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!

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.

We had a table for six on a Saturday night. Seeing it was a Saturday night in the busy part of Richmond, we were expecting slower service and a noisy environment but we were pleasant surprised with the quality of service. It was excellent even though the place was busy. The food was also good so all in all, a great night, noise not withstanding.

Excellent food and service. Salt and pepper calamari and betal leaves were stand outs. The staff were lovely. I had heard the cocktails were good here so ordered 3 different kinds but was a bit disappointed with all 3, somewhat bland or bitter and syrupy - not worth the price point. Would go back for food and their good beer selection though.

Great food & ambience...unfortunately although there were ample waiting staff , after each course we had to call out or get up for attention .. very poor compared to the Windsor restaurant in service . StAff were chatting behind the bar , yet no attention nor eye contact were given to our table.

Thanks for the review and the feedback regarding your recent experience. It's great to hear you loved the venue and offering but not great to hear you didn't experience the top notch service we generally pride ourselves on. We'll be sure to follow this up with management to ensure our high levels of service are being upheld. We'd love for you to come in and give us another go! So hopefully we'll see you again soon for a bowl of pho! Best, HHNQ Team

This is the 3rd time we have eaten at Hanoi Hannah and it did not disappoint. The food is delicious, the service is great and we will definitely go there again. A couple of my favorites are the stick ribs for entree, the wagyu beef and the port hock.

Great food and vibe. Actually, the food was really delicious and I will be back for the food without question. The pork hock was an absolute star dish. Only one thing that let my experience down was that I got frustrated that we paid for the bottomless brunch 2 hour drinks package and I was often left with an empty drink and no wait person in sight. A few times we had to flag down someone else to follow up the drinks order we had already put in.

Our get togetehr luncheon turned out to be a wonderful expereince. The staff ensuredthat all our needs were met with friendliness, unintrusive, obliging and helpful with advice of what items to choose from the menu which, although not extensive, was comprehensive and uthentic (from our memories of our Vietnamese holidays. Overall an expereince that said " we';; be back soon".

We absolutely adored every dish we ordered. We had probably 12 dishes to share amongst 7 of us, (including small, med, large and dessert dishes) and all were delicious.
The standouts included the Kingfish sashimi, coconut poached chicken salad, fried whole baby snapper and the coconut sago dessert. It was my mums birthday and they even accommodated a candle on her dessert.
I will definitely be returning! Can’t recommend it highly enough!

I would highly recommend HHNQ to friends -and have done! - having dined there a number of times already, but I’m not sure I could recommend the ‘Yum Cha... Kind Of’ dining experience we had yesterday.

Booking was from 12:00 - 14:00, so you might reasonably expect food to flow between 12:00 and, at the very earliest, 13:45, allowing diners to finish up by 14:00.

While food - and, I hasten to add, delicious food - came steadily from the kitchen from about 12:15, our table of two were not served any food from 12:50-13:20, at which time we were offered a menu to see if there was anything we’d like to order from there. Not the experience we were expecting. Given that it’s pay-per-plate, it’s not that we felt ripped off by the lack of food. Rather there simply wasn’t as much food to enjoy as we’d hoped. I do wish to reiterate, what we ate was delicious!

By way of market research for HHNQ, I would happily pay twice what we paid yesterday for food (approx. $25/head) for the full two-hour dining experience. And I will happily return to order a la carte from any / all of your stores. I just found the ‘Yum Cha... Kind Of’ experience to be a bit confused and clumsy, and not at all what I’ve come to expect whenever I’ve eaten at your restaurants.

Initial service was good. However we waited almost two hours between entree and mains and the drinks ordered were never brought to the table. You could tell the wait staff were under the pump, but they were very rude and not at all helpful. Will never go there again, there are too many places with great service and food to bother with places like this. Very disappointed.
