Great Little Place

This place is perfect for events or dinner with friends. Staff are friendly and prices aren't too bad for the banquet option. This place is also BYO!!! What more could you ask for.

Really well priced for lunch and dinner. Delicious soup and noodle bowls. It's BYO which is easy. Not somewhere I would go again and again as such a limited menu. Ordering over the phone is difficult cause often they will not answer the phone.

On each stay in Brisbane, I have lunched at this very popular venue. Ambiance is non-existent; parking in the area (especially during lunch-hour) can be difficult; the wine-list is limited & the service is, although casual & friendly, pretty much below average. But the food is what always has brought me back. HOWEVER ... the standard has dropped! Dishes are... More

I love Asian food so after reading the lonely planet we decided to pay the Vietnamese a visit. The ambiance is simple, more like a street food restaurant. The staff is friendly and correct. And then the spring rolls I love them. The spring rolls from rice paper are the best. I still need a good recipe to make them... More

Have tried many Vietnamese restaurants but this one has the best pho!! Service was quick and the food arrived soon thereafter. The coconut drink is A++++ as well.

I loved the BBQ Pork, Wonton and egg noodle soup. I added the recommended chillies and it was delicious. Neither of us could finish to whole bowl!

I’ve been here a few times (once as part of a large group, sometimes in small groups, and then once last week with my wife and son) and I’ve never been particularly impressed. Yes, the prices are good for the food you get…although to be honest the food is basic and unspectacular, sometimes good, but occasionally bland (although living in... More

This restaurant is one of my favourites Vietnamese Restaurants - however it was a bit disappointing last night. The food was bland and the service was average. I did however love making the fun rolls and the beef for those was delicious. I hope the next time it is better!!!!! Will still go back again.
