Always delicious! We come here every year and the food is without fail fantastic. We tried two different dishes this time (normally we get the pork stir fry & chicken curry hotpot because they are just so good!) - lemongrass beef & Vietnamese style pork...ribs - both did not disappoint. A side of amazing fried rice. Yes, the service isn’t whet you’ll get at a Michelin star restaurant but embrace their unique ways & just enjoy the tranquil outdoor area, listen to the water feature, smell the roses & see the koi fish in the pond. DEFINITELY recommend!More

Pho Sunday….one must take into consideration that this Restaurant is a fair way out of town and when they only serve Pho once a week on Sundays then one might get afew expectations on quality. Well my score would be 5/10. I ordered a large...Chicken Pho which came out looking great. First spoonful of the broth and it was luke warm. This is a major let down for me as l really do like my Pho to be piping hot. The broth was ok tho didn’t have any wow factor. I had to add quite abit of soy sauce, chilli ,mint and bean shoots to get a desirable flavour. As for the rice noodles l really thought that a restaurant that prides themselves on freshness would use fresh noodles instead of packet supermarket rice noodles. Last but not least was the price. This is by far the most expensive Pho I’ve ever had in my life anywhere. At $23.80 for a large bowl here l could get 2x Pho bowls in Rusty’s markets Cairns for that with change.More

I went to this restaurant twice in the same week as they only serve Pho on Sundays. My 1st visit l ordered sesame crumbed prawns and Vietnamese style pork ribs. The prawns were fresh tho alittle tasteless. The pork ribs were bursting with flavour and...really enjoyable. I went back on the Sunday to tuck into a big bowl of Pho which l was very excited to try as I’m a real lover of Pho. I ordered a large Chicken Pho and fried spring rolls. The spring rolls were fresh, crispy and delicious. The Pho arrived and it looked amazing tho lacked in afew areas. When you only make Pho once a week in your restaurant which is normally a staple in Vietnamese restaurants you have some expectations. First of all it was only warm and not hot. A big let down for me. The broth was ok tho l needed to add quite abit of soy sauce, chilli and bean shoots to add flavour. The biggest let down was the use of packet rice noodles which by the end of eating it was all falling apart. I would rate this Pho 5/10. The service was great and helpfulMore

We try to eat here when in Alice, and once again it was a lovely experience. The food is really great - very fresh and tasty, and the service quick and attentive. It was not overly crowded, which is just what you want in COVID...times. The outside area was not open, but then it was a very cold night.More

I was recommended a visit by a friend who had spent some time in Alice Springs. She described it as quirky and she was right. You will need a car or taxi to get here as it is near the airport (personally, I have had...minimal success with taxis in Alice). The restaurant runs a market garden as well, so everything is lovely and fresh. I felt as though I was back in Vietnam. Food delicious, service efficient. You can sit indoors or undercover outside.More

Ate here twice on this trip never miss eating here. The food is good and the service is usually acceptable. There is such a good vibe about this place. I like to eat outside especially by the water feature but inside it is nice and...cool and of course no flies or mozzies.More

I have found an alternative with the same results. Go to your local servo with $50.. Buy 2 mi gorengs.. Go home and put up Christmas lights.. cook the mi gorengs and eat by candlelight.. Burn the remaining $45 in the candle.

Quirky place but amazing food. The young girl serving us had a great eye for detail and the older Lady who was in charge was great at Keeping everyone on their toes. Food was great. Sizzling pork, pho soup and combination seafood was AMAZING. Totally...coming back.More

Escorted to our table by two staff members… one appeared to be aged 2…the other slightly older. Beautiful decor….consisting of 5G propaganda, lego model of Sydney Oprah house, and merry Christmas decorations. Wait staff appeared to know us better than we knew ourselves. We had...a table for two… or so we thought. Then he appeared. Short in stature and very eager to engage. Initially he sat at the sideline.. not wanting to intrude. Then he regularly and insistently continued to check on us to see if our meal was ok…at times even stroking our feet. Unsure if he was an employee or just an eager guest. He refused to inform us of his name, in leu of this, we named him Stuart Little. Please note that the venue is also hiring - please enquire withinMore

We revisit this restaurant every time we are back in alice and the food is ALWAYS exceptional. Tasty, fresh and generous in size. The owners do their best to both serve and cook, whilst also caring for the beautiful garden so customers can enjoy fresh...seasonal veggies. The wine list is fabulous, the whites are cold, as are the beers. A real pleasure sitting out in the shade, listening to the birds, water features and other diners enjoying themselves. Definitely go to this restaurant!More

Arrived at the restaurant at 5.50pm and told to sit outside. There was only 1 lady I presume the owner running around organising. Took an hour before we could place an order and we were asked to write our order on the docket. Had to...take the order back to the lady inside. This was about 6.45pm. By 7.30 other tables who came in after us got their drinks served and we were still waiting. What an atrocious system this restaurant has if you can call it a system. While we were waiting there were two other tables that walked out. One with four and the other with eight people. DO NOT GO TO THIS RESTAURANT UNBELIEVABLE!More

This family run, authentic Vietnamese restaurant is a destination restraint in Alice. Full of personality, the flavours are rich and the vibe is hot. We had quick friendly service and even an offering of hand wipes from a little helper. We went back multiple times.

Each year on the way North we have always gone to this Restaurant.The food is OK but pricey and the service is woeful ( always the same). Tonight was full inside and a few tables were in use outside,.We arrived at 7pm ,at 8.10 we...got our drink order taken.Our meals came about 9pm ,2 at a time for a party of 6.We then had to go and find cutlery to eat with.They have no staff at all, just the owners ,one cooking and serving and the other doing the drinks and the bills, and they like you to pay cash.Our bill was $332 for 6 people ,with drinks coming to about %80 of that.If they hired a few staff it would be a much better experience.More

Enjoyed a delicious warm pho on a cold Sunday night. I’m glad I ordered extra vegetables. Very quirky decor, lots of recycled things made into art. Nice to sit outside. Friendly couple running it, they are working hard with current staff shortages. Out of the...way, you’ll need a car to get there.More
