A Waterside South-East Asian Restaurant Is Opening This October

Kampus has announced its brand new residency.

Following the success of both Le Social Wine and Summer Beer Thing’s recent residencies at Kampus’ bungalow, the up-and-coming neighbourhood has announced that a brand new Manchester brand is set to move in, with Altrincham Market’s Bánh Vì taking the reins until the end of November.

Bringing the flavours of Asia to the lovely garden neighbourhood from the 8th October, guests will be able to enjoy a number of plant-based dishes – including steaming, fragrant broths, delicious rice bowls, succulent crispy mushroom ‘wings’ and ‘Banh Mi’ sandwiches.

If that wasn’t all, Bánh Vì will also be serving some strong, Vietnamese coffees to wash it all down with, too, alongside a selection of Asian beers, iced teas and more.

Opening just two years ago in Altrincham, after spending time travelling around Asia, the street food spot has become well-loved by locals, with Harry Yarwood and Jess King – the founders behind Bánh Vì – recreating the delicious food they came across during their Asian adventure.

Bánh Vì co-founder Harry Yarwood, said: “Hot, sweet, salty, sour, bitter – we’ve always strived for the perfect flavour balance in our creations. Since we started, we’ve won over so many regulars who now come back week after week for our take on Vietnamese and Malaysian food. Our ethos has always been about using the best ingredients, supporting local suppliers and just delivering amazing, creative menus that people fall in love with, whether they’re used to eating plant-based food or not. The vibe of the community at Kampus is absolutely perfect for us and we can’t wait to be filling the Bungalow with people who may be experiencing our signature Banh Mi sandwiches for the first time.”

Adam Brady, at HBD, said: “We can’t wait to welcome the Bánh Vì team down at Kampus. Their bold flavours and hearty Asian food, all served up in the relaxed, intimate Bungalow, will be the perfect dose of escapism as Autumn draws in. Manchester has totally embraced our residencies this summer and we know they’ll get behind Banh Vi, for a taste of something a little bit different.”

Bánh Vì will open Thursday to Saturday from 12pm – 11pm (food served until 9pm) and Sundays from 2pm – 7pm (food served until 5pm), with space for 30 diners. Kicking off on Friday 8 October 2021, the residency will run through to the end of November. Diners are advised to book ahead by contacting 07549133392, with limited space for walk-ins.
