NOW OPEN: SA-born Vietnamese street food chain Bami opens new venue in Henley Beach

Bami, the renowned SA-born Vietnamese street food eatery, has opened its new bistro in Henley Beach.

Bami, the renowned SA-born Vietnamese street food eatery, officially opened its brand-new venue across from the bustling Henley Square last week.

“Our goal is to infuse even more vibrancy into Henley’s already dynamic culinary scene, offering a wide range of fresh and green Vietnamese street food to the local community,” Trien Le, CEO of Bami, says.

Established in 2016 by childhood friends and life partners Trien Le and Mai Nong, alongside Khanh Tran, Bami has been instrumental in introducing Vietnamese cuisine to Australian palates.

With a commitment to fresh, healthy ingredients and a desire to share their cultural heritage, the team has curated a menu that celebrates the rich flavours of Vietnam.

“We provide the best Vietnamese street food. Anything famous you can think of, you can find at Bami: Pho, bánh mì, and much more,” Trien explains.

The new venue in Henley Beach marks a significant milestone for Bami, as it introduces a concept that combines Vietnamese street food with a beachside dining experience.

“It’s the very first restaurant that we’ve opened in a beach area. It’s right opposite Henley Square, so it’s a perfect location for us,” Trien shares, highlighting the unique setting of their latest venture.

The Henley Beach venue is a change up from Bami’s traditional takeaway model, offering a higher-end dining experience in a relaxed, bistro-like atmosphere.

“Our new venues will have a higher-end feel than our previous venture. We’ve completely revamped our design,” Trien reveals.

With approximately 100 square meters of space, the new venue provides ample room for guests to enjoy Bami’s flavourful offerings. But, there’s still that same fast service vibe within the premises, with delicious lunch options ready to go.

“In Adelaide, we are the best! We have the market, and the highest number of Vietnamese restaurants in Adelaide,” Trien states.

As Bami expands its footprint, the founders remain steadfast in their mission to promote healthy eating and share the flavours of Vietnam with the world.

Plans for further expansion include additional venues both locally and interstate, with another Adelaide store set to open at Brickworks Marketplace in Torrensville.

“Adelaide’s market has the highest consumption rate of Vietnamese food, especially bánh mì – much more than Melbourne and Sydney,” Trien notes, highlighting the continued demand for Vietnamese cuisine in South Australia.
