Entrees, Soups, Dry Noodles, Rice, Charcoal Grill, From The Oven, Classics Menu, Exotic Range, Vegan, Banquets Menu
“The menu is always a good read! I love the food here. It is honest and beautifully done. Sometimes it is disappointing because you won’t get a seat without booking (they’re popular and they’re usually full) but when you do get a seat, the food is worth it!” – Jasmyin Tay
The Vietnamese Restaurant
The Vietnamese Restaurant has been continuously owned by the Le family, who moved to Adelaide from Vietnam in 1975. They moved to Queensland two years later and in 1983 Bich Le opened a tiny shop on Hardgrave Road in West End.
By 1985, it had outgrown those premises, and the restaurant moved to its current location in Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley. A devastating fire in 1997 forced the closure of this much-loved café for seven months, during which time the first floor was turned into a function room.
Most of the ingredients that go into the great tasting traditional meals are sourced locally, including from the Le family’s own farm. Bich Le still works in the kitchen, preparing food for the day’s dishes.
The restaurant can seat 80 people, while the upstairs function room can cater for 50 more. Bookings can be made by telephone only.

“Tasty reasonable priced food. I have not been to this restaurant for many years. It has not really changed since the 1990s but the food is always tasty, the service is forever cheerful and efficient and the place has never lost that certain bustling energy due to the many types of people who dine at the Vietnamese restaurant.” – Paul Sherman
