Get ready for a tight squeeze. Le Drapeau de la Fidelité, a simple and characterful little hole run by a former philosophy professor from Vietnam, is as small as it is inexpensive – but then this only adds to the conviviality. And what prices: they’ve barely gone up in the restaurant’s 30-odd-year history, allowing you to indulge in a beer for €1.50, and a range of unpretentious Vietnamese dishes for €6 (€5 for students). Mr Quan, the owner, lets his eccentricities shine through in the décor: tracts on metaphysics plastered over the walls, the old State of Vietnam flag perched over the bar, French pop songs from the ‘80s playing in the loo… It’s a hoot, and the cheapest in the capital to boot. But take note: the kitchen closes at 8.30pm, the venue at 10pm.

The owner only speaks french

Smell of fried food inside - and on your clothes

Dishes are not freshly made but are reheated in the microwave...


An awesome tiny bar, perfect for students when they leave school, or to have the first drinks of a long night with friends.
