This was my first experience of Vietnamese cuisine and it was certainly good enough to make me want to try more. However, it was to my mind just like Chinese with attitude - indeed sweet & sour pork and lemon chicken were amongst the "Chinese" dishes on the menu. There were though also plenty of dishes that were different, such as chicken or prawn with garlic, chili and lemongrass. All the dishes that I sampled were good and the price was reasonable. I'd happily go here again although I wouldn't say that it's a must-do.

I absolutely LOVE this restaurant. Lovely service people and the food is just divine! The Tran Tran chicken and the Satay beef are divine. They allow byo wine and the bill is always next to nothing. Order a "birthday cake" for your over-age birthday celebrations for a giggle. The restaurant in up near the top of Victoria street (the Hoddle St end) and a 2 minute walk from North Richmond station, so also very easy to get to.

Tran Tran's service is fast and attentive at lunch but not so at dinner. Its offerings are similar to the others in Victoria Street, but it is not as crushed or as noisy. It is a quick and easy in and out place to eat when you want to escape work but still got to get back in under 45 minutes. There are better Vietnamese restaurants around!

The service was attentive, but so it should have been, because the restaurant was almost empty (lunch time, 12-3 on a Wednesday). Ricepaper rolls were ho hum, crispy quail wasn't crispy although the serving was large, and a prawn dish had overcooked prawns. None of this was particularly dreadful but the overall impression was mediocre. There are plenty of Vietnamese restaurants nearby - a friend chose the venue on this occasion, but next time I'd be looking up Tripadvisor for something more highly rated.

The lettuce cups here are fantastic and I love the atmosphere - very busy and quite noisy, just like a real Vietnamese restaurant. I found the price to be quite good, particularly if there are a few of you sharing dishes. I would recommend this as a place for lunch or dinner if you have had a big day of shopping in Richmond.
