This restaurant is incredible.  Quan An Ngon restaurant  ( 18 Phan Boi Chau, Hoan Kiem Dist,  (04)39428162/63). You get to chose from lots of different little stalls but the bill is consolidated into one. There is meat, seafood, omelettes, vietnamese rolls and lots of other interesting dishes that you can pick with your eyes as everything is on display.

The atmosphere is energetic and the service is very interactive. Here we are getting our pork skewers cut open.
