Sen Viet – Vietnamese in Subiaco


When you think of Rokeby Road, Vietnamese food doesn’t instantly spring to mind but thanks to Sen Viet, that’s about to change.

Sen Viet Chicken with Lime Leaves
My husband and I are both big fans of any kind of Asian food and Vietnamese is one of our favourites. Heading into Subi early one night, we were looking forward to sinking our teeth into the food on offer at Sen Viet. My favourite Vietnamese meal would be Pho but I was keen to see what else was on the menu.

The entrance to Sen Viet is inconspicuous, with a very narrow frontage, however the interior of the restaurant is surprisingly spacious. It’s located right next to The Witch’s Cauldron, but you could easily walk right past the restaurant and not realise it’s there.

Sen Viet resembles many popular Asian eateries. Attractive Asian artworks and crockery decorate the walls and it has a simple and clean design.

A family business, Sen Viet offers all the usual satisfactions from spring rolls to Pho and they’re all loving prepared on site in the kitchen. The menu is extensive so it’s perfect for a quick solo lunch or in a group setting where multiple dishes can be ordered and shared.

It was recommended we try Cha Gio Viet Nam – Vietnamese spring rolls ($8) for entrée and then Bun Bo Xao ($13) – stir fried beef with rice vermicelli and salad and Ga Xao La Chanh ($16) – stir fried chicken with lime leaves with rice for our main.

Sen Viet Spring Rolls
The spring rolls were piping hot and crispy skinned. The filling was delicious and between my husband and I, we were impressed with what Sen Viet had to offer in these delightful morsels.

Bun Bo Xao – stir fried beef with rice vermicelli and salad is another one of my favourites and Sen Viet’s version is really enjoyable. Large strips of tender beef, fresh salad and an abundance of vermicelli noodles, there’s a lot to love in that bowl.

Sen Viet Beef Salad and Noodles
My husband loves curry and this one was a lovely mild version with chunks of chicken breast and vegetables. The subtle flavour of the lime leaves was a lovely variation to normal chicken stir-fry.

Our meal was finished off with a serve of complimentary orange slices, which was a nice surprise to refresh our palate.

Portion sizes are very generous and there was more than enough food between the two of us with leftovers (staff were happy to let me take it away).

Sen Viet is well worth a visit. They’re also BYO at $2 per person. If you’re looking for truly authentic Vietnamese food that’s inexpensive, Sen Viet would be my pick in Subi.

Sen Viet is located on 85 Rokeby Road in Subiaco. They are closed Monday and open Tuesday – Sunday 10am to 2:30pm, 5pm to 9pm.

I love socialising and eating so if I can combine the two, it’s a match made in heaven. Always like to try somewhere new but can’t beat eating Vietnamese or Japanese food at a local haunt. I’m excited to explore more of what Perth has to offer and will base my reviews on food, service and the atmosphere of a restaurant.
