Friendly service and good authentic food

Small family owned restaurant. The food was fresh and very tasty. Service is fast and friendly. We had the Vietnamese Chicken Salad and Salt and Pepper Pork ribs. Both of them were delicious. The restaurant seems to be very popular with locals and tourists.

Went to this place based on Tripadvisor reviews. Great little family run business. Recently returned from Vietnam and this place was as close to authentic as I have found. Spring rolls were the bomb, and our choices, (Crispy Duck & Beef Noodles) were pretty good too. Generous serves, but probably too many choices overall.

I have been coming to The Vietnamese (the only Vietnamese in my book) since 1986 when I first came to Brisbane. Without fail the food is fantastic and great value. I must admit I usually order the same dishes - Steam Dim Sims, Chicken Curry Noodle Soup, Sizzling Garlic Prawns, Salt and Pepper Squid, divine! Why go anywhere else! Love... More

The restaurant looks ordinary but food was very delicious and cheap. Went there on a Saturday evening so it was a bit busy but service was good and food was excellent.

My boyfriend loves Vietnamese food and we usually opt for West end for our fix but The Vietnamese in Fortitude Valley did not disappoint!!! We ordered make your own rice paper rolls with bean curd,... More

Great food great service. Good for great Vietnamese food right in the city. This Restsurant is situated in The Valley Nd easy and safe to walk to. We always enjoy our dining experience here and it's great value for money with no long waits. Probably best to book on Friday and weekend nights though as its so popular!
