Xin chào, welcome to Anan Saigon!

Anan means, “eat, eat” and is located in Cho Cù along Tôn Thât Dam Street, a wet market in the heart of bustling Saigon. Chef Peter elevates street food and traditional dishes towards a fine dining experience using fresh local ingredients, incorporating French culinary techniques, all while retaining the essential flavors at the heart of Vietnamese cuisine.  The Anan Experience can be found in an iconic “tube house”, one of the tall, thin buildings that typify modern Vietnamese architecture. Upstairs from Anan, on the 3rd floor, is the cocktail bar Nhau Nhau. The name means “drink, drink” – a tribute to Vietnam’s culture of after-work drinking and eating. And above that, is our Pot Au Pho noodle bar, which showcases the country’s most iconic noodle dish, pho. Before and after visits to any of the venues, guests can transition to the building’s rooftop dining bar and take in the breathtaking views of downtown Saigon. Anan Saigon was recently awarded #40 Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants and The Best Restaurant In Vietnam 2023. This is the third consecutive year that Anan Saigon has been recognized by the Asia 50 Best team who refer to us as being “the most sought after dining experience in Ho Chi Minh City”.

In addition to a full A La Carte menu with signature dishes such as Đà Lạt Pizza, Bánh Xèo Taco, Crab Fried Rice, Lemongrass Pork Chop and Angus Shaking Beef, Anan Saigon currently offers two tasting menus which offer a perfect introduction to Chef Peter’s modern New Vietnamese Cuisine. The Saigon Tasting Menu showcases our modern interpretation of classic Vietnamese dishes such as River Prawn Bánh Xèo Taco and Angus Beef Tenderloin with Phú Quốc pepper sauce. For an even more gastronomic experience, we recommend the Chef’s Tasting Menu, which details a culinary tour of the country with regional dishes from North to South with dishes such as Chả Cá Hà Nội, Caviar Cháo Congee and Fish Sauce Ice Cream. Our A La Carte menu is created for sharing as this is a more fun social experience and you get to discover a wider variety of our dishes. Advance booking is required for our Tasting Menu and off-menu specials such as our iconic $100 Pho.
