I've been working and living near N.Lee for over 8 years and across the journey probably find myself here 2-3 times a month (including today). It scares me how many visits this amounts to but never once have I been let down. Everything from the Vietnamese rolls, bread, even the pies are nothing short of flavoursome, fresh and good value....

The grilled pork banh mi at this bakery is amazing. Packed full of flavour and ingredients, made freshly before you, and encased in a soft but crispy on the outside bread roll. What more could you want for $5.80. It's open 7 days a week and I wish I had found it earlier to eat more of these rolls! They... More

I was in the area and looking to pick up a quick healthy sandwich or roll to take away. I’d noticed previously that this little no frills Vietnamese bakery was very popular so thought I’d give it a try. I hopped onto the tail end of the queue which went outside into the street and assumed I’d be waiting a... More

I recently moved across the street from the bakery and I noticed that there was always a line out the front of the store, they obviously did something great there. On our way back from the Supermarket, I dragged my daughter in there and we had our first Grilled pork rolls from the bakery. They are without a doubt the... More

After visiting Vietnam and Hoi An, in particular, no banh mi in Melbourne was as satisfying till I visited N Lee. Great banh mi and iced vietnamese coffee, that took me back to Hoi An and the sweet old lady that made seriously awesome banh mi.

The long line up says it all. Hey, I'm asian so I enjoy asian food. But the grilled pork roll here is quite possibly the best in Melbourne!
