Fresh, Tasty, and Pleasant!

Great range of items on the menu, including many vegetarian choices. Dishes were able to be "customized" to suit your specific needs (e.g., no pork). Friendly, clean, tasty. Liked it so much, we went a couple of times!

After 4 nights eating street food we decided to go upmarket and eat in a restaurant. We had Hanoi Duck and Luc Lac (beef). The Hanoi Duck was fine and the Luc Lac was very tasty. The owners/waiters were pleasant and smiled! Not something we saw much of in Hanoi. The food was hardly any more expensive than on the... More

Noticing the sign out front with the set menu on it, we decided to give this place a try...spring rolls for appetizer, then a chicken dish with 5 spices, steamed rice, all tasty and decent sized portions, for just 69.000 dong! Add the large tiger beer for just 20.000 dong, and you got a winning combination! Very friendly service on... More

I completely agree with the review below - we stumbled across this cafe by accident, like many others we were trawling up and down the streets reading menus. We couldn't go past this cafe as the menu was extensive!! Yes it had some western meals like pizza (I originally was put off by this) but I couldn't go past the... More

My partner and I stumbled across Aubergine Cafe whilst looking for another restaurant (which we never found). What a fortuitous mistake!!! It is a really peaceful place to enjoy delicious food. We live in Hanoi and regularly eat at Aubergine, the food is consistently good. Expect lovely friendly service from all of the staff here. The menu is written in... More

Well the title says it all really. We came across this place when we were feeling peckish and we were not disappointed. Excellent Vietnamese pho at a very reasonable price. Staff friendly and helpful. Left satiated and orientated.

Well contrary to the rave reviews of this cafe, we found the fpod and drinks here just average. The cozy ambience is however to my liking.

I've started going to the Aubergine Cafe about 11 years ago when it was the Hanoi Hot Plate and then changed to one of the Kangaroo Cafes and then to the Aubergine (but was located several door over from its current location). I usually have several meals at the Aubergine during my trips to Hanoi. I particularly like the chicken... More
