Always a great place for a get together. The food is wonderful and the service is attentive. The duck curry is just unforgettable. And a lovely array of ceramic plates and bowls to eat from
Food was exceptional! Such care and attention to detail- really enjoyed it. Great atmosphere, lovely service, delicious food, couldn't ask for more. Feeling I'll be a regular!
Excellent food and service in stylish surrounds. The whole barramundi was amazing, all sauces exploded with flavour and all dishes served with mountains of fresh greens.
Great food and service.Not the cheapest Vietnamese in town, but an interesting menu that goes beyond the classics. The entrees are a standout. Lovely bowls too!
We had a most enjoyable night out in your restaurant. The food, presentation, portion size, atmosphere, cleanliness, were highly appreciated. The head waiter was most helpful. I am so sorry that I didn't ask for his name! He suggested our entrée sizes as there were 5 of us. He even helped to take a group photo so that I could post it on FB! We appreciated the cold water offered and the fact the icy water had ice in it was really good as yesterday afternoon was hot. The other wait staff were good as they continually filled our glasses. The wet hand towels were gratefully received as we all had sweet sticky dipping sauces on our fingers! The only minor drawback to the night was that our plates needed to be changed and this wasn't done unless I asked for it. The reason being was we ordered chicken and pork chops which both have bones. These bones got in the way on our small eating plates when we tried to eat our noodles or beef cubes. We had as our guests one from the USA and two from interstate. They all liked the food and the service. So we'll come again. We don't live locally but we'll make every effort to come back as often as possible. Thank you. Regards, Myrtle Lau.
Bau Truong remains one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in the inner west, especially if you can't drive to Cabramatta. The food is authentic and interesting, the choices are expansive. The wine menu is good, though corkage a little steep. The service is good, though it can be a little slow for large tables on a busy night. Highly recommended.
The food is deliciously fresh and the dishes arrived with service that was sensibly paced to ensure that you could savour the food- not rush it. There was a bit of a mix up with the rice that arrived with the last of the main meals, making it a little redundant - the waitress needing to be reminded that we had ordered rice ... the same waitress mixing up our dessert order with a 'trio' of ice-cream and not the 'taro' we had ordered. This was understandable as the restaurant was quite busy - we were just a little disappointed that she did not offer to fix the problem. The restaurant is excellent nevertheless and the menu is extensive. We have visited this restaurant a number of times and we are always impressed.
The Vietnamese "Tapas" style of small entrees for 2 people was great to get variety in our birthday dinner. Served not too fast in appropriate compatible flights of say 2 choices at a time. So much to choose from - all are favourites really. Service super friendly - even the owner does menial jobs to help his staff when very busy or swapping Champagne glasses for the normal ones when he sees a bottle in the ice bucket whilst passing by. Lots of topping up your water glasses and swapping plates for most courses (must be a big dishwasher!). Nothing is too hard eg swapping prawns for the calamari in the salt & pepper item on the Menu. Ate heaps for special meal ans 4 people cost around $145.
Our party of four consisted of two who had eaten there before and two first timers. Needless to say as one of the first timers my partner and I will definitely return. The menu is extensive, creative and above all delicious. Service is attentive and the timing impeccable. Serving size is spot on. The Fish coconut curry dip with sawtooth herb and a Vietnamese sesame rice cracker was a highlight as was the Smoked duck with a spicy seasonal fruit salad. Main course standouts were the Chicken and Sticky Rice and the Pork belly with chilli and herbs. Overall a great place to eat.
Decor is nice, food is good and portion is reasonable. Services are rather slow may be due to a busy Saturday night. Staff are not very well trained though generally are friendly. A waiter who served us the food couldn't tell the name of the dish he served and didn't make an effort to find out or seek help from his colleague. Good selection of choices on the menu. However, it would be ideal if photo of food is provided on the menu especially to the non-ethnic Vietnamese. Generally a good experience. Strongly recommended.
