Have had meals here before and they have been quite good, however recently had a very poor dining experience.
We ordered the $35 bring it on menu and were looking forward to sampling many different tastes. After receiving our first 2 samplers we waited for about 20 minutes before a waiter asked if we were finished.
We pointed out that we had ordered the 'Bring it On' and were given another course about 10 minutes later. Another 25 minutes goes along and our initial waiter informs us that we are done i.e. No more meals, our quota is over.
Despite our protests he was adamant that was it.
Anyhow, we proceeded to go and pay the bill (with no intention of paying $35ea for food) and when we got the bill it included about 4 items we didn't order. It was all very bizarre and the waiter seemed very disengaged.
Long story short we only paid for what we got, BUT missed out on a good dining experience which was what we were after.
The service was poor and although list on the drinks menu, drink selections were not available.
We waited for at list 20 minutes for someone to take drink orders and had to ask for someone to come over.
Always love it here. Peking Duck a favourite. And the curry.
The best food, we love this restaurant. It's one of our favourites - and our go to for girls catch ups, birthdays, and just for a great meal. Minh is a huge part of making us always feel welcome with the best smile, a laugh and a chat.
Tasty food and nice atmosphere. There is a new much shortened menu which we will need to get used to. some of the staff are very friendly but some are very grumpy. Some consistency in service please!
Great food and generous portions with a good selection of dishes. Only complaint is about the service. It was inconsistent and confusing. Had 4 different waiters ask how everything was in the space of 2 minutes, but then couldn’t get someone to give us the bill or order a drink.
Great place, always great food and Sexy Beers. Minh runs a great restaurant and the food is sensational
Always a good place to munch away the traditional vietnamese goodies, particularly the peking duck yum
We had a family lunch and everything was perfect as always !
You could put the best plate of food in front me BUT, if you can’t back it up with service then what is the point.
The food is tasty enough without contention and the sexy beers is very pleasant.
I would of however, liked to have been offered another as it was after all, Daddy’s day and on this day, my god given right.
At least 12 table passes without a sideways glance which would have assured some add ons.
Thirsty, we left rolling our eyes.
Take a lot to get me back.
Sorry mister Minh......feel like your profit margins could vastly improve with more attentive service.
First our booking got given to someone else and the staff scrambled to put together some tables for us. The staff weren’t super attentive and we had to wave someone down every time we needed anything- water, ordering drinks and food. Thirdly, we ordered a duck salad and it never came. We are pretty sure we paid for it but we didn’t notice until afterwards because there were 6 of us. The food was great.
Don’t waste your time. Average food in a “groovy, trying to me Melbourne trendy” dimmed light kinda setting. We didn’t have a waiter the entire time. Had to ask to order. Had to ask for water. Had to ask for chopsticks because waiter took them. Seemed like we were being an absolute hassle to the waiters. They need more staff or happier more hardworking staff as they seemed to have no clue. Go somewhere cheaper and jazzed up I say !
Waitress got the order wrong and we asked for all the food to come out at the same time and it all came at different times, some of us had to wait to eat
The food was not up to the usual standard. Chicken was dry and the beef fatty
Possibly the worst service I’ve ever had in a restaurant. It was actually like a comedy.
We had our menus for literally one minute and then asked if we were ready to order.
Had to ask 4 times where the beer we had ordered was. Asked not to have a pint but got one anyway.
Ordered a number of small plates and some bigger ones. Got one small plate and waited and waited for the others. Everything came in the wrong order.
Then whilst I’m eating a waiter comes up with an eftpos machine and a credit card and asks for my pin!!! It wasn’t mine, we were still eating, and hadn’t asked for our bill.
Service was appalling which was a shame because the food was really good.
Service very slow. Meal arrived out of order after a long wait. Very hard to order a drink and then it took forever for delivery. It seemed there were problems in the kitchen and the waiting staff were overwhelmed. We will come again but hope the service improves dramatically
Love having Minh back in the restaurant scene. Mr Minh is a big step up from Bing Minh in terms of layout, fit out and ambience but none of the deliciousnsss and vivaciousness has been lost. Being no BYO - a broader wine list would be one improvement.
Always consistent and amazing food !
Fantastic food and good atmosphere!
Banquet is an easy option to share range of food with friends
We enjoyed Mister Minh a lot. The food was great and the service friendly.
Order was incorrect. Then delivered two meals and says if the third person wanted the correct meal they would have to wait an extra 11 minutes so they accepted the meal they didn’t order. No compensation. Won’t go back.
Great good and service. The Vegetable Laksa is delicious!
We had a great dinner at Mr Minh. Delicious food. Modern interior. A perfect place for a casual night out.
We have been to Minh’s old restaurant on a number of occasions so we decided to take our 2 Italian visitors to have a taste of authentic Vietnamese food, not Lygon Street. We would recommend Mister Minh to anyone who wants a taste of Vietnamese food.
Always good to eat here, yum.... Footy night so service a bit slow but I didn't mind because that gave us plenty of time to chat. Menu has been changed a bit since last year and new delicious morsels have been added. Peking duck is a favourite still....
Very pleasant and good value. Well chosen range of meals and decent size servings. Worked well with a group of 12.
Great food! Some waiters not so friendly though the ambiance was great!
Mister Minh was a fantastic dining experience for a night out with my sister, mum and dad. The vegan options were delicious! The service was great and the food was very reasonably priced. My only very small criticism was that the a/c was blowing on our table so we were all a bit cold.
Will definitely be back here again!
Our waiter would crack his face if he smiled. But I’m not rating service based on him because service was lovely. The other waiting staff were all friendly and happy. Food was excellent! Must book definitely.
We had a wonderful night at Mister Minh. Great food, service and atmosphere! Perfect for a big group. Thank you
Amazing food, took an foodie friend from UK and he also loved it. Will return many times. love the prawn dumplings - best I've had.
We were disappointed that the staff failed to let us know what the cost of the market price dish would cost us as it shocked us when we received the bill.
Third time we’ve been here and will not be going back.
The service was absolutely disgraceful. Understaffed and the gentleman who served us was abrupt, uninterested in our business and twice ignored us even though we made eye contact whilst signalling him. The food was good but out of 4 starting dishes they came out in 3 batches. Then the mains came out at completely different times and we had to keep asking where the remaining dishes were and had to get the first dish sent back because it was cold.
At the end when paying, I complained about the service and the waiter just stood there nodding his head. I couldn’t understand whether he was acknowledging my frustration or just didn’t care. Joke of an experience.
Loved it. Service was quick, food was fresh and delicious and drink selection amazing. Will be back.
Disappointed with menu changes and service was slow. Still enjoyed food choices available.
The food at Mister Minh is amazing, a fitting homage to its previous incarnation. Unfortunately the service was variable. We ordered a bottle of French sparkling wine but a more expensive Prosecco arrived. We ended up agreeing to pay for the more expensive one, but the staff didn't seem to understand the problem. Oh well, lovely food and atmosphere!
So very very yummy !!!
What more do you want... good service -yes
Great environment - yes
Good value -yes
The number of people we booked kept changing and the staff were very understanding. It was quiet but every time we have been there the service has been very good. My chicken was very spicy but the beef rendang was not. which was a surprise. Very reasonable prices.
I only gave this restaurant an overall rating of good because although the website lists their opening hours for dinner as 'to late' they asked us to leave at about 10:30 to 10:45 because the staff wanted to go home. We had finished our meal but were sitting having a quiet chat as was another table on the other side of the restaurant. Fair enough that the staff wanted an early night BUT the website should not list the hours in such a way.
Took some very good friends of mine to Mr Minh's for the first time. They were blown away by the service and the quality of the food. They said they will be going back.
