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.

Excellent food - perfect for groups, as something to suit everyone. Can be quite busy and noisy, but that adds to the atmosphere.

Service was prompt but not too intrusive. All of the dishes we ordered were perfect and served in a sensible order.
the pork belly stood out

We went here with some friends and decided to go for the set menu. At $55 per head for five courses, we thought this was excellent value when taking into account the separate course prices. The downsides to this were the limitation on what you could have (you have to select one starter and one of dish 3 to share between you but can choose your own dessert and you have all the mains between you) and that there has to be at east 4 of you. Anyway, we were very pleased with it. Really nice and enough of it without there being too much. We would be happy to return on a similar occasion in the future.

Had heard loads about this place so decided to ignore my dislike of the 'no booking just turn up policy' - staff were great I have to say but I was disappointed overall. Having visited Vietnam I still dream about the amazing food I encountered but this was nothing like it. To be fair the soft shell crab with tamarind sauce was ok but the tiger prawns were bland and a real punish. The waiter warned me that the sauce that came with the prawns was very hot but I found it more like tomato sauce mixed with mayo. Yergh. Sharpen up guys! Throwing some fresh herbs and chillies on the dishes would have made all the difference.
