The food street is open every day, but especially on weekends (from 6 pm on Friday to midnight on Sunday), vehicles will be banned on Ngu Xa and Nguyen Khac Hieu streets.

The night food street area is expected to contribute to promoting the image of Hanoi as a “safe-friendly-quality-attractive’ destination.

Ba Dinh District will continue to adjust and perfect the plans, rules and regulations, to make the Dao Ngoc Ngu Xa night food street become an attractive destination for the capital citizens and visitors.

Dao Ngoc Ngu Xa (an ancient folk name) covers an area of about 4.5 hectares located on the surface of Truc Bach lake.

In the past, Ngu Xa village was located to the west of Thang Long citadel and was famous for the traditional bronze casting handicraft. Due to the urbanisation development and many historical ups and downs, the craft has not been popular.

Later, Ngu Xa became famous for the many unique street foods of Hanoi.
