Choosing a location associated with the historical site of the Temple of Literature Quoc Tu Giam, Gia Restaurant was born with the desire to convey the core cultural values of Vietnam. Right from the moment you set foot in the shop, you will be attracted by the architectural elements of Indochinese style with wood materials and dark blue - brown tones. The main dining room is a modern space with silver glass walls, on which An Nam people are painted in daily activities, creating a rustic feeling but still extremely luxurious The menu at Home only has about 13 dishes but will be constantly changed according to the season, changing the menu every three months. Gia mainly uses very Vietnamese ingredients such as vegetables in the Northwest or giang leaves in Thai culinary culture, traditional dishes such as vermicelli, eel soup, chicken noodles,... Already familiar, now recreated in a completely new and interesting perspective. Through each dish, Gia tells the story of traditional Vietnamese culture, about a cuisine that connects the past, present and future.

Excellent

We didn’t expect that our first dinner in Vietnam and Hanoi would cost so much but I’d say that it was for a good dining experience.

The restaurant is located in a nondescript shophouse with a small sign. Our Grab driver missed it the first time when the car went past.

Wife and I ordered a tasting menu. The servings were small but came with a very innovative display of creativity using the local produce.

I liked the marbled eel which was grilled eel with tender meat. The next dish that I liked was the mushroom rice. A small serving but very tasty.

Staff are prompt and enthusiastic. We had a chance to chat with the sous chef in the kitchen and met with the bright and young chefs. Great fun chatting with the team.

Overall it was a delightful experience at Gia (by the way the word sounded like “Jia” in Chinese.

Very Good

This restaurant serves a sampling menu. The service here felt very rushed and the wines paired were not chilled enough. When we asked to slow down the courses it was still fast. Having said that, food was alright and the wine pairing worked. Some hit and some misses, but the plating was pretty. I believed the service staff tried their best. Restaurant ambience is beautiful. Hopefully they fine tune and smooth out the rough edges soon.
