Fodor's Review

Owned by Vietnamese TV chef Luke Nguyen, this little restaurant with bright red walls and lanterns is popular with his legions of TV fans. Diners should always start with the country's great export, rice paper rolls. Here you can have them filled with roast duck, enoki mushrooms and herbs, or prawns and pork. A recommended main is the ultra tasty go chien don—crispy skinned chicken slowly poached in master stock with ginger, shallot and oyster sauce. An unusual but yummy

dessert is the black sesame seed dumplings with black seasame seed ice cream. For the full range of flavors, there's a tasting menu of nine dishes for A$65 per person (desserts an extra A$10).
