The Bahn Xeo and Caramelized fish in clay pot - both signatures of the restaurant - were delicious! A nicely decorated restaurant with good ambience and value. Also try the beef noodle soup - tasty. A short walk from the Marrickville train station, the area around the restaurant in Marrickville is frankly nothing to shout about but we could see... More

1. Pho was good, soup was tasty and no (or very little) MSG added. Beef was fresh but was a bit over-cooked. I like my beef pink when they served. 2. Grill pork-chop has no flavour at all. And I am sure it was not char-grilled. Tasteless pork-chop rice is not worth of 13 bucks. Avoid the pork-chop here. Many... More

This small restaurant in the Illawarra road vietnamese strip of Marrickville will not disappoint. The restaurant is licensed (all wine $32) or BYO for $2 corkage per head. We had rice paper rolls to begin with. They were nice. Next we had the crispy duck pancake filled with bean sprouts. This was delicious and a must have if dining here.... More

Yen for Viet is authentic and great value. Crispy pancake is fantastic....the one with duck is sublime. Caramelised sword fish in clay pot was beautifully cooked. Service is very attentive and very knowledgeable about the dishes. Excellent value.

I agree with another reviewer's comment that the staff here are friendly and helpful. As the menu is genuine Vietnamese and not dumbed down for Western tastes (like a lot of Thai menus) you can get an excellent and well priced meal here. Five dishes (mixture of 3 entrees and 2 main courses) plus rice and a byo charge were... More

Much competition in Marrickvile for Vietnamese and Yen is up there with the best. I prefer Bau Truong for some meals but the pho at Yen is the best. Don't hold back, go to both restaurants!

This restaurant is well laid out, with modern decor and comfortable seating. The staff were great, with timing on the courses good. The menu is a little daunting for the Vietnamese food inexperienced like myself, with so many options, but my love of Asian food got me through. Our table of 6 all had different dishes and they looked and... More
