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.

Thought we would try somewhere new and noticed this place packed out on 2 occasions while surrounding restaurants were empty so gave it a go! 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!

Love the pho - just like in Vietnam and plenty of it for only $10 a huge bowl. Other dishes, especially the beef salad and the fresh rice paper rolls are also awesome. Would like to see more Vietnamese desserts come back on the menu.

Doesn't look like much but serves up amazing value food. The salt and pepper quail is ridiculous and their Pho is amazing. Everything that we saw coming out of the kitchen looked great. Definitely a must for anyone looking for a decently priced meal in the valley.

I went for a work lunch on a Friday . The food was fresh with clean flavors. The service was good. The price was good. If you are after cheap, good quality food the Vietnamese is for you.

The Vietnamese Restaurant in Chinatown Fortitude Valley has very good quality food at very reasonable to low prices. Has been an institution for many years here. Highly recommend a visit.
