MICHELIN Guide Hanoi | Ho Chi Minh City | Danang 2024 puts the emergent dining scene in Vietnam under the spotlight in its latest edition.

MICHELIN officially unveiled its latest MICHELIN Guide for Vietnam at an awards ceremony earlier this week. Announced at the InterContinental Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City on 28 June, the new edition awarded a total of 164 establishments across the cities of Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Da Nang. Vietnam’s 2024 guide comes just days after Singapore’s newest guide was announced on 25 June.

This much-awaited second release for Vietnam awarded in total seven restaurants each with one MICHELIN Star, along with 58 Bib Gourmand and 99 MICHELIN Selected entries. Among the new additions to the guide are 10 from Hanoi, 26 from Ho Chi Minh City, and a whopping 26 from Danang.

MICHELIN Guide Hanoi | Ho Chi Minh City | Danang 2024 in particular showcases Vietnam’s rich culinary diversity, featuring both refined venues and local eateries that embody Vietnam’s unique regional cuisines as well as restaurants that draw influences from French, Chinese, and other Southeast Asian cultures.

Earning their stars for the first time are Ho Chi Minh City’s Akuna, which offers creative European dishes with Vietnamese influences, as well as La Maison 1888 from Da Nang, which serves up tasting menus featuring top-shelf ingredients from Vietnam, France and Japan. Also joining the one star list is Cantonese restaurant The Royal Pavilion in Ho Chi Minh City, promoted from its MICHELIN Selected position from last year.

They join one MICHELIN Star restaurants from the previous selection – Gia, Hibana by Koki, Tầm Vị, and Ănăn Saigon.

Then there’s Nén Danang, a MICHELIN Selected restaurant that was also awarded the first MICHELIN Green Star in Vietnam. Nén Danang impressed with its commitment to sustainable gastronomy, promoting hyperlocal produce in a farm to table approach.

As a new city addition to the MICHELIN Guide for Vietnam in 2024, aside from one MICHELIN Starred La Maison 1888 (pictured above) Da Nang also received 16 Bib Gourmand and 19 MICHELIN Selected, effectively doubling the number of venues recognised by MICHELIN in Vietnam.

Vietnam‘s three cities – Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Da Nang – each have their own characteristics,” Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides, pointed out.

“The country’s culinary scene sees the vitality, passion, and creativity constantly surprising the market. Not to mention that renowned chefs are increasingly opening restaurants in Vietnam, coupled with a new generation of Vietnamese chefs emerging with a growing customer base. Therefore, Vietnam is indeed becoming a more interesting destination on the world’s food map, to attentively keep an eye on,” she added.
