“Top quality Vietnamese”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

Sydney has plenty of good vietnamese restaurants, this is where you go when you want a quality restaurant to wow someone, but it's definitely no cheap. Food is superb though.

“I love Luke's tucker.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

If the only dish you eat here is the deep fried snapper with coriander, chile and lime (and loads of other ingredients) - you'll be well satisfied. It's the most flavourful, fragrant and delicate fish ever. In fact I'd probably use those adjectives for pretty much all of the dishes @ RL. Although it has become exceedingly popular in recent times, the food quality doesn't seem to have diminished. Hooray! And, the service was pretty darn good too. One thing's for sure - I'll be back!
