It had been years since eating at Trang unfortunately what seemed like a good idea turned out to be a horrible mistake. When we arrived it was busy, the guy taking our order said it could be 30 minutes wait for our food which was...ok. Despite numerous promises that our food would only be a couple of minutes, 30 minutes turned into one hour 15 minutes before our food arrived. To add further frustration, the food was horrible and grossly over priced for what was presented. I won’t make the same mistake again, there are lots more far better restaurants in the area, I will never go back to Trang.More

This once incredible, dependable Viet dining institution is sadly massively missing the mark under new ownership. Our 12 person family lunch was a total train wreck from beginning to end. A misplaced booking meant a lengthy wait for a table, followed by an even longer...one to place our order. The staggered meal drop eventually started an hour later. Pho was underwhelming with no herbs, sprouts, chilli to accompany our soups ever arriving despite repeated requests and 5 lemon sodas (ordered as we first sat down) finally arrived after all meals had been completed and after we had to chase waiters for them four times! After hundreds of amazing meals here over the years, sad to say we won't be back!More

never been the same since Mr Trang and his family left - used to be excellent food. I think the new owners are Chinese - not necessarily an issue except you can taste and see the Chinese influence in the food

We lunch here weekly and have always found the meals to be authentic and tasty. No complaints from us. Will continue to patronise this restaurant.

We went to this Trang Vietnamese Restaurant for dinner last Friday night. We ordered 10 different items from their menu. Food was ok. We calculated the total price and shared among ourselves. I went to the cashier to pay the bill at the end. The...cashier overcharged us $10 more. I was surprised and asked the cashier to print out the receipt for me to check. He was reluctant to do it at first. I asked him to give me the menu so I could calculate the total price again with the calculator on my mobile. The cashier then said their prices in their menu were outdated and not correct. Their prices have already increased. We again requested the cashier to print out the receipt to check. We noticed that this restaurant secretly added $1 to each item that we ordered from their menu. Hence, an extra $10 charged to our table. We complained at the cashier saying they shouldn't cheat customers this way. The Vietnamese chef or boss came out from the kitchen trying to shut us up as he didn't want other customers to hear about our conversation. He then waived us the overcharged $10 at the end and followed the same price as listed in their menu. It was a bad experience being cheated in this restaurant. We urge all customers to check their bills when paying in this Vietnamese restaurant. Customers....please beware of their dishonest behaviour!!!More

We tried this restaurant several years ago and wrote a bad report. We decided to try it again. We ordered an entree of Prawn Rolls, which arrived after the mains were served! Our mains, a Vietnamese soup, contained devon like sausage which must have been...the pork component, and some beef! The Szechwan chicken was glutinous, very salty and not full of chilli. They were out of wine glasses too! Sorry but we will not go back as there are plenty of good restaurants in our area.More

Haven't been for awhile and won't be back. Definitely not what it was. Had my usual pork ball salad. Not a lot of salad or the usual herbs and the pork was bizarrely sliced and pink(?) Disappointing. Service was also slow. So sad really as...it used to be a joyMore

Unfortunately our favourite Vietnamese restaurant Soul Vietnamese was closed during lock down so we ventured along the strip and had been told that Trang was a good substitute how wrong this was. We placed our order which was nearly an hour in the making and...a couple who ordered after us got their delivery before us but then the faulty towers events unfolded. After they took their meal they returned as it had been wrong they waited again got the new batch all the while we still waiting. After they departed the waiter rushed out as clearly there had been another stuff up. We finally got our order returned home to find our order also was wrong and probably got some of the previous couples. Anyway we could not be bothered to drive all the way back however my wife ordered the Vietnamese Pho Soup Noodles and She said to me that it tasted off i tasted it and nearly gagged and the was definitely off we threw it out. Never again.More

I have been going to this restaurant for 15 years but no more. Today I ordered over the phone takeaway. When I picked up my order and went to pay the prices of items were up to 45% higher than their online menu. The menu...on display at the counter also indicated I was being ripped off. Apart from being illegal, can you believe they will steal from long time customers that support their restaurant during the Coronavirus pandemic. $11.50 for the tiny prawn toast in photo. Shame on Trang.More
