Cheap, cheerful and overall good Vietnamese food

Eat here almost weekly, very reasonably priced food, menu perhaps a little limited but seem to do it well. They were closed for a few weeks over Xmas and tried some others in the local area, more expensive and not as good

Great food, great pho, quick service. Not fantastic decor but good simple and honest. Low prices and the good honest food ensure repeat business. We keep going back.

One of my local favourites. Been here over a dozen times eating in and taking away. Cheap and cheerful. Entrée usually some type of fresh rice paper roll and fried dumpling (looks like a gyoza). Main is usually either Beef or Chicken Noodle Soup or some type of Vietnamese Noodle Salad (lemongrass chicken or pork). Great tasting food, super quick... More

I dream of the lemongrass beef with vermicelli. No other Vietnamese restaurant does it better - believe me, I've tried! Great place for a delicious, quick and cheap meal.

A parochial Drummoyne eatery which offers a simple, quick and tasty meal. Nothing flash but fresh food and adequate serves. Worth a look if local or passing by. BYO.

Under previous management, this would not have happened. Very disappointed that we were turned away at door.

Having a Vietnamese partner, we've tried most of the Viet restaurants around Sydney and this rates as the best for authentic traditional dishes at very reasonable prices. The setting is simple, the service is always friendly & most importantly, the food is very fresh. Top dishes we'd recommend include the lemongrass chicken rolls, crispy skin chicken with tomato rice and... More
