Reviews of Rolls On Oxford
There seems to be a lot of takes of modernising the humble vietnamese rolls and turn them into a hip, up-scale takeaway items. Rolls on Oxford seems to be in it from the get go, refurbishing everything from presentation to taste.
The shop only occupies a small space enough for a few people to stand in front of the glass display of this takeaway store, so it makes sense that there is a large, detailed menu posted outside the shop in addition to the one inside. Most of the items on offer are vietnamese rolls, with some salad and rice paper rolls available as expected.
There seems to be a price increase of late, with the original pork roll now selling for $7.90 (during my visit on January 2014). I tried out their pork roll and the size was comparable to Subway's 6-inch sub. The abundant liver pate on the base makes the bread soggy quite quickly (and it also wasn't toasted at the first place). It also made it over-flavoured, not to mention the overuse of pepper.
Food aside, the staffs are very courteous and the food was prepared very quickly too. If you happen to like their food offerings, then they also have a loyalty e-card to make your dollar go further.
Great little spot on Oxford St to grab Vietnamese rice paper and bread rolls. There is no seating and only do takeaway. They get busy during lunch times but the guys manage to churn through the orders pretty efficiently. It seems to be family-run (by a father and son) and they're always very friendly. The rice paper rolls are authentic enough and a lot cheaper.
