The restaurant serves three meals daily for up to 70 guests, lunch and dinner are a la carte. The breakfast is primarily international and includes among other fresh baked bread, homemade jam and fresh made juice. The lunch and dinner menu are though, mainly traditional Vietnamese dishes, such as spring rolls, banana flower salad, morning glory, and steamed rice, with a European twist. Our Chef, Sune Jørgensen and his team will ensure that you have an enjoyable time.
