  1. Cafe O-Mai

    Annerley, Brisbane, Queensland

    O my! It’s a refreshingly modern Vietnamese dining room that’s cheering up a grey corner in Annerley. We like that you can sit down for brekkie to both sweet corn and zucchini fritters as well as a bowl of pho. If you thought the crispy baguette half of a bahn mi was the only thing the French left to Vietnamese dining, you’re in for a treat. They also left coffee behind, so the Vietnamese gave the nectar of the caffeine gods their own sweet twist, and you can try a traditional version at Cafe O-Mai - condensed milk on the bottom, coffee in a drop filter on top and ice ready to stir through.

  2. Tan Thanh

    Inala, Brisbane, Queensland

    Tan Thanh is located on the outer edge of Inala shopping centre, but don’t let that deter you, it’s always tossed around in the battle for the title of “best pho in Brisbane”. It’s fitting that the dining room is never quiet - staff buzz efficiently around packed tables in the most gracious way possible. Of course, the beef pho with braised brisket is at the top of everyone’s list but the fresh rice noodle soup with sticky pork hoc and the breakfast congee are worth writing home about, too. Note: The DIY pork rice paper rolls are a bit of fun for the family.

  3. Little Saigon Grill

    Brisbane CBD, Brisbane, Queensland

    Little Saigon’s shift to its Adelaide Street location has delivered a fresh new look, but the kitchen’s still serving the same wholesome lunches we know and love. There’s a bustling banh mi station down one end of the restaurant (hello, house-made chicken liver pate) and an a la carte order counter at the other. Alongside the pho, there are steamed rice buns, vermicelli noodle salads and a Vietnamese take on Pad Thai. We love that the takeaway packaging is eco friendly and the serving ware is sourced through Oxfam.
