Vietnamese
Typhoon was created out of a desire to bring well priced, authentic North Vietnamese street food to our Bayside locals.
Set in a fun and relaxed atmosphere with an open kitchen, Typhoon is the perfect place to sample a slice of North Vietnamese cuisine or to settle in with friends and share plates, we cater for all.

Our head Chef Thai is a Vietnam national and has bought over not only his native recipes but his family secrets as well.
Our Southern neighbours ‘Hawker Bar’ are right next door so you can keep the good times rolling with Bayside’s best cocktails.

Hawker has been created with the locals of Highett in mind – as locals, we know what you’ve been missing and we set out to create the perfect bar.

Whether it is a cheeky cocktail or an off-the-train wine before you head home, the team at Hawker Bar have just what you are looking for.

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.

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.

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

The food at Typhoon is delicious and represents great value. As someone with coeliac disease, I really appreciate that the menu is fully gluten free. Social distancing was handled well by the team and it was great to be able to support one of our favourite local restaurants.

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.

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.
