This is the first festival of this kind organised by the Consulate General of Vietnam in the city, in collaboration with Vietnam National Administration of Tourism and Vietnam Airlines.
Addressing the opening ceremony, Vietnamese Consul-General Mai Phuoc Dung said Vietnam was widely known for its iconic traditional foods.
He said he hopes that Aussies will understand more about the culture and traditions of Vietnam through Vietnamese dishes served during the festival.
The event, which will run until November 27, draws famous cooks and chefs from the northern, central and southern regions of the country.
