Looking for Vietnamese restaurants near you for pho, banh mi, bun cha and more? Here’s where to go for authentic Vietnamese food in Hong Kong.

If we’re talking Vietnamese restaurants in Hong Kong, you know we’ve got to share our bun cha favourite spots for a satisfying bowl of pho and places to pick up banh mi, but we also go beyond that (because there’s so much more to love!). This list spans the gamut from bia hoi bars serving Vietnamese street food and beer, to street-side Saigonese grill houses and upscale French-Vietnamese restaurants.

Vietnamese Restaurants Hong Kong, Vietnamese Food: BEP Kitchen

BEP Vietnamese Kitchen – Nha Trang Group-owned eatery serving homey Vietnamese food

While we were sad to say goodbye to BEP’s K11 MUSEA branch, we’re happy there are still posts in Central, Sheung Wan and Olympian City. This cool and casual Vietnamese restaurant always hits the spot with its soul-hugging bun rieu and tasty starters inspired by Ho Chi Minh City’s street-side cafes.

Best New Restaurants Hong Kong, May 2024: Banh Mi Nem

Banh Mi Niem – Fresh banh mi made with imported cold cuts, pate and more from Vietnam

Fancy bite of banh mi? This recently opened takeaway shop in Wan Chai imports its cold cuts, marinated pork skewers, pork floss and pâté from Vietnam daily to stuff into fresh crusty baguettes. With Vietnam-native Kiki Phung running the store, it’s a reliable spot to pick up some authentic banh mi, as well as cold vermicelli bowls and Vietnamese-style coffee.

Vietnamese Restaurants Hong Kong, Vietnamese Food: Nha Trang

Nha Trang – Popular Vietnamese restaurant chain for lunch and dinner

With eight locations spotted around the city, you’re never too far from some delicious Vietnamese food. Nha Trang brings a veritable taste of Vietnam to Hong Kong, with fresh ingredients sourced direct from the country featured in its dishes. Though this place has been around for quite a while, it still remains a popular lunchtime spot.

Vietnamese Restaurants Hong Kong, Vietnamese Food: Chom Chom

Chom Chom – Black Sheep’s lively Hanoi bia hoi bar in Soho

Chom Chom brings Vietnam’s convivial bia hoi tradition of sipping on cold beers on busy street corners to Soho’s Peel Street. The small yet mighty menu here is inspired by classic Hanoi street food – perfect for pairing with the bar’s wide selection of regional Vietnamese beers. The Pho Rolls and VFC Wings make great starters, and we can’t resist ordering the Shaking Beef whenever we go.

Chom Chom, 58-60 Peel Street, Soho, Central, Hong Kong, 2810 0850, www.chomchom.com.hk

Vietnamese Restaurants Hong Kong, Vietnamese Food: Co Thanh

Co Thanh Restaurant – An ode to Vietnam’s The Lunch Lady

As an ode to Ho Chi Minh City’s Nyguen Thi Thanh (aka The Lunch Lady) – who gained global recognition after appearing on Anthony Bourdain’s “No Reservations” – her sole apprentice opened up Co Thanh to bring her recipes to the 852. While the banh mi and appetisers carry their own, it’s no surprise the soup noodles here really shine (that being The Lunch Lady’s main forte). You can’t go wrong with the Bun Bo Hue, and the Bun Nam is a popular choice for seafood lovers.

Co Thanh (Pacific Place), Shop 123, Level 1, Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Admiralty, Hong Kong, 7073 7735

Vietnamese Restaurants Hong Kong, Vietnamese Food: Le Garcon Saigon

Le Garçon Saigon – Saigonese grill house in Wan Chai with a touch of Parisian chic

Savour the vibrant and fresh flavours of Saigon at this sophisticated Star Street eatery. The first thing you might notice is there isn’t any soup on the menu at Le Garçon Saigon (so don’t come here if you’re craving a bowl of pho!). But don’t worry; the Saigon-style grilled dishes here will not leave you wanting.

Sassy Tip: Pop by Le Garçon Saigon’s sister restaurant Le Petit Saigon next door to pick up a fresh banh mi to go.

Vietnamese Restaurants Hong Kong, Vietnamese Food: Bun Cha Vietnamese

Bun Cha Vietnamese Cafe – Authentic Vietnamese bun cha, pho and more

Bun Cha is our go-to spot when we’re hungry for a steaming bowl of pho. This place is not shy about its portions, so expect nothing less than a heaping pile of beef in your pho bo. On sweltering days, we’ll likely order a bun rice vermicelli and Iced VN Filter Coffee with condensed milk.

Sassy Tip: For something a little different to your regular beef pho, try the Pho Ha Noi, which is made with a light ginger broth.
