Delicious and great value in the sedate end of Victoria Street

We're usually Van Mai regulars but decided to venture next door to Loi Loi and now we have two favourites. Attentive staff and super tasty dishes like the vermicelli salads and the pho soup one of the tastiest ever! So much more relaxing at this end of Victoria Street without the crowds.

This place is small and a little further from the main Vietnamese restaurants in Victoria Street, but well worth visiting. We have been here twice in the last month - and have not been disappointed. The food is fresh and the portions are great. It is noisy but has a vibrant atmosphere. we would definitely come here again!

The meal was great! Unfortunately there was a noisy group of people whose voices escalated during the evening. Not recommended if you are after a romantic dinner. Service and food quality excellent though.

We have been eating here for many years and the quality of the food has always been good. Classic Vietnam choices of rice paper rolls, Pho, dry noodle soup, chilli Quail are always great. They do a fantastic Curry Laksa

Family with a 4 year old. Eat here regularly always quick and friendly service and amazing meals. Pho is amazing. My favorite is the pork spare ribs with rice vermicelli. So full of those fresh Vietnamese flavors.

We love to go there for lunch or dinner and every time the meals are consistently good. Our favorites are the beef in mint leaves, rare cooked beef salad and combination spring rolls. We take our friends there and often find out that they chose to take others there at other times as well. A nice vote of confidence in... More
