We went here for our work Christmas party. The food was actually pretty good. Everything tasted fresh, and was nicely prepared and presented. The location of this place is excellent; right in the centre of town within walking distance to other venues, and lots of parking. What let this place down, was that it was a busy night, and they...

Ate here three years ago with friends. Food and service was fabulous. Came back tonight and looked rather shabby. This should have been an indication to us that things had gone down hill. We got the crispy chicken, full of bones and overcooked. Also got a small fried rice, bland and boring and the meat in it was terrible. So... More

we were in Rocky one afternoon an thought we would drop in for a nice Asian meal by the river. Sad to say it was a very disappointing experience. The staff didn't even notice that we wee there until I put my head into the kitchen to tell them. As with other reviews I found the place to be grubby,... More

A collection of Asian cuisine quick and tasty that does not totally reflect its name. Have been a few times and always enjoy my meals.

First we were placed closed to the bathroom while the restaurant was almost empty. The menu was quite confused at the point we took at least 10-15 minutes to choose. Than we asked for a bottle of wine but the waiter was too lazy to go and take it from the cave so he offered us another tipe. In the... More

We had a lovely dinner here at this awesome spot by the river. The service was friendly and good. Yes, except for a wine glass drinks were served in plastic 'glasses'. The atmosphere was good and the food was excellent.

After dining in for lunch sitting by the Fitzroy river l couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting. The disappointing thing was it's an Asian fusion menu, not specifically Vietnamese, l wasn't offered chopsticks, l specifically requested for bean sprouts not to be added to my Pho, the decor is extremely tired and l had to get up and...

Handled a large noisy group booking with ease. Prawns were plump and perfectly cooked. Great hostess, looked after the kids, juggled the alcohol order and managed to get all the picky eaters accommodated. Well done, and its not expensive. Will visit again. .

Took my wife out to dinner tonight and was looking for something different. Sadly I didnt get it. Ive never been to a Vietnamese restaurant before so I was expecting a totally new experience. Firstly this is a Vietnamese restaurant run by Indian folks. While that is not an issue for me, I knew from the onset that no way... More
