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.

    This is a lovely restaurant for a lunch time in the Botanical Gardens. The food is delicious, and the service is fast and friendly. We love the outside garden area at the back of the restaurant. Good value for money. Thank you.

    Some of the waiters were very pleasant. Nothing else about the experience was positive. The head waiter was rude, the food was average and generally the service was disappointing. It is embarrassing for Melbourne that tourists would frequent such a below oar restaurant.

    We booked for high tea. The seating given outside was not conducive for butter & cream which kept melting, scones were hard and over baked. I’ve enjoyed better high tea for lesser price... this didn't cut it for me!
