Restaurant was recommended, we arranged leaving party of a very dedicated member of staff. The waitress was so miserable, unhelpful. Everything was so much trouble for her, her attitude was that she just wanted to go home. After our meal we all wanted coffee and was told they had no fresh milk.and no ice cream. Food was not the best... More

We both had (different) noodle bowl lunches, fresh tasty and filling and just perfect for a lunch - better than downstairs (wingYip)where we normally eat, and no queues to get in.

Me and my partner have eaten here twice now and we adore this place! The aura and atmosphere in this place is just like a typical restaurant in Vietnam, simplified architect designs inside the restaurant including the menu (it's just so Vietnamese, it feels like home haha!) and friendly staff. Our favourite dishes were the Green Papaya Salad, summer rolls,... More

Description
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.
