Bo Nam* is an Asian bistro concept located in the vibrant city centre of Amsterdam, near the infamous Leidseplein. It offers an experience, which delicately balances authentic Vietnamese flavours with creative international interpretation, world-class drinks and mood shifting tunes in an easy-going contemporary ambiance.
Bo Nam’s post-minimalist decorative interior design is a fluid synthesis of eclectic flavors articulating personal styles. The establishment offers a variety of spaces, such as a cocktail lounge, a private dining area and a bistro featuring a 12-meter long hand painted camouflage wall by artist Skulljan. The material palette ranges from earthy tones and pure materials such as raw hemp linen, deep burnt wood and rough stucco to brass palm lamps. On the one hand the furniture has been stripped of ornamental decoration and treated with refined finishing, on the other the backfaces of the limestone tabletops have been left untouched. Bo Nam has a total indoor area of 150 square meters including a 40 square meters outdoor terrace.
With Thuan Hoang as chef de cuisine, Bo Nam establishes a menu, which delicately balances authentic Vietnamese flavors with creative international interpretation. It offers classics such as Pho Bo Nam (rice noodle soup), Bo Kho (Vietnamese Boeuf Bourgignon) and fresh or fried rice paper rolls, as well as signature dishes such as the Steak Tartare with sweet and sour, the Carpaccio with fish sauce and the Ham-Buh-Guh. For lunch, Bo Nam serves Banh Mi (Vietnamese baguette), Spring Rolls or Noodle, Rice and Salad Bowls. Bo Nam offers a well-matched wine selection and world-class crafted signature cocktails such as the Bo Nam Bellini and the Bo Nam Spritz.
