A great find in the waterfront - really good service combined with fantastic food (loved the presentation) It was beautiful walking around the area with the fairy lights on and the music was relaxed and unobtrusive. We shared our dishes and left feeling content and relaxed - the highlight of our trip (made up for our poor choice of accomodation!)... More

This restaurant always seems to be busy and for good reason - it is consistently simply superb. The worst thing about it is too much choice! Luckily the super cool staff are helpful and knowledgeable so will work with you to sort out a delectable visit. The formula here is simple - take the best quality ingredients then prepare and...

Four of us ate there. a great, surprising and interesting combination of ingredients put together well. The old building is interesting with plenty of room between the tables. And the service was great - friendly / attentive but not intrusive. well worth a visit. I'd suggest going early if you want to avoid waiting at the bar for a table... More

Yet another great eating place following the trend of no booking, but we risked going for our team Xmas dinner. Thankfully once we finally got a table the food and service were fabulous. The squid dust is one of my favourites Anywhere!

Great food, great service, beautiful interior. From the somewhat hard to see entrance to the big open kitchen, raw concrete walls, friendly service staff and amazing food, this was definitely one of our best meals in Auckland! Highly recommend it but be aware, we went early in the week and still had to wait for a table, a good sign... More

Outstanding food and service. Our waiter was very helpful in suggesting different foods to try and also recommending the facebook page for places to eat when I'm in Vietnam.

Auckland is not really well known for having nice restaurants (Wellington, New Zealand's capital, is miles ahead in this category). However, a visit to Cafe Hanoi will be somewhat of a game-changer. The service is great and the food is quite simply out of this world. The only setback for visitors is that the cost is rather high but you... More

Hanoi does not accept reservation and mid-week it was still a 30-40 min wait to be seated attesting to the popularity of the place. However, as they will call your mobile phone, one does not have to loiter around for their name to be called. This allowed us to browse around the area and made time pass quicker. Indeed service...

Went for our wedding anniversary dinner. Staff were very friendly and helped us with the order. Their chicken Soup is a must have. Overall food was good.
