Have been here for lunch a few times with work colleagues. Busy with queues later in the week but worth the wait for great Vietnamese food. Order at the counter, take a buzzer and find a table. When the buzzer vibrates, pick up your order and self service on condiments like fresh Vietnamese mint, sliced green chili and lemon. Love... More

After working for 14 years in the city, I only recently found out about this place. And I now go there for lunch, at least one a month. The grilled chicken and broken rice is my favourite dish.

Had lunch today in the Lakeside Joondalup shopping centre upper level food court and thoroughly enjoyed the Hu Teiu Kho - Rice noodles with pork, pork mince and prawns was absolutely delicious - added some fresh cut green chillies...yum. Quick service, helpful and friendly staff. If you are in the Lakeside Joondalup I recommended Mama Tran in the food hall.

Good place for w quick hot lunch. Spacious and clean dining area. The beef pho is good. But the baguette is a bit too bland.

When we first moved to Perth I was terribly disappointed with the quality of the Vietnamese food. We had tried several places in Northbridge, each time terribly disappointed. Then I found Mama Tran. The food is delicious fresh, and affordable. I was also very pleasantly surprised they have another restaurant in the Claremont quarter which never has a line with... More

I thought this was quite a good place for a quick, cheap and relatively tasty lunch at which you can use the entertainment voucher as well. I had the prawn rice paper rolls were quite nice.
