First Taste of Bonjour Vietnam Bistro

A beautiful new modern Vietnamese restaurant opened today in the Fraserhood neighborhood featuring a stunning dream garden inside the restaurant.

Owners Nguyet Dang who runs operations and Chef who runs the kitchen have no previous experience operating a restaurant, they have done a fabulous job setting up their 62 seat occupancy restaurant. The décor is stunning from the garden of flowers on the ceiling to instagramable swivel dream chair, to the pineapple wallpaper in the front area near the bar, to the flamingo wall papered bathrooms. Love the motif adorning the back wall “living colorfully” which identifies the room with grace.

Nguyet was previously in the cosmetics business, and this probably where her flare for beauty has played into the restaurant design. The dining room is filled with tables for 2 or 4, along with a small lounge area in front of the bar. There is a small wine room featuring a nice international selection of bubbles, white, rose and red wines. The bar is beautiful as is the cocktail list on the menu with what looks to feature some creative drinks.

Tried a refreshing Rekorderlig Strawberry Lime Cider, as well as some tasty dishes that included the Mango Salad, Flavourful chicken skewer, Crispy spring rolls, Honey garlic chicken wings and Hủ Tiếu Xào (wok-fried rice noodle with prawns)

The restaurant is open for dinner from Tuesday – Sunday, reservations are suggested and walkins will be accommodated whenever possible.

Bonjour Vietnam Bistro is located at 3944 Fraser Street in Vancouver. For reservations call them at 604 879 3633, and follow them on instagram @bonjourvietnambistro
