Amidst the noisy streets, Anh Tuyet Restaurant, with horizontal lacquered boards, wooden tables and chairs, antique wall fans, paintings of the old quarter and Bat Trang pottery products, has attracted many visitors.

As the seventh generation of a Hanoi family, Tuyet was carefully taught housework by her grandmother and mother since she was very young, from small things like picking vegetables and selecting fresh fish and meat to preparing delicious and beautiful dishes.

Over time, her knowledge and cooking skills have improved gradually. She possessed many recipes that have been highly lauded. Tuyet triumphed over many famous chefs who worked in luxury hotels to win first prize with her roasted honey chicken at a culinary fair held at the Horizon Hotel in Hanoi in 1990. After the event, she decided to open a small restaurant, her contribution to promoting Hanoi’s cuisine.

Following the success of her first restaurant, Anh Tuyet artisan opened her second one at 22 Ma May Street in 2008. It has become a destination for people and visitors to learn more about the capital city’s traditional culinary arts. Since 2002, hundreds of foreign visitors have enjoyed the dishes there. They have been also guided on how to process Vietnam’s traditional food.
