We have eaten Vietnamese in many cities and this place compares with the best. We found it quite hot inside although it was a particularly hot evening and the aircon couldn't keep up. Also noisy when it's full. However the food is wonderful and service attentive. $102 for 4 people. We had 4 entrees and 3 mains with rice. Quail... More

Sooo yummy! My husband took me here for my birthday and it was delicious, food was great, service was good was very happy. Now it's of my favourite Asian restaurants in Newcastle! It is quite small so I would recommend booking in advance.

Came here on a Friday night and had a variety of dishes- all of which were super fresh and tasty. The salted tofu was to die for! The staff were friendly and attentive. Highly recommended.

After reading the fantastic reviews, we looked forward to going there. The restaurant was very small and dated, more like a takeaway joint than a "Dynasty" restaurant. But, it was fine until we tested the food. The menu was very disappointing because although it had maybe-vietnamise names but was just like Chinese menu, there were hardly Vietnamise cuisines, such as... More

I have been eating this for years. I always enjoy the food and there is always nice service. Salty squid and the spring rolls are always fresh

The salt and chilli squid best I've eaten (I think ever) and the stir fry's were all great. Satay very good, lemongrass and chilli beef my favourite. And all so friendly there too, great service, food comes out... More

We had dinner tonight and the food was very nice and full of flavour. The only issue was that by the end of the meal a number of people at the table were getting a headache which I am not sure if it is related to msg in the food. We had crispy squid, Ginger beef, Satay chicken and caramelised... More
