Cafe Hanoi restaurant review

Metro Top 50 2018 Britomart restaurant Cafe Hanoi offers a contemporary northern Vietnamese menu.

Chatter bounces off the walls of this popular dining room in one of the first restaurants to make its home in Britomart’s fashionable downtown dining precinct. The industrial, airy space still looks as current as it did on opening day, and Krishna Botica, now in her 30th year on Auckland’s hospo circuit, is always the consummate host. The contemporary northern Vietnamese menu features fresh, stimulating dishes beautifully executed by chef Nathan Houpapa who transforms simple ingredients with generous handfuls of fragrant herbs, perfumed aromatics and fiery chilli. The tea menu is a winner.

What it offers Shared-plate options / Fixed-price meals / Good for vegetarians / Free-range chicken and/or pork / Takes large groups / Private room for up to 30 guests / Craft beer selection / Good for kids
A favourite dish Wild-caught Queensland black tiger prawns with hot and sour tamarind, shredded green papaya and fresh herbs.
