Please note, guests are allocated 1.5hrs for dining. DINNER ONLY groups of 8 and above, are required to dine on our $57pp All In menu.

Hanoi Hannah New Quarter may be the new kid on the block, but she definitely doesn't sit in the shadows of her older sisters. Perched on the corner of Lennox and Swan she flirts on the edges of Melbourne’s sporting precinct. The dynamic facade, decked out with large open windows and subtle ambient lighting draws you in. The more refined, fresh interior of New Quarter lets you know you’re in for a treat however she still carries the same swagger as her older siblings, pumping good time tunes and laid-back vibes.

New quarter steps it up yet another notch with her extensive menu riddled with both the new and old. The kitchen is killing it with new bangers like the Pho Cuon, Pork Hock and China Town Fried Rice. Whilst the bar dominates with a seriously sassy cocktail list. Don’t worry, we’re still nailing your old favourites too!

Food was almost ok. Pho wasn't hot enough to even partially cook the beef, no chilli served with it and I asked for extra lemon and fish sauce. Papaya salad had no chilli either. Spring rolls were good. Eaten in Vietnam and Springvale and Chinatown in city and Vietnamese food was way tastier.
It was a busy night due to concerts in city and many diners turned away. $92 for 2 is extremely over priced for non authentic Vietnamese food that wasn't up to scratch.
The music was deafening, staff will not swop tables even if you're way early for your booking and there is noone else there and the speaker is above your head. On asking to move the response was to turn the music down and refuse and a while later it was turned right up again. Conversation was impossible.
Won't be back ever and fail to understand the popularity, must be the "trendiness"

Delicious food but music is too loud to be able to enjoy a conversation over dinner. It would be so much better if the music was a touch quieter and we could hear each other talk without yelling. Note, I am only 30 years old and I’m saying this.

Great place but very noisy so wouldn’t recommend as a large group to anyone.
We had a booking for 8 and it was hard to hear everyone. Food and service were great. Will visit again but as a smaller group next time.

Tasty food, although the plain rice was mushy and inedible!!!!! Everything else was yum especially the ceviche. The only problem is the noise and the hustle and bustle. We couldn’t hear the people on the other side of our table. We couldn’t wait to leave so we got dessert elsewhere.

The food was fine however I felt let down by the service. The service staff were hovering around us with the bill and put it on the table before we had finished dessert. We finished eating then noticed a staff member literally hovering above us not saying anything. We asked him if he wanted us to pay and he said yes so we did. The staff then continued to hover to the point that we felt so awkward we felt pressured to leave. At the same time, there were other free tables so it was confusing as to why we were being pressured at all.

If Hanoi Hannah needed the table, the staff should have just said something instead of silently pressuring guests to leave. It was really uncomfortable to the point we don’t want to go back. It wouldn’t have been an issue at all if any of the staff had just been upfront about this on the night. Not well managed at all.

Had a great girls night out on Friday 6 December at Hanoi Hannah. Our waitress was fabulous and friendly and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food. Music a bit loud for 6-8pm sitting but the waitress offered to turn in down so we could comfortably talk. Thanks

Food was great however the 'all in' menu was pricey. The restaurant also called me prior to our booking to check for requests/dietaries and I mentioned that we didn't want too much seafood as one person doesn't eat it - and then the main course was two whole fish.

Great customer service and staff understanding of the menus both food and drinks. Entree of duck rice paper rolls and chicken and lemongrass rice paper rolls were amazing. Vietnamese beef salad was delicious. So many flavours. And the sizzling wage beef just melted in your mouth. Both cocktails ordered were amazing. They were the pineapple lagerita and the coffee rum monte. Will be back for sure.

Food is great, but service slow to come. However, when our waiter did appear, he was entertaining and knowledgeable. A good spot for a group. We had 7 in our party and allowed us to share a range of dishes. Gluten free was well catered for. I’d definitely recommended HH.

Absolutely magnificent food, service and ambience Our friends, who have not experienced this type of food before, just raved about the level of quality and flavours. Your staff should be commended on their friendliness and menu knowledge. Although a little pricey, the "all in" is the way to go. Got to experience flavours and food I might not necessarily try off the menu. Thank you.

We loved the quality of the food, the staff were very professional although became less attentive as the evening progressed and our drinks orders weren't taken. The restaurant quickly became very loud so would suggest some noise diminishing baffles be installed. Overall though our table of 7 people absolutely loved the experience. Thank you Hanoi Hannah, we will be returning for another feast soon.
