The French culinary influence on the Vietnamese culture dates back to the 17th century.
Characteristic of Vietnamese cuisine is the attention to incorporating the five taste elements to each dish: salty, sweet, sour, bitter, and umami.
French cuisine is characterized by innovative flavors and elegant presentation and the convergence of these distinctive cultures creates a gastronomic experience filled with a beautiful range of flavors and color.
Our five course French Vietnamese dinner promises to be one to remember. Chef Michael Grieve has prepared each dish with the authenticity and attention to detail that is so widely celebrated by each culture.
