Tanh Cup Restaurant Established in 2019 and located on the capital's long-standing Yet Kieu street, Tanh Cup restaurant is the perfect combination of cozy space of ancient French villa architecture combined with new and sophisticated dishes. The name of the restaurant is inspired by the sound of seafood moving on the sea before dawn in Vietnamese fishing villages. As a place that is always set as a meeting point for special occasions, Tanh Tách knows that space is an important highlight to create a relaxing atmosphere for each customer's experience. Every position of the smallest items, each painting, vase, each plate, the glass cast a shadow under the yellow light or under the sunlight through the window frame has daily attention and care. True to the name and origin, the fresh fishy sound has breathed a breath of enthusiasm into the spirit of the chef here, with the core cooking motto throughout "taking ingredients with Asian colors and flavors as the focus for each dish". In addition to dining service at restaurants for "gourmet" customers, Tanh Cup is also known through the catering service "Tanh Split Private" - bringing quality meals to any location of families and businesses.
