Longtime Restaurant Awards followers will know that categories change every year, with some rotating in and out to make space for others. Best Vietnamese hasn’t seen our awards stage since 2020, but that’s not to say this much-loved category of restaurants hasn’t been serving up excellence in that time—in fact, our top two are both under five years old.

So, let’s give an overdue ovation to our 2024 gold winner Crab Hot Lau and silver winner Wooden Fish: the former a daring East Van spot that’s reaching icon status for crispy crab spring rolls; the latter a vibrant West Van eatery known for indulgent braised short rib stew and house-made chili garlic sauce.

Bronze goes to Main Street mainstay Anh and Chi, where bucket-list dishes like the massive turmeric crepe and the assembly-required street-side platter mix fresh fun with family tradition.
