“A bit disappointing for Vietnamese.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011

I went here with some friends for dinner and I was a little disappointed, to be honest. I love Vietnamese food but I found that this was a sort of Vietnamese/Chinese blend and therefore a bit drab. There wasn't much spice, and what I usually love about Vietnamese is all the delicious crunchy entrees, of which there weren't many to note. I also found that the veggetables all had quite a similar flavour and steamed/braised texture.
The service was alright, and the inside looks quite nice, but we were out the back where it's quite daggy.
There's nothing wrong with the food, but nothing great about it either.

“Great food, take your own wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2011

Table was too small for the six of us. And very noisy. Food is excellent and service also very good , would have rated service higher if we had a bigger table. We ordered dishes to share and ended up emptying a couple quickly just so that we could double stack them . Every dish ordered was very nice with the squid special the best.

“Best Vietnamese food in Newcastle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2009

We went to Le Dynasty mid week and it was full, so make sure you book. The food was great and the staff very accommodating for my fussy 14 yr old. Unfortunately, not much atmosphere and the wine list is not great, so I suggest you BYO. Definitely worth the trip for the quaity of the food though.
