Saigon’s most popular pizza - Japanese owned 4P’s - has opened in Hanoi’s Old Quarter - not far from St Joseph’s Cathedral.

The Pizza 4P’s story began in Saigon in 2011. Less than a year later, the city’s Japanese owned pizza joint was one of the most popular restaurants in town - packed most nights.

Now 4P’s is sharing its culinary delights in Hanoi.

This is no ordinary pizza place.

4P’s adds a distinctly Japanese twist to the pizza experience - without straying too far from the familiar Italian roots. There's a good selection of pasta, salads and craft beer as well.

The downtown Hanoi space, over two levels, is huge, and features an open kitchen and a mix of small tables and communal dining. It’s been busy whenever we’ve visited - though we haven’t needed to book (unlike in Saigon).

4P’s Hanoi lacks some of the intimacy of the original venue in Saigon - but nobody seems to mind.

Founder Masuko ditched his job investing in Vietnam’s tech sector to set up Pizza 4P’s - he’s a man passionate about his cheese too. He’s spent years developing a Vietnam-sourced version of cheese that’s the perfect fit for his menu. It comes from the 4P’s Japanese managed dairy cattle farm in the central highlands town of Dalat. The burrata is a delight.

The 4P’s farm now supplies cheese to hotels and restaurants across the country. It’s fresh - free of additives and preservatives.

If you’re looking for a unique pizza  experience in Hanoi - check out 4P’s.
