We did not get to eat the food here. The staff member first ignored us, then reluctantly seated us at a table. She then proceeded to talk loudly on the phone for the next 15 minutes. We waved to her that we would like to...order, but once again were ignored. We walked out, should probably have walked out when we were first ignored. Won't be back.More

Takes me back to Vietnam! Wonderful hospitality, quick service, lovely & attentive staff. We really enjoyed our shared plates, the superbly fresh salads complement the very authentically flavoured meat. We had shared plates - fresh spring rolls, chicken skewers, a couple of pork dishes... and...then couldn’t say no to dessert! BYO license appreciated. A great night out.More

Cafe Hung Viet has a great atmosphere, the interior is warm and inviting with mellow coloured brick walls and stylish yet comfortable furniture. We were a table of five and ordered a range of tasty dishes to share which excelled our expectations. First we had...crispy rice flour coated squid which was very tender and served with a very tasty dipping sauce as well as a plate of amazing coated prawns. The mains were all superb and came with an abundance of very fresh salad greens with julienned carrots, peppers, spring onions etc. We had a fantastic half duck that had been marinated in soy sauce,galangai, lemon grass and chilli, a large savoury pancake with prawn and pork belly and fish marinated in turmeric with noodles and green beans. No room for dessert this time but we will definitely be back for more Vetnamese delights next time we visit Devonport.More

My partner & I ate their on Sat night following a recommendation by a neighbour. The food was great as was the service. Only slight negative was the wine selection, which was poor.

I love Vietnamese food. Especially pho. I was happy that I have found a Vietnamese restaurant at walking distance. Unfortunately everything we have ordered were tasteless. The service was good though.

Have been here a number of times since it opened. Quality good, but dishes are small and padded out with salad stuff. You will end up ordering more to satisfy, and the cost higher than anticipated. On my last and recent visit the lamb shoulder...was half inedible gristle.More

The subtle flavours were out of this world and that applied to every dish-not a dud among them.This restaurant deserves 5 stars and also deserves to be ranked in...Devonport's top 10 restaurants without a doubt.Noone else in the village serves food like this-it's unique.If you are nervous about spicy food,Vietnamese is perfect::there is something for everyone on the menu!Try the slow cooked pork rib,the fragrant chicken skewers,the delicious and generous salads..GO!More

This is such a charming place to have an authentic Vietnamese meal. We ordered six of the shared dishes and dessert, plus wine, beer, etc. Everything was delicious, fresh and beautifully cooked. We were a group of four, two of us having visited Vietnam last...year, so this was a treat. Can’t wait for a third visit! Also, the staff were excellent! 👍More
