All the food we ate in Hanoi was excellent, but Aubergine cafe really was the highlight. We had fresh DIY spring rolls to start, which were some of the best I've eaten in my month in Vietnam. To follow we had an aubergine dish and tofu with sesame (which we initially thought was a little sweet but when you ate... More

I had dinner here tonight. Ordered the fried vegetable spring rolls and chicken with 5 tastes as my main. Even though they were busy, having to ask people to come back later, I did not have to wait long before my spring rolls arrived. No sooner had I started on my spring rolls my main meal appeared. But this sort... More

Just like the reviews said the food is really really good! I highly recommend the grilled squid. It's actually served in some kind of light sauce (sate maybe) just delicious. We also had the fried eggplant with sesame, quite unique and very good. I think it's a course that should be shared, it's a lot of eggplant for 1 person.... More

This place has a huge menu to choose from. Breakfast, lunch or dinner - meat, veggie og vegan - you should find something you like. I enjoyed the atmosphere, the staff and the food. I got a really tasty fruit juice and stirred veggies. Great place to eat, highly recommended.

We ate at the aubergine cafe on a recent trip to Hanoi and it was an excellent experience. Friendly helpful staff who spoke good English and very good food. The fried eggplant was phenomenal and the rest of the meal great also. Highly recommended.

Visited late night at 1030 the day earlier. They were almost closed and our hosts asked us to visit the next day. Since we had heard a lot about this place, we decided to pay another visit and it was totally worth it. First thing to mention is their fresh spring rolls. They were exquisite and you get to make...

My boyfriend and I visited on our second night of a week in Hanoi and went back every day after! We loved it. The crispy pork is delicious, pumpkin soup lovely and the fruit juice is so fresh! Lovely people running the place too and always friendly!

Need I say more! Went there first with friends who live here part of the year and thoroughly enjoyed it. Then went back with family and it was just as good. Hanoi beer is less that £1 per pint bottle and the Dalat (Vietnamese) wine is very drinkable. The fresh spring rolls are delicious, as is the five spice chicken,... More

After reading reviews I decided to visit here in my first night. I wasn't disappointed at all. It was a great menu for vegetarians, I had 3 dishes, and cocktail and watermelon juice, all for under £10. So tasty. Spring rolls are lovely. Nice atmosphere too.
