Also known as Tay Do, TD Rolls is a modest little place along Hookings Terrace at Woodville Gardens that specialises in the Vietnamese meat rolls known as Banh Mi. When ordering their Banh Mi, you can opt to have them as-is or with a spreading of pate for a more authentic taste.
The lemongrass chicken in the Lemongrass Chicken Roll was cooked just right, with a nice degree of lemongrass flavour. The various vegetables added an element of freshness and the baguette the ingredients were served in was not too tough.

While we would have desired a bit more meat in the Crispy Pork Roll, the roast pork was done well. We also liked that the pieces of roast pork had a good amount of crackling to act as a good contrast to the flesh.
For something a bit unusual there is their Meatball Roll with filling consisting of sliced up pieces of meatball. Compared to the Lemongrass Chicken and Crispy Pork Rolls, the filling was at room temperature, giving it a slightly fresher flavour.
Their Combination Roll featured a combination of Red BBQ Pork, Vietnamese pate and the meatball filling from the Meatball Roll. The taste of the Red BBQ Pork reminded us of the Chinese dish Char Siu. All their Banh Mi included chilli sauce which notably packed a fiery punch.
One of the dishes not focused on Banh Mi, their Spring Rolls were fried to golden brown with the filling having a delectable savoury flavour. The size of their spring rolls was larger than the ones at other outlets.
Another option that can be ordered as a snack, their Vietnamese Sausage had spices that reminded us of the sweet-savoury flavour of Chinese Sausages. The meat was minced up thoroughly to give the sausage a meaty texture and it was deep-fried to give it a bit of crispness.

The ambience of the store is what you would expect from a takeaway outlet with their dishes primarily intended to be ordered for takeaway. If you have a craving for Vietnamese Meat Rolls, consider giving TD Rolls a visit.
