From Pho Nha Trang



Two Bamboo Restaurant is originated from Pho Nha Trang Restaurant which had been the only place serving Vietnamese food in Hastings. We have started to run and changed the name into Two Bamboo Restaurant since March 2020. 

Thai Cuisine is added to the menu serving parallelly with Vietnamese cuisine to make a variety of choices for our customers.

Our menu consists of the classic dishes found within Vietnam & Thailand. Our chefs always try their best to make and create brilliant dishes. We hope that you will enjoy the food, find some interesting in Asian Culture, especially Vietnam & Thailand. 

Chef ANDY 

Hi, I am Andy Huynh, was born and grew up in Vietnam. I started to learn Thai Language &Thai Culture from  Vietnam National University in Ho Chi Minh city, then I left for Thailand to further my study at Master's Degree & Doctoral later. After achieving my studying, I started working as a teaching language lecturer at a University in Bangkok, Thailand, meanwhile, I learn a Thai cuisine course as my hobby. 

I love Thai cuisine as much as my native one.  Actually,  I love cooking. I feel happy to cook and serve people with delicious and  "wow" dishes. 

Therefore, I decided to move to New Zealand, a beautiful country with nice people. I completed a diploma certificate of cooking European food at Cornell Institution of  Business and Technology in Auckland from 2017 and started my chef career at Chapel Bar & Bistro in Ponsonby, Grand Windsor Hotel on Queen Street in Auckland. 

I moved to Napier from July 2018 and worked for Zigg Zagg Cafe in Napier. Up to 2020, I would like to have my own restaurant on the purpose "to bring tasty dishes from Asia to the Bay".
