The food here is always wonderful. Definitely have the Vietnamese crispy parcels and combination rice hot pot. The coconut basil chicken is also delicious. Never disappointed. Make sure to book because it is always busy.

For years I had wanted to visit this restaurant and finally I bit the bullet and did so. First of all, BOOK. Who would imagine a little restaurant in Pennington would attract half of Adelaide at lunchtime. I was wise...I booked and I soon understood...More

I've been in Adelaide for several weeks now and, to be honest, I'm having trouble finding places I want to eat. Food tends to be expensive and, well, not the best. I was pleasantly surprised, no shocked, to find such a wonderful Vietnamese place outside...More

We have eaten here a couple of times before and have always enjoyed it, even though well out of our way on the way home. We settled on the banquet for 2 and could not be happier. The quails were very sweet and meaty. The...More

My sister recommended we come here for dinner and it was superb. Cold rolls were fresh and delicious as was the vermicelli noodle salad, although I did ask for lemongrass pork when I ordered it and when it came out it was beef instead... Hubby...More

I cannot believe I haven’t discovered this place sooner! My first recommendation is to book as we booked (luckily) for a Tuesday night and the place is packed. Service wait times can be lagging although food quality of dishes will surpass the wait. Enjoy -...More

Went here a while ago with family and it was packed. Despite having a booking we had to wait for a short while. Wasn't that much of an issue really and worth the wait. Food is good, lots of variety etc. If you are looking...More

This place can get a little busy and loud but the quality of the food makes up for it. The speed of the service made us feel rushed which is the reason it’s a 4 star review and not 5. Staff were friendly. Great value...More

Vietnam Restaurant has been passionately serving South Australia with authentic Vietnamese Cuisine since 1984. From humble beginnings, husband and wife team Dinh and Suong were among the first boat people to arrive onto Australian soil from a war torn Vietnam. With nothing but the clothes on their back, they had to endure many years of hardship before perseverance and hard work could culminate in the birth of the Vietnam Restaurant. Together with their children Tien, Linda and Ben, the Phan Family run one of the longest and most awarded Vietnamese restaurant in Australia. We look forward to making your journey to the Vietnam Restaurant a memorable and enjoyable one!
