    Food was fantastic! The express lunch set menu is great value for money and a great way to enjoy a team lunch. The service was good, however a few small hiccups as our waiter was new and still learning the ropes, but no major issues and he was very pleasant and happy to assist us.

    I'd been there for dinner before and was happy so decided to go back there for lunch. However, the main food was rather disappointing. Especially the curry was too sweet. Curry itself was too sweet, and on top of it, it was with pumpkin. Didn't even have half of it. Also, Duck with fried noodles was too salty.

    Outstanding Asian style food with brilliant balance of tastes. Unfortunately the food was let down by service that was determined to “sprint us through” dinner in record time.

    Had $75 Banquet and the small bites were so delicious. Mains are a little bit disappointing, the sauce for duck is way too sweet. Didn’t very match with Tom Kha. Service was good I just wish there’s a bit more explanation about each dishes. The side salad was unfortunately not edible. Wish there was more “ salted egg “ dishes but there were none

    While staying at the Quincy, on a visit to Melbourne, we decided to treat ourselves to the Set Dinner Menu and we were not disappointed. The food was exceptional, the service was attentive (but never overbearing) and we could not recommend it highly enough!

    Found Salted Egg after a quick search and was slightly sceptical as I hadn't heard of it before. Upon entering, that scepticism was gone. We were 30 mins early for our seating, which wasn't an issue for staff. Food was amazing and service fantastic. Highly recommended.

    I thought the whole dining experience was very good. Service was notably excellent, the portions were good value for money (we had a set menu), and the quality was also worth going. It did not disappoint, and can recommend. The only thing with the set menu is that many dishes came out at once. Perhaps a little time is needed to savour between each well presented plate.

    A Japanese restaurant with no sake or prawns on Christmas Eve! Also one of the entrees forgotten and brought after the main course. The food was delicious but for the price you expect everything to be done properly.

    Quality of the food did not justify the price. The food was ok and had to wait a long time for each course. We ordered banquet $75 per person, basically the portion for each person 1 oyster, 1 tiny pieces of king fish, 1 tiny piece of duck, 1 shiu may and for main I get 1 piece of duck and tiny piece of fish with rice, the desert is 3 pieces of cakes share between 5 of us. Wouldn't recommend anyone who wants to try Thai/Vietnamese food.
