DANANG — The group behind eight of the finest restaurants in Vietnam has opened its first dining venue in Danang.
Last month, Paradise Vietnam put the finishing touches on Ngon Villa Danang, a 150-seat, all-you-can-eat-style establishment in central Vietnam’s largest city.
“This is a brand-new concept in Danang,” said Nguyen Cao Son, chief operating officer of Paradise Vietnam. “And so far, so good. Locals and tourists alike already love it.”
Ngon Villa Danang serves up Danang specialties at two price points — VND 295,000 ($13) per person and VND 395,000 ($17) per person — with the more expensive option designed to offer the more complete culinary experience.
Signature dishes include Nem Nướng Quảng Nam (grilled sour pork in banana leaves), Cua Bấy Sốt Me (stir-fried soft shell crab with tamarind sauce) and Vịt Sốt Chanh Leo (braised duck with passionfruit).
The new restaurant is on popular Le Quang Dao Street and walking distance from My Khe Beach, which Forbes voted one of the six most attractive beaches in the world in 2013.
Like its namesake in Hanoi, Ngon Villa Danang further entices with indoor and outdoor seating and a relaxed-yet-refined atmosphere.
“The setting is beautiful,” said Cao Son. “Design-wise, it’s colorful, airy and contemporary, and architecturally it evokes a bygone era, housed as it is in an exquisitely restored French villa. It’s the perfect addition to our growing portfolio.”
Paradise Vietnam, which was founded in 2008 as a Halong Bay cruise operator, also owns and manages HOME Hoi An, HOME Hanoi, HOME Finest Saigon, Mam Saigon, The Chopsticks Saigon and 1958 in Halong Bay.
All consistently rank on TripAdvisor among the top 10 dining venues in their respective destinations.
The group’s next opening is slated for September, when it debuts its first restaurant in the ancient city of Hue.
