Yes' it's only a small restuarant, with a simple decor but it's the quality of the food that will keep custimers coming back. Whilst we had the sliced steak and seafood Phos our friends had the stir fried noodle dishes. Add a few spring rolls...in for a crunch and it was great eating on a cold winters night in Toowoomba.More

We popped in unannounced at 2pm on a Friday and had the most amazing lunch. The deep fried tofu rice paper rolls were so good that our daughter ordered seconds, while I blissfully devoured the Lemongrass Chicken Bun Noodle Salad Bowl. My husband loved his...deep fried wontons and ate every drop of his Chicken Pho. We were literally devastated that we lived two and a half hours away because we'd be eating here every week without a doubt if we were locals. Huge servings, lovely service, excellent food and great value for money.More

Stumbled across this little gem on our weekend away in Toowoomba. Amazing food and very affordable and great service! I'm obsessed with Pho's and this was honestly a very good, delicious and extremely decent sized Pho! The Wonton Pho was really good, and so was...the Noodle Salad Bowl. I would definitely recommend giving this a visit!More

First time it wasn’t great. We ordered take away from the original Saigon app to pick up at 5:50. We ordered it a bit after 4:30 when the sun was up and we were still outside playing with the kids. My wife checked her phone...at 5 and said that the food was ready for collection. I rang and asked if it was just an app problem and but they said the order was ready. A communication issue meant is was just easier to go and get it early. So by the time I got there and back , and still before the ordered time, the food was already soggy and well on its way to being cold. It all tasted good but it wasn’t one of their best efforts.More

Have you ever had the pleasure of trying a dish and declaring .... “yep, that’s my favourite” ... until you try the next one. New favourite. Then the next one .... strewth, new favourite etc etc. Well we had one of those rare moments when...we tried this place for the first time (takeaway). Easily located on inbound side of Toowoomba’s main drag from the North. Parallel parking out the front, and apparently more parking at rear. Remember this is Toowoomba’s Main Street, so be careful getting into/out of your car. Wheelchairs OK. Toilets inside, but we didn’t go, so can’t comment. A handful of tables and chairs for the dine-ins, but there were none when we visited. Pleasant lady out front, with quaint language barrier .... in a fun way. Extremely funky artwork about the inside walls, and we liked the fluro lights, with some red ones amongst em on the outside. Reminiscent of cafes of yesteryear, evoking happy memories. Wait time was OK. Food fresh as only the Vietnamese can do, plenty of vegies and perfect light flavours. OMG, that lemongrass chicken .... my favourite!! But the noodle chicken, BBQ pork salad and amazing beef fried rice were my favourites too!! I’d have to say the chicken baguette was the only slight in this company. It was fresh, and nice and crispy. But it just seemed to have grated carrot as nearly the Prima Donna performer. And I’m just not sure how fond I really am of grated carrot baguettes! Seriously, it was so packed with the stuff you could barely see anything else. It was overflowing out the side of the roll .... almost like a big crescent shaped beard! We will most definitely be back to this jewel of a place, and will perhaps order the same stuff all over again .... sans the baguette!!More

Cheapest place to eat in town. Ate like pigs and only $48. The soft spring rolls yum, normal spring rolls yum, soup yum, salad yum, fried chicken yum. The very keen and friendly host was great. All round good and we will definitely eat again.

Very nice food, generous sizes and good prices....staff friendly ( a bit young and inexperienced - but you have to start somewhere!! ) Good spot for a casual dining place.

Delicious tastes of Vietnam served in large sized portions at low costs. Used original spices and seasonings. Very fresh food. Takeaway also available, which kept the venue busy. Catered for a large family group for a birthday celebration. Soft Drinks were expensive, but the low...meal cost meant a nice affordable evening out. Very good for the family to attend, with conversations held without loud music. Children felt welcomed, so it was relaxing. Street parking is available for free after 5pm. Not classy in decor or Vietnamese themed. Service was friendly.More
