Without fail, our group goes to Tran's to celebrate the Lunar New Year with a banquet. This year, it was last Saturday night.

Chef Lanna served up a delicious banquet menu, consisting of -

Arrivee - Chargrilled Black Sesame Rice Cracker
Entree - Ginger Scallops - grilled Tasmanian sea scallops; and Chef Lanna's Chicken Salad - with special sesame and peanut oil dressing
Mains - Hanoi Fish - fresh trevally marinated in turmeric; Organic Goat Curry - mild dry minced goat with black sesame rice cracker and crumbled French goat's cheese; Hanoi Pork Ribs - twice baked with coriander and peanut sauce: Brown Buddha Rice - with mixed vegetables wok tossed in ginger and soy sauce.
Dessert - Lanna's Childhood Tapioca - with lotus seed and sweet banana, and ice cream
See the photos

We had our own private room for 14 upstairs which added to the conviviality.

Bring your own wine - in our case it was sparkling.

We were the last to leave, which turned out to be a good thing because I had a chat with Lanna and wished her a happy new year. She showed me photos of her dog Simba - it is, after all, the year of the dog and I am sure that Simba will receive the very best this year. See photo of Lanna with photo of Simba on her phone.

I am already counting the days to next year, although we will go sooner than that to taste other dishes on the menu, and reprise our favourites.

I have been going to Trans with my family from when I was little even celebrated my 18th Birthday there! Have always loved the food and always make sure dad orders the Crispy Pancake and Pork Ribs whenever we go ... and dad always makes sure he orders the quail. Great restaurant for family dinners or a casual catch up with friends. 100% worth a visit, just don't forget its BYO.

We have enjoyed this excellent restaurant since we moved to Mosman nearly 9 years ago. Lanna’s cooking rarely fails, and the service is always good. Particular favourites are the Vietnamese ravioli, Twice-cooked quail, crispy rice pancakes, boneless crispy duck, lemongrass & ginger chicken & Hanoi pork ribs. We really must try some of the other dishes, but our favourites are so good! The purist might complain about the low chilli heat, but that suits us fine.

Worth a visit. Bring your own alcohol. We had a set menu for 6 which was very nice. Food delicious and good varied choice. The waitress explained the dishes and advised us what to put with what to bring out the best flavours. Enjoy!

It might be expensive but, I suppose, it is in Mosman. The food is fresh and first rate but a bit expensive. Having said that, you get what you pay and fresh is best
