difficultly realize it when passing. Two stalls both selling fish noodles here are next to each other, and people often confuse. However if you see in details, you will see Van stall having a courtyard behind the house, it is spacious, and you can lay out 5, 6 tables.

The open time is from the morning to till the noon, and it is crowded with customers every moment. Especially at noon, the officers coming here to eat are very crowded, and sometimes they have to wait for a long time. On the other hand, after a long time of waiting, the bowl of fish noodles will not make you disappointed with the bowl full of noodles, the delicious water and many big crispy fish spices. A fish noodle bowl is about 30,000 VND will make you full over the noon, because there many fish, more than noodles.
The fish here is crispy and not stinking, not dry, even when you dip it into the water it is still quite crispy. However the thing I do not like here is that they put too much glutamate into.
2. Sam Cay Si fish noodle - Trung Yen lane (Dinh Liet Street)
Trung Yen lane is a small one, and it is difficult for transport to move in this lane. However there are many delicious dishes gathering here, popular but famous, over many recent years. One of all is the fish noodle, the dish you should try at least once in Sam Cay Si restaurant. The restaurant is lying in the corner, because the road is wide, this location is quite convenient and spacious.
The fish noodle bowl here is quite full, the sauce is fragrant with tomato, cucumber and pineapple, and the fish is tilapia which is fried crispy, looking very attractive. The fish is thick, firm and cut suitably to the mouth. Especially, here is the fish dish is quite different, which when eat you will have to wonder what it is. Unlike many places, the fish dish is homemade, the shape does not follow the pattern, when you eat the fish is still crispy in spite of dipping for a long time in the sauce.
In Sam Cay Si restaurant, you can eat fish noodle and grilled fish cake.
The open time is from the morning to the afternoon, but if you want to enjoy the most delicious and full fish noodle bowl, you remember to go at noon. The price of the fish noodle bowl is 35,000 VND, but it will certainly make you full till the afternoon and totally appointed. Near to this stall, is Ta Hien - the beer street of Hanoi, where you can spend a short summer time to get cool.
3. Hanh Beo fish noodle - Nguyen Thai Hoc.
The stall sells fish noodle from early noon to early afternoon, passing through Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, the crowd scene is at every moment, and people line up and jostle. To be able to eat a bowl full of fish noodles, you will have to experience the feeling like lining up for food stamps during the subsidy period.
To be honest, the stall only sell at noon, the number of customers are very crowded and when the customers order, the owner of the restaurant just fries the fish, so you have to wait for a long time. In addition, you have to line up to take the fish first, after get the noodles and pay immediately. At the moment, the fish is fried by the owner, set on the plate and served with the noodles.
In other stalls, the fish and noodles are put into the sauce, here the fish and the noodles are eaten individual. And definitely, you must have a bowl of sauce next to it. Because the sauce in this restaurant is quite characteristic, strong and mouthful, that the fish is served with it is really great.

When the customers order, the owner starts frying the fish, so you will have wait for a time. However it is ensured that the fish is fragant, crispy, yellow and hot, just look you will interest. The price is 30,000 VND per bowl of fish noodle, quite a lot of fish, and you can be full till the afternoon. With other time of day, you can take a request to your tour-guide in Hanoi culture tour to try eating a special bowl of fish noodle if you really want. They will eat with you and introduce to you a fish-noodle restaurant open at night.
4. Thai Binh fish noodle - Hang Bai lane
This place is a family restaurant, located in an ancient house in Hang Bai lane, and especially crowded at noon with customers. When coming into the house, you will have feeling of the old days. The feelings here is that it is not in a restaurants or stalls, but you are sitting in a warm house and eating the dishes cooked by the grandmother, when eating the noodle bowl you will certainly feel warm- hearted.
Fish noodles here are Thai Binh noodles, yam, and fishes are yellow, soft and without bones. And the sauce is equal to the noodles, soaked spicy and delicious. This dish is not the liquid food, the sauce is not filled, and when eating people will have strange feeling.
In the fish noodle bowl, there also is some fat greaves which is served with water dropwort or Neptune and a little bamboo shoot. All seem very simple but it becomes perfect for a cool afternoon. The fish is not fried crispy, but it is simmered, soft and fragrant. And the sauce is quite salty, but when eating with thick noodles and sour bamboo shoot, it is quite suitable and easily eaten.
You look the bowl of the fish noodle quite small, but in fact it is not small at all.
Only with 30000 VND, you will be full at the lunch and totally appointed.
5. Ut Ha fish noodles - Quang Trung.
It is a restaurant recently opened, but quite a lot of customers are also satisfied with its services. Though the space of the restaurant is small, it is designed simply, neatly and cleanly, and the staff is very professional, agile.
The fish here is filtered the bone, fried crispy, dip into the sauce, but it is still crispy and fragrant. However, mackerel is a little fishy. Besides, in this restaurant, there is also the bowel dish of fish, it is crispy and tough.

The most special thing of the fish noodle here is the sauce which is quite different from that of other restaurants due to the sour, spicy and bar taste, and the more you eat the more you like it. It is the spicy taste of the sauce that make the other tastes stimulated, and the dish more attracted. And especially there is also the water of tamarind which is not in many other restaurants. The sour taste of tamarind makes the dish more delicious.
Though the restaurant is new opened, the service is qualified, the price is from 30000 VND to 35000 VND, not cheap but worthy.
