Great little restaurant in a beautiful location

My husband and I had a delicious meal at this restaurant last night. We both tried different Vietnamse noodle dishes which were delicious and generous servings. The service was very prompt and friendly. The view out to the Swan River and parklands is lovely.

Points docked for: Lack of wow with main but got what I asked for. Lighting gave it a 'casual' cheaper feel. 3-5min walk from Duxton hotel where I was staying. On water though there is a busy road in between. Indoor and outdoor dining. Decor is nice and looks and appears clean but lights are very bright. Went at night... More

Come for dinner on friends recommendation. Ordered Shanghai chicken with Vietnamese beer. Served fast but after that I was simple abandoned in spite it was just a few patrons. The most annoying part was Vietnamese heavy "yakuza style" tattooed man next table - looks like owner or boyfriend of one of waitress. He enjoyed some car racing show on full... More

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times when visiting Perth - have enjoyed the food mostly - but the service is sooo frustrating. Had a nice entree of Cold Rice Noodle Rolls - tasty little parcels. Followed by a pretty decent Pad Thai - not a traditional Vietnamese meal, but good quality and a good portion. I... More

Everything was nice, nothing mind blowing. Staff friendly and price reasonable. Food was served quickly and was good but lacked the wow factor.

Wow:-). We were visiting friends who are staying near to this restaurant and we popped in for early dinner. The banquet menu was not given out so we asked for it. $40 a head and wow, more than enough food and lots of choice. Food was extremely tasty, some had a lot of chillies but you can pick out. Downside... More

Had dinner at this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. Portion size was very generous and the price was very reasonable. I had scallops and they were cooked beautifully. Food was full of flavour. Staff were good too. Will def go back.

Dinner on Saturday night, good thing a booking was made as they were already quite busy at just 6.00pm. We had entrees of sang choy bao and satay chicken skewers. There was probably too little mince for the huge lettuce leaf but still made for a tasty start! Satay chicken skewers were very generous in portion but I would have... More

I've been eating at this restaurant ever since my folks moved into the apartments above them. It's a lovely local restaurant with wonderful views of the river across to South Perth. Each time I go there it seems that service and food quality never fail to impress. Always very busy which says a lot. Family run business and I do... More

This place was talked up by a local but I have to say they possibly over did it. To be fair there is nothing at all wrong and the food was fine, it just didn't match the recommendation we received. Not helping was they accepted a reservation on Valentine's Day and then called back a few minutes later to cancel... More
