A truly traditional Vietnamese restaurant that is located in the centre of Bangkok. The food originates from the French colonial era; a style of cooking that was founded back in 1926 by the hugely influential Hoa Ly, and the tradition of this style of cooking has been preserved by La Dalat to perfection. The authentic decoration is characterised by high ceilings composed with dark wooden beams, rustic decorations and antiques, and waiting staff that wear typical Vietnamese attire is a welcoming touch. Hoa Ly is the icon of the restaurant which portrays fading photographs on the walls to depict her life memories.
Featured dishes on the menu have origins from the wealthy areas of Vietnam, typically the land beside the Mekong River. Such dishes include 'indochine beef stew', 'seared prawns in lemon grass', and 'lamb and beef Vietnamese curry'. Great attention to detail is evident in the presentation of each dish that is served on Annamese blue and white porcelain plates that have been hand painted by skilled Vietnamese artisans. Vietnamese food is considered as much of a philosophical statement as it is a culinary delight, so exceptional quality is guaranteed throughout the menu selection.
Opening times: Monday - Sunday; Lunch 11:30-14:30; dinner 17:30-22:30.
