Yes! We found an Asian Ruby, a Vietnamese gem in Parnell.
Located a few steps below the road level, this is a high-end Vietnamese Restaurant. Nice, cosy and warm ambience and friendly service.
I am not a big fan of Vietnamese food in general (not into their transparent spring rolls, noodles or soup) but love their ‘out of ordinary’ Vietnamese cuisine. We ordered a dish of ‘Flaming Prawn‘ and a dish of ‘Dancing Beef ‘. There were two of us and we shared the meal so we got to try both dishes. They were equally delicious and just the right portion to go with rice. Priced at $33 each dish, price wise, they were a bit on the high side although that was their top price on the menu.
Based on the service and the dishes we enjoyed, we will give this restaurant full marks. Highly recommended even though you may think you are not into Vietnamese food! Well worth the try.
