Great for a light meal too

As I was dining alone I took a spot at the chefs table which had a great ocerview of the busy but organised kitchen. Overall a... read more

Fantastic Vietnamese restaurant , up market location and decor. Food is great little pho ga servings means you can get the traditional soup and still have room for more. Absolute star of the night green rice deep fried prawns could eat this all night

We are creatures of habit and living metres from Ponsonby Road and having young children, when we do go out, its always for a quick stroll onto Ponsonby Road. Last night we thought it was time to go further afield so walked to Britomart to eat at Cafe Hanoi. The last time I was here was just after it opened... More

Our visits to Cable Bay are always special. Taking the ferry over to Waiheke and then the 20 minute walk to Cable Bay sets us up for the leisurely afternoon ahead. The food is amazing and we usually choose too many courses because choice is too difficult. The outlook back to Auckland is incredible on a fine day and when... More

Admittedly I am not a Vietnamese food connoisseur but I love food! and Cafe Hanoi gave my taste buds a freakin' food fest with its incredible mix of flavours! My husband thought it was pretty good but didn't feel he could rave about it, but I was most impressed and will definitely be heading back there! It's great to go... More

prefer the real thing in Vietnam, disappointed after good recommendation. We both thought it was okay and nothing to rave about.

Two of us arrived 6.00 pm for an early meal before going to an Saturday evening show. Since they do not take bookings you need to be early to be sure to eat. Before we left they were full and turning people away. Food is interesting (good quality and an interesting variety) and the service was prompt and very helpful... More

Had a great night here in this busy but attentive restaurant. Great service and a huge selection of beautifully presented tasty food. Something for everyone plus a extensive wine list. We will be back.
