Looking for a reasonably priced place to eat we came across Cafe Viet. What a delight. The place was humming on a Saturday night but luckily we got a table (best to book). The staff were really helpful and efficient; the food was fresh and light, every dish was tasty - we couldn't fault any of it. We'll certainly be... More

We are locals and haven't visited Cafe Viet in a long time but it is still as good as always! My daughter and I started with the bang bang prawns and the cafe Viet spring rolls, both were delicious! We chose to both have a small pho for our mains, this was delicious. They nailed the balance of flavours. My... More

Over for the WMG went to trip advisor for a recommendation for a restaurant in our area of Auckland and came across Cafe Viet! Booked in and had a sensational meal. Everyone at our table was very happy with their food.

My wife and I ate here with our daughter and enjoyed our meal. We had the bang bang prawns and the pho which were great. We also had the pork belly hot pot which was really good. The wine was well priced and the meals were great. We didn't wait long and had a good time. This is a good... More

I have been to Cafe Viet several times and have always found the food and the service to be awesome! There is a great selection of both food and beverages and they cater really well to people with a gluten intolerance. The interior is funky and interesting and the staff are very helpful and friendly. The only downside I would... More

Gave this a five star rating mainly due to the service, but the items the two of us tried were very tasty, especially the fried spring rolls wrapped in rice paper rolls. Went early without booking but would probably pay to book as they got busier as the night progressed. They have a range of seating options, including a large... More

From making the reservation, to arrival, to food, to paying: super friendly. The food was super yummie. Great meal.

This would have to be the best Vietnamese meal I have had in Auckland to date - and I have had a few! The menu has rather different options, ls of seafood and vegetarian as well as the usual meat based dishes. It made it hard to decide what to have without over eating. Bang Bang Prawns are a must!...

Our online booking request for a quiet table received a personal and friendly answer and from then on everything was fabulous. We two Grey Lynners took a Wellington foodie friend and shared all our plates. We'd remembered the special Cafe Viet's Spring Rolls - they were still amazing and our waitress Bell was totally unfazed and helpful with all our... More

Haven't been here for awhile so was really looking forward to the great food and atmosphere. While I wasn't completely disappointed in the food it, like the overall feel of the place, lacked the zest of previous visits. Surprisingly for a Friday night there were many empty tables that stayed that way all evening, which added to my sense that... More
