Been here twice. Food both times was consistent. Decor is a bit of a disgrace and restaurant manager appears to be a hustler, I was also worried about the tranny hookers hanging around my car parked outside, but I’ll let this past since we’re in South Auckland.

Would return.

We have eaten at Try It Out many many times so I thought I would add to their reviews. It’s one of the older Vietnamese restaurants in Auckland and undoubtedly the best. Yes, the decor is very Orange and the TVs up on the walls do not create for great ambience. But the food is unsurpassable and that is what it is all about – possibly the best food in the world. The menu is huge just like the spicy salty prawns. Everything is good and each time we go we find another new favourite. The price is extremely reasonable. It is BYO. The staff are very helpful – not all of them have great English but everything about this place is authentic. If you want nice surroundings eat at PHO Saigon in the city, pay 4 times and amount and have very average food. Then Try It Out and see which one you go back to!

First visit & impression was poor, not welcoming or friendly even if English is their 2nd language it was unprofessional.
Didn’t have to wait long for food which was good & it is the only good comment.
Ordered combination egg foo young, looked like a burnt pancake & dry as the ingredients inside.
Sizzling beef was ok but overcooked, arrived burnt.
Chicken chow mein was average.

Facilities are run-down, needs a makeover and no toilet paper.
I will not be returning any time soon.

Service here is excellent. English is obviously a second language to the waiter, but this barrier does not prevent all orders from being on time and correct!

Food is traditional, and served to the highest standard. I have tried, (i think) the Pho Tai, Com Ga Xa Ot, and Cha Gio, all of which were well prepared and are full of traditional vietnamese flavour, as it should!

This restaurant gets 5 stars – Would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is after a decent, delicious meal!

The Good:
Great service, very happy staff and management. Clear menu with English translation and numbers separated into concise categories.
Excellent food had from their on all 9 occasions so far.
To date crispy chicken, Thai salad (chicken,beef,squid) have been favorites. Also their weird crushed ice desert with green jellies in it and coconut, tastes awesome!
QUICK service, we usually eat out, takes 10-15min from phone order, order always correct.
Needs improvement:
This is really minor stuff so I don’t think affects 5 star rating.
The decor is dated but well cleaned. Everything is ORANGE! A bit intense. There is a nice fish display and a developing water feature as you walk in.
