Whether you’re after a gourmet treat or you’re hunting for an authentic experience, our favourite bánh mì spots across Perth will take your next lunch to the next level.

Bánh Mì Vũng Tàu

We’re no sticklers for authenticity, but if you want legit bánh mì, it does seem like Girrawheen is the neighbourhood. Warm crusty bread, heaps of fillings available that don’t stray too far from the traditional, and a price that’s just as tasty as the roll: you’d be a fool to pass up Bánh Mì Vũng Tàu.

Le Vietnam

Le Vietnam offers up traditional bánh mì, as well as an ever-changing specials board – these special rolls may not be for the purist, but boy are they great. As well as some deluxe meaty specials (think bulgogi pork, buffalo chicken and other fusion-y creations), they’ve also got an impressive range of vegan options so everyone can get in on the bánh mì action.

 Roll Vs Bowl

One of our favourite cheap eats, Roll Vs Bowl’s bánh mì are a bargain hunter’s dream. Choose from a variety of fillings (grilled pork, roast pork, grilled beef, grilled chicken, meatballs, vegetarian), nestled in a crusty bun, with zesty pickled veggies. It’s a straightforward, reliable winner that won’t let you down.

Shop 138, Coventry Village, 243-253 Walter Road West, Morley


MCQ Vietnamese Rolls

You can’t talk about Perth bánh mì without hearing the name MCQ – it’s become a stalwart for its great value, classic rolls. While their Coventry outpost is no longer dishing out their rolls, you can still get your hands on the goodies at their Mirrabooka Square store. Starting at just five bucks, you can get your choice of pork, chicken or tofu roll, with a refreshing sugar cane juice on the side for a few bucks more.

Mirrabooka Square, 43 Yirrigan Drive, Mirrabooka


Sunshine Cafe

This low-key Mount Lawley lunch bar has been a pho and bánh mì favourite of locals for years. Tucked away on Beaufort Street in between Walcott Street and Queens Crescent, and with no online presence to speak of, Sunshine is about as unassuming as it comes – but their flavourful menu has meant a loyal following of devotees. Generous sizes at reasonable prices make it an all round hit.

683A Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley


Ben Thanh

Family favourite of a foodie friend, Ben Thanh is another bánh mì spot with loyal devotees. We know we’ve talked about bargains already, but Ben Thanh certainly doesn’t disappoint on that front either. For less than a fiver you can pick up a traditional roll with a choice of pork, chicken or sardine. You won’t find any experimental flavour combinations here, but sometimes the authentic, simple things are really what you need.

Mirrabooka Village Shopping Centre, 4/73 Honeywell Boulevard, Mirrabooka


Bunn Mee

One of the newest spots on the list, but make sure you don’t mistake youth for inexperience. A family operation helmed by a former Masterchef contestant, Bunn Mee is dishing up fresh and flavourful Vietnamese street food, including bánh mì. They manage to maintain amazing service in spite of their hectic rushes – it’s super popular amongst the lunch crowd. It might be a little more expensive than some of the other suburban grab and go places, but for Leederville it’s one of the best value lunches, particularly when you realise just how tasty it is.

112 Oxford Street, Leederville


Bibra Lake Lunch Bar

We kept seeing these tantalising, enticing bánh mì showing up on our stories, and had to investigate. The source? Bibra Lake Lunch Bar. As well as some A+ bánh mì, these guys are grilling up a storm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, serving Vietnamese street food cooked over the coals – let your nose guide you.

1/40 Port Pirie Street, Bibra Lake


Let’s Eat Lunch Bar & Café

It’s hard not to be enthusiastic with a name like Let’s Eat, but once you’ve glimpsed their bánh mì… Well, you’ll be ravenous! This West Perth lunch favourite has been earning some staunch supporters for their generous rolls – jam packed with succulent meats, ultra crispy crackling, piquant veggies and that decadent mayo/pâté mix… It’s no wonder they’ve earned such legions of fans.

3/79 Colin Street, West Perth


DJ’s Lunch Bar

How does DJ’s get their roast pork so juicy, and yet their crackling so crisp? It’s a mystery that keeps us awake at night – but in the meantime, we’ll just keep heading back there, eating delicious, hype-worthy BMT and pondering the intricacies of the universe.

Bánh mì thịt Thu Nga

One day, you’re just strolling down the Rockingham Foreshore, not even aware that your life is about to change forever. One of Perth’s newer BMT spots, Bánh mì thịt Thu Nga is nevertheless making waves with its beachside bánh mì. Generously filled and littered with plenty of shards of golden, crunchy crackling… Well, let’s just say we’ll be revisiting as soon as possible.

Shop 5, 1 Rockingham Beach Road, Rockingham


Munch Box

It may be one of our favourite spots to pop by after a visit to neighbouring Little Land, but Munch Box is well worth a trip on its own merits. Bringing the lunch bar firmly into the future, the bright space is serving up some next-level bánh mì – unsurprisingly, we recommend the roast pork.
