Renkon is located old alley/courtyard that was long ago Saigon’s old opium manufacture, and is a modern type of the Japanese Izakaya, which are basically informal bars in Japan where people go after work to eat and drink in a lively, cosy atmosphere. But Renkon takes it up a notch with a more stylish, contemporary feel, definitely a lot more upscale than most Izakayas, though it also has a very social feel, especailly on the first floor. The open kitchen prepares food and drink that is Japanese-inspired and the interior design is from a world-class architect Sean Dix. The prices of course reflect this upscale vibe.

The food at Renkon focuses on “robata” which is Japanese charcoal grill and Kushiyaki which is skewered and grilled meat and vegetables. The ingredients are both Japanese and local and are sourced both locally from places like Saigon’s Central Ben Thanh Market an internationally from places as far as Tokyo’s Tsukiji Market. The drink menu is one of their focuses with many types of Japanese shochu, unique signature cocktails, sake, beers, and wine.

The team and the service always come across as highly professional and really into their work.

There are weekly promotions like the Hip-Hop Nights every Friday and Saturday, JetFresh Fridays, and their daily 50% off happy hour. The music pumping on the first level is usually a smooth hip-hop mix.

Lunch is available Monday to Friday from 11:30 – 2pm – build your own skewers and side lunch or try their pre-set lunches that start from 180,000 VND.

And what does Renkon mean? In Japanese it means lotus root, which is actually Vietnam’s national flower. Cool!
