Come Together: Named for the Vietnamese word for dishes to share over drinks, Nhau marks chef Que Vinh Dang’s return to Hong Kong’s dining scene after a two year hiatus.
Look & Feel: Located in a cosy alcove near Cat Alley and Queen’s Road Central, Nhau is casual and convivial, with bright interiors that take their cue from traditional Vietnamese design without being contrived.
On the Menu: Instead of defaulting to classic — yet possibly a mite overdone — Vietnamese dishes like pho and banh mi, Nhau focuses on small Vietnamese plates with a contemporary twist. Think banh mi rice tacos and fish sauce dry aged striploin finished off with desserts like Southeast Asian-inspired sundaes.
Meet the Chef: Dang worked under chefs like Rocco DiSpirito and Geoffrey Zakarian before landing in Hong Kong. After spearheading Quest and TLBS, he returned to his Vietnamese roots with Nhau.
FYI: Located across from the restaurant is an associated bottle shop where diners can feel free to hang out at as well.
