I come here for their pho. I like their crispy chicken with egg noodle soup - $12. Must try, the vegetarian fresh rolls - &9.50 served with hot sauce, yum!

Have had some of the best Vietnamese food here outside Vietnam! Their pho was excellent but other dishes were very good too! We already have plans to go back tomorrow for more pho!!

Went there after work with family. Got there around 5 and there were people already. Ordered beef combination pho and crispy chicken skin with rice. Pho was so delicious. Also chicken and rice was nice. I did enjoy.

Service isn't great - they can't really speak very good English, but their food is fresh and great in taste. They weren't up to date with a wine cooler!

It's been years since we ate here. The food was okay, but it didn't rock my world. The place was full, wasn't sure if it was due to the festive season or they have a loyal following. Service was prompt and being a BYO made it more appealing. Doubt that we will return so many more better restaurants in the... More

First meal out of the airport was here because of the rave reviews and it was also on the way to Blue Mountains. Was sorely disappointed with the quality of food as all the soup dishes were so salty and tasted strongly of MSG as well. We ordered a crab meat broth soup and what arrived was astonishing. It was...

The service came with attitude. The food quality has gone downhill, little flavour topped up with MSG. The Vietnamese coffee tasted like dishwasher even though we asked for it to be brewed strong (and was assured it would be strong). Very average.

Three of us lunched here choosing snow peas & vegetables, salt & pepper squid & steamed rice with mixed seafood & vegetables to share. Everything was cooked to perfection, was very fresh & prawns were large. Would have loved more snow peas & prawns though. Attentive service & casual atmosphere. Worth going back to for its reliability & consistency.

Get the pho. Do it. It is great. Tasty, warm and nourishing. They don't care how much you slurp your noodles or soup. Consistently delicious - our go to for Pho in the Ville.

If you are expecting extremely tasty Vietnamese food then this is the place in Marrickville. We were a table of five and we had a mix of Pho, vegetarian dishes and entrees. The deep fried egg plant was to die for and so was the deep fried tofu and also the spring rolls and really everything was great. This was... More
