Upon arriving, we were warmly greeted and seated amidst a very busy sea of patrons with a vibrant lively atmosphere.
The restaurant interior is very stylish with industrially exposed brick, sleek black tables, tropical plants and a ceiling lined with Asian globe paper lanterns.
Viewing the menu, it's exciting to explore dishes that express modern cuisine to old world Vietnamese, so we're had to try dishes from each.
I was most impressed with our food journey starting with prawn cakes and summer rolls to spicy squid pineapple and poached chicken green papaya salads. We finished off with prawn and pork belly Vietnamese pancake lettuce rolls and baked whole snapper.
The cuisine was exquisite and the beverages were equally satisfying. Service was impeccable and we eagerly await our next dining experience in Cafe Hanoi! Highly recommended with distinction!
Cafe Hanoi has it all: great atmosphere, top-notch service, and delicious food. I'd also highly recommend this place for anyone with gluten allergies, as the staff and kitchen is very accommodating, and I was able to eat virtually everything on the menu despite my dietary restrictions. I'd particularly recommend the soft-shell crab and squid cakes. Our waitress, Nga, was friendly,...
One of the best Viernamese fusion style restaurants I've been to in Auckland. Fresh food with real flavour, and traditionally cooked too. Excellent service - cannot fault it! Prices pretty reasonable too (around $20 a main) when you consider the overall package. Centrally located right near Britomart Train Station. A great place to eat, perfect for dinner before a show at Vector Arena, or before hitting nearby nightclubs like the Britomart Country Club.
Have been here couple of time, always busy but always enjoyed nice clean flavour and attentive service. You need to see which part of the menu you are ordering from since the food from the top part are more like entree compared to those listed at the back are more generous in portion size.
Fantastic service here. They don't take bookings but if there's a wait you can grab a drink at the bar or downstairs in the Parlour Room. The food is consistently great and I will be going back just for the Rhubarbita cocktail....mint infused gin and rhubarb with liquid meringue/vanilla liqueur on the top... it's like a desert and cocktail in one! Highly recommended.
