Xin Chào! Welcome to Top Restaurants by Trip Advisor!
My name is Hoang Duong, my food journey started when I was a young boy living in the village. My Vietnamese food passion was ingrained when I was a child and watched my father preparing my family meals. My father was a master in the kitchen and he instilled in me the importance of using fresh ingredients when cooking the family meals.
As I traveled down the road to where I am now, I kept building knowledge and authentic cuisine recipes learnt from my father previously. I had a belief that whilst freshness of ingredients was a core key, another key to deliver dishes with full of flavor was to use only the best local produce. My influence makes the seasonality of produce the most important aspect of the menu here at Duong’s Restaurants, this is the reason why the menu often continues to evolve in line with the availability of produce.
My passion, hard-working and ability to be a good chef were showcased on both Top Chef Vietnam and Ironchef Vietnam competitions. I was one of 16 chefs to be invited to Top Chef Vietnam in 2014 where I finished at the 4th position. My showcase at Top Chef helps me to being sought out as a mentor for younger Vietnamese chefs. I also travel around Vietnam to provide advices to many Vietnamese restaurants and chefs, both young and old. This is one of the aspects that I like most when I am working as a mentor. Because I can help others and to enhance the flavours and variety in Vietnamese food.

I am proud to launch Duong’s Restaurants as my first solo venture and the first leg of my journey and vision. The 1st one is in Hanoi – Duong restaurant in Ngo Huyen street then the one in Ma May street marked as my 2nd Duong’s restaurant in Hanoi. Lately, the 3rd Duong’s restaurant is proudly opening in Ho Chi Minh City. I am honoured to share this journey with my family, friends and most importantly, with you – our beloved customers. I hope you will enjoy the journey that I am going to take you on where I’ll beautifully present you a mix of traditional Vietnamese dishes with Vietnamese / French fusion dishes.

Top notch food experience! – Siri H from TRIPADVISOR
This is probably one of the best restaurants in the world, certainly the best one that we have been to! The food, the service and the overall program of the evening was amazing! This restaurant served both Vietnamese food and other Asian style dishes for both carnivores, pescatarians and vegetarians.
The presentation and the flavour of the food was some of the best that we have ever experienced in the world. Every dish was presented as a piece of art and tasted delicious. We had the Australian steak and it was cooked perfectly and presented with the most beautiful truffle sauce and accompanying vegetables. This steak was the best one that we have ever had. The Chef’s spring rolls were not just spring rolls as you’d imagine them. Each one were different and they had their own accompanying sauce. Even the mojito was one of the best mojitos I have ever had.
The service of the restaurant was outstanding. We were first greeted by the door by the waitress Wendy, who kindly explained the concept of the restaurant and the overview of the food. Then we were seated by the waiter Vodka who gave us a menu and and some fresh towels before the food and the drinks. After the towels we were given a small pre-starter meal and after the entire meal we were given a refreshing ginger tea. Vodka served us all evening, and he explained every dish in detail and was pleasant and helpful throughout our entire food-journey.
I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who visits Hanoi! If you don’t go, you are missing out on an incredible food-journey. We will 100% be back!!
Excellent service, excellent food – Christopherharte from TRIPADVISOR
The outstanding reviews are justified for the lovely restaurant. It is very tourist friendly with very attentive staff. It blends the best of Western and Asian politeness. The menu is varied and caters for all with some western dishes available. The traditional set menu for 380,000 VND was a feast for the senses. Would definitely go again.
Best restaurant experience in Hanoi 3 Excellent food and staff! – Jen K from TRIPADVISOR
We only got to stay in Hanoi for four days, but were blown away by the food and wonderful staff and service at Duong 2. We cannot rate this place highly enough! The food is varied, tasty and delicate, and was worth every dollar spent.
(We ordered the three types of spring rolls, the pancake (a must-try!), bun cha and a dish with grilled fish. All of these were absolutely splendid). When we come back to Hanoi there is no doubt in our minds that we’ll have to revisit Duong 2!
