Went here for a birthday celebration lunch. Many interesting things to order but I chose the lambshank curry and OMG it was amazing - the meat just melted in the mouth and the spices and sauce it sat in was just amazing. A mouth watering delight. I followed it up with the panecotta but would have preferred a whole scoop... More

Delicious food - we choose 4 starters and would highly recommend he BoLa Lot, Smoked salmon roll and the Banh Xeo. We also ordered a Yellowtail salad which was a bit disappointing but maybe we were just full after eating all the other food. Service was good too. I would definitely go back to sample the other items on the... More

I had been here before for a special event, food was different, nothing from the menu, but enough to wanted to go to try from the menu. Like the place, decoration is nice and the plants give a refreshing air to the atmosphere that personally I really appreciate it. We got there before no one else, expecting a delicious dinner....

I have to say that this neighbourhood restaurant knows what it is doing, clean lines, good food, and efficient, friendly service. Certainly a considerable "cut" above the average Vietnamese Restaurant and, it appears, targeted to affluent professionals in this rising neighbourhood. We had a table in the window and two of our party were gently roasted in the window seat... More

We've eaten in Dandelion a couple of times and loved the food. Took some friends and tried "The Sea" Feed me. What a disappointment. Started well with a lovely prawn dish. The kingfish with passion fruit completely missed the mark (poor balance of flavours) and then, when we were expecting the big fish main, we got a plate of fried... More

The food was fabulously fresh and tasty. We had duck rice paper rolls, crab spring rolls, a fish cooked in banana leaf, chicken slaw and a pumpkin salad. Each was wonderful, a delight to taste. Service was good and attentive. The vertical garden was gorgeous adding to a fresh ambience.

Amazing! Flavour sensation. We all (4) had dishes that were absolutely sensational. The food clean and fresh with fabulous flavour mixes. The service was exceptional as was the wine menu. I highly recommend this gorgeous gem to anyone looking for fabulous food in a beautifully decorated restaurant.
