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).

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

Our hotel receptionist recommended this place as somewhere that did good roast duck, and she was definitely right! The staff were friendly and welcoming, and the food was well priced and delicious. Both set menus were great, one with meat and one veggie.
