From Food Vans to Bistro Vibes: Bami Vietnamese is Coming to Melbourne!

Eight Years of Flavorful Journeys

Since its inception in 2016, Bami Vietnamese has embarked on a remarkable journey, blossoming from a single food van in Marion Mall into a beloved restaurant chain with 12 restaurants across South Australia (as in March 2024).

At the heart of Bami’s success is a commitment to bringing the authentic taste of Vietnamese street food to Australia, coupled with a green mission that resonates deeply with today’s eco-conscious diners. This expansion not only reflects Bami’s popularity but also its role in bridging cultures through the universal language of delicious food. This also provides convenience for students who can do my homework while ordering food delivery straight to their doors, enjoying the taste and conversation without unnecessary interruptions.

In weaving the tale of Bami’s evolution, founder Trien Le shared insights that mirror the essence of their journey: “Every dish is a story, and with Bami, we’re telling the vibrant narrative of Vietnam to the world.”

“Our growth is a testament to not just our love for Vietnamese cuisine, but also our commitment to sustainability and community.”, Trien said. These reflections encapsulate the spirit behind Bami’s rise from a modest beginning to a well-known brand in South Australia.

A blend of traditional Vietnamese and Aussie bistro vibe

Bami Southland introduces a captivating new chapter in the Bami saga, presenting a unique decor that marries the warmth of traditional Vietnamese aesthetics with the contemporary flair of Melbourne’s bistro culture. This refreshing take not only signifies Bami’s commitment to enhancing the dining experience but also celebrates the fusion of cultures, inviting customers to savour authentic Vietnamese cuisine in an ambiance that’s both modern and inviting.

Distinct from the traditional design of previous Bami restaurants in Adelaide, Bami Southland takes inspiration from Melbourne’s rich bistro culture, aiming to resonate more closely with the Aussie dining scene. This new aesthetic enhances the dining experience for all patrons, especially those visiting the cinema precinct at Westfield Southland, by offering a cozy yet sophisticated environment perfect for savouring the authentic flavours of Vietnam before or after a movie.

Grand Opening Day: 30 March 2024

The journey of Bami Vietnamese continues with the grand unveiling of Bami Southland on Saturday, 30 March 2024. This momentous occasion is not just a celebration of new beginnings but an invitation to the Melbourne community to immerse themselves in the unique flavours. Special giveaways and discounts await on Opening Day, promising an unforgettable introduction to our cherished culinary traditions.

Join us as we embark on this exciting new chapter together, right in the heart of Melbourne.
