Viet Chopsticks owner Ken Dinh has filled his new Van Ness restaurant with handmade furniture and art pieces from Vietnam as well as handpainted wall murals courtesy of his father-in-law.
A first look at the new Viet Chopsticks!

Exciting news, Viet Chopsticks Fine Vietnamese Restaurant & Bar in Van Ness is now open! We met up with proud owner Ken Dinh yesterday as he showed us around his third, and latest, Viet Chopsticks restaurant.

With an eye for design, Ken has selected authentic Vietnamese furniture, art, crafts and whimsical touches to fill his restaurant with the intention of creating a familiar sense of home for Vietnamese patrons, and a fun getaway for visitors. The walls of Viet Chopsticks are filled with hand-painted murals depicting scenes of Vietnam, created by a local artist who also happens to be Ken's father-in-law.

Viet Chopsticks' extensive menu is filled with traditional Vietnamese dishes that "use fresh herbs, meat, seafood, vegetables and spices to reach a fine taste." In addition to their wide variety of dishes, you'll find a full bar with beer, wine and cocktails. Ken's in the process of applying for an outdoor permit so keep an eye out for future patio seating!

Most of all, Ken wants everyone to know how excited he is to be in Van Ness and genuinely looks forward to connecting with our community. He tells us his favorite part of being a restaurateur and the reason he does it is because of the people.
