Hanoi Cafe

Sorry, but this restaurant is the worst Vietnamese restaurant I've ever been to. I am an Aussie of Vietnamese origins, and I have eaten in a lot of Vietnamese restaurants in many parts of the world, and of course, also at home because of mum's cooking. I ordered pho and let me tell you that I have never EVER tasted such bland pho - it shouldn't even be called pho!! I had to ask for bean shoots and sage (it should be a crime to not eat pho with bean shoots and sage) otherwise they didn't offer me those. My husband ordered bun bo hue, which tasted exactly the same as my pho - bland. At first I thought they had given him the wrong dish because it looked exactly like mine!

We shouldn't have walked into the restaurant at all, because it was not very busy when we went on a Friday night.

Total waste of money.
