We had the $28/person banquet - it was great. I especially liked the Chicken with chilli and coconut sauce. The other dishes including the Crispy duck with Asian greens and mushroom sauce, and the Salt and pepper squid were great too. The staff are helpful, polite, and fast - and could work with our kids which was great. We had... More

I enjoyed my visit to The Vietnamese because of the GREAT food. We had the $28 banquet and enjoyed it thoroughly. We had leftovers and took home a doggy bag. I enjoyed the Salt And Pepper Calamari. I'd recommend this place to others😉.

We ordered 3 mains between two of us as we didn't fancy any of the starters plus some rice. We had crispy duck and plum sauce, salt and pepper squid, and pork spare ribs in Vietnamese sauce. It was all delicious and we were so full that we couldn't finish it. We also had a glass of wine and a... More

We walked in at 6.20 pm and got the last table for 2. From then on there was a steady stream of walk ins being turned away. Why not? The Vietnamese has good, tasty food at a reasonable price. A perfect formula.

Been here twice and will definitly come again. The resturant is kinda shabby, not the best atmosphere for a date, but the food is delicious, relatively healty and sooo cheap! Large manu to choose from (with many options for vegetarians) and dishes are more than enough for one. Service is super quick, if not very nice. The slice beef soup... More

My family and i have come here for over 15 years and loved it. the only issue we have found, recently, is that the servers are becoming ruder and not as accommodating. when we walked in on a friday night, we were basically told we had to wait 10 minutes for a table. we were fine with this when we...

My wife and I have been going to The Vietnamese for years now. We love their Pho and noodle soups. They cater well to gluten free too, and the staff get to know the regulars too (and can even pre-empt our order haha) We've also gone here for the banquet every now and again with a bigger group, and they...

A great, low key restaurant in the heart of Brisbane's little Asia (Fortitude Valley). Décor is a bit dated, but this is quickly forgotten once the food arrives. The pho is what earns this restaurant 4 stars. It has a great depth of flavour that gives you the feeling it has been simmering away for some time, and that a... More

The Vietnamese has been in business for 35 years and is still a great place. The food is tasty and inexpensive by big city standards. The place is family run and you feel like you are eating in their kitchen. only advice is get there before 6:00pm as the place fills up night very rapidly...and do not expect a lot... More
