Exceptional food and service. I’ve been to heaps of Vietnamese restaurants in Richmond and Footscray (and Northcote) over the years and this is in my top 5. So excited to return. Amazing menu and beautiful service! And reasonably priced. And relaxed.
We were advised of two excellent Vietnamese restaurants on this part of High st, and decided to try The Little Quan this time around, because it looked comfortable and stylish (which it was). We were hoping to discover something new, that we had not tried before (we are form the North East of Victoria where international culinary options are limited). Twenty years ago we had excellent Vietnamese food in Richmond, but The Little Quan far surpassed those experiences...The spring rolls were sublime; crunchy outside, succulent and packed with flavour inside, with delicious dips that subtly increased flavour rather than overwhelmed. We would have been happy with a meal of those alone, however, we ordered the Vietnamese Pancakes (one vegetarian, one pork and prawn) and these were outstanding! Absolutely some of the best food I have ever eaten (and I try anything). Delicately balanced in flavour, a rich variety in flavours (experiment on your plate by taking different salad leaves with the main ingredient; brilliant!) great textures, absolutely delicious! Presentation was superb, reflecting the care and finesse this husband and wife team bring to their work. Thank you to all staff for an unexpected amazing eating experience! Extremely highly recommended.

Great Vietnamese food full of flavour, especially loved the beef in between leaf. Is now our new favourite Vietnamese restaurant
10/10 BBQ pork banh mi. SO tasty, so saucy, reasonably priced, friendly service.
Melbourne Cup Day 2019 called in for lunch. Two others in Restaurant. Service was quick and polite. Food when it eventually came out was delicious. Maybe saving $$ on PH rates but the three staff was not enough to keep up with orders. Lost 7 customers whilst we ate due to lack of service as staff busy cooking.
Will be interested to see on a normal day if staff shortage an issue. But the food was delicious.
