One night only

For one night only, this exclusive event, priced at $290 per person, promises to be a memorable celebration of Nguyen’s culinary philosophy. Emphasising fresh, locally sourced ingredients, Nguyen masterfully blends Vietnamese flavours with an Australian twist. The evening kicks off at 6:30 pm with a Vietnamese-inspired cocktail, the con châu chấu, a calming mix of Vietnamese mint-infused Archie Rose Signature Gin, cacao blanc liqueur, peppermint tea, coconut water, and yuzu mist.

As dinner begins, Nguyen will personally introduce each of the seven courses, sharing stories and insights from his travels through Vietnam and South-East Asia. Expect a culinary journey with dishes like handmade rice noodles with prawn, mushroom, finger lime, and pork floss, and a whole steamed fish in a lemon myrtle tom yum broth.
