Vietnamese food lovers, Rotorua has the place for you. Experts at the sweet, spicy flavours of this much-loved Asian cuisine, The Vnam Kitchen serves up delicious noodle soups, fried rice, spring rolls and smoked meats for both lunch and dinner. Served up sizzling hot by the smiley staff, the little bustling spot is obviously a favourite for those who are visiting Rotorua from other parts of the world as The Vnam Kitchen can provide a very welcome taste of home.
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 - 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.
