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, allowing a unique spin on traditional fare like bánh mì and pho, but also contemporary dishes like chili and lime squid with pickled papaya. Jardin Tan can offer 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.

                                  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.

                                  Love Jardin Tan. Service was fast and friendly, the enclosed outdoor dining area was heated and surrounded by the beautiful garden. Beef coconut curry was delicious and teenagers loved the build your own boas. We'll be back soon!

                                  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.

Starter ish before the bao buns was delicious and the buns nicholson you put together yourself were excellent. The quality of the drinks was a standout as was the service. Beautiful outside under a big market umbrella.

                                  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!

                                  The staff were friendly and attentive, the food was delicious and the undercover outdoor room was the perfect temperature on a hot day. We will definitely go again.

                                  Beautiful setting outside on a sunny day. Food was delicious, I just love the flavours and quality of their ingredients. We had the bottomless brunch which was great value. Waiters were friendly and efficient even though it was a very busy day. Love the French accents. Will definitely be going back

                                  I couldn’t have wished for a better lunch. The Bao Brunch is definitely an experience worth doing. Food was amazing and the service was fabulous. I will definitely be back.
