Very tasty share appetisers. Service was great as they spread them out for our family of 12 people. No problem to bring 12 of each appetiser. Food was enjoyed by young and old. Smiling staff faces were appreciated, but always just in the background.

This place is fantastic. Food is amazing. Staff are always friendly. It's on the pricey side, but the dishes are not like anywhere else, so I feel it's well worth it. We booked online with Quandoo early that day and even though Quandoo "confirmed" the booking, the reservation was not made. So we got the worst table in the restaurant... More

Vietnamese food is light flavoursome and not oily That's why we like it so much. Bau Truong does it so well with lots of interesting dishes neatly served at reasonable prices. It can get a bit noisy especially on weekend nights when groups go out and conversations get animated. But always well worth it Recommended

We were looking for a place to eat on the way home from the races and decided to try Bau Truong after reading some reviews on Trip Advisor. It was early on a Saturday evening so were lucky enough to get a table. We ordered a few dishes to share and everything was fresh and delicious. Prices are reasonable too.... More

Great value food and amazing choice of fabulous dishes. And BYO to boot at only $4 charge each. We tried Five-Spice Duck Salad; Snapper on Tamarind Sauce; Duck with Chinese Herbs; Chargrilled Pork Chop; Pork Spare Ribs and Crab Meat Fried Rice. All delicious! Apparently this is expensive for Vietnamese food around here, but at $35 each it was amazing... More

We called in here on the way back from the airport as we were advised by local friends to dine here. I have never eaten in a Vietnamese restaurant before and I am officially a convert. This was one of the best meals I have ever had. We had the chicken with XO sauce and Pork Belly with Shrimp paste... More

I must confess - I have a problem... I'm a pho freak. Generally I'll only get pho and I'll judge a Vietnamese restaurant based on that alone and I'll travel a long way just to do that. Only one problem - these guys don't serve it, or if they do it was listed by a name we didn't recognise. My... More

I recently booked Bau Truong for a work function. I had the pleasure of dealing with the owner Michael. Throughout the week, he continuously made contact to ensure all our requirements were met. From our phone conversations, he was more than accommodating. We were greeted at the door by friendly staff who took us upstairs to be seated. Shortly after,... More

Second time I have been. Both times absolutely delicious. Went with a big group and all the dishes were, without exception, fantastic. Fresh and flavoursome. Staff spot on too.

The menu is huge! You could only order all the entrees and that'd be too much food. Pages of choices. Can be confusing, but just to the specials page...all the great dishes are here! We've been a few times for dinner and loved it each time!
