Description: Café Hanoi is a modern Vietnamese restaurant housed within a heritage warehouse space in Britomart, the city’s oldest commercial district. The restaurant reflects our passion and respect for Vietnamese food and culture. Our menu offers authentic Hanoian street food that has made the city world famous, and other more modern dishes that pair traditional Northern Vietnamese cooking techniques with the best of New Zealand produce. We are very careful to choose ingredients that have been sourced with a deep respect for the environment.

Food to die for, we loved the ambience and simple yet delicious meals on offer here at Cafe Hanoi. We did have to wait an hour for a table but that was expected and well worth it - and so reasonable! I have recently been to Vietnam and the food is extremely authentic at Cafe Hanoi.

Had a few dishes. Highlight was the chicken thighs with kaffir lime, lemongrass, ginger and okra. We also enjoyed the squid with tomato, leek, ginger and dill. Not cheap, but high quality and very good service. We sat at the chef's table with a view of the kitchen. Good fun.

Loved this place. Décor was great. Drinks were interesting lots on offer. Menu was a little confusing for a first timer but the waiter was really helpful in explaining and then said if we hadn't ordered enough we were welcome to order more and it would come out quickly.

Make sure you get the wontons and summer rolls!! We also had the BBQ pork ribs and Tempura prawns. They were just so tasty and plenty of it! We ordered a vermicelli salad instead of rice and it was great alternative.

I liked that you don't take bookings. We eat early so it wasn't a problem for us to get a table.

Easy with a group and sharing meals, which were just average size. Service pretty good, place seemed pretty busy when we were there on a Saturday night. Meals served in a timely manner. Quite authentic taste. Ok value.

We were here 2-3 years ago and gave Café Hanoi a really good rating. It was just the 2 of us and we sat at the bench. This time it was a table for 4 and we had oversold it to our friends. the standard of food has dropped and to the attitude of the staff.
The food still is fresh and tasty, it just lacks that WOW factor we got a few years ago.
