Intimate authentic Japanese teppanyaki
" an extraordinary event! "

On Friday, September 9th, we hosted an intimate authentic Japanese teppanyaki dinner at the Kobe Teppanyaki Villa in Ho Chi Minh City's District 3.

Sixteen guests were greeted with glasses of Picini 1882 Prosecco accompanied by mini croissants and cocktail sausage rolls from Ryoyu Bakery in the restaurant's courtyard.

Thereafter, Maître Restaurateurs Minh Le and Grace Pham, and Executive Chef David Thai - who is a Maître Rôtisseur - ushered guests upstairs for a dinner that could only be described as pure beauty and amazement.
