The staff were friendly enough but some had trouble understanding me. (I have a strong Australian accent.) But they were able to get our meals right. The food is fantastic. We live in Richmond and have eaten at many of the places and this is one of the best. The food is fresh and super tasty. Highlights are the duck... More

Ordered the standard Vietnamese dishes (broken rice, spring roll, seafood etc), but the stand out dish was the Barramundi Sweet and Sour Soup ($20 regular, $30 large). They put herbs, tamarind, vegies, chilli, and pineapples into the broth - the soup was bursting with flavour.

I and my family and friends have eat at the Van Mai many times over the last ten years or so and the food quality and service have been amazingly stable and good during that period. Victoria St is a Mecca for Vietnamese food but the Van Mai is among the best places on the strip. The location is particularly... More

We went there based on Anthony Bourdain's review, and he was right! This place serves up authentic Vietnamese food, the highlights being the beef coleslaw salad and the cinnamon chicken. The menu is extensive, the food is cheap and is consistently fantastic using fresh ingredients. If you're looking for Vietnamese on Victoria Street, this is the place to go! We've... More
