The service was quick. Most of the group had the shared banquet for 30.00 which they enjoyed. I had the Bo Rau Cai-stir fried beef with vegetables. The mains are not huge but are adequate size and tasty. You do need to order rice separately if you want it. Plenty of space upstairs as well as some tables outside.

Lans is a delicious quaint Vietnamese restaurant on the busy Darby Street. Beautiful meals with options for vegetarians and vegans. The only downside to Lan's are their high prices.

Had a great Saturday dinner at Lans. Had been quite some years since last visit. We were pleasantly surprised and the venue has had a internal makeover. We tried the spring rolls and prawn and chicken rolls with both enjoyable. We shared a noodle dish with prawns and chicken which also had egg through the mix. It was delightful. Definitely... More

I went with 2 great friends and sat outside. The food and service was fast and efficient. Not expensive and we could bring our own wine .

This is an excellent byo (wine only) Vietnamese restaurant is the trendy Darby Street precinct. The food is very fresh and tasty. Service is efficient and friendly - nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend the soft shell crab.
