We loved the Vietnamees food and dishes. Good service. Nice ambiance but noise level too high. Difficult to have a conversation with my partner without yelling at each other.

What a great meal - we will definitely be back. Have already recommended it to family & friends & they have not been disappointed. Make sure you book on the weekends as it's very popular. Meals were a good size & medium range price wise....More

We walked past Banana Palm over several days and didn't even realise there was a restaurant there until someone else suggested we try it. Beautiful Vietnamese food served by lovely staff in a tastefully decorated restaurant - defintetely worth another visit

Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the
smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi
Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs
that does not have big waves, making it an excellent
family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right
across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens
in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night
of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity
