On a recent trip to Melbourne for a family dinner I called into this restaurant for a take away meal to share with seven members celebrating my father's birthday. I can strongly recommend the stuffed chicken wings and the rice paper rolls but our other choices were also of a high standard. The gentleman who greeted me on my arrival... More

Van Mai is a family favourite. We have never had a bad meal here. I am one of those people who doesn't like fatty meat or chicken and every dish is always fresh and spot on. The staff are friendly and helpful, the service quick, food is consistent and always perfect. We dined here a lot before children, now it... More

My wife had been craving some stuffed chicken wings and when we checked the menu online we had a candidate. A relaxed and comfortable restaurant in Richmond. The stuffed chicken wings were part of the order along with stuffed crab claws, beef salad, stuffed boneless duck and rice.Yes a lot of stuffed food!!. All of it wonderful..

Had a lunch special today and it was fast and efficient. The meal was okay without being great - broken rice combination. I'd come back, but would order something differently next time.

Had a very pleasant lunch at this Vietnamese restaurant. We were a bit concerned when a very large bus load of people arrived, thinking this might make for a long wait but this was not the case. We ordered one entree and two main courses and ended up taking 2 take-away containers of food home with us. The food was... More

Our family has eaten at this restaurant for many years but I think tonight's meal was our last at this venue. Our dining experience tonight at Van Mai was incredibly disappointing on many levels. After being seated, we noticed the menu had changed a lot and the variety of choice once offered no longer existed. After our order was taken,... More

We have been dining at Van Mai for over 20 years! This restaurant never disappoints, my kids fav are the newly introduced Peking duck rice paper rolls. Service is always great, we are always made to feel welcome with wonderful service. Highly recommend.
