Great for sharing

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.

Have only eaten at this restaurant a couple of times, would love to go there more but would highly recommend if you like this kind of food.

During a short visit to Auckland a fortnight ago, we headed to Cafe Hanoi as we were looking for a light but tasty dinner close to our hotel after a busy day in the city. We saw the amazing reviews on Trip Advisor and knew we had to check Cafe Hanoi out. The menu to vast and the food and... More

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.

3 girl friends and I enjoyed a hastily put together dinner catch up at Cafe Hanoi. We got there early (around 6.15pm) which was just in time to secure the last free table so didn't have to wait at the bar. 30 mins later and the place was packed. Food was traditional style Vietnamese that took me back to the... More

Great place, cool decor great food. Went for a quick meal premgoing to the writers festival, asked the waiter to chose for us as we hadn't been before. Rather low lighting until the lit the candles, but all contributed to the atmosphere. Really busy, so be early or late.

It pays to book even for lunch, but a short wait and we got a great corner table by the window. The atmosphere is really good, as was the service and the all important food! Highly recommend the spare ribs, the spices were great but if you plan on ordering this dish suggest you take a wet flannel! The won... More

Having been to Vietnam and Hanoi in particular recently, I was so excited to try the food and see if it tasted as good as the real thing- and it definitely didn't disappoint! We stuck to the Old Quarter menu as this was more traditional and what we were used to. Everyone has to try the Pho soup,chicken papaya salad,... More

The service was so friendly that I had to say goodbye to the bar staff and our waitress. Food was the best we've had in NZ since we moved here 1 year ago from Australia. Ionly in Auckland for 4 days but will go back before we leave.
