A family run Vietnamese vegetarian restaurant. Food prepared by authenic Vietnam chef. Food quality is above average. Services is great. Food price is slightly below usual average. All these combined, this is a great place for a meal with the family.

A lovely place to pop into for a quick dinner, not hurried by the staff after finishing. Good food but nothing that really makes it stand out as a destination cafe although it's great to have absolutely nothing but vegetarian food on the menu! That's wonderful. A nice dinner, food average to good.

Each time I eat at Vina's I King Street I leave feeling lighter, healthier and telling myself 'that's the kind of food I want to eat every day' - a feeling I've only sensed before when leaving several Macrobiotic restaurants. The place is 'no frills' by dint of the furniture, echoey tile floor, sliding door and entry ramp - but... More

Interesting Vietnamese vegetarian food- ambience is passable as is the food. Been in present place for some time but now has some competition and needs to up its game to match. Food is good. Decor a little dated

Clean and fresh ingredients for the rice rolls we had ordered. They did a good job as what we expected for rice rolls shall be clean and fresh. We like the tofu options and the way they served the rice paper. It is good in value for its price.

Tasty, generous portions and not oily. However, I think I won't go there anymore, because I think they put something in the food that I probably do not tolerate well. MSG? I ate there twice and every time I experienced annoying phlegm in my throat just after eating and puffy eyes the morning after. This happens to me most of... More

I really enjoy this place. The staff are really friendly, the food is cheap (you can easily eat a tonne for $20-30), and the food is good. I recommend the mock chicken wrap that you make yourself at the table, great sauce and flavours all round. My absolute favourite is the fried dumplings in the entree section of the menu,... More

Such a treat to be able to order anything from the menu.... The food was tasty, well presented and filling. This was my first time having Vietnamese food and I was highly satisfied. My partner who is not vegetarian also really enjoyed the food and we both left feeling full, content and felt we had extremely good value for money.... More

Tasty meal, good portions. Place was busy. Cost $20pp for a main, rice and a drink. We had to end up going and getting our own drink from the fridge as the waiter kept forgetting to bring it.

I love this place and eat here regularly. Not only is the food very cheap it is also completely vegetarian. The atmosphere and decor are rather plain but the staff are very friendly and accommodating. I usually have a pho or some kind of noodle soup because they do them really well. Also it is hard to find a vegetarian... More
