“Authentic Vietnamese food, but need more”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

Lovely to find authentic Vietnamese food in a suburban area - Light, fresh and aromatic. The prices are not expensive, but what is noticeable is that there is not much protein on the plate: most of the meat dishes were barely a step away from vegetarian! Service is prompt and friendly.

“Authentic food at great prices”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

Visited with friends who use the place regularly and I can see why. Basic setting but the food is very good, and reasonably priced. We ordered a range of dishes to share, this is a good way to eat here so you get a taste of several menu items. Recommended, would go again.

“Loved the food ”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 via mobile

Visited here with 2 friends and we thought it was best restaurant during a 1 week stay in the area

The staff were professional and friendly

The interior has a modern feel, and the place has a relaxed feel

We ordered 3 different starters and shared them, all 3 starters were excellent, I particularly like the marinated chicken skewers

Our mains were also excellent, I had slow cooked chicken served in a clay pot. We didn't leave any food behind and thoroughly enjoyed the food

I founds the prices to be mid range and felt offered great value

I will be back here again next time I am in the area

“Uninspiring Food and Experience”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Vietnamese food, when well made, is a delight. Sadly, delight is the last word that comes to one's mind after a meal at Du Nang. We should have known what was in store when we walked in for lunch earlier today and were the first guests of the day. We were seated at the window table. Looking underneath, the remnants of last night's diner's dropped food were all too visible. The sole member of staff was cleaning the place still. Shudder to think what a field day rats must have if the place is left uncleaned overnight. Perhaps, the council ought to investigate.

Anyway, we decided to stay. Sticky menus were soon delivered to us, confirming a general lack of sense of hygiene. We ordered chicken skewers, a Vietnamese pancake and a couple of Pho Soups. The skewers and pancake arrived first. Skewers were tough, overcooked and bland (unlike the description on the menu) and the pancake seemed to have been deep-fried given the amount of oil that it was soaked in. I pointed out the latter to the waiter when he came to take our plate away and noticed the largely uneaten pancake and he offered to inform the chef (which is the last we heard of it - he duly charged us in the end for it without so much as an apology). The soups were marginally better (I suppose it is hard to damage a soup when one has soup stock available) but the standard had been set so low by then that anything would have seemed a step up. They were also not a patch on the Pho one can get in numerous Vietnamese establishments in Kingsland Road or in Saigon Kitchen just a few hundreds yard up King St.

Overall, we certainly wouldn't be going back to this place. There are significantly better choices in and around the area. It is a shame since, as I wrote earlier, good Vietnamese cooking is a very enjoyable meal to travel for.
