I've walked by this restaurant a few times but never noticed it. Went there in March 2017 for the first time with two others. Everything was amazing, the service, the atmosphere and the food. Can't fault this place, superb.

This restaurant was our regular since it opened some 20 years ago. We left Sydney some 14 years ago and whilst visiting we decided for nostalgic reasons to visit one of our favourites of the past. We were not disappointed at all and the food remains fresh and flavoursome. We had our old favourites which included the twice cooked quail,... More

We went with some friends on a Tuesday night. Trans is an institution in Mosman having been there for more than 20 years. Whilst I was informed it was one of the better Vietnamese restaurants in the area unfortunately I was disappointed. The food was not very authentic and also lacked taste. For those who like good and fresh Vietnamese... More

We had a Christmas Party here for eight of us, and were allocated a separate room. We decided to take up Banquet 1, and it had two dishes I had looked up as being "go to", namely the Vietnamese pancake and the fish. Both were delightful. As the Banquet is $46 per head, I was wondering how on earth we... More

I dined here early November with my father , brother and 15 year old son. Three things I immediately liked were the vietnam photographs and memorabilia, the acoustics and the lighting. Too many restaurants are dark and noisy. This was a good balance. The service was pleasant and efficient. For entrees we ordered the duck salad, quail and crisp rice... More

I made a booking for 4 people on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy when we arrived at 6.30pm for dinner. We spent quite some time perusing the menu and eventually had to say to the staff we were ready to order. We opted for two entrees, four mains and rice. The restaurant is BYO which is a plus....

Recently hosted a business dinner with a table of 8 people. From the start, we were warmly welcomed and quickly seated. The menu was carefully explained and recommendations were provided given the size of the group. I just could not fault the service. You could easily see that the team at Tran's are well trained, knowledgeable about the cuisine, and... More
