If you've worked up an appetite bargain shopping at any of the many factory outlets of Alexandria and feel like something delicious and fresh for lunch or dinner, head to Nguyen Bros Vietnamese Eatery.

Situated on Fountain street, you'll walk up a few steps from the sidewalk (wheelchair accessible from the next door) and into an airy, modern, light-filled space, with high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows. The walls are adorned with colourful rooster paintings for you to admire while you enjoy your food.

Place your order at the counter before you find a seat. There's ample seating available, including counter tables facing away from the rest of the tables and chairs, perfect if you are eating alone or prefer to look outside while you eat instead of at other diners. We found a table on the main floor, as there were a few of us.

Their menu is versatile - There's something for everyone - vegan, vegetarian, meat and seafood dishes, including popular authentic dishes such as Pho soup and Bahn Mi- Vietnamese Bread Rolls.

For entree, a few of us enjoyed the Goi Cuon, fresh vegetarian rice paper rolls ($6.00 for 2) They were delicious - Packed with vermicelli noodles, veggies and fragrant basil, with a zingy peanut satay sauce to dip them in.

For main, I ordered Bun Vermicelli Salad with crispy tofu ($13.00) There are nine options available for this dish alone. Other options available include vegetarian ($13.00) sugar cane prawn ($15.00) wok-fried sliced beef with lemongrass ($14.00), BBQ Pork ($13.50) and more. The salad is crispy, crunchy, and fragrant.

We enjoyed fresh, icy cold coconuts with our meals, ($6.00 each.) You could also choose one of their fresh juice options, or a beer if the mood strikes you.

We didn't have dessert on this occasion, however, you can ask about their daily dessert specials as these aren't listed in the menu.

The staff are efficient and friendly and kindly take the time to make sure your order is correct. The location is easy to get to, making this a perfect lunch or dinner spot when you're next in Alexandria. (They have another eatery located in Maroochydore, QLD).

You'll most likely need a few visits to try the variety of exciting dishes here. Takeaway is also available and there are gluten free options.

This is a great place to enjoy value for money, no-fuss, standout Vietnamese fare.
