Forget the plastic tablecloths and lazy Susans that you might find at many other BYO joints.

Forget the plastic tablecloths and lazy Susans that you might find at many other BYO joints in the Valley; the decor at Vietnam House is as fresh as the food. Exposed brick walls, polished wooden floors and modern fixtures create an edgy dining space and welcoming atmosphere. Whether you make it your first stop on a night out with friends or a quick weeknight meal because you haven't done groceries, the menu is packed with choices and will have you coming back for more.
The menu is extensive but standouts for appetisers include salt and pepper squid ($8.95) — you'll taste the first plate, fall in love and order a second, I guarantee — as well as san choy bow ($15.95) and rice paper rolls ($8.95). The flavours are fresh and the meals appear on your table before you've settled in to your first glass of wine.
When it comes to mains, choice becomes even more difficult as you scan the many pages of the menu. Duck with chilli and basil sauce ($22.95), combination stir-fried noodles ($17.95), and sizzling Mongolian beef ($19.95) are merely three great options among many. The restaurant is fully licensed with a wine list specifically designed to complement the meals; however, if you wish to BYO it will cost you $10 for a bottle of wine or six-pack of beer/cider.
