About Thien An
About the restaurant
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.
