I dined here early November with my father , brother and 15 year old son. Three things I immediately liked were the vietnam photographs and memorabilia, the acoustics and the lighting. Too many restaurants are dark and noisy. This was a good balance. The service was pleasant and efficient. For entrees we ordered the duck salad, quail and crisp rice... More

I made a booking for 4 people on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy when we arrived at 6.30pm for dinner. We spent quite some time perusing the menu and eventually had to say to the staff we were ready to order. We opted for two entrees, four mains and rice. The restaurant is BYO which is a plus....

Recently hosted a business dinner with a table of 8 people. From the start, we were warmly welcomed and quickly seated. The menu was carefully explained and recommendations were provided given the size of the group. I just could not fault the service. You could easily see that the team at Tran's are well trained, knowledgeable about the cuisine, and... More

Recently visited Trans and have been coming for many years. Yes the food is reliable. But on this occasion service was not just poor but non existent. 40 minutes to get your order taken. A longer wait to get the food delivered. Some of our party had things to do the next day so half of us left and went... More

Smiling and gracious service from lovely waitstaff. Welcome touch to bring chilled glasses for champagne we were celebrating with. All four entrees and mains very tasty. Full house but service still good.

Tran's Vietnamese is one of our favourite restaurants. From the smiling service to the delicious food the entire experience is one we enjoy every time we go . The Vietnamese pancake is wonderful as are the fresh spring rolls with dipping sauce . We find we often just order from the entree menu as there is so much to choose... More

Five of us visited last Sunday 19th June 2016. We have enjoyed Tran's food on a number of occasions before. As usual a very friendly welcome followed by excellent service throughout the meal. We looked forward to a banquet so ordered to share four starters, four mains and four desserts. We tried the scallops, duck salad and twice cooked quail... More
