Arrived in Auckland and needed late dinner during the Christmas period. I was struggling to find a place that was open and stumbled on Cafe Hanoi. I would recommend this to anyone. The maitre d' put is at a bar which was crowded, which normally I would have enjoyed. However, given that I had been on a really busy trip... More

I have been to Cafe Hanoi a few times - although only for lunch never for dinner. As a lunch time place it is busy, vibrant and the food is tasty enough. I have been to Vietnam many times over the years as well and although the food is tasty and "Vietnamesey" it is not quite genuine Vietnamese cuisine.

Cafe Hanoi provides a taste of Hanoi, literally a taste, while leaving one with the feeling of having been taken for in the back streets of Hanoi. While the food was some of the better northern Vietnamese I've encountered outside of Hanoi, it simply does not commensurate with the outlandish prices being charged. *** Please also note that there appear...

This establishment is well publicised and its popularity is evident by the number of lunchtime customers. Book to avoid disappointment. The food is good with prompt and efficient service. The frenetic activity in the kitchen is in full view (always reassuring). The warehouse style decor works and would not be out of place in Hanoi itself.

We went there with my friend for our last dinner in NZ, we were done with local food. ! Excellent place, looking like a saloon ! very good cocktails and nice trendy ambiance. I would definitely recommend the place for a nice evening with friends.

It's been a long time since our last date night. So, child-free and relatively excited about that, we jumped on the ferry from Waiheke and headed into town. We decided on Hanoi as it's close to the ferry - we certainly made the right decision. The place was busy when we arrived, but the maitre'd kindly advised us to grab... More

Again we have been blown away with the quality of the service and food. Recommend the chicken thighs, king prawns, duck and lemongrass beef. We ordered 5 dishes between the three of us. Perfect amount. The service was excellent. 10/10. Phoebe our waiter was kind, clever and just new everything about anything. Dad has been here for the past 3... More

There was nothing not to love here. No reservations taken for dinner so got there early, which gave time to consult the relatively small but exciting wine list. Every morsel was delicious, seafood a standout. Hard to know what was best, the fish and squid cakes were perfect, spring rolls fine, caramelized beef was addictive, whole baked snapper was out...
