Vietnamese
Taking a stroll through Melbourne’s iconic Botanical Gardens always leads back to Jardin Tan. The picture-perfect location offers a vibrant fusion of Vietnamese and French cuisine within a modern Australian setting. The exciting and delicious fusion of Vietnamese cuisine at Jardin Tan never fails to excite tourists, families and joggers alike.

Much like the grounds themselves, as the leaves change colour with the seasons so too does the menu. Ingredients are kept local, seasonal and are predominately grown in the garden. Jardin Tan offers a different experience to each diner – enjoy a takeaway coffee from the outdoor kiosk, a warm and cosy indoor lunch or an afternoon drink in the thriving courtyard.

    What a wonderful venue and in such a beautiful location! I was lunching with visitors from Sydney and wanted them to enjoy the ambience, the location and the food. Nothing beats the impressive beautiful Sydney Harbour, however the harbour was forgotten with all that Jardine Tan offered. Thank you for a wonderful experience and amazing food.

    We tried to booked for hightea but couldn’t find the option on the booking site, called - no one answered. Left a msg - someone called back a day before our booking and sorry that no more high tea bcz they were sold out. They did offer high tea just bcz its their mistake but they wont be served on stand. The savoury from hightea set is not very nice taste. Sweets are average. Their food menu taste quite similar. We had 1 set hightea and ordered 3 dishes from menu: Banh xeo, grilled prawn and Bao. At last , they seem dont taste like Vietnamese french but more like a mexican vietnamese.

    It’s a beautiful spot for lunch. We had the spicy pancake with crispy tofu & it was delicious- a generous serve, but the price has gone up so a little on the expensive side. Service was friendly & pleasant but slow despite the fact there were 4 waiters on. We had to get our own menus & the food took 40 minutes to come out. The black coffee was bitter but the chai was good.

    Fabulous day out. My husband was not over the moon about his pancake. Could have had more flavour it seems. My beef curry however was out of this world. Best I have ever eaten - even in Asia! Cannot wait to have this again!! The great experience was topped off by a gorgeous waiter from the south of France. Garden ambience just lovely! Merci beaucoup!

    Service from the moment entered was faultless. We received an incorrect dish but their response could not be better so we still gave five stars. Food was absolutely delicious. Compliments to the chef. Plan to return soon.
