The flavours on the meals are amazing but the poor meat quality lets the place down. The beef and chicken were very fatty. They only accept cash too So don't get caught out.

We have been to this restaurant many times and I tried Pho for the first time. Wasn't disappointed. Good food, cheap prices and very fast service. Love the chinese tea as well. Nice to sit at a table near the glass doors to watch the world go by.

This used to be my fave go to place for fast, cheap, reliable, authentic Vietnamese food. Alas, new people have taken the place over in the last few weeks and the food isn't nearly as good. At the risk of sounding like President Dump, it's SAD!

I went here and noticed as I walked in how dirty the glass doors and windows were. I then sat down and heard the waitress being VERY rude to a young Asian girl. She was then quite surely with me and came back to the other girl and was rude again. It is also CASH ONLY - which simply means... More

Not an experienced Vietnamese diner but thought this was very good. Tried the spicey pork soup & by the end was sweating, so definitely spicey & tasty. Very popular with the young asian crowd so reckon it was good. 2 people for $23 incl tea so good value. Inner city Melbourne,near rmit so well positioned. I'll be back.

A quick cheap dinner after a night class with a friend. My dish arrived almost instantaneously but my friend had to wait for hers. I ordered a chicken dish. Can't remember what it was. Think it might have been no 30 on the menu. It didn't look appetizing but I was hungry & ate maybe half of it. It was... More

Asked what is gluten free as I'm very intolerant and the young waiter asked someone else. The answer: everything. I was skeptical so ordered the curry laksa thinking it would be safe. However as I was eating it I noticed yellow noodles which are normally wheat based. I asked another waiter and he confirmed that they were indeed wheat. He... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
