I ate a really good Lok Lak at this place, with an amazing pepper sauce to it. My partner was a bit less impressed with the soup he ordered. The place was busy and the waiters kept bringing us wrong food and/or forgetting our order....More

We were invited by our tour operator to have dinner here as a welcome to Vietnam. I was very busy in the restaurant but they also had a 2nd floor, where a table for our group was reserved. Unfortunately the food did not impress me....More

Pots ‘n Pans is about innovation. Vietnamese cuisine infused with an international flair.Our food takes the best ideas from modern Vietnamese and puts a new spin on them. The flavours are familiar but done differently. We don’t want to detract from what we believe to be the core of Vietnamese cuisine which is a big emphasis on fresh and local ingredients. However, we believe that the produce found in Vietnam should lend itself to a wider range of cooking techniques and presentation.Pots ‘n Pans is a dynamic partnership between Know One Teach One (KOTO) and its training program graduates along with its international partner; Small Giants. KOTO is a not-for-profit organisation in Vietnam that is changing the lives of street and disadvantaged youth through vocational training. Small Giants is a boutique Australian impact investment company that is dedicated to businesses that are changing the world.
