Came here with my wife. Were not that hungry so we ordered 1 large rare beef pho to share and chicken spring roll. Pho came and it was large portion. Luckily we only order 1 to share. The noodle is soft, the beef is tender...More

I used to eat here every year. The food was cheap, fast, delicious and the male waiters were cool and entertaining. I returned this year after a 2year hiatus to find the restaurant almost empty. At this point I should have run but I loved...More

The menu has be scaled down at Melbourne Vietnam Noodle House, but the quality is still there. Reasonably priced for a lunch in the city.

Their once vast menu has now been reduced by a third and some of their classics are no longer available. For 8 years I have loved taking my interstate guests here... I think today was my last.

Stopped in here for a meal recently & while it was ok, it didn't have any wow factor. Restaurant had a strong fishy odour upon entry. Menus were old & worn giving the place a bit of a dirty feel. Thermos of tea on table...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
