In a party of 7 we were comfortably seated in a square booth. My husband and I are vegetarians but we didn’t have to miss out. The crispy pancake to start could have had more flavour, but after I had the mock duck on greens which was delicious, all the meat eaters tried it and agreed. My husband asked them to create a special meal for him as he was feeling delicate and they did gladly. Our friends loved their meat and fish dishes, service was prompt with a smile. Top meal.
Great food and excellent and prompt service. Authentic Vietnamese flavours. It's our second time here and the restaurant didn't disappoint. We will definately come here again.
Lovely food, tasty, well presented, attentive staff and all questions about GF answered. The venue is quite nice and we noticed the quiet acoustics in comparison to most eating places.

It's been a while since I have been to Bay Tinh, since they closed the Crows Nest restaurant but the original Marrickville restaurant still has the magic. We went for my birthday dinner. The food and service was great as always. Thoroughly recommend the cube beef (so tasty and tender), banh xeo (very tasty), salt & pepper calamari (delicious) and prawn bonfire (my favourite way to eat prawns).
The food was excellent as usual. This restaurant used to be a very casual family restaurant with excellent and very cheap food. It has been completely renovated and no longer has that same charm and cosy ambience. Bay Tinh was usually packed out every night but last Sunday, 26 February 2017, it had very few diners. The prices of the dishes have gone up substantially.
We dined here last night with a group of girlfriends. Ordered entrees which were all good except for the salt and pepper calamari, which is labeled as the best in Sydney. Unfortunately this dish was very dissapointing, it lacked seasoning and was soggy and we had to wait a long time for it. Service was slow but friendly. I would come back but won't be ordering the calamari, just a big serve of the fried rice cakes... Yum!
Excellent food and service. We had a table of 8 and ordered a great variety of dishes on a very busy night. The spring rolls in particular were delicious as were the flat noodles with pork. Will be back there tomorrow!
Great authentic Vietnamese food in the urban inner city suburb of Marrickville. Caters to different dietary requirements; we had a vegan person and a gluten free person with us who were well looked after. Very attentive wait staff. Highly recommend it.
The table for 6 of us at the window had plenty of room, very comfortable. The food was as good as expected from other reviews, very flavoursome and well presented. Service great and staff very friendly. Would recommend without hesitation.
