Decided to have dinner at Hum Restaurant last night after reading reviews. What a disappointment. Arrived and asked if there was a table available and the answer was yes. We went upstairs and there was nobody in the restaurant. We sat down and the waiter brought us warm water and menus. I asked if the seafood salad had capsicum to... More

A pleasant greeting is always a good start. Cold water bottle, glasses menu cutlery, on the table as we sat. Deal explained. Waitress was from China not Vietnam-no marks of for that. Good start, clean. Nice little terrace out the back-for summer visit. Toilets good and not downstairs. Nice start. The menu doesn't go on for pages-good. Started with the... More

This Vietnamese restaurant was busy and the service was quite fast. It is BYO with a NZD5.00 corkage which is reasonable. The food tasted fresh and spicey.

We went here for dinner last year and I hate to say this because the staff are so lovely but the menu was confusing and the food was average at best. They do great coffee and cookies during the day but I wouldnt go back for dinner. :(

Although this establishment has changed hands several times over recent years, particularly since it changed from an evening only restaurant and pizza takeaway, to a day and evening establishment, we have been regulars. It is convenient, has consistently good coffee and the proprietors are always keen to learn customer personal preferences. That means that my poached eggs are cooked exactly... More

We went along to Hum for lunch, unsure of what to expect. The homemade pies were delicious. I was pleased to find a vegetarian pie and my other half was very happy with his mince and cheese. Friendly service too.

Downstairs at Hum is a longstanding cafe/bakery for breakfast and brunch, but upstairs is a new Vietnamese restaurant opened in October 2011 by the family that used to run the once very successful Vietnamese on Albany Highway. Hum has a good selection of excellent food at good prices and is a nice place to go for a good meal. We... More
