Eating out is an important part of many citizens, especially for those who are in the middle and high classes.
The demand for dining out is increasing. According to research from Vietnam Credit, the number of Vietnamese people coming to restaurants in the three main cities of Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, and Danang reached 340 million, equivalent to $1.1 billion in revenue a quarter.
Hanoi is already well-known for being a rich cultural destination where gastronomists can find themselves a great variety of cuisines for their liking. Being a part of Hanoi's foodie community since the 90s, Japanese restaurants have become the favourites of Vietnamese people and expats living in the country.
The finesse, complexity, and sense of private dining of this wonderful cuisine not only fulfil restaurateurs’ interest in the market but also arouse the curiosity of diners about national culture and the exciting stories behind it. In recent years, it was not difficult to find a nice Japanese restaurant in the heart of Hanoi where there is an abundance of Japanese communities located such as in Trung Hoa, Dao Tan, and West Lake.
