A PURE VIETMANESE STREET FOOD EXPERIENCE:

To create something unique, you have to mix things up.

Vietnamese food is one of the most diversified and influenced cuisines on the planet, but at its core, it is a delightful mix of shared native flavours and borrowed techniques. Without its French influence, Vietnamese cuisine would not be as we know it today.

This coming together of two completely different culinary cultures, focused on authenticity, health and obsession to do simple things well, exists at the core of our passion.

At Bon Bon Boy, we love what we do, and we welcome you to our restaurant as if you were family. We hope you love our food and feel our passion for Pure Vietnamese street food.

    Meals were so slow, had to continually ask where they were. Entrees come after mains.

    They couldn't find my booking. Not enough staff and lots of people complaining about the lack of service. We left and went elsewhere. Very disappointing

    The staff were trying but couldn’t meet the food orders as they were understaffed and the online food ordering system didn’t work properly. We ended up leaving before we got all the food we ordered. There was a big event on at Marvel. They were simply not prepared for a big early crowd and should not have accepted so many customers and orders.

    We had a large group of 20 people for a 21st party. The food was excellent. However, we were told beforehand that we would be looked after by Vivien. When we arrived we were not told that we could order food either by App or by menu, my husband and I had told all our guests that we would be paying for everyone but many guests ordered through the App so ended up paying themselves. We were told to order by App but everyone had to use one phone (my husband's) so we could pay for their meal. This took a very long time, since each person had to look through the dishes, select, then pass his phone to the next person. Three of our guests did not receive their meals, including my husband and myself, who ordered 2 entrees and 2 mains between us and only received one of the entrees. A few people ordered via menu and there were no problems. Some of the dishes we ordered were not available. It was such a shame and we felt very bad that some of our guests went hungry. I think that the whole experience would have been so much easier and better if someone had just come to our table, explained that we could order using the menu (which were never given to us, we had to go find them), then we could order all at the same time. We didn't see Vivien the whole night. Such a shame.

    Very poor service, had run out of much of what we ordered, we felt we inconvenienced the staff, got wrong drinks, when we ordered something different as they had run out of what we wanted made us pay $2 price difference, food was ok, experience was not! Would not return.

    Pho was 5 dollars more expensive than every other one I've had and certainly not any better to justify it

    Food was very good. Computers systems are poor. Booked online but restaurant didn't have booking and said that happens a lot. Had to order online but staff had to keep asking us if our order was fulfilled or not.

    Great food, for the price the food needs to be 15% more on plate. Tried veitmaness coffee didn't seem like all ingredients were added, wasn't much alcohol in it. Wasted too much money on that one. Chairs need to be more comfortable. Feels like eating a mall. Not a restaurant. Pity. The table was too small for 6 people ordering four plates of food each. Worth giving it a shot tho because the food is worthwhile. That will hold up for so long tho, before you find somewhere with same food at cheaper prices with comfortable seating and bigger space on table for multiple dishes.
