Having been to Vietnam & eaten in many Vietnamese restaurants in other countries, I have to say I didn't think much of the An Nam. I actually suspect it is run by Chinese, not Vietnamese. We ordered 2 Phos at £9.00 each. They appeared in...More

We had the set Menu B for lunch - amazing portions and delicious. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. The service was attentive but not encroaching and the cost was unbelievably great value for cost.

Opened in November 2006, An Nam Restaurant is Croydon's favourite spot for authentic Vietnamese food. In early 2007 owner Myoi Cao surprised locals by winning Croydon's Oriental Chef of the Year competition, beating the likes of Wagamama and Miso head chefs to the top. An Nam has since grown from strength to strength, popular among south Londoners and even far-off visitors from around the UK. About us: Chef and owner Myoi Cao has lived in south London since 1981 and worked in the restaurant trade for over three decades. Her culinary roots, however, are found halfway across the world in the southern Mekong region of Vietnam. Myoi had long-memorised her mother's recipes and over the years has expanded her repertoire with regular trips back to southern Vietnam and Cambodia. Southern Vietnam ("An Nam") is known for its abundance of seafood, fresh vegetables and herbs, and for its bold flavours - lemongrass, fish sauce, tamarind and chilli.
