“Excellent”

We've returned many times - the rare beef pho is exceptional and prices are very reasonable - staff were nice and accommodating and we will definitely be back to this Marrickville gem!

“Raises the bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Fantastic! The decor is modern and creative - care has been put into the design, the decor, right down to the music. This isn't a flung-together family eatery, but a "real" restaurant. Staff are plentiful, observant, helpful, and quick. A joy.
The menu is extensive, from traditional Vietnamese favourites, to a long list of tasting dishes that could keep you going over many visits and never end. It's a great way to order and enjoy food with friends, with many delights to tempt. Be warned, however, the price is deceiving. You would expect the tasting plates to be small (considering the price) but quite the opposite - great portions, each piled high, of course, with herbs and lettuce. We found this to be a really appealing feature as the value for money the menu represents is outstanding.

“Tasting plates are delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic choices of sharing plates. Fresh seafood and interesting choices such as cassava with pork. Crispy pancake is good but not the best in Marrickville. Coconut and prawn dip is terrific.

“Nice atmosphere, Great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Huge range of authentic Vietnamese food to choose from. You could make an entire meal from the entree tasting plates. Waiters were very attentive and the food arrived at appropriate intervals allowing us the thoroughly enjoy each meal.
