Really disappointing. Poor menu, just the same options but with different types of meat. Food was really unpleasant. I would not return.

The service was quick. Most of the group had the shared banquet for 30.00 which they enjoyed. I had the Bo Rau Cai-stir fried beef with vegetables. The mains are not huge but are adequate size and tasty. You do need to order rice separately...More

Lans is a delicious quaint Vietnamese restaurant on the busy Darby Street. Beautiful meals with options for vegetarians and vegans. The only downside to Lan's are their high prices.

I went with 2 great friends and sat outside. The food and service was fast and efficient. Not expensive and we could bring our own wine .

This is an excellent byo (wine only) Vietnamese restaurant is the trendy Darby Street precinct. The food is very fresh and tasty. Service is efficient and friendly - nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend the soft shell crab.
