“best Vietnamese food outside of vietnam”
Reviewed July 21, 2011

After 4 weeks away in Vietnam the first thing after you get of a plane to do is sleep.The second is eat.What do you crave for... Vietnamese food.It's4 degrees when you get out of the plane,all I wanted when I woke up was comfort food.Pho.. I need Pho,down to Jetty road.First was Pho,so good, as good as the saigon Pho,rich stock, noodles and the plate of fresh herbs and lemon and bean shoots.Second course was bbq quail,yum,yum,yum,finger licking good.third course Salt and pepper chicken,if they could put it in a Chip packet and sell it over a bar to have with a beer or a wine they would be millionaires,so moorish even when your full you fit in one more piece.Then Basil lime beef, rare beef,no fat,sprinkled with Basil and fresh lime juice,can't describe it till you taste it.Thuy Linh is a small restaurant on Jetty rd.Vietnamese family run.Mum and dad are the chefs,assisted by their soninlaw.Their daughter Anna runs front of house along with her sister Nhe and family.Great value, Awesome food,informal atmosphere.Byo $10 also take away.This is the Vietnam we go to when we are not in Vietnam.

“Superb food, friendly people, not too noisy!”
Reviewed August 9, 2010

Superb food, friendly people, not too noisy! This restuarant would have to be one of the best value for money eateries in Jetty Road Glenelg.
