For many in Osborne Park, Stirling, Tuart Hill and surrounding suburbs, Lido Restaurant is the default destination for fine Vietnamese dining, raising the bar for the culinary genre in Perth. The decor is modern and as fresh as the Southeast Asian food on offer, with a strong showing from chef’s specials that are unique to Lido. Finely balancing the demands of authentic Vietnamese recipes with a commitment to using locally-sourced ingredients, Lido Restaurant’s Main Street kitchen is open to using a fusion of Asian and western cooking techniques in order to make the best of both worlds. Located in the cluster of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops surrounding the intersection of Main Street, Hutton Street and Royal Street, Lido gets busy – book your tables ahead.
Turning immediately to Lido Restaurant’s list of chef’s specials guarantees you a Vietnamese meal that most of the Southeast Asian restaurants in Perth will find hard to beat. And it’s a long list. Seafood lovers ought to opt for the Tôm hấp tỏi, steamed broccolini with prawns, garlic and soy sauce, or the Đồ biển xào bông cải, măng tươi, stir-fried scallops, prawns, squid and fish with cauliflower, broccoli, chinese mushrooms and asparagus. For more esoteric Vietnamese dishes of at least a semi-aquatic nature, try the Hải sâm xào bông cải xanh, stir-fried sea cucumber with broccolini and Chinese mushrooms or, bringing it back a little to Australian territory, the incredible Cá sấu rang muối, spicy-fried crocodile with onion, salt and pepper and chilli. A winner in our books and all the reason you need to make the trip to Lido’s Osborne Park premises!
It’s not all straight-ahead and less-than-usual seafood at this premium Perth Vietnamese restaurant, though. Staying with the chef’s specials you can bag yourself boneless roast duck in red curry, spicy marinated crispy quail, chicken stir-fried with soy sauce, garlic, and Coca Cola (!), or simple Japanese tofu and minced chicken fried with mushroom sauce. Clearly, the common denominator at Lido Restaurant is the use of premium – and sometimes pretty out there – ingredients. This is not your run of the mill Southeast Asian eatery! A great way to take the temperature of the place is to do what many Osborne Park and Stirling locals do – book in a banquet. Set at various price points for a minimum of four people, Lido’s banquets offer a smorgasbord of Vietnamese dishes that can be sampled and shared among friends and family for the ultimate Southeast Asian dining experience.

We had a lovely evening. The restaurant was very busy and our large group of 30 really put the staff to the test but they handled the situation well under the circumstances. And yummy food!
100% amazing. Food and service brilliant. Well presented restaurant. Food was absolutely amazing. Nothing at all negative to say about this place. Our table of 5 were very satisfied
Overall not too bad but the service was a touch slow and the presentation of the menu was in need of updating. The photos made the food look unappealing when it really is a lot better than the pictures show.
