We were lucky to find a table at Cafe Hanoi but it was early. We shared Sweet Soy & Black Pepper Tofu (nicely spiced), Cured Pork Skewers with Romaine (the favorite of the night) and Spicey Salad with Poached Chicken--all delicious. Service was prompt and personable. Restrooms downstairs. I would highly recommend.

We arrived in Auckland in the 1st Jan so choice was limited, followed the reviews and ended up here. I have to be honest if you seriously rate the food here you really haven't experienced good Vietnamese cuisine, this was totally average at best.Staff and decor are good but I'm not looking to eat the wall. Its VERY expensive for... More

Hi Danieldmoss, I hope you have been enjoying your stay in Auckland, and I’m glad that good reviews pointed you in our direction. Dining on public holidays in New Zealand often attracts a 15% surcharge – this is charged by many hospitality businesses in order to offset the increased wage costs (up to 250%) incurred by operating on a public...

You need to be a sharing kind of person to really get the most out of this restaurant, as there are so many good dishes to try, and the best thing to do is go with 2 or 3 other people and order all sorts of delicious things and share. I have been there twice for dinner in the past... More

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.
