There's a reason why we've been around since 2007. We take pride in what we do. Often considered one of Sydney’s best, our legendary pho recipe is a jealously guarded secret. At Surry Hills you will also find original Asian-inspired cocktails and a well-stocked collection of Asian beers and hard-to-find Asian liquor.
Madame Nhu had humble beginnings. In 2006, we set out to introduce to the market our unique take on Vietnamese summer rolls. These rolls were larger than traditional goi cuon rolls at the time and came in a range of flavours and choice of sauces. Opening in 2007 on Elizabeth St, Sydney CBD, our small Vietnamese takeaway, then known as Summerrolls, was an immediate hit. Our eatery quickly attracted long queues during lunch. Such was the buzz, a local newspaper awarded us "best Vietnamese" three years running. It wasn't long before our version of summer rolls became a mainstream lunch staple. Our success lead to a series of venue openings.
By 2010, we noticed something unusual: our pho noodle soup started to develop a cult following of its own and was outselling everything else. So in 2011 we rebranded our business to Madame Nhu and shifted our focus to pho and comfort food with a touch of nostalgia for old Vietnam. Through our food, brand and restaurant design, we were heavily inspired by the political, cultural and culinary developments of post-colonial south Vietnam. The rest, as they say, is history.
