    I heard about the restaurant through a gluten free group on FB & visited on a rainy Sunday afternoon. The food was great - i’ve missed dumplings & was pleasantly surprised ! My main was pork belly & rice - very nice & I will visit again soon .

    Service was poor. I put special request as that was for my son’s birthday, but no recognition at all.

    Great food but for some reason the staff were not great. I asked for something and twice the waitress ignored me but answered to my friend. It was the weirdest thing but it made the experience disappointing.

    The staff are always welcoming. The service is always very good and the food is fresh bright and delicious. Really enjoy having dinner there before a concert or show.

    Lovely food, and great location (for our theatre trip) but the service was a bit slow and stressed. Not enough staff on for a busy Saturday night. If they fix that, we will definitely be back.

    Super Delicious food and a delightful Host who made sure we ate well and finished in time to make our movie. Highly recommended! The $39 pp banquet was a perfect way to taste all the best dishes. New fav!! Thank you.

    Great food. Pity my favourite dish Banh Xeo wasn't available at lunch :( but the food quality was good. On a hot day like today, would have appreciated some aircon!

    Considering it’s next to concert venue very poorly staffed and took far far too long for all to be served. Otherwise it’s a lovely place. Need more staff to handle crowds!!!

    Been here a few times, great food. They were busy on Wed night so service a bit lacking. Had to get my own chopsticks and wait to order. Overall good pre-theatre dining.

About the restaurant

Steamy noodle heaven

If classic Vietnamese cuisine is enough to excite you alone, clear your schedule and tell your friends that Chao Ba is next on the list. The welcoming vibes and steamy bowls of noodles created from family recipes will want you coming back for more. Whether you’re gossiping with friends on the casual outdoor verandah or having an early dinner with the fam, you’ll certainly feel right at home.

Find a cosy spot on the couch and warm up with a big bowl of Pho noodle soup or have cocktails and nibbles outside where you can spot the Vietnamese basil and mint growing in the little Asian herb garden. Slurp down some Banh bot (clear shrimp dumplings) and share the delicious lemongrass beef rice paper rolls. With so many yummy dishes on the menu you’ll want to make sure you come with a crew to try everything!

Best dish: Banh beo hue imperial (little steamed rice flour cakes topped with dried shrimp, pork crackling and mungbean and chives)
