KOTO, meaning Know One, Teach One, is a social enterprise providing training opportunities to disadvantaged youth in Vietnam. The restaurant in Hanoi is one of their business models that generates income to support the operational costs of KOTO as a whole, to improve KOTO’s capacity to train more students.
The multi-level restaurant serves as professional platform for KOTO trainees to fine tune their skills in hospitality service and culinary arts, while at the same time providing guests with a warm and charming venue to enjoy fantastic food and service.
KOTO have now opened up a smaller ‘street-food’ restaurant next door to the original one so those on a backpackers budget can still support the work they do. Stop by for an amazing Pho for only 55,000 dong.
