Ordered lemon grass beef with vegetables accompanied by rice. I expected the flavour to have at least a suggestion of flavour of lemon grass. It was the most bland dish of slop I've ever been served. Made comment at desk and was offered 10% off bill. I declined as felt they needed cash more than I did! Difficult to get... More

I had the pork chop with broken rice. Extremely tasty meal. Filling and only about $11 for lunch. Nice large restaurant in a new location now. Much better than previous premises.

The service is good and the food is quick. The vermicelli noodle salad is a winner :) We were visiting as a big group of 14 people and they were very accommodating at very short notice so we were happy with our experience :)

We went there for the first time in December last year. The food was delicious and as we had a banquet (we were 6) we had lots to try from. It was so nice and peaceful in there, we will definitely go back again.

We had to be in and out within forty five minutes and the staff were very accommodating. The food was decent, the vermicilli salad with spring rolls being a highlight. However it was very hot in the restaurant, not sure if the air conditioning was broken?

Ordered a vegetarian vermicelli spring roll salad as I have been a vegetarian for many years now. Once the meal has come out and I have began eating, the taste and smell was disgusting and as I started to unwrap the spring rolls it appeared that there was pink meat inside. I asked one of the staff to come over... More

Lunch - Vermicelli Noodle Salad (Bun) was a big disapointment; the shoots were brown/old and obviously past the use by date, lettuce was wilted, mint blackened at the edges, tofu was very dry and had the old n cold feeling about it, and then the chilli sauce which should bring the dush all together (if it us good to start...

Nice Vietnamese restaurant near the city centre. Food is reasonably priced and portions are good. Recommend the roll your own rice paper rolls. Service is also good.

We enjoyed a lovely dinner at Ha Long Bay, although we were slightly apprehensive with some of the previous reviews. Two of us shared a mixed entree and two main meals with rice, all of which we thoroughly enjoyed. With small BYO charge our bill came to only $51 so certainly couldn't complain with that. The restaurant wasn't full at... More
