Vietnamese food is nothing new to our city and has been a popular cuisine for Hongkongers. Whether it's the steaming soups of Ho Chi Minh City or the fragrant street food offerings of Hanoi, Vietnamese dishes are often well executed in our city by a number of talented chefs who know the cuisine like the back of their hand.

In this lineup, we largely forgo the humble banh mi – for which we already have an exclusive article – and instead slurp and crunch our way around the restaurants serving some of the best Vietnamese soupy, noodly and rice-filled dishes in town. The best part is that more than a few of these do delivery and takeout, so, whether you're looking for a light lunch, or a decadent dinner feast, these might be right for you.

  • Wan Chai

This restaurant on Wan Chai's Lun Fat Street is helmed by Vietnamese cuisine master John Nguyen, who cooks up a range of tempting dishes that are also available for takeaway and delivery, including the 12-hour braised beef tongue salad ($128) – which is comprised of pomelo, green mango, herbs and homemade citrus dressing; and crispy fresh grouper spring rolls ($138) with crab meat, herbs, and chef Nguyen's homemade fish sauce. Pho is done here in the northern Vietnamese style, with pickled garlic as opposed to fresh herbs, and complemented with a moreish Chinese doughnut.

The noodle dish comes in numerous varieties, namely prime rib ($148), chicken ($138), and the Xuân signature beef pho ($168) – which is ideal for meat-lovers – made with Angus prime rib, braised beef tongue and oxtail served with homemade 24-hour beef broth. In addition to these mouthwatering delights, chef Nguyen also cooks up a string of larger dishes for sharing like C啤m Gà Hoi An Chicken Rice ($178). To place your order, head to the online delivery platforms or call 2891 1177.

As the name would suggest, these guys specialise in pho but don't let that make you think their skills in the kitchen end there. As well as the ubiquitous noodle soup, they also do a well-executed range of funky snacks, including their Bomb-ass Karaage ($53), which lives up to its name, their house special chicken wings ($47), and a selection of fries that you may not expect from your usual neighbourhood Vietnamese joint.

They offer delivery, and, in contrast to the restaurant, where you can choose from an intricate selection of flavours and toppings for your pho, they keep it simple by offering the Supreme Combo Pho ($110), which has a bit of everything in it. Order away and slurp down your delicious noods in the comfort of home, if that's what takes your fancy.

This Hanoi-inspired bar and eatery opened to bring the Vietnamese tradition of bia hoi (drinking beer with friends on a busy street corner) to Peel Street. In these current times, there isn't as much of that going on, but thankfully this attractive eatery is offering delivery so that you can enjoy your favourite bites at home.

As well as their menu with all the usual suspects – from VFC wings ($108) to Cha Ca Hanoi white sole fillet ($188) – they're also offering the Chom Chom and Chill ($538) delivery set for two, which consists of a choice of either pho rolls, spring rolls, or vegetarian summer rolls; two mains of short rib lettuce wraps and bun rau with nuoc cham; a couple of sides; and an optional bottle of wine ($150) to complete the meal. Bear in mind that Chom Chom is open from Thursdays to Sundays only.

Bun Cha's multiple branches on Hong Kong Island all serve up a good bowl of pho, a solid banh mi, and a mean bun cha, of course. For those who'd rather have some of their extensive lineup brought to them, Bun Cha offers delivery, and we recommend opting for either their beef noodle soup ($85), their deep-fried roll with dry noodles ($98), or their banh mi with pork belly ($75). Either way, you can't go far wrong for some of Bun Cha's good-quality Vietnamese bites for lunch or dinner.

  • Causeway Bay

This elegant Vietnamese restaurant has three branches across the city, in Causeway Bay, Yuen Long, and Kowloon Tong. It's been a hit with fans of Vietnamese food for a few years now, thanks to the kitchen's understanding of the cuisine and their ability to come up with recipes that highlight the freshness of the ingredients. Good news to many is that they deliver, so enjoying some dishes from An Nam could be as easy as just a couple of clicks.

Try the signature noodles with soup ($83 for single $152 for double serving), or get your hands on their signature cooked beef ($64) or brisket and raw beef ($67) pho, as well as a variety of vermicelli, rice, seafood, and even Vietnamese pot dishes like boiled vegetable ($42), or fried broccoli and diced beef ($101). Enjoy your next Vietnamese meal in style.

All clean, angular lines and white wood make up the interior of this homely Vietnamese Hanoi street-style kitchen. Luckily, however, for those who don't fancy dine-in at this moment in time, BEP also offers an attractive lineup for delivery including everything from their signature phos, to banh mi, to rice paper rolls and rice dishes, and much much more!

We enjoy the lunch set here, available Monday to Friday from 11.30am to 3pm, which allows diners to choose one starter from a selection of calamari, beef meatball soup, chicken wings, and others; and one main from a bowl of pho, a lemongrass chicken or beef bun, or a Vietnamese curry, all for $108.

This Saigon-style steakhouse is the perfect option for those looking for an extravagant Vietnamese feast. The menu offers an array of decadent dishes for your epicurean pleasure, with everything from the wood-fired suckling pig, to slow-roasted lamb ribs, to snow crab fried rice.

For those looking for something to fill their stomach at lunchtime, the lunch set combo ($128) makes for a great early afternoon treat to see you through the day. It consists of a main of either Okinawa pork collar, lemongrass wagyu, grilled chicken leg, or spiced tofu; and a side of either broken rice, a bun, or market vegetables. This is available for delivery, and Le Garcon Saigon offers a 20 percent discount for pick up orders.

  • Sha Tin

This much loved Vietnamese restaurant has multiple branches across Hong Kong from Causeway Bay to Sha Tin and remains a favourite lunchtime spot for workers and passersby alike. The best part is that their delivery game is on point, so whether it's a noodle set ($96) with a choice of hot starters – from chicken satay to Hanoi fish cake – and a bowl of pho; or a rice box set ($96) with curried salmon, lemongrass pork chop, or roast chicken; Nha Trang has got you covered.
