We struggled a bit with restaurants in Hanoi as they are scattered throughout the centre and we wanted to eat in a restaurant rather than 'street food' sitting on the footpath. So we ended up going to Aubergine twice. Cheap alcohol (unfortunately no Mojitos!) and the Vietnamese food was very good. The beef curry was disappointing as it was more... More

Very delightful food. The fresh spring rolls, grilled aubergine and caramelised tofu were brilliant. We were unable to eat everything so we had a take away boxes! Really friendly staff.

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
