Ginza Ginza is the first and only restaurant in Turkey with an authentic Vietnamese and Southeast Asian menu. Within one month of its 2019 launch in Bodrum, Ginza Ginza received rave reviews from customers all over Turkey and the world. The restaurant quickly became recognized as one of the greatest additions to the food scene in Bodrum and Turkey and immediately received top-ratings on TripAdvisor and 5-star on Facebook.
The owner and head chef, Victoria Zhong, is an Asian-American of Vietnamese and Indian ancestry. She came to Turkey as a business investor and technologist. Not knowing the language well, she soon realized that cooking was a great way to connect and communicate with the locals. In 2019, she decided to start a restaurant and serve flavors from Asia, a move that many applauded and praised. After a successful launch in Bodrum, she decided to take her culinary experience and the Ginza Ginza name to Istanbul, where she launched her second resturant focusing on Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine.
Our current menu consists of traditional and authentic Vietnamese and other Southeast Asian noodle and rice dishes, and a fresh and wonderful selection of Japanese salads, udon soups, and sushi. Vietnamese food is loved by many all over the world for its simple yet delicate combination of spices, fresh vegetables, and aromatic herbs. The most popular Vietnamese dishes include Phở (a beef or chicken noodle soup), Bánh Mì (a flavorful and layered Pâté baguette or sandwich), Gỏi cuốn (fresh spring rolls made with rice paper and fresh herbs), Chả Giò (fried egg rolls filled with meat and vermicelli noodles), and Bún thịt nướng (thin noodle salad with beef and fresh herbs and vegetables). These are some of the hearty Vietnamese dishes that our menu will introduce to our Istanbul community. Please check our menu to view all Asian and Japanese Dishes. Chúc Ngon Miệng. Bon Appétit!
Ginza Ginza's new location is next to the famous Ortaköy Cami in Ortaköy-Beşiktaş, Istambul.
