Smiling and gracious service from lovely waitstaff. Welcome touch to bring chilled glasses for champagne we were celebrating with. All four entrees and mains very tasty. Full house but service still good.

Tran's Vietnamese is one of our favourite restaurants. From the smiling service to the delicious food the entire experience is one we enjoy every time we go . The Vietnamese pancake is wonderful as are the fresh spring rolls with dipping sauce . We find we often just order from the entree menu as there is so much to choose... More

Five of us visited last Sunday 19th June 2016. We have enjoyed Tran's food on a number of occasions before. As usual a very friendly welcome followed by excellent service throughout the meal. We looked forward to a banquet so ordered to share four starters, four mains and four desserts. We tried the scallops, duck salad and twice cooked quail... More

The table presentation, decoration and service need improvement. The dishes are fresh and well presented, however the accompanying sauces need work The calamari was disappointing, the crispy duck wasn't crispy, however the minced goat curry, was the best I have tasted.

Offers a good selection of Vietnamese dishes catering more so for western tastes. Portions small and well presented and reasonably priced.

Went here on a Sunday night. Food was ok but it's a bit pricey for what you get. For starter we had the prawn and calamari salad - just two prawns and very little calamari mixed with a salad for $18. For mains we had the duck in plum sauce and the beef eye fillet. Duck came with quite a... More

Tran's is now a Mosman institution. High quality Vietnamese food matched by excellent service. Pricier than your average Vietnamese restaurant but not expensive by any means. Highly recommended

Delicious fresh food, good service. They happily accommodated 2 of our party who like very spicy food yet still enabled the rest of us to share their dishes. Was sorry the drunken cow was off the menu - its a real favourite. Like the fact its BYO.
