About Nguyen Brothers - Alexandria

Inner West Sydney locals are spoilt for choice when it comes to fantastic Southeast Asian food, whether from a swanky restaurant or from a hole in the wall pork roll kiosk. Those in the know are probably familiar with Yen For Viet on Marrickville. Well, here’s that delicious sister’s brother, or rather brothers. Nguyen Brothers occupies one of those fantastically repurposed ex-industrial/commercial spaces down Alexandra’s Fountain Street, and they’ve done a great job furnishing the place so you feel at home but can focus on the reason you’re here – the mouthwatering, delicately-flavoured Vietnamese cuisine on offer. Book for brunch or lunch and try signature dishes like the Nguyen’s famous Vietnamese rolls or perfectly-balanced pho. Bring on the crispy Vietnamese pancakes to begin dinner before attacking caramelised claypot fish, pork belly slow-cooked in fresh coconut juice with a son-in-law egg – a fried boiled egg that’s a staple delicacy in every Thai and Vietnamese kitchen.

More about Nguyen Brothers - Alexandria, Alexandria

When it comes to Southeast Asian cuisine about Sydney, those in the know are probably familiar with Yen For Viet on Marrickville – it’s been a go to for some years. Well, here is the brother, or rather, brothers of that Marrickville eatery: Nguyen Brothers. It’s on Alexandra’s Fountain Street, housed in a building which is simply stunning. For those not so in the know about Southeast Asian cuisine, in a nutshell it’s is all about freshness and simplicity. It’s about zing and being able to taste every ingredient, with a constant strong showing of chilli, ginger, lemongrass, then soy and fish sauces.

The menu at Nguyen Brothers is vast, authentic and, sure enough, there’s a good presence of those core ingredients. Stop by Alexandria for lunch and tuck into a Vietnamese bread roll – also known as street food favourite Bánh mì – filled with grilled meats and pickled veggies, or, if you’re over in the evening there’s Vietnam’s national dish, pho, as well as mains in the way of stir-frys, rice noodles or zesty salads. What can we tell you, Sydney, the great thing about Vietnamese food is that because it’s so light, you can keep on eating, and eating, and eating...

Very good food & service. Eggplant claypot was superb as was beef pho. Very poor ventilation so clothes smelt of the food. Any chance of fixing this please?

Third time at Nguyen Brothers and each time the meal is just right. Last night had the Caramelised fish plus the eggplant and tofu stir-fry with rice. Sufficient bite to accompany the sweetness of the fish and the tofu was delicate and the eggplant creamy. Perfect for a quick meal on a public holiday night and great value for money.

The food was fantastic. The staff were helpful and friendly. I would recommend the restaurant as a place to go for good Vietnamese food. Unfortunately we didn't receive one of the dishes we ordered - which was fine as I think we over ordered and glad that the extra dish did;t arrive. But when the bill came the missing meal was included. It wasn't problem and the bill was altered. I will be back.

Food very nice - fresh flavours etc. We did have to ask for someone to take our order - which was disappointing as I would expect the staff to notice someone sitting for a while and should come up to ask if they can take our order. It is nice though that this restaurant is now open for dinner - will be back again for dinner.

Food was great, good selection and interesting foods, all yummy. Their alcoholic drinks are not in menu, but rather on wall, so don't be confused (we didn't realise they had wine and beer so went to Dan Murphy's across the road and got a bottle). Service wasn't great, the waitress seemed to get our order confused and didn't put through half the order which meant they came out very spread out.
