Fantastic place to go with friends, the food was amazing and so was the service. We will definitely be going there again. Crispy pork belly, duck salad and the orange glazed prawns are an absolute winner. A must try.
Wait staff were very attentive in a good way, and all of the food was delicious, especially the crispy pork belly and the pancake. I would definitely go back!
Wonderful food and service! Absolutely a must visit for the food, as it is very original. The setting is very classy and super funky. This is not our first visit or last, as we keep returning.
I came here with my boyfriend last night, the atmosphere and ambience was warm and friendly. Perfect for a casual Friday night dinner. The food was quick to arrive and we were well looked after by the very attentive staff. Will definitely return!
The food was delicious, packed with flavour and beautifully presented. Betel leaf roll was really nice and exotic. Orange prawn wrapped in crispy shredded pastry and glazed in home-made sauce was so yum as was the smoky grilled pork chop. Paired with the beef salad tossed in a zesty dipping sauce was just a perfect match. For desserts, frozen pyramid was the winner and ginger ice cream was delightfully tasty. Good ambience, friendly services, we will be back.
Tasty food and very good service. I was pleased to discover that despite Bau Truong being sold, Element V as the new incarnation has retained plenty of the most popular dishes and all the staff. I'll be back :-).
Excellent food and friendly staff. Continuing all the great features of the restaurant formerly known as Bau Truong. Don't be misled that the restaurant has closed down, it may have another name but the food is just as good and the ambience and beautiful tableware have been kept. A surprise bonus last night (and for all this weekend) was 20% off for Father's Day. We had a great night, and will keep coming back.
Went here with the family last week for dinner so got to try a bit of everything, everything was packed with flavour and the dishes complemented each other, capped off with a well rounded dessert menu. Some highlights was the orange prawn, the fried barramundi, sour soup and the sorbet pyramid, would definitely go back again to try everything!!!
Im a customer of the previous restaurant and decided to take my mother with me to try out the new restaurant's food, and it did not disappoint. My personal favourites from last nights dishes were the sweet and citrusy blend of vietnamese cotton candy and passionfruit in the frozen pyramid dessert and the generously portioned deepfried barramundi.
Great menu, lovely food. We will be returning soon. Formerly Bau Trong, but just as good. The ladies serving were lovely & welcoming. Marrickville needs this more up market dining experience.
