Best Vietnamese Restaurants in Singapore
Authentic cuisine, contemporary setting, and reasonable prices
When the urge to eat Vietnamese Pho comes, Halal-certified So Pho is here to serve! There’s no need to drive to Ho Chi Minh or Hanoi for a good bowl of pho, as So Pho Paragon offers a wide choice of dishes from all over Vietnam, many of which are classic and comforting. Here they also use only the freshest ingredients to capture the essence of each meal. You can also choose from spring rolls, noodles, and banh mi, as well as other entrees and desserts.
We also enjoy how, like many cafes these days, So Pho Paragon’s interior is simple and pleasant. This is the type of establishment where you will not only eat but also meet up with friends. At a reasonable price per person, it’s also the kind of place that shoppers and employees like as much!
Besides the freshest Vietnamese cuisine and the nicest restaurant atmosphere, we love that they can bring the most delicious pho to even the busiest people. This means that if you don’t have time to see them, they can send you delicious steaming pho to your house anytime, anywhere. But if you really want to go to So Pho Paragon but are too far away, you can find a branch here at VivoCity Singapore and book a table.

A fusion of regional Asian cuisine with American soul food
Heart of Darkness is more than the craft beer they are so famous for. They have become the go-to destination for craft beer lovers due to their distinctive blends of base beers and collaborations with local, regional, and global craft brewers. Plus, they have a redesigned menu with an array of unique dishes that blend regional Asian cuisine with American soul food. That being said, we think you should try their version of banh mi – pork or chicken with pickled radish, carrot, chilli, sriracha, mayonnaise, and coriander!
We also think the restaurant’s industrial style conveys a lively and relaxed atmosphere. It honestly elevates the concept of a gastro pub and blends it with the global menu of bold and delicious flavors. Even better, Heart of Darkness offers island-wide delivery and takeout for its food and craft beer.

Cô Chung (Aunty Chung) serves excellent Vietnamese cuisine. And by Vietnamese food, we mean everything on the menu is Vietnamese, from appetisers to beverages and sweets. What sets it apart from other authentic Vietnamese restaurants in Singapore is that each meal has a unique twist that gives you more choices. For example, the banh mi they serve comes in a variety of flavors including the original recipe, grilled pork, veggie sauteed mushrooms and tofu, and many more! Spring rolls are also available in fresh and deep-fried versions, so you will never be bored dining here.

Khói in Vietnamese means “smoked,” and as the name suggests, this is a grill restaurant that uses searing hot charcoal for its barbecue. Sure, BBQ isn’t quite Vietnamese, but you can discover a variety of Vietnamese dishes, such as appetisers, to spice up your grilled meat experience! Popular items include Vietnamese pancakes, Viet Pork Sausage Special, and Crispy Viet Thac Lac Fish. So, if you want to try the famous K-bbq meat grilling but with Vietnamese side dishes instead, this is the place to go.

Mrs Pho is a dedication to all the Vietnamese mothers, grandmothers, and aunts we adore for being the best cooks. So in this restaurant you can expect only classic Vietnamese cuisine – no blatant rip-off or fusion! Simply put, their cooking tastes exactly like mamma’s. What’s great about Mrs Pho is also the uniqueness of each restaurant branch from the other. For that Vietnamese street vibe, head to their original Mrs. Pho restaurant on Bussora Street Singapore. But for a little more Miss Saigon in the 70s, Mrs. Pho House is what you need.

What we like best about Little Saigon is the overall ambience of the restaurant. The place is decorated with classic Vietnamese lanterns in navy blue and a playful touch of yellow in the warm dark wood setting. It’s beautifully fascinating and inviting at the same time! Also, we think the atmosphere adds a positive vibe when enjoying modern Vietnamese cuisine. Speaking of food, Little Saigon’s menu is refreshing and unique, combining the authentic taste of Vietnamese specialties with new and traditional festive dishes.
