  • Just a 5-minute walk from the Vivocity bus stop 
  • Straightforward business hours from Monday to Sunday
  • Notable interiors that imbue Vietnamese culture
  • Wide range of authentic Vietnamese dishes
  • Halal certified
  • Affordable rates


  • Closes very early
  • Only has one branch available

The Orange Lantern is situated inside HarbourFront Centre. It is only a 5-minute stroll from the Vivocity bus stop. 

It has straightforward business hours from Monday to Sunday, but it closes at 6 pm, which is much earlier than its competitors. 

Sadly, it is only found in one location, so those who reside outside the Geylang area may have a hard time going here.

We are quite impressed by Orange Lantern’s overall take on Vietnamese cuisine. It gets plus points on immersion because its Vietnamese heritage shines through from the interior design to the food. 

For instance, the restaurant has plenty of traditional silk lanterns to symbolize warmth and good fortune. Additionally, its menu is composed of genuine Vietnamese cuisine that is Halal certified. 

We ordered the Mango Salad because it is one of its best-selling appetizers. For mains, the customers we talked to recommend the Golden Tofu with Seaweed Floss and signature Beef Noodle Soup.

As for beverages, the Fresh Lemongrass Tea is a must-try, but the supplies for this are limited so make sure to order one right away.

Orange Lantern’s rates are also quite reasonable, with entrées from $15 to $20. It’s definitely one of Singapore’s more affordable options for authentic Vietnamese food.

  • Just in front of the Opp Plaza Parkroyal bus stop 
  • Regular business schedule
  • Closes late in the evening at 10 pm
  • Several branches around Singapore
  • Follows traditional preparation methods and recipes
  • Has vegan dishes
  • Very affordable
  • Quick service


  • Closed on Tuesday
  • Small establishment

Mrs. Pho is located along Beach Road, which is just in front of the Opp Plaza Parkroyal bus stop. 

It has a regular business schedule and closes very late in the evening, making it a great choice for those who are usually busy throughout the day. 

It also has several branches scattered around Singapore, namely in Vivocity, Somerset, Northshore Plaza, Rangoon Road, and Orchard Road. 

Mrs. Pho is regarded as one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in Singapore because it follows the original ethnic methods of preparing food.  

Most restaurants prefer doing modern renditions of recipes and making “fusion” cuisine, whereas this establishment keeps everything traditional. Its menu contains classic Pho meals, seafood, and beef noodle soups.  

We also enjoyed Mrs. Pho’s handmade beverages like the special ginger tea. There is a vegan menu for those individuals who are a bit more health-conscious, complete with salad, vegetarian fried rice, and fried noodles. 

We do want to point out that the branch we went to is quite small and modest. It’s a simple establishment that is good for fast, casual dining. 

Having said that, its rates are very cheap and start at $7.90 per dish. 

Mrs. Pho is the ideal Vietnamese restaurant for individuals who just want a quick meal without the unnecessary bells and whistles commonly found in larger establishments.

Overall, we recommend this place for simple family get-togethers or for anyone who wants authentic Vietnamese food without breaking the bank.

  • Just beside the Aft Aljunied Station bus stop 
  • Consistent operating schedule and is open all week
  • Closes late at 11 pm
  • Wide range of dishes with authentic preparation methods
  • Uses traditional Vietnamese furniture
  • Has vegan dishes
  • Affordable menu


  • Only has one branch
  • Orders take time to make
  • The restaurant is usually full

Ăn Là Ghiền is situated along Sims Avenue and is just beside the Aft Aljunied Station bus stop. It has a consistent operating schedule and is open all week.

It opens relatively later in the morning but its closing time is quite late at 11 pm. It does not have a second branch around Singapore.

The customers we spoke to like this restaurant’s wide range of dishes. Besides having authentic Vietnamese dishes, it also has a lot of options for BBQ and hotpot sets. 

Ăn Là Ghiền’s regulars told us about the flavor of the charcoal-grilled meat the restaurant offers in various meat cuts. 

The patrons also love the immersive experience due to the establishment’s furniture, which comprises traditional woodwork chairs and tables. 

This place really stands out from the expanding number of Vietnamese restaurants in Singapore with its traditional Vietnamese shabu-shabu and barbeque.  

Most of its competitors use modern equipment, which takes away some authenticity from the flavor. Having said that, the orders do take a bit more time to arrive. 

Another thing noteworthy is how affordable the dishes are, the hotpot starts at $34 and other entrées range from $6 to $11. 

The only downside we gathered is that the restaurant is usually very packed on weekends, especially during lunch. Make sure to reserve at least a couple of days in advance to ensure you have a table.

  • 3-minute walk from the Bef Fort Canning Station bus stop 
  • Consistent operating schedule and is open all week
  • Diverse range of fusion dishes
  • Head chef is a culinary expert with a Vietnamese heritage 
  • Can accommodate a large number of customers


  • Only has one branch
  • Opens much later in the afternoon
  • Rates are relatively more expensive

Little Saigon is found in Clarke Quay, which is just a 3-minute walk from the Bef Fort Canning Station bus stop. It has a haphazard business schedule and is closed every Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Unfortunately, it only has one branch open in Singapore.

The restaurant closes at 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays, making it an ideal destination for late-night sessions. However, it opens much later in the afternoon at 5 pm. 

The menu of Little Saigon offers a superb balance of classic and contemporary Vietnamese cuisine. This restaurant does a bit more fusion than other entries on this list that follow strictly traditional recipes. 

We also want to highlight Little Saigon’s head chef, Chef Hoang Hung Dung, a culinary expert with a Vietnamese heritage. 

This establishment’s best dishes are seafood rolls and beef noodle soups. However, Little Saigon is better known for its Vietnamese-Chinese fusion of fresh papaya and chicken salad.  

Its rates are a bit more expensive than our other entries on this list where entrées are between $12 to $20. However, getting reservations is much easier because it is a bigger establishment.

Overall, this restaurant has established itself as one of the top Vietnamese restaurants in Singapore thanks to its blend of classic and modern cuisine ideal for every palate.

5. NamNam

  • Just in front of the Opp Four Seasons Hotel bus stop 
  • Has a regular business schedule from Monday to Sunday
  • Several branches around Singapore
  • Has a branch inside Changi Airport
  • Does not use MSG in dishes
  • Ideal for those looking for healthier options

  • Is able to accommodate customers even during peak hours


  • Relatively more expensive

NamNam is situated inside Wheelock Place shopping mall, which is just in front of the Opp Four Seasons Hotel bus stop. It has a regular business schedule from Monday to Sunday.

This restaurant has multiple branches around Singapore, namely, in Takashima, Jurong Point, Raffles City, and Changi Airport. Its locations makes it very accessible, especially to tourists just arriving in the country.

NamNam gained popularity because of its organic Vietnamese Pho and Banh Mi sandwiches, making it a good option for customers who are looking for healthier options. 

The customers we interviewed enjoyed the restaurant’s traditional meals, all of which are made without MSG preservatives. This makes NamNam an ideal choice for individuals who have hypertension or high blood.

Its menu consists of a variety of noodles, savory baguettes, and other well-known Vietnamese street cuisines. However, its menu is relatively more expensive than its competitors.

For instance, the classic Pho already costs $14.

We do want to praise the restaurant for having quick service and adequate seating. This is probably one of the reasons why NamNam is able to accommodate a large volume of customers even during peak hours.

In general, we recommend this restaurant for those who are usually busy and want a quick and healthy meal. Though the price is a bit more expensive, you’ll save more time because you can simply eat and go about your business during the day.
