We had dinner at Cafe Hanoi just last week. The restaurant is very well decorated and it has an intimate and relaxed feel to it! The waiters were really nice, explained all the dishes carefully and gave us some suggestions. The food is good, not to strong. We were hoping it would be a little different and maybe a bit... More

Cafe Hanoi for our second time doesn't disappoint. We are greeted by not one but two friendly maitre de. They quickly gesture us to two tall chairs at the bar directly opposite the open kitchen. You are literally making eye contact with the Head Chef at the pass. Our American waitress was happy to chat and offer menu advice which... More

This was amazing food. We ordered 5-6 dishes to share, all of them were amazing. The shaking beef is was to die for. Walked away full and happy.

One of the best restaurants in Auckland is Cafe Hanoi in the Britomart district. It looks quite unprepossessing externally but has plenty of atmosphere inside. The food is genuine Vietnamese with an excellent street food section and good balance on the menu between traditional favourites and changing dishes.The idea is to have a selection of dishes and share them. I... More

Called in here not knowing what to expect. So glad we did, food was great. A bit more up market than normal vietnamese restaurants, but worth it as the good was also better.

The dishes are small and designed to share. Four of us were dining and we had a great selection of food to choose from with both vegetarians and meat eaters well catered for. Flavours are modern Vietnamese and superbly cooked. This is complemented with a good selection of wine and beer. Thoroughly recommended

Excellent food cooked to perfection and an equally excellent staff, very accommodating and friendly while being totally professional. Had the scallops the were both tasty and cooked to perfection. Could not fault. Would happily travel back to NZ to eat there.

Went as a table of 3 and 2/3 had the same menu, the other had different wording. This would have been ok if it weren't for the fact that the different menu wording, gave off different connotations as to what we should expect from our meals. An example is, in one menu the first page was labelled "Sharing plates" and... More
