1. Vi Lai

In Hanoi's vegetarian community, Vi Lai is a well-known treasure known for its attention to design and architecture that blends with nature.

With meals costing roughly VND100,000 ($4) per plate, Vi Lai belongs to the high-end category and is an excellent option for entertaining friends or celebrating important events. Pasta with rose and peach, bamboo shoot rolls, lotus root shakes, and bread with artichoke are a few things you must try.

The architecture of this restaurant, which is located at 68A Tran Hung Dao Street in Hoan Kiem District and has ornate arches and red bricks evocative of Champa temples, captures the attention of onlookers.

With premium ingredients like truffle mushrooms, Chay Co Dam provides both short and long set dinners for VND680,000 ($28) and VND880,000 ($36.50) every set.

3. Uu Dam Chay 

Uu Dam Chay became well-known for its stunning surroundings, convenient location, and delectable cuisine. The eatery moved from Hang Bai Street to 55 Nguyen Du Street in the Hoan Kiem District in early 2022, but it kept its distinctive northern architectural features, including as pillars, yin and yang tiled roofs, and Buddhist-inspired accents.

In addition to hot pot selections costing more than VND300,000 each pot, Uu Dam Chay provides à la carte eating with rates ranging from VND60,000 to VND200,000 ($2.50 to $8.30) per dish.
