“Lunch Perfection”
Reviewed March 20, 2014 via mobile

What a great lunch stop! My wife had the Soup of the Day - "pumpkin & Dahl with Sourdough Toast" ($10) FANTASTIC and I had Turkish with Double Smoked Ham, mustard, cheese & lettuce. (13.50). Also fantastic. Looking around, other meals looked good too. Gotta recommend this one!

“Simply the best...”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Unlike some other local eateries( where even corkage is ridiculously overpriced... $10! At a nearby restaurant ) Terry Tans Victory Cafe is very well named. Delicious food and vibrant atmosphere combine with a very bohemian vibe to make passing time at the cafe an occasion to savour... The pungent aromas of good coffee and delicious affordable cuisine make for a victory! Without doubt the MOST happening and hippest place in Blackheath! Terry Tan has created a winner!

“Dinner At The Victory”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

Terry Tan is back in the kitchen offering dinner to his many loyal and long-time culinary friends. Terry is well known for his modern Asian cuisine with a touch of Malaysian and Thai overtones.

The casual and almost Bohemian restaurant offers a range of modern dishes in what is a casual yet trendy setting for the day-tripper or the regular diner. Offering gluten free dishes as well the choice of dishes, whilst not extensive, caters for all palates.

Diners can choose to share or order individually so there is ample of options for a great night’s dining. For Entrée there is a choice of Grilled scallops or the special of the day. My favourite was the fried soft shell crab with chilli, curry leaves and toasted coconut - wow!

For the Mains, there is an excellent choice of Thai red duck curry, or Sri Lankan Harak Mas Beef curry or for the adventurous the tasty and highly recommended Tandoori salmon with rice pilaf and tomato salsa. Of course there is the traditional bowl of Rice to share or to have individually.

Whatever you order you can be sure of a cheerful and sincere greeting from Terry who makes habit of coming to meet his diners.

“Really interesting place”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

The café is a great breakfast or lunch choice. It offers a great selection, good food, and fast service.
But what really makes it a destination worth visiting is the antiques shop attached, it is 2-floors and full of a wide variety of really interesting pieces, of a typically higher quality than usually found in these types of place.

“lovely cafe”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

I love the decoration of this small yet relaxing cafe, I happened to be passing through blackheath and stop for a rest at blackheath. they also serve hot food and have an lovely chips. probably not suitable for a large crowd, but certainly good for relaxing over a long drive, or stop and talk with your colleagues. the city itself is lovely too.
