“Delicious vietnamese”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

The service is really haphazard but don't be put off
Because the food is delicious. At lunch you can have yummy phos and the dinner menus have anything from regular dishes to steam boats, and banquets. The banquet is around $30-$35 for different options and is a fantastic way to try their range of dishes. Fresh herbs on the table to add to your bonfire rice paper rolls and a delicious pancake you just have to try rather than explain. Make sure you book on weekends

“Arguably Australia's Best Vietnamese Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

Want an authentic taste of Vietnam? Want to do it somewhere other than Vietnam or Cabramatta? Then go to Newcastle Australia (yes Newcastle believe it or not) and eat here. Unbelievable food, beautiful waitresses and great ambience. Best Vietnamese out of Vietnam (I lived there for a month).

“excellent choice and value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I just love the food at Viet King, it is always fresh, service is quite fast and attentive and the price is good value. I especially love the vegetarian pancake, I really could eat it every day it is so good!
The first time I dined here, we ordered too many of the barbeque/steam boat options, where you roll your own summer rolls with the meat you cook...on subsequent trips we have steered completely away from this option, and have found the rest of the menu to be fantastic.
I also like that when you ask for your meal to be extra spicy, they really make it extra spicy. This place is definitely worth a visit. Yum.

We chanced upon this place for lunch. The Pho is really first class. Felt transported back to a recent holiday in Vietnam!,

“great good and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

I found the menu to be extensive. Many vegetarian options. The service was very good, the waitresses were very friendly and helpful. I LOVED the food. The servings were great value for money and wonderful fresh ingredients. The Crispy pancake was great and sooooo big it could have been a main. I then noticde others getting one to share.

My only complaint is that my meal came out about 6 -7 mins later than than my friends and her main meal was only a salad.
