Cafe Hanoi

Inner-City Bistro—Modern northern Vietnamese

One of the first restaurants to get us excited about the future of dining in this town continues to offer a buzzy, fun and, most importantly, mouth-watering experience. The contemporary northern Vietnamese food is vibrant, packing a huge flavour punch. Service is warm and efficient, which should come as no surprise given that Hanoi is owned by Auckland hospitality legends Tony McGeorge and Krishna Botica, the team behind Top 50 restaurant Saan and dumpling bar Xuxu. And with ingredients like kombucha, burnt caramel and oolong tea syrup, the first sip of any cocktail from the list always raises a smile. Aside from these very important things, Cafe Hanoi also has one of the most beautiful dining rooms in the city, the bones of the colonial building it has made its home exposed for all to see.

A favourite dish
Bánh xèo, a crispy-edged pancake with sautéed pork belly and shrimp, with nuoc cham, lettuce and fragrant herbs.
