So sad our fave Vietnamese is no more! Not sure if the dreadful 'pop-up' pho café is still there but hopefully they're not going to be permanent as the food was dreadful.

Doesn't look too fancy from the outside but we found the service very friendly. the prices very reasonably, and the food excellent. A bit hidden in a lane way but well worth the visit.

Near by the Princes Theatre, this is a lovely, clean, well priced Vietnamese restaurant. We had the Pho and it was delicious. The service was fast and exceptionally friendly. The beer was cold and they had Saigon 333, which made me happy. Recommended.

to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on

such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
