My Friend Vietnamese Restaurant, Watson, excellent for families with young children

Standard

The great strength of My Friend Vietnamese Restaurant is that it is ideal for introducing young children to the experience of dining out and trying cuisines from other cultures.

To start with, ‘My Friend’ Restaurant has an engaging child-friendly name.

Parking is close by at the Watson suburban shops. It’s easy and convenient even in cold weather, and the decor inside is welcoming and homely. Booking is not necessary.

It looks like a grown-up restaurant but feels very child friendly. Being a family run business, often the family, including other children, are dining too.
