Victoria Street Richmond is known for its Vietnamese restaurants. Vinh Ky is a fine example of a value for money restaurant in this area. Try the fixed menu special for 2 - its very good value.

We love Vinh Ky and recently a small group enjoyed my sons 21st birthday upstairs.The food never fails to disappoint - spicy whitebait, fantastic chicken, rainbow beef, calamari and greens are some of our favourites. Thanks to staff at Vinh Ky for great service and helping up to celebrate. Even a blackout was not a problem.

Living in Saigon for the last 7 years and while on a quick visit to Melbourne joined my hosts for lunch at Vinh Ky. Now I know why they eat there so often. I mean, with a street full of Vietnamese restaurants, why did they choose this one. Well now I know why. Two things actually. Best Prawn Spring Rolls... More

We have visited Vinh Ky several times, for lunch, and it is always a good choice. The decor is simple, the service friendly, and the food very good. Recommended dishes: Tofu and vegetables - with one of the best satay sauces we’ve ever had Crispy beef strips with honey and sesame We especially appreciated the option of ordering garlic-free dishes...

This one is delicious for the Chinese style food, although I just tried the salty steam chicken with white rice which isn't their best seller, it's still better than I expected, the cooking for chicken is just right, very juicy. They allow bringing own drink as well. One point need to be improved is the service, the staff didn't act... More

It's a little dearer than some Victoria Street competitors but on balance, I think this is justified. We were a party of three and we were very happy with the quality of the food and the standard of service. We ordered soups and a number of small dishes to share. All meals were nicely prepared and were delivered promptly with... More

This quaint modest restaurant on busy Victoria Street goes unnoticed amongst the busy eatery street. The 80's decor and exterior is what makes this such a hidden gem. The menu is modest yet the quality is sensation. One of the best kitchens on Victoria Street. Must try's are the speciality dish Rock Salt Chicken, Hokkien Fried Rice, Wonton Dumplings, Gong...

I was at Vinh Ky on my own for a quick bowl of wonton soup noodles. I actually ordered the larger dumpling version the time. The bowl of noodles came out piping out with a little side plate of chopped chillies and chilli sauce. The noodles were al dente Chinese style, a little chewy al la Hong Kong's top soup... More

Have been a regular here for their lunch where they serve the best fish ball noodles in Melbourne. The fish ball is freshly made and simply delicious. The sui kow (prawn dumpling) soup is also famous for the fresh prawns in it. As it was Chinese New Year, decided to have a dinner there as they did not dress up... More
