The food at Bay Tinh used to much better. For years it was a hole in the wall Vietnamese restaurant, no fancy decor - just amazing food. Unfortunately, since a renovation and a change in ownership, the food is so - so. Depending on what you order, it can be outstanding or not good at all. We went... read more

I have been coming to this restaurant since Harry took over about 8 years ago and have had consistently good food here. I recently visited with my brother and his partner who had never eaten in Marrickvile before. They were amazed at the food at a Harry's and were blown away by the pork spring rolls, the garlic prawns and... More

I went here to show my gf the food that my culture has to offer. I have never been so embarrassed. Took 30 minutes for the rice paper rolls to come out, and they looked like two bite size spring rolls with no mint leaves or herbs. The canh chua was overly sweet. I told them this isn't normal, tasted... More

I must be easily pleased but I have been to this restaurant in the last 3 months about 3 times when going to see a show at The Factory theatre and I have had nothing but a wonderful experience. The servings are generous, the food is fresh, the staff are attentive and the pricing is very reasonable. I have not... More

Dining at Bay Tinh is like a trip down memory lane. While I can’t claim to have been dining here for all of its twenty-eight year history, I have spent many an evening in the (previously putrid pink) space, albeit mostly when it was in the hands of predecessor and founder, Tinh Tran. In the ensuing three decades, Sydney’s Vietnamese... More

We have been going to this restaurant for many years and we love the food. Unfortunately what used to be fabulous value for money has, since the refurbishment, become excessively expensive. It's off our list of regular eateries.

Bay Tinh offers amazing food! We often order the same dishes, which are too much for two people, but all so good, hence, we cannot NOT order one of them: Vegetarian Pancake (very crispy on the outside and great filling with amazing sauce) Bonfire (the waiter brings this to the table and lets it cook for a while before you...

Authentic Vietnamese food served by friendly, courteous wait staff. Extensive menu, offering specialities of the house not seen at any other restaurant. Good quality ingredients, great sauces, altogether a delightful experience. The decor is charming with artworks showing snippets of Vietnamese life, while the choice of seating consists of cosy booths as well as a variety of table sizes and... More

We visited last night and ordered five dishes to share. Although the food was delicious the prices were pretty high for the serving sizes. Rice cakes entree recommended. Yum.

Went last night after attending a show at the Factory Theatre with high expectations, as I'd heard good things about this restaurant. So I was very surprised when it turned out to be one of the worst restaurant experiences I've ever had. On arrival, we asked for a table for two - the woman pointed to two chairs along the... More
