Vietnamese Food in Sydney
There’s a big Vietnamese community in Sydney that has brought their delicious food with them.
There’s amazing Vietnamese food scattered around the city but Cabramatta is definitely a neighbourhood with some of the best Vietnamese food you can find.
Authentic Vietnamese food, flavours and dishes without taking a plane ride to enjoy.
Cafe de Palm
117A John St, Cabramatta NSW 2166
Got to start this big tour with spring rolls. Crispy spring rolls with a really nice vegetable filling.
Next up is Banh Knot, which is a small shrimp coconut pancake-like thing. It’s served with fresh veggies and a tangy, slightly spicy dipping sauce.
Really good, really refreshing, and the coconut flavour surprisingly goes really well with the sauce and everything else.
Last thing we tried at Cafe de Palm is the Viet style pancake with pork & shrimp.
It’s a thin pancake with bean sprouts, pork and shrimp inside. Seasoned with fish sauce and other flavourings.
Super light and easy to eat.
2/85 John St, Cabramatta NSW 2166
A small hole in the wall at this alley is KK Bakery. They make some great Banh Mi which I reckon you need to try if you’re in the area.
I got the pork Banh Mi with extra pate. The bun is so good here, crispy exterior, soft interior and the pickled vegetables bring everything together.
All for only $4!

Time to wash all that food down with an iced Vietnamese coffee.
Go to Cafe Pho for some seriously sweet and strong coffee. The blend of a dark roast with condensed milk makes a big sugar and caffeine high.
Pho Tau Bay
12/117 John St, Cabramatta NSW 2166
One of the OG pho restaurants in Sydney, Pho Tau Bay is a local classic among the Vietnamese community.
I ordered the beef combination pho, where they have slices of raw beef, beef ball, beef tripe and a bunch of herbs.
The broth was rich with a beefy flavour, but still distinctively light. (What a good bowl of pho should have)
Pho Tau Bay is a must visit for pho fans.
Phu Quoc Restaurant
11/117 John St, Cabramatta NSW 2166
Right next door to Pho Tau Bay is Pho Quoc Restaurant, where they make some really delicious rice paper rolls.
You wrap them up yourself. Don’t worry, all you have to do is put a bit of everything they give you on the rice paper before wrapping it.
Oh and don’t forget to wet the rice paper with the water they provide you.
