A quick and easy answer to the question: What are the best vietnamese takeaway in Melbourne


It’s often said that those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. The same goes for a venue’s food menu.

Say ‘dinner’ to any Vietnamese and you’ll be treated to an amazing story and a long list of recommendations. As a result, all our favourite places to have vietnamese food are in Melbourne. The food we eat, the places we go for it, the stories about it…it’s all in one place.


Where are the best places to get vietnamese food in Melbourne? Well, there are several categories. Which one you’re after is dependent on where you’re going, what you’re doing and how hungry you are. For example: a simple and fast meal at home after pre-gaming at the pub with mates; a group that’s planning a full on night out with friends; or a celebration dinner for an important occasion (birthday, anniversary, anniversary night ). Regardless of your needs and situation, we’ve got you covered.


As a community and with the help of our community members, we’ve put together this guide. We cut all the information and recommendations from thousands of articles on the web, cross-referenced everything, and collated it into one place where even you can learn about all the different varieties of vietnamese. Don’t be afraid to try new things–there’s always a reason for change in this world.

Now, get your chopsticks ready, and dig in.


The first thing to ask is: What’s your budget? This can determine the type of food you eat and how adventurous you’re feeling. For example: if you want a vietnamese soup for dinner but don’t have much money for food, the best option is pho (fresh noodle soup). It’s cheap and delicious with a lot of variety–vietnamese people eat it all across the country so it’s totally local. However, if you have a budget of $10-15 and want to try something a bit more adventurous and exotic, there are many other dishes to try.


The second thing to ask is: How much time do you have? If you’ve got a lot of time on your hands and can plan ahead (e.g. plan ahead to prepare food at home), the best place for vietnamese food is generally in Footscray or Springvale. Places like Ktown, Little Asia, Jardine’s Bazaar and even a restaurant in Frankston can be found on our list.
