Vietnamese food always comes high up on a list of favourites for the foodies of Melbourne, with countless noodle shops, seafood specialists and pho-nominal restaurants spread all over the Victoria capital. For those out in Footscray, Thein An is the destination of choice for Saigon specialities. They’ve been in business since 1995 – no small feat in the cutthroat world of the Melbourne restaurant scene – and they’ve built their reputation on the authenticity of their food, the friendly nature of their staff and their superb location. Take a trip out to Irving Street, just 30m from Footscray Station, for a meal that can take you from the streets of Melbourne to the bustling waterways of the Mekong delta – just remember to book your table in advance, as they can get crowded.
service was great, restaurant was beautiful with great atmosphere and the meals were delicious and presented well. it was a great dining experience for my family and myself
First time for about three years. Still great - my work colleagues often went for “team lunches”. Our friend wanted old-fashioned Vietnamese food and was suitably impressed.
great food, especially the dish I had which was salted fish and chicken fried rice. skillfully cooked with proper wok breath and specially good with chilli oil
