“A favourite for many years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

We have been going to Tran's Restaurant since the 1990s. The menu has not varied a lot, but why bother changing something that works so well? One of my all-time favourites is the Crispy Duck. It is always a great night when we book a private room upstairs with a group of friends. Being BYO is a big plus. Good value for fantastic food and friendly hosts.

“Would not return!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

We had an early (7 pm) booking for four. Love the old pictures of Saigon on the wall but think this restaurant trades on being the only Vietnamese restaurant in the area and has customers who are fellow golf club members! The menu is not very extensive, the dishes are expensive and really not that good. Although we visited on a Tuesday night they appeared to be understaffed with just two wait-staff. We had to ask three times for more water and more rice and the general standard of service was poor. I would not return there...too expensive and not good value!

“Great Viet cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

A great spot to enjoy good Vietnamese cuisine in North Sydney. The menu doesn't change much, but why should it. An old favourite for Mosman locals, so booking worthwhile for busy nights. BYO makes it affordable in an expensive corner of Sydney.
