Iíve been in this very strange and very difficult place to rate in 2009 ... Itís a sort a small roundbound with a sort of "bar" on everyside ... You take your seat on this very small plastic chair and start drink the only beer available " bia hoi" for the price of 3000 dong (26000 dong is 1 euro ) ... A funny experience and the quality of the is not so bad like someone could think ...

Sit on plastic benches next to the street drinking 10 cent beers with food provided by wandering salesmen. Great in so many ways.

When reading up before my trip to Hanoi I was sceptical as to whether this place was worthy of an RB entry, but having been I have no further doubts. Itís not really the quintessential authentic bia hoi experience in that very few locals go there, but chances are youíll end up here a few nights like every other tourist in town. Youíll meet people from all over the world. Thereís one place which serves beer much colder and better than the others by the end of the day. I can picture which one it is but trying to describe it would be a waste of time. Just keep trying places until you get there. Youíll soon realise that drinking warm bia hoi isnít really sustainable, though others seem to manage. Rating for value doesnít even make sense when beers cost 3000VND. Police honk their horns as they advance so you can move your chairs (temporarily) off the road whilst they pass. The guys selling books also sell weed. Very memorable.

Although this place is not within the normal ranges of places at ratebeer, I MUST mention it (as the travel guides also do). Itís the famous must-PLACE where to meet other backpackers in the famous Old Quarter of Ha Noi. The place consists of a street junction where each of the four corners has their own outside street bar. Maybe you do not discover it, because it is tiny and the chairs are so small of Vietnamese standard, that you might even not make it worth a look. But we stayed for 2 weeks at the hotel next to and is was a pleasure every evening going there having chats with backpackers just arrived from all over Asia, you mention Nepal, India, China, Thailand ect. And the fresh beer gave it all a cozy dimension. An old vietnamese lady sells the tap-beer from a place almost hidden behind some carpets. Ok, the beer was not of what you can expect from what you meet in Europe or even at some other places in Ha Noi, but it was fresh, cold and very cheap around 0.1 Euro for a glass....and Iíll never forget it!
