“The triple threat - Food, Service, and Ambiance.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

I can not say enough about this place. Ambiance - intimate and warm. Staff - welcoming and personable. Accomodated our lack of German language, gluten allergies, and our need to show up without a reservation without even pausing for breath (even on a busy night).

Food - amazing appetizers, some of the best summer rolls I have ever tasted. unbelievable entrees. While the adults in our party were ooooing and ahhhing over the food, we also noticed the four year old (who had not been eating that well this trip) was devouring everything on his plate (including the vegetables).

If you have to choose between dessert or an additional entree to split - go for the entree.

The best Vietnamese food I have ever had.

“Absolute Excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

This small, lovely restaurant in München was one of the nicest overall experiences we had in the city. The decor was beautifully warm and elegant, without being overdone. The service from start to finish was friendly, pleasant, and genuinely welcoming. We showed up just after 6pm on a Friday night with no reservation, and they cheerfully worked to get us seated and fed without any fuss.

The appetizers and main dishes were, without exception, absolute excellence. Beef, chicken, seafood, vegetables - nothing failed to be delicious and beautifully balanced. My husband's herbal green tea with fresh spices was wonderful, and my hot plum wine was absolutely perfect. My 4-year-old son loved the fresh greens and herbs that came with his dish and loved his beef, which he declined to share until he'd had his fill.

The only imperfect piece of the whole experience was the desserts. We took an assortment to go, and they were indifferent. The exotic fruit selection was nice just for trying something different; otherwise, dessert was not up to the excellence of the rest of the meal.

The price for 4 entrees, 2 appetizers, 5 drinks, and 5 desserts was a meager 107€ before tip - ridiculously cheap for the quantity and overall quality. If you want an amazing Vietnamese meal in München, don't miss Annam - you'll be thrilled.

“Pricey but excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by local friends, and it matched their excellent description. Quite pricey by US standards... only slightly pricey by Munich standards. Entrees were a bit small, but delicious. Highly recommended.

“Very good vietnamese kitchen with caring details”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I live in Munich since 40 years and I know, There are many Vietnamese Restaurants and many of them are not really good, a lot of very sweet dishes, nothing special and of course lots of glutamate. Many People think that Glutamate is completely harmless and belongs to the vietnames kitchen like any other spice, but for me it´s a big plus that the Annam kitchen doesn´t use ist. What is also very Special about it is that you get lots of different herbs with your Food. This should be natural since frsh herbs are a Basic ingredient in the Vietnamese cuisine, but in most of the other places you get a few pieces of latice and maybe some Cilantro. I have eaten there 5 times and all the dishes I tried (Pho Bo, summerroll and some vegetarian dishes) have been delicious. Also the make very nice decorations, which is not really important, but it´s nice to have an orchid on your plate, it seems they really care about the customer. Another big plus: They fullfill Special wishes - I always order a mixture of Mineral water with cooking tab water, which of course is quiete unusal and many waitors refuse to serve it. But here - no Problem, I get my glass with warm mixed water and even a mintleave and a limeslice in it. Very nice. Only Problem: Since many other People seem to like it, it´s usually difficult to get a table in the evening, so better make a Reservation.
