“Vietnamese food that punches above its weight”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

There are several dozen good Vietnamese restaurants in Victoria St, Richmond, one of Melbourne's key Vietnamese areas, so competition can be tough. The Thanh Nga Nine restaurant stands out among the crowd. Simple design and an economy fit out but the food was unusual and very good the night we ate there recently. The Vietnamese mini pancakes were gorgeous; the Goi Ga Vietnamese Chicken coleslaw salad, always a favourite, was excellent. Among the mains, the Traditional Pork Casserole served in an iron pot with lots of black pepper was very good. So were the mushrooms stuffed with prawn. Some of our group also liked the salt and pepper squid. Corkage is a modest $4 a bottle. Portions were very large.The menus also had good colour pictures of many of the dishes on offer- a good feature. Prices were rather higher than what one encounters in most Victoria St Vietnamese restaurants but we thought the value for money was still good.

“a taste of vietnam in melbourne”
Reviewed April 5, 2011

on bustling Victoria St in the heart of the Vietnamese district this characterful restaurant serves pretty typical Vietnamese food at cheap prices. Starters include a rice and prawn "lollipop" wrapped in rice paper which is fun. The Phoh soup is a meal in itself and costs 8 Ozzie dollars. Chicken with lemongrass and chilli was really good. It's a cafe style restaurant so don't expect much by way of service but the food good and the prices very cheap by Melbourne standards.
