New Day is living proof that you don't have to spend top dollar nor seek out a sophisticated ambience in order to enjoy delicious food in Hanoi, or anywhere in Vietnam for that matter. This unassuming place has plastic tablecloths and no fancy artwork on the walls, but the food is excellent. There's an extensive menu of classic Vietnamese, but staff also invite diners to take a look at prepared dishes in the kitchen—a great idea for anyone unfamiliar with Vietnamese fare. It's so popular that it's packed with locals and tourists alike at peak eating hours, but staff will always try to find a spot to squeeze you in.
