Planned on a quick bite but the food was so good we kept ordering, fresh spring rollls, duck, Asian greens and pancake. All perfect and would order every dish again. Atmosphere and fit out are both outstanding. If there was any negative it would be there where to many waitstaff on so disturbed more than necessary. Otherwise perfect

After trying to decide where to dine on a trip to Auckland we narrowed it down to google Thai inspired food with the help of trip advisor. Love the buzz and ambience of this busy restaurant on a Thursday night. Got a table straight away. Waitress helped us order as first time visitors and checked on us regularly with genuine... More

Went on a Saturday night after arriving from Sydney. The place was packed. Hostess was very accommodating and gave us a call when our table was ready (about 25 minutes). Lots of locals in the place and we chatted up the table next to us. They gave us some other great recommendations for the city. The food was fabulous. We... More

I went here with a group of people and let the staff choose a range of dishes for us to share. The starters where amazing, the prawns were fantastic but the Poerk Wontons with chilled Spinner Crab and Bisque was to die for - if you like seafood you MUST try these!!

It was a very busy night, we didn't have a booking so they sat us at the bar in front of the kitchen. It was the best seat in the house and was such a great experience watching the chefs so busy at work. This is such a great place to dine and have a good time.

Located in Britomart, you can't go wrong with great eating options. However if you love top notch Vietnamese food combined with fast, efficient and super friendly service in a great atmosphere, you must try Cafe Hanoi. NB: there's no pre-bookings for tables, so just turn up and put your name down. The cocktail menu is amazing, so be sure to... More

I came here for dinner twice. The food is nice,a bit expensive. Friendly service but slow. Dried fish salad is reccomended.
