“Delish!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

I called in on the way past for some take away. The service was quick and attentive and my soup (it cant be easy to package) was brought out to me within minutes. It tasted extremely authentic and i was very impressed. I will definitely be going back to try other items on the menu!

“What's the hype all about?”
Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

Noodle soup that my wife had was good! But I had a 'lamb' sizzling dish. Well I'm not sure that was lamb, didn't taste like lamb... Not a very pleasant texture or taste in the meat. Worse still, it didn't agree with my stomach and I had to get up in the middle of the night for a session on the bog. Chinatown area is ok, nothing special, and decor is sterile, not that that bothers me much if the food was up to it to compensate! Expected more after seeing previous reviews. On the upside its a bring your own restaurant and there's a place to buy wine just a few shops down on the corner with good selection of wines.

“Absolute Fave Vietmanese Restaurant Ever!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

I have been visiting this restaurant since the mid 80's and it never fails to disappoint. Forget the daggy surroundings...it has NEVER been about looks for me. The food is exceptional each and every time, the staff are delightful each and every time, the menu is enormous and it is extremely great value. Every other Vietnamese Restaurant I have ever been to pales in comparison.

“Very good”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Fair prices and good food. Much better prices than the red lotus across the road which is a bit too trendy with it.

Love the salads, and always enjoy the chefs specials.

Excellent salt and pepper squid.

Have a three coloured drink to ensure complete happiness.

There is an upstairs which you can book out for functions too.

“Value for money”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

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.
