Description: Since 1994, The REAL Kangaroo Cafe (TM) has been providing great food, drinks & reasonably priced tours for singles, couples, families & small groups. At the Real Kangaroo Cafe (TM) we serve Vietnamese, Vegetarian & Western food & all at local prices. Our famous Hamburgers, Mugs (not eye baths) of Tea & Coffee (with real milk too) & the coldest beer in Viet Nam have always proven to be popular with our guests. We come in for some grief here on TA sometimes but you'll notice that it's always from a new breed of tourist, the ones with no cameras. It's a recent phenomena called astroturfing & we wish there was a lot more done to get rid of these fake posters. The best way to tell a fake post is that they're recently joined, post no pics or videos & almost no real info. You'll find our Mob here at the cafe to be fun, helpful & decent too & we really do look forward to meeting you in Ha Noi.

“Exactly as promised- great burger and cold beer”

Ate here tonight and it was great.
Just be aware that the 'fake' kangaroo cafe is more visible from the street. The real deal is downstairs from a big hotel.
Portion size was big, beer was cold and service was friendly. Any Aussie (or slightly confused Pom like me) looking for a break from Asian cuisine should eat here.

“Nice Vibe, small and quaint cafe but the Veggie Burger lacked any flavor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Food was a bit dull, perhaps caught the cook on a bad day? Either way the vibe was nice, customer service was extraodinary and the portion was very good. Just wished it had a little flavor to the veggie burger.

“Great!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Thanks to this cafe we could not just enjoy great diner and lunch also, but we traveled with them to HaLong bay for 3 day.
Their Australian Hamburger is just great!
The owner is Australian and maybe due to this fact it is so well managed.

“Respite from the chaos that is Hanoi with great food, service and a welcoming atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I discovered the Kangaroo Cafe in Hanoi Vietnam . What a great team of people. Nothing we requested was any trouble and the food is great and very affordable. There is great ambience and genuine Australian cuisine. My wife and I returned a number of times before we left Vietnam. This is the only place you can get everything from Vegemite to fresh milk and amazing hamburgers in Hanoi. I am sure a visit to the Kangaroo Cafe will increasingly become a bucket list item for international travellers.

If your wanting a good western meal Kangaroo Cafe is good. Chicken Snitzels and Burgers are great and the servings are good sizes too. Friendly staff.
