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.

Cambridge locals, been customers for over 4 years for takeaways. First time tried to go for lunch there, one other table of 2 apart from us and we got basically kicked out because we were taking up “too much space” and we had a buggy...with us and it was “a nuisance” to other customers (one table apart from us). The guy had a terrible attitude, no customer service skills, told us to move, complained about the buggy, and that our girls sat at another table (they wouldn’t be staying there for the meal). If you have kids, buggies, wheelchairs, etc don’t bother. I have never encountered such poor reception at a cafe in my life. Shame on you. We will never be back, will never get a takeaway either, and will spread the word.More

Have been to this establishment when it was a food truck, food was good then. It doesn't open Sundays and we have missed a couple of opportunities to get here for lunch. We finally made it a few weeks back (Yeah) and have been back...since had the exact same dish Pho Bo. We love it and my wife would have it everytime we came to Cambridge if she could. Service and prices are good, we have a small dog with us so can sit outside with him which is a bonus. The food is excellent and takes us back to Vietnam when we eat it. We are both looking forward to our next bowl of Pho Bo.More

Best food in Cambridge. Fun buzzing casual vibe. Com Ga Deluxe and the Bun Cha are to die for as are the cocktails, also the best in town. I go here all the time, great value for money.

Bun cha and com ga pretty much the same as when he was in the caravan down the road. Much warmer to eat out now in a full indoor restaurant. Great place great foood reasonably priced for what it is.

Went to Hanoi Boy on a Saturday night. We found that the staff were quite unhelpful and didn’t seem to care, we arrived at 8pm for our booking and ordered food and drinks, when we finished our mains at 9pm we were told that the...kitchen was closed and that we couldn’t get any dessert. This was disappointing as we didn’t get told beforehand that the kitchen would be closed and dessert would not be an option. The mocktail that we ordered was also disappointing, mostly ice and very little of the drink. Not worth it for $10. We mentioned this to a staff member but they didn’t care to rectify or offer an explanation for this. Response was ‘it’s very popular’ However, the food was great, really tasty and good portion sizes.More

As a single woman dining alone, I found myself wedged into a corner of the restaurant with four people placed in close proximity - when there was no one else seated on our side of the restaurant. The tables in this restaurant are really very...close and your staff could think about how they could better mind single diners.More

We visited Hanoi Boys new restaurant in Cambridge after having eaten previously in their food cart. It was a very pleasant visit. Not a massive menu but quite enough. We enjoyed the calamari, spring rolls and the Bun Cha, the three dishes were quite delicious....A pleasant evening out for a very reasonable price. We'll certainly be backMore
