    We waited for over 20 mins to order then decided to order at the front counter to ensure we weren't late for our theatre reservation. Once the order was taken, the food was brought out quickly and was delicious. Good sized portions, very fresh and at a standard price. A casual and low key venue. It was enjoyable but there are better places in the city.

    Hawker Boys was perfect for a pretheatre meal and quick geetaway. It was fast, the food was great and quite authentic Vietnamese- I especially enjoyed their vegetarian alternatives of crispy fried tofu ( silken tofu covered in a light cornflour batter which is then fried- delicious). Excellent meal and a great way to start off the evening!

    Went here as a group of 4 on a Saturday night, we booked in advance though when we arrived there were quite a few tables free. Service was quick and attentive and the food was absolutely delicious! My partner and I had the spicy chicken baos and mushroom dumplings to start - the baos were AMAZING, the chicken crunchy and well cooked and that delicious spicy sauce. The dumplings were also nice though quite expensive given the number you get. For main I got the chicken rice bowl and I was surprised how much I loved this dish. My partner got a noodle dish that he also really enjoyed. Our friends also loved both their starters and their mains. All 4 of us agreed we would definitely return here in the future!
