Great food, friendly service, inexpensive

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... read 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

(Which us aussies like!). Large servings at low prices & we enjoyed our dinner last night so much, we went back today for lunch. They... 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

Maybe we didn't order the same dishes as those who rave about this place..... There is always that possibility. We thought it was only average and the atmosphere and service weren't compensating factors. I'd say this is fast, cheap, functional eat and probably pretty clean.

Went to this cafe as had some good reviews on trip advisor. Friendly staff, clean place. But the food was below expectations. We found it mediocre, nothing special. We ordered the eggplant dish which was too sweet for our taste. Perky Possum
