“Fantastic food but overpriced now!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

We used to go here regularly before it went posh and sophisticated. Although the food is still fantastic, the service has suffered and the food is exponentially more expensive than it once was. For vegetarians the bonfire beancurd is a difficult one to miss.

“Terrible service”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Five of us - 3 adults, 2 mid-age kids - visited last Saturday night. We'd booked for 6.30 but when we arrived they had no record of our booking. We ordered 3 entrees and 2 mains, plus rice. The first entree came after 30 mins, the second after another half-hour. The third entree never arrived. Mains took 2 hours; we had to beg for some plain rice while we were waiting to stop the kids eating the furniture. They didn't have the wine we ordered (but took 20 minutes to tell us that) and it took 3 requests to get tap water and another 2 requests to get some glasses. No refills. The food was fine, but too much too late (eating at 9pm after 6.30 arrival). The restaurant was busy but not full. When we got the bill, we'd been charged for the wine we never had.

“The restaurant has evolved over the years but still best crispy pancake around!`”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Ahhh Bay Tinh you always deliver.

I remember when you were the old style non updated 1950's looking restaurant that was as cheap as chips. I actually miss the old days.

Unfortunately when your premises were updated so were the menu prices but it's still a great place to eat. My favourite by far is the crispy pancake and spiced beef cubes. They are to die for. Have also had the various hot pots numerous times and have always been good.

Still a great place to go and make sure you make a reservation.

“Great Family Resturaunt”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We have been to this resturaunt many times, both with friends and our children. It can get quite busy at times so not so suitable for a romantic evening. The menu is extensive so you might need to enlist the help of the waiters who seem to be family or relatives from Vietnam who are in Australia studying. This adds to the authentic experience. Make sure you try the steam pots and do it yourself fresh spring rolls.
