“Cam Ranh is back with good fresh Asian food”
Reviewed 11 May 2013

This restaurant seemed to go off for a while and is back better than ever. very good crabs served in about 6 ways and the veggies were fresh and very well presented. As it is small the dishes come out very fast so this needs management. Good staff who agree to every thing so get the prder right and double check. Not flash but sound.

“Bad rainning Monday”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

When to Cam Ranh the first time for lunch after being recommended of chef friend, it was very quiet ( only 1 person) and heavy raining, the lady waitress was watching the Hollywood Oscars, i order the Pho beef soup for my little 4 years old boy and that was fine but nothing special, but no beans shouts or basil , i had salt and pepper calamaris and pork ribs in special sauce, the calamaris where smelling off, had to spit them out my mouth and the ribs sauce was like a vinegar sweet & sour sauce with pieces of pineapples, my wife had the Vietnamese pork chop and it was done in five minutes with no feelings or a bit of a cook presentation, i'm a French chef and love to go to Vietnamese places ( tan thanh in Inala is the best in Qld, Mekong in Melbourne), Sorry but I was not very happy after that first experience.

“Economical and consistent”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

Our family and friends have been eating there for over 20 years and although it has had several different owners over the years there has been a consistent economical tasty Chinese-Vietnamese food served there as demonstrated by the numbers of patrons.
It is not decorated in the over-elaborate "chinese palace" style but a clean suburban look. Look at the dish specials posted on the walls. When mud crabs are in season try the mud crab dishes, my preference is mud crab in ginger sauce which is eaten with the hands. It is a messy gastronomic experience to be enjoyed. It is BYO for those who like a wine with their meals.

“Cam Ranh - authentic Vietnamese restaurant”
Reviewed 11 August 2009

While in Brisbane I recommend a visit to Cam Ranh in Darra. Just a 20 minute train ride from Brisbanes CBD finds you at Darra. Opposite the station is Cam Ranh. Upon entering the restaurant you are greeted by friendly and happy wait staff. The restaurant is usually very busy with outside seating in the summer. The decor is basic oriental as are fittings. The menu is large. Food is served very quickly and usually comes all at once ie entree mains together. Food is authentic Chinese/Vietnamese and delicious. Very good value. Definitely worth a visit.
