Vietnamese food lovers, Rotorua has the place for you. Experts at the sweet, spicy flavours of this much-loved Asian cuisine, The Vnam Kitchen creates delicious noodle soups, fried rice, spring rolls and smoked meats for both lunch and dinner. Meals are served up sizzling hot by the smiley staff and this little bustling spot is obviously a favourite for getting an authentic taste of southern Vietnam.

There’s nothing quite like a place that prints photos of its meals, and this cheap and cheerful eatery has theirs framed on the wall so visitors know exactly what to expect from the menu. Bear in mind if you’re dining with others that things are better shared here, so be prepared to mix and match your meals for the best experience. Try out something sweet from the cold drinks menu like ‘Snowy Summer’ or ‘Taste of Kiss’ for a tropical hit that just so happens to go impeccably with the fresh, tasty meals.
