After reading the reviews, we wanted to eat in this restaurant. It took us a long time to find it, because the location on the map is not correct (so be aware of that). When we finally found it, we were very satisfied. It is a touristic place without any locals, but the vietnamese food is really nice.

Pizza didn't have tomato sauce it seams to come on the side but described differently in menu. Chicken curry was good portion and tasty. Service was slow. It's an alright place, nothing out of the ordinary.

I found the staff friendly and attentive. We ordered the fresh spring rolls which we made ourselves. I was surprised how delicious they were. The garlic aubergine was good but not as good as some reviews suggested and I am still smelling of garlic the next day! Overall a pleasant experience but not extraordinary.

After wondering around Hanoi streets after we arrived, we were hungry, tired and just ready to eat and go to bed. Restaurants were starting to close around 9pm, and we just passed by Aubergine Cafe and decided it looked open enough and reasonably priced. I was really, really happy with the food! Sautéed pork five-spice with vegetables & sautéed eggplant... More

Beautiful fresh food we ate here twice in a row. Really good pho and papaya salad. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Good cheap prices and amazing fresh flavours.

We ate here twice and both times had a lovely meal. It's not the greatest atmosphere but the pho with tofu and vegetables was amazing!

I didn't eat in here but my hotel in the Old Quarter only provided room service and both times I ordered in, it came from Aubergine. The food was terrible. I had a pizza one night - my own fault I know! I just craved Western food and thought a pizza would be ideal. The base was thick and stodgy,... More

We ate here twice - the first time, despite the name, they had run out of aubergines but what we ate was so good we decided we had to go back and try the aubergine dishes and we did. Second time we checked that they had aubergines and made a booking for the table we wanted and the food was... More

Glad we gave this place a go, quick service after wondering in at 8.45pm thinking it may be pretty close to closing time but they were welcoming. We had 4 different dishes, all very flavoursome and distinct. The caramelised tofu with lemongrass and chilli was divine, full of taste, perfect texture and unique. Most pleasing was the perfect mix of... More

The food and staff are excellent. The pizzas, "Chicken, mixed vegetables and cashews", "Fish Stir fry" are good choices.
