I visited Thy Thy restaurant today and I must admit I was very surprised as to how good the food was. My initial reaction was may be one of concern, however as they brought out the food, I was pleasantly surprised as to just how good and authentic it was. I enjoyed every dish. As for the decor and ambiance,... More

We had the vietnamese pancake, sugar cane prawns, prawn rolls, fried chicken, fried flounder and a ton of salad soaked with fish sauce. What a meal. Fried stuff in the tradition of the 60s and 70s when we could grease our gastric bag. Absolutely delicious.

Pleasant staff. Very decent pricing. Most items around 10 dollars. Quality was average for the rice vermicelli, the scallops and the spring rolls. The pho was quite good though. Worth a shot if you're around the area

(upstairs) The service was efficient and quick to the point of being unfriendly but the food was mediocre and overpriced ($47.50 for 2 with spring roll entree, mains and no rice). I first visited a Vietnamese cafe by this name in the 1990s as a ground floor option when it was very popular and the food was better and cheaper.... More

There are many Vietnamese restaurants on Victoria Street Richmond. Thy Thy 1 has got to be one of my favourite ones having dined here for the last 20 years. It's hidden away upstairs near Brunswick Street intersection and on Friday/Saturday nights you often see the queue spilling onto Victoria Street from the long staircase. I recommend the Vietnamese, not the... More

Frenetically paced gem in downtown Richmond. It's the only place I visit to Vietnamese, truly authentic good food.

Cheap and cheerful is almost too generous a description. The restaurant is very daggy, however the food is good. Well priced and BYO makes it a good night out with friends and family. The service was friendly and prompt. We actually ordered courses as we went rather than all at once as we had heard that the food came out... More

Thy Thy 1 has been in business for 30 years, serving Vietnamese food. upstairs at 142 Victoria Street, Richmond, in the heart of Little Saigon. It does have a sign, but look out for it or you may miss it. Thy Thy 1 does have a range of food, but we mainly stuck to noodles. Mine was beef balls with... More

I have been coming back to this place for over 20 years! I have even brought a client here from Vietnam! He loved it! I have also travelled to Vietnam and think it still the same great flavours as over there! As far as I'm concerned this is Melbourne's secret gem!!! If you're looking for something fancy, this isn't it!... More
