IN a city where restaurants come and go with an alarming
speed, Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok’s signature Vietnamese restaurant has stood the test of time.
Centara Grand Ladprao Bangkok’s award-winning Vietnamese restaurant offers a selection of exotic creations with an emphasis on the natural goodness and nutritional value of the ingredients. The restaurant serves authentic Vietnamese food and while the French influence is apparent in many dishes served at Le Danang, many dishes are kept true to tradition.
Carefully chosen for the occasion by Chef Suparb Sawansuk, the signature dishes combined Vietnamese and French dining experiences to present a modern taste of Indochina. The dishes included: Xa Lat Qua Bo Voi Thit Cua (B280++) – a combination of fresh avocado salad, aromatic herbs, topped with crab meat; Tom Sot Com Tuoi (B490++) – sautéed prawns in a tangy orange sauce; Ca Tuyet Nuong Sot Me (B890++) – grilled snow fish with tangy tamarind sauce; Banh Xeo Sai Gon Voi Ga & Tom (B180++) – crispy Saigon rice crêpes filled with minced chicken, fresh prawns, mushrooms and yellow beans; Pho Cuon Voi Cua Bay Chien & Rau Thom (B240++) – a dish of fresh rice spring rolls with crispy soft shell crab and herbs; and Cuu Cot Let Com Rang Nghe (B780++) – ground black peppered lamb and mint cutlet served with seafood garlic fried rice.
A buffet menu is also available daily for both lunch and dinner for B800++ per person, excluding beverages.
Featuring French-colonial mansion style decor, the restaurant offers a quiet elegant atmosphere. Greeted by the glass and wood panel announcing the restaurant’s name upon entering, the expectation of all guests are answered with friendly smiles and superb service from the staff.
Parking is available at Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok or the Central Ladprao shopping complex.
