Name: Pacific Beer Hall
Address: 281 Doi Can, Ba Dinh, Hanoi
Directions: On the north side of Doi Can just around the corner from the Japanese Embassy.
Description: A large outdoor beer hall with a big menu of reasonably priced dishes.
“This place has some of the best food I have eaten in Vietnam. The squid is fantastic as are the pork ribs. Went with a large group and all ordered a variety of food. Everything was very good and the price was insanely cheap for the quality and quantity of food.”
“An all time favorite. Traditional Vietnamese dishes at affordable prices. Staff are attentive except maybe when there is soccer game on and Vietnam is playing. Most of the dishes are good but they can never seem to know how to cook chicken, it’s either overcooked or undercooked.”
“Been here a couple times, and am a fan. The beer is cold and actually really great, not like a lot of the watered down crap around the city. The food is cheap and decent, it’s not five star dining, but it goes well with friends and drinking.
Also, you can buy water jugs (think water coolers) full of beer to take to go, which, as a Canadian, automatically makes this place cool in my eyes.
Anyway, it loses .5 of a star for the server who threw a glass mug at a rat, and .5 of a star because I hate drinking under florescent lights. Will obviously go back often.”
