Such a wonderful night at Cafe Hanoi. The food is absolutely amazing. The service is exceptional. The atmosphere was perfect. Our waiter, Harry, was fantastic. So lovely, knows his product, and is extremely professional. I hope the company realise what a find they have in him. Can't complain about a thing. Minced beef balls are unbelievably tasty!!

Most of the dishes we ordered were excellent - the eggplant and the beans with pork were surprisingly unseasoned and not that tasty. Very good service and our waiter was very helpful in bringing samples of wine to taste before we ordered a bottle, Would go back.

Had a nice solo dinner at Cafe Hanoi, sitting at the bar. The wait staff were helpful, friendly and attentive. The suggested a nice combination of plates. In addition to the small plate options, they prepare many of the larger courses as half-portions, as well. This allowed me to try four different options. The pork belly was tender and flavorful....

The food was passable but not at all vietnamese in style or flavour, and about triple the price for a small dish of a typical asian dish at nearby, authentic restaurants. Queensland prawns? Rutherglen muscat? More like Cafe Aussie...

We had read about this restaurant and weren't disappointed. From arrival the service was excellent. The waiter eagerly recommended items on the menu and kept our drinks topped up. Despite being incredibly busy, the food came out in a timely manner and was as promised. A little expensive, but a delicious meal in a place with a cosy atmosphere. Excellent!
