Take your tastebuds on a tantalising trip around the globe right at home! Whether you’re feeling a delicious vacation anywhere from Italy, Vietnam to Mexico, King Street has the place for you.


Translating to ‘Grandma’ in Vietnamese, owners and cousins Michael Nham & Viet Nguyen owe the inspiration for Banoi to their late grandmother. Recreating traditional recipes that have been passed down through the generations, Banoi is where good food meets passion and culture. Perfect for sharing, find fresh rice paper rolls, steamed bao buns with delicious fillings, wontons and rice dishes on the menu as well as signature noodle soups, vermicelli dishes and a scrumptious cumquot lemonade.
