KOTO VAN MIEU IS OPEN!
KOTO Van Mieu is our flagship training restaurant, nestled next to the Temple of Literature. For 20 years, we proudly served guests from all around the world and important dignitaries from Bill Clinton and Prime Minister Julia Gillard to Margrethe II of Denmark.
It all started in 1999 when KOTO’s first training restaurant opened on Van Mieu providing at-risk and disadvantaged youth with an opportunity to break the poverty cycle by forging a better future for themselves, their families and their communities.
Twenty-three years on, our over 1,200 graduates now include executive and sous chefs, hotel and resort general managers, business owners as well as university graduates. All are contributing to their families and society.
