Three of us went to Cafe Hanoi for lunch. Nearly walked away as we thought it was closed - an open sign would help. We ordered the hot pot pork belly and a bowl of rice $30. Very nice but the pieces of pork were...More

Finally managed to get into Cafe Hanoi at the 3rd attempt. Beware you may have a long wait. We got there at 6.30pm, so wasn’t fully booked. The wait was so worth it. The food is amazing. We had the squid, prawns, tofu with ginger...More

I was expecting great but I got an average dinner. The restaurant itself has a really good vibe. The service was good. The food was pleasant but could have been so much better. None of us had meat and maybe this could be where they...More

Good Vietnamese restaurants serving authentic food are hard to come by but Cafe Hanoi is one of the best I've ever been to. Prices are very reasonable, food is scrumptious and the atmosphere and staff are great. Would definitely recommend!

Really enjoyed our meal of rice paper rolls, crispy pancake and stir fried greens, but for 3 dishes and 2 beers we thought it was a bit on the expensive side. However the staff were friendly and efficient and the food was very nice.

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.
