Our History

This is an ordinary Vietnamese restaurant in an ordinary suburb of Sydney but the original chef had a very distinguished career. Before arriving as a refugee from South Viet Nam, Mr. Tinh Tran had been selected to serve as the Chef for Mr. Khiem Thien Tran, the Ambassador to Taiwan. He continued to serve Mr. Khiem Tran when he became Ambassador to the United State of America and when he became the Prime Minister of the Republic of South Viet Nam for more than ten years.

The talented Mr. Tinh Tran was appreciated for always offering the best from Vietnamese and French cuisines to entertain the Ministerial Cabinet, visiting Diplomats and special national guests.

Arriving as a penniless boat person, he initially cooked for restaurants owned by others, until he saved enough to open this restaurant on November 23, 1988. Originally, he only expected to gain enough income to support his own family and create jobs for a number of older refugee children that he had adopted. The obvious quality of his food rapidly spread his fame and there were long queues at the door. A few years later, he was able to expand into the space you see today.

He is now well passed retirement age and in 2007 he sold the restaurant to another boat person, Harry Hoang, who also cooked at one of the previous restaurants. Harry has taken over the recipes and the kitchen team, and renovated the restaurant to extend the tradition for another generation.

In November 2011, Harry opened a second Bay Tinh restaurant in Crow Nest. New to the Crows Nest restaurant is the wine bar.

Harry’s philosophy is to provide a quality, affordable meal in an informal family and friendly atmosphere. You should be able to take a break from cooking without breaking the family budget. You will note that there is no surcharge for Sundays and public holidays.

As the restaurants are licensed, the beverage service fee for BYO wine per head is to pay for the provision of glasses, washing and commercial disposal of the bottles and any wrapping. With low food prices, we also rely on the small margin on soft drink, beer and wine to make the restaurant profitable.
