the staff as always were terrific even though it was really busy
Delicious food, friendly staff, value for money and great vibe. Typhoon delivered in all areas. Our new fave local restaurant.
The food was ok, but the service was non existent. We had to ask for menus, serving utensils, drinks etc. We were seated right by the busy take out window/payment spot, with the window wide open all night, when there was so much space around us.
Fantastic food and drinks, much better than expected. We’ll definitely come back.
The service was quick and attentive the food exceptional! The cocktails were also delicious. Will definitely be booking to dine at Typhoon again:)
Eat next door at Hawker Bar, so all good. Covid 19 social distancing observed and staff ran back and forward to deliver food expeditiously. Thanks!
We have a great time at Typhoon as always. Service was great, food and drinks also great. We will be back again soon.
Have been there a number of times, great food, great atmosphere, great beer, very reasonable pricing, would recommend to anyone.
Always great food and service! My favourite spot in Melbourne.
typhoon is always a terrific place to drink and eat the staff are amazing
Great place, nothing too much trouble. Friendly staff, we were a party of 4 and had a private booth which was nice. Everything was disinfected which is good in these unprecedented times.
Our first visit to Typhoon was one we will fondly remember. From the moment we arrived, the service was good, the food was divine, our location for our table was cosy and nicely decorated. We were pleasantly surprised with our visit to Typhoon and can’t wait to go back again.
We love coming here. Food is amazing and staff are attentive and happy.
Food was nice, fast and fresh. Great service and like a place to eat that is not to loud to talk
Limited Covid menu, but were even sold out of some of those. Service was ok but staff were more focused on their own conversations.
Hi Steve, thanks so much for taking the time to review us. Sincere apologies for your experience. This is not the service we pride ourselves on and we will definitely follow this up with staff to ensure this doesn't happen again. Apologies again and hope we can provide you the service we are known for again soon. Kind Regards, Steph
Outstanding fresh, fragrant authentic Vietnamese food. $60 for a starter, two mains, a beer and a wine. Brilliant value for such good food. I'll be back again and again.

Thank you for providing such a great space, food & service!
The bar staff in particularly went above and beyond to make sure my friend & I enjoyed our birthday catch up & our waitress next door was super speedy and sweet.
Highly recommended! x
Food was delicious and great value for money. Would have liked some “fresh” ingredients (only one fresh salad). While vegetables were yummy they were battered and fried. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Would happily revisit.
Great food and service.
All staff were first class.
Lovely dinner, friendly staff, food was delicious, we will be back!
seating for 2 people near kitchen, was too hot, food nothing spaecial compared to other Vietnamese restaurants.
A regular and love the food however it lacked energy as there wasn’t any music .. plus the loos could have had some attention
Beautiful food served by knowledgable, friendly and attentive staff. Highly recommend.
Was the worst service ever- 40 mins for our wine to arrive- mains arrived before our entree,then told they had run out of a spring rolls and would only be getting 3 and was not taken of the bill. Had to ask for the bill as they cleaned up around us.
It was an enjoyable experience.
Food was delicious and staff were friendly and helpful.
There was plenty to choose from, everyone loved it.
