“Inexpensive quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

A tucked away hidden little gem. No frills, but very fresh authentic Vietnamese cuisine. Be ready to queue and wait, and take your orders next door to sit, perhaps at busy times get one to mind a table whilst the other orders. All the pho's are very good.

“Nice tasty inexpensive vietnamese”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2012

At ~$10 for a large serving of tasty pho, this place is good value and consistent. The menu consists of your standard vietnamese fair, not the most adventurous or enticing but sometimes predictability is what you want! We both had the pho which was good and had plenty of flavour (which is often lacking in vietnamese restaurants in Sydney) but it wasn't the best we'd had. The staff were quietly frindly, polite and helpful when asked for anything. The atmosphere is lacking and the decor (take-away style plastic tables and steel chairs), mean it doesn't have the best 'ambience', so definitely not the place to go if you want a romantic meal or for a 'night out' meal with friends, but it's clean and what you see is what you get. I'm sure there's better vietnamese restaurants out there, but the price and location make it a good option, especially if you're just after a quick satisfying meal and not pushed about the other factors as we were when we visited.

“Great takeaway chicken laksa”

Loved the takeaway bowls and the quick, friendly service...truly speedy and great lakes, not too spicy, but you can add more chillies if you are brave!
