Thanh Binh on King

Nice clean and fresh Vietnamese in Newtown?

This restaurant is a particular favourite with our family. It can fit a large group well, and there's something for everyone. Let me share some of our family's favourites...

Green papaya salad with prawn and pork
The salad is served on large rice cracker bed. Scoop a bit of salad on top of a bit of cracker and you're off!
Rice paper rolls with sugar-cane prawns
It's a game of roll-your-own rice paper rolls, and it's fun and yum. the serving is quite generous. Sugar-cane prawn is my favourite of all the choices available.
Vietnamese spring rolls with fish dipping sauce
I don't know if you've noticed, but I love deep-fried food. This is one of the best specimens of what deep-fried food should be. It's deliciously crispy on the outside, and it's the most packed spring roll I've ever had. My nieces and nephew love this dish (and so does their auntie!).
Wok-fried diced rump steak with garlic and cracked pepper, with lemon dipping sauce
This is just a very good beef dish. I love anything with extra sauce, so the lemon dipping sauce is a great accompaniment to the dish. Dunk away!
Salt and pepper pork fillets with lemon dipping sauce
Another one with lemon dipping sauce (it is a very good dipping sauce!). The pork fillets remain surprisingly tender beneath the crispy battered exterior.
