We have dined at this restaurant quite a bit and love the food. This last dinner was with friends from Sydney and The Peninsula and they really enjoyed it too. So reasonably priced so you can be confident that you are going to enjoy lovely food, a glass of wine or 2 without braking the bank. Highly recommend.

Paper Plate is a special restaurant, friendly competent staff, outstanding food at reasonable prices. There are many Vietnamese restaurants near here, which are fairly interchangeable, but Paper Plate is quite different. The Imperial spring rolls, grilled fish and various sides are must tries, though I really enjoyed the curry on previous visits.

We have heard and seen a lot of good feedbacks about this restaurant for a long time and finally got a chance to try it out ourselves. Went there for dinner with a small group of friends and we were very pleased and impressed with all the food we ordered, from starters to mains to deserts, they were all cooked to a high standard and quality, we were amazed how tasty the food was. Service was a bonus to our visit, staff were super friendly and attentive to our needs. Price was reasonable as well for this quality and amount of food! Got me thinking about the second visit already! Will definitely be back and wish to try more dishes! And highly recommend to everyone!

great food but a large party in the back room meant that the noise level was intolerable and we had to leave early. Would have had another course if we could have heard each other.

The food was excellent but the main dishes took a long time to arrive at our table. We ordered four mains with meat or fish to share among four of us and because the other two members of our group were vegetarian they each ordered a vegetarian main. One of the vegetarian dishes arrived 15 minutes before any of the other mains & the second vegetarian dish arrived well after the other mains were finished. In fact, we had to ask for it twice. This meant that the two vegetarians were eating at a different time from each other and from the rest of the group - one finished their meal before the meat mains arrived and one didn't get to eat until everyone else had finished.

Wow! Had an awesome dinner at paper plate for my wife's birthday. Met the owner, Dan who was extremely accommodating and took us through the menu, which apart from maybe 3 or 4 items, was completely gluten free! My wife suffers from celiac disease, so she was pretty excited. We had 2 entrees and two mains and every dish was amazing! Atmosphere was relaxing, clean and modern with a trendy feel. Meal was also very well priced for the excellent quality we received. Will definitely be back!

We enjoyed our three different plates, except the coconut ice-cream. When we told the waiter (boss) about it, he said he would not charge us for the ice-cream. He would also tell the chef who made the ice-cream. This is a very generous gesture.

Tasty food and generous portions for the price - would recommend this place to friends. Nice atmosphere and lighting too. Staff were friendly and pleasant. Just a few little kinks in customer service would have made this experience even better. Booked a table for two and was showed the table by the waitress, right next to the other full, very close table. When I asked if we could sit on the other table for two spaced out I was refused. Why? Didn't time it but we sat for maybe an hour crammed next to other diners with less privacy until the other tables for two were taken. Not sure if service is formal or casual. Table service then expected to get up and pay at the counter at end. Noted the prominent tip jar but chose not to tip when the bill is not brought to the table. Finally received annoying message from Open Table claiming I did not honour my booking and had to waste time replying that I did. I clearly stated my reservation when I arrived at the restaurant.
