We stumbled across this lovely little restaurant Saturday night just walking down Brunswick st in search of a great meal and we found it. We were greeted by very welcoming staff, also polite and helpful. They accommodated my request to alter my selection from the menu due to my dietary preference without a fuss which I was very impressed with.... More

This is a great little 'sleeper' on Brunswick St, great value and some of the best Vietnamese food you will ever eat.

We were visiting from Darwin and found this place as we wandered down Brunswick st looking for a special place for my husbands 50th birthday lunch. Staff were excellent and I witnessed them manage a difficult customer with grace - I was impressed. The food was fresh and delicious and plentiful. My children loved it as much as we did... More

A value meal with a reasonable range of wines by the glass or bottle. Restaurant is also BYO wine. Service very attentive to the diner's experience. For example we were given the option of moving when a noisy party arrived nearby. Tried the vegetable curry and a noodle dish with their signature red rice. Nice Vietnamese aspect flavours and offering... More

Have been to this restaurant a few times in the last couple of years and never disappointed. We like to go there for Saturday lunch after shopping. Lunch menu is $9.90 and is great food and great value.

Coconut Chicken Curry was amazing as was the Coriander Chicken, the rice paper rolls were filled with prawn, light and delicate. Vietnamese is my favourite so... More

Three of us ate here in October 2013. None of us had ever eaten Vietnamese food before so went in with some trepidation. I guess it was probably more fusion than pure Vietnamese but we loved the food. It was beautifully cooked with great flavours. We shared a mixed starter which included the best spring roll I've ever tasted. Mains... More

I have been there several times over the last five years, as it was a favourite for us when we had a special event to celebrate. It used to have a great atmosphere and really good food, and the friendly staff were so pleasant, but all that has disappeared. We were the only patrons on a Saturday night. It would... More
