Got a thirst for pho? Got a feeling for Vietnamese? You need to head down to Sydney’s Inner West when it comes to this particular Southeast Asian cuisine, and check out Yen For Viet on Illawarra Road. If you want to discover the best Vietnamese in Marrickville, then you need to pay them a visit to pick up a steaming bowl of pho, a spring roll salad or a deep-fried full snapper with tamarind fish sauce. Book a table at Yen For Viet and head on into Marrickville to see what they have to offer.
Vietnamese food in Sydney means Marrickville, the city’s very own Little Saigon. There are countless pho-nominal restaurants to choose from in the area, so you’ll always be spoiled for choice, but if you want something from the real top table, then take a trip to Yen For Viet. Their menu is focussed on the classics of the genre, from pho and papaya salad to rice paper rolls, salt and pepper tofu or stir-fried prawns with a satay chilli sauce.
This traditional Vietnamese restaurant is tastefully, minimally decorated – the focus here is on taking your seats and ordering up all the delicately-flavoured delicacies you know and love, and a few less-travelled variations, too. Get yourself a classic crispy pancake with tofu for vegetarians, pork and prawn, or luxurious duck, or do the DIY wrap-it-up with Wagyu beef or whole snapper. Of course, we couldn’t pho-get the pho – here at Yen For Viet its renowned as being particularly good – and available with premium Wagyu beef as well. Book a table and get over to Illawarra Road in Marrickville for a proper Viet feed in Sydney.
We had a fun and fabulous evening, the service and the food was brilliant! Keep up the great work, we all can't wait to return.
Excellent food! Light, tasty and yet filling. Short on menu options but beautifully prepared andnpresented. Pleasant space. Unobstrusive but friendly service. Very reasonably priced. Highly recommended 👍
Every meal in our group of 6 was delicious. Good service and very good value. Probably my 10th visit here, it never disappoints. Highly recommended.
