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

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

We keep going back to the Vietnam as the quality, value and diversity of dishes surpasses most of the other Vietnamese restaurants in Adelaide. It's always busy and you know it's good when perhaps half the restaurant is frequented by local Vietnamese. The menu has...More

Fantastic busy restaurant but with such great service from Maria and the team you would think you were the only customers. Spring rolls are fantastic but the pepperpot of ribs and chicken were brilliant. We will be back.

Not you typical noodle 🍜 restaurant. Had fun experimenting with rolls and it was delicious! Kids had fun. Salted caramel ice cream and fried ice cream gave a nice ending to our dinner.

Description
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!
