The owner of Three Red Stripes in the Greensborough Plaza, by his own admission, has no experience in the restaurant business but is keen to please. He told us he went into it as a new investment but is now front and centre serving and greeting customers. He invites feedback on the service and food.
The menu is extensive with meals that you would expect at most Vietnamese restaurants. There's something on the menu for people who love or are new to Vietnamese cuisine. We were told that they want to be known for their noodle dishes and their entrees. We chose the Vegetarian and Tofu Pho Soup, with perfectly cooked vegetables. I like crisp vegetables and the soup was very tasty and a generous size. It was packed with a large range of fresh vegetables. We chose the small size, which was only around $10 and couldn't finish it. The large bowl would be impossible to finish at around $14. It would be hard to beat the value for money.
Next time I visit, I'm going to order the Satay Roll for $10. They also sold rice paper rolls, which are one of my favourites. I noticed they had a large range of drinks and also sweet treats for those who would like to indulge.
The people at the booth behind us had Pad Thai which also looked fantastic and was a very large serve. The restaurant was not busy and the customer service was very good. We chose a booth but there were other styles of seating with a compelling large mural on one of the walls.
