BO NAM* brings Vietnamese cuisine with an international attitude to Amsterdam
Bo Nam is a restaurant/ bar concept located in the vibrant city center of Amsterdam since late 2016, near the infamous Leidseplein. The initiative of starting a Vietnamese restaurant with a hint of French bistro, originated from a long lasting friendship between five hospitality entrepreneurs and their shared love for Asia and its rich food culture (Nam in Vietnamese, simultaneously translates as five, as well as the South of Viet Nam).
Local entrepreneurs Bao An Nguyen Phuoc (Nghia N Nghia), Nghia Huynh (Nghia N Nghia), Thuan Hoang (Blender), Casper Reinders (Jimmy Woo, Bo Cinq, Lion Noir, Chicago Social Club, A L’Elephant du Congo, Blue Boy d’ Amsterdam) and Ho Kai Yen (Dynasty, Bo Cinq, Lion Noir, Woo Bro’s) intended to create a contemporary oriental ambiance, without making obvious choices. Hence, the easy-going urban experience and the eclectic interior design.
