This restaurant looks very basic from the street, but don't be put off. They provide very tasty food at a very reasonable price. By the look on fellow diners' faces, everyone was enjoying their meal.

The restaurant is not appealing from the street, the food is just plain bad (the meats were gristly and tough) and I was mortified when the waiter came up stairs at 9:30pm and said "everyone must leave now". We thought it was a joke until said it again in a much louder more seriously manner. I will not be returning to this restaurant and I wouldn't recommend it to others.

Fresh, tasty food at very affordable prices. Also quantities are very generous. Close to Fortitude Valley railway station.

It was our first visit to The Vietnamese. There’s no doubting why this non-descript little place across the road from the Chinatown Mall is so popular. The food is really fresh and delicious. The size of the meals is generous. We couldn’t finish our food so the staff happily packed it up for us to take home. All the staff were incredibly efficient. We were really impressed that the food arrived so quickly given it was so busy. Be warned though – this place is hugely popular. If you don't want to hang around and wait for a table, either get there early or make a reservation. The restaurant is BYO and licensed. They don’t have an extensive wine list but what’s there is good (perhaps a little on the expensive side). There’s no question we will be back. I would absolutely recommend this place.

I ate at The Vietnamese twice in two days, both times with a group of eight people. The restaurant is great value. We had the lunch banquet - lots of good food.
