Asiana Food Town, an underground food market at the September 23 Park in city downtown, could be an ideal gathering place for those wishing to find a fresh and unique dining venue and enjoy authentic Vietnamese dishes of different regions and Asian cuisine.

Located in a 5,000-square-meter basement at Zone B of September 23 Park in District 1, adjacent to the backpacker area surrounded by Pham Ngu Lao-Bui Vien-De Tham streets, the food court draws huge attention from local youths and foreign tourists during the weekend.

Covering 1,500 square meters, the food market mirrors the culinary and cultural space of old Asian streets with more than 300 seats and nearly 100 street food stands of Vietnam, Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and India.

Upon arrival at the food court for the first time, guests may be impressed by a huge number of restaurants selling dishes in both Vietnamese and Asian cuisine. The venue has its eye-catching and deluxe interior décor, giving diners feelings of something old and nostalgic with sparkling yellow lights from splendid chandeliers, red lanterns, and wooden long tables. 

Those who love the taste of delicious dishes of different regions of Vietnam can visit some eateries such as hu tieu suon My Tho (noodle soup with pork), bun bo Hue (Hue-style beef noodles), bun mam Minh Nhat (noodles with broth made of fermented fish), and bo la lot Co Ba (beef wrapped with betel leaf).

A highlight of the food market is the presence of many restaurants selling authentic Asian foods such as Eat Thai with Thai-style hotpots and desserts, Taj Mahal serving Indian curry treat, and Nori Express with Japanese popular dishes such as Sushi. Sashimi, and Poki.

“We always come to the food court on weekends to savor sweet soups at Che Viet eatery with reasonable prices apart from buying fashion items at Taka Plaza in the basement”, a young couple said.  

Guests can find Asiana Food Town open daily from 8.30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
