The Vietnamese Restaurant is one of the two of our favourite restaurants in Brisbane. Unfortunately the other, the Kim Than in West End has recently closed it`s doors after many years. The Vietnamese Restaurant offers tasty authentic meals at an affordable prices. Down stairs is a little compact & gets noisy when busy. But for the quality of food &... More

Great place with outstanding food. Always find the servers to be reasonably helpful, however the older gentleman seems to be pretty disinterested in helping me with most requests. Must go for any Vietnamese fans

On first impressions - needs a makeover. Air-conditioning vent dirty, does this place get inspected? But looking at the people here the food must be good - the place was packed. Dinner served on the hard plastic plates. I had the Traditional Vietnamese Clay Pot it was tasteless - partner had a prawn dish and he said it was excellent.... More

I reviewed The Vietnamese a couple of years ago and have continued to visit them every couple of months since. Yeah, their food is pretty good. Lately though, I've found my dining experience here has been left wanting. The food is still great but it's just the ambience has left me a bit let down. Guys, you seriously need to... More

Nice food, but the female waiter was a bit s**t faced (for some reason). The place was easy to find as its just opposite Chinatown gate, but parking can be a nightmare.

I've been twice now with larger groups. Reasonably timed wait for food, good food with very helpful staff who go out of their way to assist you and your group.

If you are into Asian Food, I would highly recommend this place. It is busy for a reason but it has seating upstairs and service is not an issue when when they are busy.
