Great Vietnamese food

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.

A very tasty alternative. Fantastic dishes and I had a really delicious avocado smoothie too. Great location with friendly staff and a really mouth watering menu. My wife and I liked everything and we would recommend this restaurant. Will revisit on next holiday to Auckland for sure.

Extra busy during lunch time! Recommend booking, otherwise like us you can squeeze onto a communal bar seating. Food ok. Very nice fresh spring rolls. Drinks arrived well into eating the main course. Reasonably pricey. Pleasant staff. I'm not sure if I'm a real fan of Vietnamese food.

We had heard good things about this place and we weren't disappointed. Great location and interesting decor compliment the excellent food. The ribs are a must have as are the green papaya salad. The server we had was also superb and gave us some great options. Highly recommended

Second visit and still just as good. Love Vietnam and the food, and this is as near as we can get in NZ. we had summer rolls, shaking beef, eggplant all with lovely fresh herbs. Just wish it was the same price as it was in Hanoi !!!!

The food was really beaufiful, the staff friendly and helpful and the price is excellent. It may not be posh, but we were treated like royalty. A complementary fruit platter completed a really memorable evening. Bring your own wine and your evening will be complete.

Cafe Hanoi is one of my favourite places downtown for pre-show dinners. The experience is consistently good. The wait-staff are helpful, professional and fast. The food is delicious with fresh flavours that explode in ones mouth. The dishes are best shared. The summer roles are a favourite and the biggest challenge of the night is deciding what else to have!

Great atmosphere and good service but food quantity a let down considering the money spent there. Also, Tastewise, I would rate it average at best. It's back to Mekong Baby for me.

They weren't taking reservations for dinner, & why would the given how popular this buzzing place is. From the moment of walking down the street towards to main door we could already smell all the fragrant herbs & spices coming from the kitchen, we knew we were in for an absolute treat, problem was there was only 2 of us...
