Delicious food and great service.

I went to cafe Hanoi for my birthday with a big group of friends. I called in advance to book but they don't take bookings for dinner (which is frustrating but is the case with most places in town now...).

We visited for lunch after reading a very positive magazine review of the restaurant, and it totally lived up to expectations. We were seated at the "Chefs table" as we hadn't booked and the restaurant was very full. It was an excellent place to watch the very smooth running and entertaining kitchen. It was hard to choose what to eat... More

This is a favourite little place in Britomart. Great food always good to order some plates and share with friends. Favourites are the crumbed prawns and summer roles. Just like being back in Hanoi.

Lunch today, albeit interrupted by a fire alarm, we were offered a beer for the inconvenience and then charged for it. Overall a bit disappointed with the meal the size seems to have but the price hasn't with quality a bit average compared to our last visit. This included getting part of the order wrong.

Feeling jet lagged and looking for somewhere close to our hotel for a light meal, we happened to come upon Cafe Hanoi. It was busy and buzzing but we luckily got a table. We loved the decor,. Slightly faded, big ceiling lamps, green foliage etc....very reminiscent of Vietnam. But enough of that! The food is really delicious. Caroline, our waitress,... More

We stepped through the rustic door and were greated warmly. The restaurant was getting full quickly and it was only 6:15pm ! We were shown to the bar / seating area and off to a great start. Cafe Hanoi is special. You can watch up close drinks and cocktail being prepared and also the open kitchen where the wonderful dishes... More

Cafe Hanoi is excellent - great tasty food, great service and good wine list with some eclectic wines well priced. Cannot book so that can be an issue. Good value.
