Tien Dat Vietnamese Cuisine

Home > Melbourne > Food and Wine | Restaurants
Published September 12th 2011
Located in the heart of Box Hill, Tien Dat is well known for contribution to the popularity of Vietnamese cuisine in Australia. A booking is usually essential, but be prepared to wait for at least fifteen minutes even with a booking. Is it worth it? Definitely.

As an entrée, you cant go past the rice paper rolls. Fresh prawns and/or pork combined with lettuce, bean shoots and noodles, wrapped up in delicate rice paper are to be dipped into the homemade sweet chilli sauce and devoured. Don't make the mistake of ordering a serve to share, as I guarantee you will want these babies all to yourself. You will be left wondering how something so healthy could possibly be so tasty.

If you like a good curry, Tien Dat's red beef curry is up there with the best. The cut of beef is tender, and the sauce is perfectly balanced, a feat so many restaurants fail. The lemongrass chicken is another popular offering, grilled to perfection and served on a bed of rice. There is something for everyone on the menu at Tien Dat, even the fussiest of connoisseurs will find themselves wanting more.
