Van Mai is popular with Melbourne's budget gourmets. Its reputation draws a steady stream of patrons from around the city. The menu is extensive and changes frequently. The traditional Chinese-influenced Vietnamese cuisine features noodle dishes, spring rolls served with lettuce and chilli sauce (wrap them up before dunking them in it), spicy squid dishes and barbecued pork and chicken. The decor is simple and homely with round tables and a Formica floor, but the back wall is painted with a beautiful view of a tropical beach.
