Just love this place! Excellent staff, super tasty food and awesome value. We keep coming back because consistency IS THE KEY! We chose to celebrate a birthday here with over 20 guests and it was effortless. You must try this place!

Yet again another great meal from the great staff at Cafe Viet. The food as always is fantastic and the staff are always at your service.

Well done team

From the moment we arrived with a bottle of wine in hand and spotting a full fridge of wine and beer ('no worries, we are BYO), to asking about my special dietary requirements (radio and chemotherapy for cancer in my throat, means spicy food is like a grenade and eating out can be a trial) through the presentation of a bill for 9 very hungry people this ranked right up there.
I thought Mangosteen in San Francisco would be a never to be beaten Vietnamese dining experience. Not so (though Mangosteen's minimalist fit-out shaded Cafe Viets - but the big raised table up the back with low, cushioned seating was so comfortable. And even partially deaf old me could hear most conversations.
Magnificent food, great staff and inexpensive. Not an easy combo to find in Auckland.
And all of us are foodies and very, very picky. We all loved it so much we booked for another reunion in Sept.
My faith in restaurants is restored...and in Vietnamese food with freshness, a little zing and masses of herbs.
We ate heaps but still had desserts - the deep-fried banana doughnuts with choc dipping sauce may have been a step too far - but the coconut rice pudding with raspberries will be on the order list next time.
Lunch next time I am in Auckland...

Loved it. Recommend. Dishes were fresh and tasty. We were asked about amount of chili. Minted water came to the table. We'll be back.

Fresh authentic Vietnamese food, served at a reasonable price (20-25 bucks for a main) and with a smile. What more could you ask for? Book in advance or you may be turned away
