This is some seriously tasty food, really fresh, really well cooked full of crunch and delightful flavours. Had it twice in a week, even the Vietnamese soft drinks are special. I have found you, I'm not letting go.

Thanh Binh is hands down the best Vietnamese food in Newtown. The starters are the highlight of the meal; the mains themselves are not as good. Also, there is a very limited selection of rice paper rolls that are already made (2 or 3 options). The majority of the rice paper rolls on the menu are DIY!

Stopped by for a late night meal. First time dining out eating Vietnamese in NSW. Similar but different to QLD Vietnamese dining but in a good way. Really enjoyed variety of meals. I liked also how the venue has big open windows at front. Will definitely visit again next time. Very nice staff.

The food here was good. Full of flavour, nice size servings, but not spectacular. We dined here with friends and had the #2 Banquet. The service was a little slow, but the kitchen was extreme quick. The atmosphere was nice with not many people in the restaurant on a Wednesday night. Would I go here again, yes for a nice... More

Had two glasses of white Vrdelho to go with thei green papaya salad (optional with dried beef meat), bun cha (gf liked that best), and a scallop salad with Chinese cabbage (I... More

The food here is good don't get me wrong, but it isn't the best Vietnamese cooking I've had or even close. We had spring rolls, Calamari in Spicy Salt, and a beer stir-fry. All were decent. Ordered the roast duck salad and was a bit disappointed by it. Service lacking a bit and wine list pretty weak. Go if you... More

We have just had an absolutely delicious meal at Thanh Binh. Not only was the food fantastic but the service was attentive, helpful and perfectly timed. I ordered from memory of previous Vietnamese dishes I've had before at other restaurants and was delighted by the serving size, freshness and presentation. We will remember and talk about this meal for a... More

Great food, fast service and friendly staff - a solid combination. Starters: the rice paper rolls were excellent, the quail a little overdone and dry. Mains: the chicken fillets were very good, and the fish dish and fried rice were both very good also. Service was quick and friendly. A good choice in an area where there are lots of... More
