Perched on the corner of Lennox and Swan she flirts on the edges of Melbourne’s sporting precinct. The dynamic facade, decked out with large open windows and subtle ambient lighting draws you in. The more refined, fresh interior of New Quarter lets you know you’re in for a treat however she still carries the same swagger as her older siblings, pumping good time tunes and laid-back vibes.

Too dark inside and the writing on the menu so small that diners had to have their phones out with the flash in torch mode to read them

We had a brilliant meal. It was difficult to pick the best - but the oysters and beef tartare (the best I have had) were memorable. All the food had amazing and long lasting flavors. Together with the wine and service we had a great lunch.
The only negative was the excessive noise level - being 2 sitting next to a birthday celebration made it very difficult to converse - but next time we will ask for a "quiet" area, or in summer maybe outside.

Staff were friendly and highly knowledgeable in their understanding of the elements of each dish, explained the menu well and gave great recommendations. We had the Squid and Wontons as starters - the Nahm Jim on the Squid complimented the fresh herbs and the crunch texture from the noodles created a balanced, flavoursome dish. The Wontons and the reduction they were delivered in were delicious. As mains, the 1/2 Chicken was tender and the accompanying sauces created a great mix of spice and umami, the Green Curry was tasty and cooked so the vegetables remained tender, but also took on the depths of the aromatics in the paste. We also has the Rice Noodles as a side - probably the highlight for me, as they provided beautiful flavour and were light and exactly what I anticipated in being sweet, salty and sour at the same time. Our drinks (Pomegranate Sour and Margherita) were well enjoyed and not overwhelmingly laden with alcohol - though on the smaller side serving wise, it was worth the purchase. This was my second visit I'd come back in a heartbeat!

Great food, just unfortunate that we were put in a dead corner where they forgot about us to start with. Certainly picked up their act when we said we had limited time but by then we were unnecessarily rushed.

Enjoyed a family dinner here Sunday evening - good selection of meals although 2 menu items we wanted were not available, and a bottle of white wine not available either. We enjoyed all of our selections however the green papaya salad was very bland, and I would not order again. Red curry pork belly and the squid were highlights.

The feed me option is ideal for groups. Allowance for allergies fully taken into account. Having eaten at Firebird we fully enjoyed the difference in the menu.

Lovely food, and fabulous service by the wonderful Grace, who was informative about the menu and gave perfect advice for the right amount of food to order, her service was so engaging and friendly. And just as important - the background music was just at the right level to make the ambience and atmosphere great - far too many restaurants in Melbourne think that they are running a nightclub instead of a place that people go to engage in great conversation over lunch and dinner - will definitely be back

I absolutely loved the food. I was with friends and we enjoyed the set menu. My only complaint was the length of time between courses, as I was on a bit of a tight schedule...however, it was so much fun to be with friends, that I moved things around. I am already recommending it to friends.

I can only describe service as slow, other tables who came in after us got their mains before us, I got a glass but no wine was poured, the waitress walked past twice, looked like she remembered but then walked over to another table, but disappointing as the restaurant wasn't full or busy. Food was okay, nothing wrong with the food but a bit over priced.

Definitely worth a look. Food is an interesting interpretation of Vietnamese dishes and beautifully prepared with very clever presentation (Pho jelly with Beef Tartare as an example). Drinks offer some interesting cocktails and a reasonable range of wine at fair prices. Give it a go.

Went for lunch, had the $69 package which was too much food for us but they packed up what was left to take home. Food was different and all excellent as were there staff. Pleasant space, imagine would be very noisy if full. Small wine by the glass list and wines generally quite expensive. Very good cocktails. Definitely recommend and we will go again
