Had a lovely meal in a beautiful setting watching the sun set. Appetisers consisted of spring rolls which were perfectly constructed & cooked and fish cakes. Not what we had expected but were tasty non the less. Very strong flavours of lemongrass. Mains were Saigon Chicken & DIY Wok of scallops in hot chilli sauce. My fault for not asking but the chicken was served on the bone (1/4 chicken) but had good flavours. My husband had the scallops, he said that the dish was very tasty but the vegs through the stir fry were still raw including cauliflower which he left. Mentioned to the staff but they were unsure as to how they were cooked. Price was good $84 for the 2 of us with a beer & soft drink included. Worth a visit!

Firstly I would want to say that our meal was actually pretty good but what we thought it was more Thai than Vietnamese. We are from Uk but have been to Vietnam where we met lots of Aussies so thought a Vietnamese restaurant in Oz would be authentic. for first course had fishcakes and they were OK nothing more. Mains were barramundi done in the wok and the duck and prawn dish. Both pretty good. Service was not so good. Had to remind them about wine which we didn't get till after our starter then one main arrived a good few minutes before the other. Prices pretty standard for Perth.

We're in Perth for a few weeks visiting family for Christmas and eating out at a lot of Perth's great Restaurants, both old and new. Love Vietnamese food, and have great memories of finding brilliant little restaurants, in and around the City. "A great find" is the Southern Star situated on Terrace Road, Perth under the fabulous Altair Building - WOW simply sensational fresh food . This Restaurant is usually 'packed' so I guess the Corporate sector have discovered it - Christmas parties abound !
The menu is vast, with a lot of attention to detail. We have been a few times, enjoying Chicken Sate' Rice, Green Curry, Duck, and their special Vietnamese Rice is to die for. Staff (&Chefs)
are young and cheerful, huge smiles and very good service.
Now our favourite Restaurant, until we leave Perth - we would recommend to all who love fresh authentic Vietnamese food.

This was out first experience of Vietnamese cuisine and we were all very pleasantly surprised. The service was friendly and helped us guide throughout the menu and their recommendations were delicious. The only issue we had was that the wine was too warm but a few ice cubes soon sorted this out! I would not hesitate in recommending this restaurant.

We found this restaurant by chance during a walk along the river
Even though it was early evening the restaurant was busy with a mix of families and couples.
Our food was quickly prepared and we were served by attentive staff with a friendly welcome.
The food was excellent we had the Pad Thai and Ginger Barrimundi and the portions were large and very tasty.
Real value for money.
