Hello Auntie

If you’re looking for a modern Vietnamese restaurant in Marrickville, be sure to put Hello Auntie on your list. Although they follow a classic style of Vietnamese cooking, Hello Auntie is famed for their contemporary twists along the way. With a menu that was designed to be shared, if you’re lost on what to order, we recommend trying their gastronomic banquet. Think twice cooked pork belly, lemon cured rare beef and, let’s not forget the impressive pho. A must visit in 2024!

For some of the best pho in Sydney, you need to visit one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in Marrickville, Khoi. Another legend hanging off Illawarra Road, Khoi makes its mark with their modern and crisp dining room that’s painted with bright colours to make for a welcoming atmosphere. And while the shared plates and vermicelli noodles are amazing, we highly recommend picking out a pho dish and be transported to authentic Vietnam. Be sure to also get a pot of tea for your visit!

Nguyen Garden Vietnamese Noodle House

Nguyen Garden is a recent Vietnamese creation in the southern end of Marrickville. The dining room evokes a fresh and rustic atmosphere featuring dangling pot plants and simple decor. But it’s the food that’s getting customers talking. They bring the classics into the modern age with dishes like steamed whole snapper with rice papers, vermicelli, salad and pickles. Or perhaps eggplant fritters.

Pho Phd Vietnamese Restaurant

When you’ve got a decent gathering of hungry mouths to feed, Pho Phd Vietnamese Restaurant is your ultimate choice. They have a mezzanine level that overlooks the lower dining room, easily fitting a gathering of over 20 people. Most of their menu is served as share plates, but if it’s just you, fill up on a pho or vermicelli noodle dish. They also cater for vegans with a decent-sized section on their menu.
