I have been coming to Five Star for just over 2 years now and every time is great. The crispy squid is amazingly good with the best batter. The fresh spring rolls are a must try as well.

Booked a table for 3 on Sunday night at short notice. We arrived and they asked us to sit against the front windows next to the door - we asked to be moved some place more private. Sitting at our new table, our orders were taken promptly. We ordered fresh spring rolls, fresh shrimp rolls and deep fried squid as... More

Had a tasty meal, that was delivered quickly in this very busy establishment. Although we had not booked, but were made very welcome and seated straight away.

I joined some colleagues at this restaurant recently. It was really fun as we chose two of the banquet menus. There was a huge selection of food and it just kept coming and coming!. Most of it was very tasty but, I think, rather modified for local taste as opposed to authentically Vietnamese. So if you're wanting the full Vietnamese... More
