Japanese-Italian fusion in the form of a pizza. Are you kidding? Well, no, we’re not actually. Pizza 4P’s is already huge in Saigon, winning awards, crazy Trip Advisor ratings and gaining a massive following. Now, courtesy of two Japanese-designed pizza ovens, the most unusual pizza restaurant in Vietnam has opened in Hanoi.
But with reputation comes interest, and so keen has the Hanoi public been to get their jaws into the salmon sashimi pizza or the chicken teriyaki pizza, or to try the homemade mozzarella, that the place has been fully booked since the day it opened. With pizzas costing between VND140,000 and VND400,000 (depending on whether ingredients need to be imported), and sides going from VND75,000 to VND175,000, it’s no surprise. Prices here are genuinely reasonable.
So, unless you want to wait until the 110-seater second floor opens up (should be this month, we’re told), you’ll probably have to book in advance or turn up and hope for the best. The downstairs area only sits up to 50 people.
Pizza 4P’s is at 24 Ly Quoc Su, Hoan Kiem, Hanoi or online at pizza4ps.com. You can make a reservation by calling 01208 034444
