Great food, great service, one of the better restaurants I've been to in Auckland. Hard to get a reservation for a reason.

high end vietnamese - awesome to finally get a decent 'drip' coffee in NZ. The prawns in green rice still have me salivating and the pho had me back in Hanoi at the first sniff....!!! cant wait for my next visit

My husband and I dropped in on Friday night on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. We were lucky enough to get seats straight away. The staff were attentive, genuine, and really helpful. Dishes are designed to be shared, and very dish we ordered was tasty, made with fresh ingredients and had a beautiful balance is spice and taste. I... More

Excellent fusion cuisine. Love the casual atmosphere and excellent food. We were treated to exemplarily service, so much so we felt compelled to leave a tip. Pro Tip: (passed along from a real local pro) Go to Cafe Hanoi and request a table, politely decline their invitation to wait at the bar for your table, electing to go across the... More

This is my second visit to Auckland and my second visit to Cafe Hanoi. The food was so delicious and memorable - we had to come back. With a great range of seafood, meat, poultry and vegetarian dishes, small and larger servings. The cocktail and wine list is extensive. In the 'trendy' Britomart area, Cafe Hanoi is a must!

My wife & I recently went to Cafe Hanoi whilst visiting family in Auckland and we loved the experience from start to finish. We went for lunch & upon entering, were greeted with a warm smile and shown to the chef's table which is a long bar seated area in full view of the open kitchen where you become transfixed... More

We have been accustomed to Vietnamese restaurants in Melbourne staffed by Vietnamese. This was an exception but so was the food. very classy. Rather than select off the menu we asked the kitchen to bring what they liked. We liked very much. Our repeat visit a few days later was just as good.

We arrived at Cafe Hanoi early evening and it was very busy, we left a mobile number and told we would be rung with a table in about 20 minutes which meant we didn't have to wait inside the restaurant and we got a phone call as promised and only waited about 5 mins longer. The food was excellent, with... More

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 arrived at cafe Hanoi around 6.30 and put our name down for a table. They staff were extremely helpful... More
