This restaurant is awesome - it's a local gem and bookings are a must. From the front it doesn't look like much - but it is very authentic Vietnamese food at its best. The restaurant itself has been there for about 25 years but has changed ownership several times. The latest owners are a family who are passionate about their food and enjoy sharing it with their patrons. The sons who work the floor are great value - very helpful to the uninitiated and on one previous visit in August, sat with us during their down time to share some tips on Vietnamese words that would come in handy for my holiday there in September - how impressive...

The food is sensational - soft sell crab that is so good on 2 previous visits we had to order more; stuffed squid with pork, shallots and lightly fried; and sizzling beef that must be their speciality as every second table orders it. It is one of those restaurants where everyone looks at what everyone else has ordered, guests chat openly about the food and recommend dishes, the staff greet regulars like family and it is BYO.

I haven't been to a better Vietnamese restaurant in Sydney.
