About Renkon Restaurant

RENKON (n): Lotus Root.

Taking advantage of the current interest in and appreciation for Japanese culture and food in Vietnam, as well as the growing base of expats in Saigon and the preferences of our founding shareholders, The Collective’s first original Concept is a modern izakaya called Renkon, which is the Japanese word for lotus root – one of the key symbols of Vietnam and an expression of The Collectives deep roots in Vietnam.

Renkon is situated in District 1, Saigon in The Refinery restaurant complex in a 3-story walkup with street level entry. This unique location simultaneously elicits Vietnam’s alley culture, yet also has direct access to the city’s most desirable downtown catchment area.

As a modern izakaya, Renkon’s kitchen features a traditional Japanese binchotan grill in an open counter setting, and a lively bar that delivers a unique and focused beverage program. This includes an extensive sake selection that will leverage The Collective’s unique and direct relationships with boutique Japanese producers.

This ensures exclusivity on some of the world’s best sake and, ultimately, one-of-a-kind experiences. The menu features Japanese tapas that are meant to be shared and paired with great drinks; a concept that plays perfectly intothe Vietnamese tradition of “family style” dining.

The design is dramatic, with strong brutalist features that overall achieve a modern, streamlined, and functional space with subtle elements of Japanese architecture.
