“Barely OK meal complete with cat hair.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Went there for lunch based on previous recommendations on Trip Advisor.

The place was empty at 1PM that wednesday except a couple of Asian girls eating at one table, not a good sign but I had walked far to get there and wanted to get some Beef Rendang.

Ordered a Beef Rendang for AUD 14 and got it fairly quickly.

Good points :

- came with a side dish with crisp vegetables in a coconut milk red curry that was good, not anything special but good.
- lots of rice with the beef, quite filling (had a light dinner that day).
- did not get sick afterwards.

Bad points :

- Beef had A LOT of fat in it, sauce was not hot/spicy enough and too sweet compared to the good rendangs I have eaten in the past.

- Cook had been in contact with a cat. There was a single cat hair on the beef, and another one in the side curry vegetables, not that big a deal, didn't make a fuss about it.

“Basic Vietnamese restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

The food was good, but the portions were small. The omelette was very tasty, the spring rolls were a bit dry and the fried rice was very different to anything we'd had before. The decor is ordinary and service was average. We ate here with a group of 16 and the small portions were a bit disappointing. The restaurant allows BYO which was great for our group.

“Reputable traditional Vietnamese/Chinese cuisine.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

I was taken to this restaurant by a Chinese colleague from Sydney. The restaurant decor remains traditionally 60's - 70's and traditional Vietnamese music from the 50's is piped through the speakers.
It was clear that the majority of customers were regulars. The menu is quite extensive with good selection of noodles and soups. I personally has the chicken with cashew nut stir fry and steamed rice on the side. Chinese jasmine tea is complimentary.
My meal was very fresh with chicken and vegetables not over cooked. Not oily nor greasy and just the right amount of sauce. The meal was most enjoyable and along with the rice I was able to complete the dish without feeling full nor that I'd over eaten.
Will visit again next time in Perth as the restaurant is a good walk from my hotel.
