Out there: Moonlight Vietnamese Restaurant | Sutherland

Posted on

A break from our sequence of Japan posts, but still in the Asian cuisine. 😀

I had to after all, I’ve found a delicious place in Sutherland – Sydney, called Moonlight Vietnamese Restaurant, and I MUST share this place with you!

There you will find not only traditional Vietnamese dishes, such as pho, rice paper rolls, and yummy wrap options, but also some Australian fusion dishes and many gluten and nut free alternatives as well.

My order

For our dinner that night, we decided to have as appetisers the Goi Cuon (Vegetarian Rice Paper Roll), filled with vermicelli rice noodles, fresh greens and tofu.

Everything was delicious, and the servings come in a very good-sized portion. My curry was creamy, silk and filling.

I’ve tried my husband’s dish – duck – and that crispy skin was from heavens. He liked this dish so much that he ordered it again the other time we were there!

I had been there on a few other occasions (no photos, sorry) and I highly recommend the place. Food is always delicious, packed with flavour, generously served and staff is very polite.

Ah! This place is B.Y.O for any type of drinks, A$ 2,00 corkage fee.
