Sydney is home to many Vietnamese restaurants and in this article we hope to have a listing of some of the city's very best Vietnamese establishments. Key Vietnamese dishes include noodle soups such as Phở, rice dishes such as Cơm tấm, Sticky rice dishes such as Bnh chưng, pancakes, wraps and rolls such as Bnh xo, Bnh cuốn and Chả gi. Popular desserts and sweets include Ch and crme caramel.

Sydney is home to several Vietnamese Restaurants, I would estimate at least 150 establishments are currently open in and around the city, so creating a listing of the top 15 or so, is not an easy task. Given we probably won't mention everyone's favourite, you will have a chance to contribute to this listing also.

Our WeekendNotes team have already recommended the following establishments; Miss Saigon Vietnamese Restaurant, Miss Chu Vietnamese Restaurant and Pho An Vietnamese Restaurant.

Other Sydney highlights include Pho Sam Noodle House in Epping for their nourishing Phở dishes and noodle soups. Most dishes are priced between $10 and $15. This is a homely eatery which is family run and while it is not 5 star, you can expect a decent quality meal here. This establishment is usually packed with regulars towards the end of the week.

Speaking of nourishing Vietnamese cuisine, Nourishing Quarter in Redfern is another great establishment. Here, the vegetarian cuisine is moderately priced, and the menu features both Vietnamese and Latin American influences. The 'Three Sisters' rice paper roll dish is quite popular, as is the Phở and the 'Pretty Dumplings' dish. This is a great family establishment for either lunch or dinner.

Red Lantern in Surry Hills is a trendy Vietnamese establishment. SBS star Luke Nguyen is behind this multi awarding Vietnamese restaurant which serves traditional dishes such as Mi Xao Voi Vit Quay (roasted duck), Xuong Suon Voi Artiso (free range pork ribs braised in soy, chilli and garlic) and Cari De (goat meat in with turmeric and coconut milk curry). Most mains are priced around the $35 mark here. There are tasting menus priced at $65 per person also.

There are of course, many more great Vietnamese establishments in Sydney, so if you know of a great cafe or restaurant which serves authentic Vietnamese cuisine, please let us know about it by leaving a comment.

As always, we look forward to your feedback.

or the fairly new Pho James 304 Illawarra Road Sydney NSW 2204

I am surprised why Phamish Vietnamese Cafe is not listed here. I'm a sucker for Vietnamese cuisine and go everywhere to try some good dishes and I always go back to Phamish.
All the dishes are delicious and so affordable.
248 Palmer Street, Darlinghurst.
