Phamish: Vietnamese, Darlinghurst (9 April 2009)

Shop 109, 50 Burton St, Darlinghurst NSW 2010

This very popular Vietnamese restaurant has found more spacious surrounds since it's original location down the road at the corner of 354 Liverpool Street Darlinghurst. It seems to still fill up by 6.30 pm with it's no booking policy and thankfully still make their popular Duck and Prawn Pancakes which would be one of the first to sell out at their previous venue on the specials menu. You pre-order and pay for your meals which means no waiting for bills when your ready to go. Unfortunately I find their seating not very comfortable but I'm suspecting this is to encourage people not to linger and stay for longer than they need to.

the duck and prawn pancake rolls look delicious! hard to tell how big they are from the photo though... is it relatively the same size as those Vietnamese rice paper rolls? if so, that's a mightly pricey roll! lol :)

hi betty, the pancakes are a must have. i think it's one of their specialities.

hi jen, duck and prawn rolls are quite large so it's better value than a normal size Vietnamese rice paper roll. For a light meal you could have probably 2 of them and feel satisfied.
