A nice little place. We sat outside in the corridor giving us a good breeze in a hot afternoon. The food was good and tasty. The portions can be a lil on the higher side so keep that in mind while ordering. The fresh veg spring roll was really good. Will come back

I ordered the beef pho and the soup was very nice. Not much beef compared to other places but considering its at touristy destination it wasn't bad. Didn't rate it higher as noodle was from dry package not fresh.

The food was delicious & plenty of it. My husband had pork fried rice & I had seafood stir fry with rice. The restaurant is very non assuming but the taste of the food makes up for it.

The dishes were really yummy and the Pho is just amazing. I tried fried noodle for the first time and I didn't expect that it was that good! I would recommend this place.

My wife's 50th birthday, and she was hanging for Vietnamese Prawn Spring Rolls, so the previous night I examined Tripadvisor looking for Vietnamese closer to home than Cairns. Saw Lan's reviews varying between 1 and 5 stars. As we could not see a clear pattern we thought "Why not just give it a go and see for ourselves?". Well, notwithstanding... More

The food here is excellent, better then anywhere I have found yet in Cairns. The service is awesome - pleasing the most fussiest of eaters.....I highly recommend their summer rolls and Pho - if you like traditional food this is the place to go if you like boring westernised food go elsewhere....definitely coming back to this one - only went...

Had to wait for ages for our food. Once it arrived it was perfectly acceptable, but that´s it. I think this place has seen better days and unfortunately probably rely on the fact that most visitors are only there for a day and not many regulars.

Judging from these reviews, I am guessing this place has changed owners. There was more wrong than I have room to explain, from off drinks to terrible service, hour long waits and terrible food. I, along with half the place, ended up demanding refunds. To be avoided at all cost.

Thank Jessica A
