There are Vietnamese restaurants in Perth, then there’s Lido, a Vietnamese restaurant in Northbridge. Standing head and shoulders above many of the Asian eateries in the central city suburb and beyond, Lido Restaurant has built a reputation for itself based on authentic Vietnamese cookery and the freshest ingredients, all for a price that’s incredibly hard to beat given the gourmet chops at work in the kitchen. Whether you’re looking for a venue for a business meeting – Lido’s William Street location is easily reached from the CBD – a place for a romantic dinner or a spot for the whole family to enjoy a Southeast Asian meal, Lido Restaurant’s Northbridge restaurant should be firmly in mind when you come to make your reservations.
Northbridge’s Lido Restaurant knows how to match authentic Vietnamese recipes and expert culinary technique in the kitchen with the judicious use of ingredients sourced locally from trusted Perth and Western Australian suppliers. The results are evident in lunch, dinner, and banqueting menus that capture the unique flavours, colours, and fragrances of Southeast Asian cuisine in fresh dishes available at fantastic prices. The most lavish of the banqueting options – the ‘Enterprise family banquet’ – engages the tastebuds with entrees like the crab meat and asparagus soup and minced chicken and noodles in lettuce cups, follows through with mains including boneless roast duck with Lido Restaurant’s homemade plum sauce, fried fish fillets in a spicy, ginger-infused fish sauce, stir-fried scallops and asparagus, prawns and broccolini with garlic and soy sauce, all served with rice, and rounds off the journey with dessert.
The lunch menu is what the many Perth CBD workers peruse when they call in to Lido on their break. Many head straight for the satisfying noodle dishes – the rare beef and beef-ball hofan noodle soup (an interesting import into Vietnamese cuisine from Guangdong Province in China, much like pho) or the classic beef of chicken noodle soup, pho, that any Perth Southeast Asian food fan knows and loves. For dinner, we recommend the crispy noodles and seafood, the Hokkien-style chow mein for a Chinese slant, the stir-fried chicken or beef with lemongrass and chilli served with steamed rice, the goat curry, or the stir-fried veal with onion and pepper. Ever popular, this Northbridge restaurant along William Street is best booked in advance.
Yet again, yumbo. Tasty tasty pork chop broken rice. Did the pork change recently though? Boneless now and a bit different but still tasty. The ginger chicken dish looked very appetising and was eaten up. The seafood noodles, dry, was very well done.
Where would I be without Lido eh? Never fails to satisfy with good value and great hospitality and yummy food. Great for Vietnamese as well as their versions of Thai and other Asian favourites.
Ahhh, good old Lido and their tasty Vietnamese food. I recommend their version of pork chop broken rice. We also thought the chicken satay and laksa is very enjoyable.
