Located on Đồng Khởi, one of the most crowded streets in Saigon, Am Dang Thai Typhoon Vietnam doesn’t have a large space. However, the designers of this restaurant still managed to separate it into two parts.

On entering the restaurant, you will see stools and tables just like any street food stalls in Thailand or Vietnam. This is the space where you can enjoy Thai noodles. This space is next to a long hallway designed to look like a railway station, giving an impression of the Bangkok urban landscape.

Following this railway station-inspired noodle, you will get to the main area of the restaurant. This space combines the two main colours of blue and red, signifying the harmony of Thai and Chinese cultures in Bangkok.

Unlike the urban vibe of the noodle station, the main space has a high ceiling and lots of plants, providing you with a roomy and airy atmosphere.

The Am Dang Typhoon in Saigon is in fact a brand of the original Am Dang Typhoon Thailand, which has been listed in the Michelin Guide in 2011.

The chefs and sous-chefs of Am Dang Typhoon Thailand usually come to the Saigon restaurant to do the cooking themselves. Moreover, the Vietnamese team is also sent to Bangkok to receive training, so you can be confident about the quality of dishes here.

With a strong reputation, original taste, and a recognisable location, the prices vary from VND120,000(~USD5.17) to VND1,200,000 (~USD51.80), a bit higher than other Thai restaurants in Saigon.
