With a continuous unique culinary inspiration of “Fire – Charcoal – Smoke”, Chapter Dining shines a spotlight on distinctive grilling techniques, particularly the use of charcoal. This age-old technique finds new life in the contemporary context, breathing new vitality into Vietnamese cuisine. Under the guidance of Chef Quang Dũng, the essence of the Northern regions’ mastery of flames is harnessed to infuse dishes with depth and complexity, creating a bridge between tradition and modernity.

The prime flame-grilled cuisine has inspired both the exterior and interior design of Chapter Dining. Chapter embodies a balance of strength and elegance in its design style, harmoniously incorporating natural materials, such as raw iron, rough wood, textured stone blocks, and gracefully curved corten steel in various unique forms. The impressive architecture and interior not only attract passers-by, but have also been honored with the LIV Hospitality Design Awards in the “Interior Dining and Eating Space” category in 2022.
