The staff were lovely but the food was not great
The dumplings And spring rolls were nice, seafood in xo sauce at $35 was quite small and $28 for a extremely bland seafood laksa was excessive.
And top it off Our hot Vietnamese coffee was Luke warm

I don’t mind paying for good quality food but we left Miss Lilian extremely disappointed.

I took my friend to miss Lilians for a birthday lunch and it was perfect. The food so fresh and great serves. The decor of the hanging birdcages quirky. It was overall a great place to take my friend for a special lunch.

Beautifully presented, delicious food, wonderful menu (really need to visit a few more times to try everything we wanted on the menu), gorgeous decor and such a pretty garden setting. Thanks Jayson, Anton and all the staff for looking after us :)

Overpriced street food. There was only two tables being served and the waiter appeared to be not interested in mine. Got desserts order wrong as he failed to listen. That could be understandable if it was a busy day but it was quiet. We had to go up to the desserts counter to order in the end as the waiter did not bring a menu around to order from. For the $ paid the service and food as a whole experience was under par. Food was reasonable quality but I have had better fare in street cafes up the road for half the price.

What was missing was the wow factor where you could have authentic home cooked meals - ones that where you where invited to have dinner with Asian people they would cook delicious meals that are not dumbed down for the public. That’s the experience I was looking for but sadly disappointed as the ambience was lovely.

We had a yummy meal, lots of variety on the menu. Delicious variety of dumplings, crunchy spring rolls. Tasty red duck curry. Seafood in XO sauce was yummy. Loved the sticky rice. Too full for dessert.

Disappointing food. Dumplings were very average, duck curry watery and lacked flavour. Rice was gluggy ( always a concern if an Asian restaurant can’t cook decent rice). However the service was warm and friendly and the setting is good.

I think it is more a daytime venue,loud music ,bright lights and colourful decoration. Maybe for younger crew? Food was delish and large portions

I was looking forward to trying this place out.
The kaffir lime chicken I had ordered had no flavour, the sticky rice cakes were nice, but all I could taste was the thigh chicken. I expected heaps of different herb flavours. Should have gone with the Pho. But it’s to be expected since this isn’t Sydney.

The place was quiet, which was nice. And the hostess was great, she insisted I take a complimentary dessert with me, which was delicious.

A nice location to have a glass of wine and some dumplings. The seafood with XO sauce was pretty average and needed some sort of seasoning. The staff were attentive and did their best during a busy lunch service.

What a wonderful find! The decor is stunning. The menu is beautiful. We chose cocktails for our drinks. The Red Lotus is magnificent! The pork bun for entree was beautiful and the Thai green curry out of this world! A truly special experience. We'll be back!

Thank goodness the food was delicious because the service was not great. The staff were friendly enough but has to be reminded of simple things like putting bowls on the table and bringing drinks. The restaurant was not busy.
Lovely Asian fusion food. A little expensive but worth it.

We were rushed to order as the kitchen closed at 8. As that was the case the 7:30 time slot should not have been available. Spoilt our food choices.

Overall it was pretty good, food was delicious, first person serving was on the ball and very attentive, once he left it changed and we had to ask to have our table cleared and to be offered tea, coffee and dessert. A bit expensive, but would return.
The restaurant looked lovely, nice and clean. The chairs though were hard and uncomfortable, not good for a bad back. Will go back again, but not for a long seated lunch.

A lovely place to share a meal - excellent choice of food (numerous vegan options), polite and efficient table service combined with a bright and stimulating decor. Will definitely come again.

My one complaint are the chairs. In winter they would be so cold and hard, they need cushions.

One of the dishes we ordered (xo seafood with garlic fried rice) was not presented as per the photo of the dish. It was served in a bowl as opposed to a plate and the rice was not fried. Sauce was hardly evident at all and the dish was quite dry. Quite disappointing really.

Beautiful restaurant in stunning location. Shared a starter of Hanoi spring rolls followed by a lime chicken dish and a mixed kebab with noodles. Both dishes excellent

It wasn't bad, but I didn't get overly excited over food. Beautiful spot, but the food was just ok.
Maybe my expectations were slightly high, but apart from the nice presentation, the food was not better than your local Asian takeaway.
