Went for Mother's Day with my children, we loved the food and I received a free glass of champagne which was a lovely gesture. Lovely staff, very attentive, would definitely recommend.

Excellent service ! I brought my dog with me to sit on the outside table but my friend wanted to sit inside . Hence my dog had to be tied up outside .The waiters brought my dog water and they kept an eye on my dog when they were walking around . It was not busy at the time. I appreciated their kindness

I discovered a new favourite dish at Paper Plate so it is always difficult to choose between the fresh and tasty options. Service is attentive and prompt. It can get a little noisy but that is mainly down to the patrons on the night. We love this restaurant and return often.

It was very disappointing the squid was chewy and no flavour and the beef was so tough with too much black bean. It was as though all had been cooked days ago. The tofu was totally dried out so there was nothing I could recommend.
Very sorry as we were looking forward to a fun, good food and new experience.

Hi Penny, Thank you for visiting Paper Plate and leaving feedback regarding your dining experience, sad to hear this about our Shaky Shaky beef, as it’s one of our crowd pleasers. If I can kindly mention, we here at Paper Plate pride ourselves on providing our customers with nothing but freshest ingredients in our dishes throughout the whole menu and that everything is made to order not precooked. I can only hope if you decide to visit again the experience will be much more enjoyable. Dan

I go to Paper Plate regularly for lunch or dinner as the food is always excellent - the squid salad and pork belly bao are a must order! Staff are very attentive and I love the cosy feel about the restaurant. Fantastic neighborhood gem.

The food was great and the staff were too. We booked for 4 on a busy Saturday evening and at the last minute had an extra person. The staff quickly rearranged things for us. We ordered the chefs menu ($49 pp) with a few changes after discussion with the waitress. It was all wonderfully mouthwatering and plentiful.

Paper plate is one of two worth dining in, in all of Bridge Road.
The food is inspired, delicately cooked and combining the flavours of Vietnam in a modern creative way.
Keep it up!

The spring rolls were crunchy and served with excellent salad (crisp leaves and fresh carrot), the pork belly rolls in a charcoal (?) bun mixed up the fat/flavour ratio with and crunchy cucumber and mayo type dressing to leave you wanting another but needing to move to the beef la lot, green veg and beef mains. The nuoc nam, fresh well picked salad leaves and herbs all up to a great lunch that was $40 a head including a bottle of wine off the very fairly priced list. A step above the normal Vietnamaes fare in Victoria St and well worth return revisits...even if its just for a quick bowl of pho sitting at the bar. Service is also friendly and a step up! Highly recommended for a low key busines lunch or a catch up with friends.

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.
