Lovely atmosphere with pretty interior, and lively music to complement the wonderful dining experience. We particularly loved the innovative main dishes for sharing, and felt the food tasted sublime and unique. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience at Paper Plate!

I go to Paper Plate regularly for lunch or dinner as the food is always excellent - the squid salad and pork belly bao are a must order! Staff are very attentive and I love the cosy feel about the restaurant. Fantastic neighborhood gem.

The food was great and the staff were too. We booked for 4 on a busy Saturday evening and at the last minute had an extra person. The staff quickly rearranged things for us. We ordered the chefs menu ($49 pp) with a few changes after discussion with the waitress. It was all wonderfully mouthwatering and plentiful.

Paper plate is one of two worth dining in, in all of Bridge Road.
The food is inspired, delicately cooked and combining the flavours of Vietnam in a modern creative way.
Keep it up!

Tasty fresh food of good variety. More range in the dinner than the lunch menu. Staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. Minor negatives: could be a little warmer inside and other customers can be very loud

The spring rolls were crunchy and served with excellent salad (crisp leaves and fresh carrot), the pork belly rolls in a charcoal (?) bun mixed up the fat/flavour ratio with and crunchy cucumber and mayo type dressing to leave you wanting another but needing to move to the beef la lot, green veg and beef mains. The nuoc nam, fresh well picked salad leaves and herbs all up to a great lunch that was $40 a head including a bottle of wine off the very fairly priced list. A step above the normal Vietnamaes fare in Victoria St and well worth return revisits...even if its just for a quick bowl of pho sitting at the bar. Service is also friendly and a step up! Highly recommended for a low key busines lunch or a catch up with friends.

We have dined at this restaurant quite a bit and love the food. This last dinner was with friends from Sydney and The Peninsula and they really enjoyed it too. So reasonably priced so you can be confident that you are going to enjoy lovely food, a glass of wine or 2 without braking the bank. Highly recommend.

Paper Plate is a special restaurant, friendly competent staff, outstanding food at reasonable prices. There are many Vietnamese restaurants near here, which are fairly interchangeable, but Paper Plate is quite different. The Imperial spring rolls, grilled fish and various sides are must tries, though I really enjoyed the curry on previous visits.

We have heard and seen a lot of good feedbacks about this restaurant for a long time and finally got a chance to try it out ourselves. Went there for dinner with a small group of friends and we were very pleased and impressed with all the food we ordered, from starters to mains to deserts, they were all cooked to a high standard and quality, we were amazed how tasty the food was. Service was a bonus to our visit, staff were super friendly and attentive to our needs. Price was reasonable as well for this quality and amount of food! Got me thinking about the second visit already! Will definitely be back and wish to try more dishes! And highly recommend to everyone!

The food was excellent but the main dishes took a long time to arrive at our table. We ordered four mains with meat or fish to share among four of us and because the other two members of our group were vegetarian they each ordered a vegetarian main. One of the vegetarian dishes arrived 15 minutes before any of the other mains & the second vegetarian dish arrived well after the other mains were finished. In fact, we had to ask for it twice. This meant that the two vegetarians were eating at a different time from each other and from the rest of the group - one finished their meal before the meat mains arrived and one didn't get to eat until everyone else had finished.

Wow! Had an awesome dinner at paper plate for my wife's birthday. Met the owner, Dan who was extremely accommodating and took us through the menu, which apart from maybe 3 or 4 items, was completely gluten free! My wife suffers from celiac disease, so she was pretty excited. We had 2 entrees and two mains and every dish was amazing! Atmosphere was relaxing, clean and modern with a trendy feel. Meal was also very well priced for the excellent quality we received. Will definitely be back!
