Let us know if we missed your favourite Vietnamese restaurants!

Little Minh’s

Known for their quick service and delicious bánh mì Little Minh’s has secured a place as one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in Burnaby. Aside from their crusty and perfectly-filled bánh mìs, be sure to check out their sate for an indulgent beef bone broth infused with chili sate and peanut butter.

Special mention: Pho Thai Hang 2

A special mention goes out to this restaurant on Kingsway just outside of Burnaby. This unassuming restaurant offers a wide variety of Vietnamese cuisine, a lot of which are harder to come by in metro Vancouver. We recommend their steamed rice cake (bánh bèo), it’s a great savoury snack to start the meal with!
