“Nice cheap tasty food, perfect for a quick meal.”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

OK, if you're after a restaurant with fancy decor and great location, forget it. The front of the shop looks more like an ex-office or something like that. Dated decor, a flickering ceiling light, no music but it's BYO. You seat, you order, the food arrive quickly and that's it.
we were here for dinner in a rush (we only had one hour), which is why we chose this place ( we found it through the entertainment book C50). We had 2 dishes from the today's specials: I had a crispy duck dish, very tasty, and my wife had a beef dish, tasty though a bit bland we thought.
To be truthful, we spent a fortnight in Vietnam back in January 2014, so we're a bit more critical when it comes to Vietnamese food and taste. A bit more taste in the food and I would've rated it 4 stars.
Nice owners and family running the place.

“Excellent Vietnamese food”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

I come here for the food which is tasty, authentic and good value.

Its in a little bit of a random location (although not that far from the Northbridge action really) and in terms of ambience could do with a bit (ok, a lot) of work!

All about the food.

“One of the best Vietnamese food in Perth”
Reviewed 20 January 2013

Great Vietnamese food. Excuse the ambience so if you're there for the ambience forget it as there's no piped in music and all you hear is the kitchen and people talking. If you're looking for tasty Vietnamese food though, this is the place. Try the Beef Noodle soup with the soup separated. Its one of their best dishes.

“Delicious, cheap with easy parking in Northbridge”
Reviewed 24 November 2012

great choices for meat eaters or happy vegos. huge serves that are ideal to share. plenty of crisp veges come with either the meat or bean curd (tofu) choices. BYO. Try the chinese tea to finish off your dining experience. This is a no frills restaurant where the aroma tells you it is going to be worth the effort of eating in so everything is piping or even sizzling hot but take away available if needed.
