We enjoyed a great meal once again. Been coming here for years and never had a bad meal. Salt and pepper eggplant and crispy tofu is a favourite as is sizzling seafood with basil. The crispy rice paper spring rolls with prawn and mushroom also a favourite. Would like to go on Chinese new year as this restaurant does a... More

If you are looking for traditional Vietnamese food in Adelaide, look no further. This is no five-star restaurant experience, but the food is AMAZING and worth the trip to Pennington. Order the make-your-own cold rolls and the chilli quail to start, and then let the waiters order your mains. You won't be disappointed - this place is an institution!

Had a wonderful meal there last night. The food was really good and authentic. I love eating out and this restaurant is definitely on the top of my favorite's list! The new house specialty of natural coffin bay oysters Vietnam style are just divine! I also had seafood salad, soft shell crab, quail and Vietnamese cold roll. Make sure you... More

We had lunch here with friends while overnighting in Adelaide in July; their their favourite restaurant. This is the best Vietnamese food we have ever tasted. The men drooled over the oysters in coriander dressing while we women shared delicious Vietnamese spring rolls. We had Chilli Quail to follow then yummy Rice Hot Pot & Deep Fried Calamari. The quail... More

Inside the restaurant was very loud, and overcrowded, tables very close together, luckily we were able to sit outside to escape the bedlam! Our food ranged from really nice to terrible. The duck was full of bones, but the crispy chicken was really nice. Everything else we ordered just average. All our meals were brought out separately which wasn't ideal... More

We were given a dish we didn't order but didn't realise as we were on a banquet. They tried to charge us for it and had to argue for 5 minutes to get it taken off the bill. They then claimed we under paid and had to argue for 15 minutes to get the charge reversed. Average good. Will never... More

We had heard for a number of years that Vietnam was a great restaurant, finally took the opportunity to eat there last Thursday. The food was delicious with the service prompt and friendly with young waitresses/waiters. The restaurant was packed, a busy take away service running as well. The new house specialty of natural coffin bay oysters Vietnam style are... More
