No I would not recommend it for groups of ten or more...I have been there in recent weeks with groups of four or five and we could pick our own dishes and the food was very good...and the service was good then...but the group I went with last Friday I had been before with that group and we chose our own dishes and it was great but this time we were not happy with the banquet ...not considering the potatoes a dish! It was a very limited variety...and the cost was too high at $70 per person considering I had paid the same for more variety with a smaller group...and more wine that other time...also at 9 pm we had no time to finish our dessert before we were asked to leave for the next customers...I think you have lost my friends for future meals there...

I booked a table for 3 online. The booking confirmation said if have a seating time for 2 hours yet when we arrived our seat was right at the front door (during winter is extremely COLD) when I asked for a better table they were hesitant to move us as they said they were expecting a table of 10 in an hour. If I'm confirmed for 2 hours they should let us know that seating is only available AT THE FRONT DOOR. I'm extremely disappointed that the table of 10 took priority over my seating.

Loved the food and the vibe! Good value for money for the quality food youre getting and the Pino Gris on the menu was a delicious pairing for the seafood and veg options.

My only criticism that could make this place better would be the service. After waiting for more than ten minutes unacknowledged for our booking at the door, I was unimpressed when our first interaction was to tell us when we had to be gone by. The experience generally felt rushed - think clearing our mains whilst I was still finishing my last mouth full and then proceeding to ask us for a dessert order twice by two different staff in the following minute. This place is a step up from the churn and burn restaurants surrounding so its nice to not feel like you’re rushed through the experience. I will say though, the staff were all friendly and polite.

Overall, a lovely evening.

I love this place. The omelette is sensational! Everything else is terrific too but don’t go without trying the omelette dish that gets cut up with scissors. Sorry I can’t remember what it’s called.

Our second time at the restaurant, we took friends and decided on the banquet ! It came out fast in the beginning and when we asked the waiter was there any more he didn’t know ... then it tool at least another 40 minutes to have the remained.. one bowl of rice between 7 people ? More food in the banquet for the value would be better . Very noisy.. sweets were great !

I was very disappointed...my second visit to Hello Aunty, the food although good, I watched our pancake sit on the bar for bar for 10 minutes, by the time it was served it had lost the fresh hot texture that I experienced on my first visit, oh and the prawns, some not peeled which was an unpleasant surprise in the mouth. Finally we ordered Kobi beef as a second course to share this was also not hot and sorry I don’t think the fusion vibe worked with adding Parmesan cheese. I am sad as I had been recommending Hello Aunty to friends. I think your problem is success! Too busy, not enough staff to get food to tables in time to enjoy it in its prime.

Food was really good - fresh & tasty & beautifully presented.
Service was very helpful in terms of what to order for the 4 of us & very attentive despite being really busy. Restaurant is rather noisy just because they are so busy but definitely worth putting up with.

We went to hello Auntie on recommendations of friends. I don't know what the hype and fuss was about. If you like wanky, expensive joints, this is the place for you. If you want humble reasonably priced great Vietnamese food, go to the family run restaurants a few doors down. Yes the service was good but the food in my opinion was nothing special.

Interesting menu. Has a bit of a twist.
Starters were great: veg rice paper rolls, calamari, chicken skwers,
Mains were a bit of a disappointment, the prawn special was a downer as were the noodles.
The tofu msin was good.
Good ambience. Service was very slow.
Overall a good experience. Worth a visit

Hello Auntie is a great place to eat out if you want something a little more special. I like that it's licensed and that a lot of dishes have a modern twist. I would like it if it was a bit quieter and not so jam packed, but I'm happy it's popular, means it should stick around.

First of all let me say that the food is really, really good. But at the prices charged ($100 per head), it should be. The issue is with the service - it's just not professional from some of the staff. We had to get the attention of the waiter, no smile, or interest, the maitre d' is very officious and not really welcoming. The ambiance out the back is poor - its really obvious that the space is concrete with a dodgy fake wall. All this would be fine if they weren't charging what are pretty high prices for Vietnamese food. I have been here for lunch and it was a much better experience, so I would come back here again, but probably not for dinner.

Not a lot of space between the tables and the tables are small, this is our second time there, both times the service and the food were great. Wine and beer selections are very limited there was a choice of 2 beers, 1 Vietnamese the other Chinese and the wine list isn’t much better which is disappointing.

Such a great experience. I have an allergy and always make a note when I book. This is the only Restaurant that has actually taken note.

The Host had everything organised. The waiter on the night was lovely. Food was excellent.

Loved the experience and will be back for sure.
