Fresh is Best!

I've eaten at Cafe Hanoi twice in the past 3 months and it is always amazing! The use of loads of fresh herbs really makes the dishes standout. The Bun Cha was gorgeously fresh and what I'll be going back for. I also enjoyed the Bánh Xèo crispy traditional pancake. The wait staff were... read more

After the reviews I thought this would be great and there are dishes that re very good. there are also ones that are plain or over salted. Most disappointing was the rice which was over cooked. That was a bit odd as they charge extra. The shrimp bowl and pork ribs are both quite nice. I doubt I will go... More

I went to Cafe Hanoi for lunch with a friend of mine. At first we didn't know where the entrance was because there was only a small red door at the front which was closed. However don't be alarmed, they keep the door close to keep it cosy inside, so just make sure to open the door haha. The service... More

I visited Cafe Hanoi few days ago for a colleague's farewell dinner. The restaurant was styled in a very traditional way with Vietnamese culture. The staffs were really nice and friendly, the food was delicious however the quantity of food wasn't really enough. With an average spending of NZ$35, none of us got even full at the end including 5... More

Cafe Hanoi is consistently a great place to dine. The freshness and flavours as supreme, it's rowdy and I love the plain, character decor. Totally recommend this. The only downside is they do not take reservations for dinner, it is a walk-in policy only. So be sure to get there early if you want a table!

Great food, attentive service, food was awesome, although they didn't have one dish we wanted the waitress recommend one we would like and didn't disappoint. Great range of Vietnamese food which reminds me of eating back in Asia. Try it out

My only criticisms are that you can't book evenings and the service was very fast (so they may not put you off). The food was fabulous, the staff lovely, a great drinks menu, the atmosphere was lovely and fun and we had a great time. I'd definately recommend you visit.

I've been to Cafe Hanoi many times and not once have I been disappointed. Their take on Vietnamese cuisine is fresh, healthy, exciting and very, very tasty. The waiting staff are exceptional. The decor is relaxed and unpretentious - perfect for focussing on the food. Looking forward to my next visit.
