Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We loved this restaurant! The food was so delicious, bright, and well prepared. Our server was very friendly and helpful. They were also very nice to accommodate us when I had accidentally made the reservation for the next evening. My only mild criticism is that...it took a long time for the drinks to arrive. I would definitely go back.More

With dietary needs, dining out can be stressful. At Cafe Hanoi we got good advice from our waitstaff about toppings that could be removed and dishes to avoid to reduce the risk of cross-contamination and then ate four vegan plant-based dishes that were delicious! Great...choices for non-alcoholic drinks too.More

Loved our dinner at Cafe Hanoi. The atmosphere was perfect, we had a lovely table by the windows. The wine list was extensive and the food was amazing. Staff couldn’t have been more helpful or knowledgeable.

We had an excellent quick dinner after work at Cafe Hanoi. The service was quick and friendly. The choice of portion sizes helped us have variety while not having too much food. A great way for my wife and I to finish our work week.

We have been to Cafe Hanoi a few times now and the food is just exceptional, probably the best I'd tasted in ages. It was beautifully presented, there was ample choice and the accompanying service was excellent. The drinks menu was also superb. This all...helps to explain why the restaurant was so busy on a Monday night.More

Have dined here before & on this occasion the food was way below he standard previously. Very small portion sizes & food was cold. Not worth the $172 we had to pay!

Nice vibe. Very good service team. I appreciated that they welcome solo diners and offer half portions of many items so that you can experience the breath of flavors. I was seated at a group dining table and a large group arrived just as I...was finishing. The manager came to me and asked if I would like to be moved to a private table. I thought it was very classy on their part. I was leaving anyway but appreciated the courtesy. As for the food. I had the soft shell crab and the green jackfruit salad. I thought it was tasty and well prepared. Food tasted fresh and flavorful. Having been to Vietnam I felt the food was “inspired by” vs “authentic” but that is fine. A very pleasant meal and I would return.More

I am a regular visitor to Cafe Hanoi and have never had a bad meal, in fact the complete opposite, the food is fantastic as is the wine on offer. The service is also outstanding with staff well trained and very friendly.

What an absolutely specTACular evening of theatre, taste, sights and smells! Sitting at the Chef’s bar, we were treated to a masterclass of rolling rice paper rolls, ogled at the waver- thin slicing of duck prosciutto for the turmeric pancakes and transfixed by the Wizard...of Woks at work in clouds of fragrants and steaming magic. Each morsel exceeded keen anticipation, the wine was thoughtfully edited to create unbelievable alchemy, and the waitstaff were professional, attentive and fun! Yes! HIGHLY recommend, and so very grateful for our wonderful evening!More

Tried the set menu this time and was certainly not disappointed. Way more food than we needed but all very good.
