It has always been the best Vietnamese restaurant where you can find authentic dishes from mostly the south part of Vietnam. The most famous dishes got to be "Quail / Chim Cút", "Sugar cane and meat balls / Chạo Tôm Nem Nướng", I love the seafood salad with rice vermicelli as well. The restaurant is always packed so make sure... More

There's not a lot to say about Vietnam Restaurant other than "fantastic". The food is amazing (even better teamed with the right wine), the service is really good (despite the crush) and the staff are very friendly. What more can you want.

If you like being crammed in and receiving crappy rude service then this is the place for you. Food is OK but if I am going out and paying then I don't expect to be treated like you are at this place. Did not even receive one of our mains despite 5 (yes 5) requests for it. Overcrowded and the... More

Every year the Vietnam restaurant has three nights of new lunar year celebrations. We went there last night and it was awesome. Linda and the team rocked it out. The food was great, the staff were hard working and very attentive and the band got the punters moving and shaking their butts off. Already booked for next year. Here's a... More

My 1st time in this restaurant, judging by full house at 6:30pm. I know we made the right choice to come here. The restaurant has been operated for over 30 years in Adelaide, even though the decor may look a bit old, but don't let that stop you to visit this little gem! I tried many Vietnamese restaurants in Adelaide... More

Vietnam is a great restaurant which always seems to be busy. I recommend the soft shell crab as it's so amazing and it something I get each time I go. The Quails are so tasty. The menu is large offering Chinese dish options too. The service is efficient but I just keep going back for the food. I really enjoy... More

I've been here a few times and the latest visit was possibly the best; packed house on a Sunday so we couldn't take as much time as we maybe would have liked, but we weren't rushed and the food was sensational. Quail entree was possibly the best I've ever had, and the steam boat main was quality.

Ate at the Vietnam Restaurant with 4 friends. Great service. Amazing, tasty food. We had entree of Chicken Satay, best I have ever had, and spring rolls. Yummy. We then shared 5 different dishes. All amazing. Dessert was banana fritter and ice-cream. The only downside of this restaurant is that it is so busy. There were people at our table... More
