Vietnamese Street Kitchen set for Bullring launch

Vietnamese Street Kitchen is due to open at Birmingham’s Bullring next month, creating 30 jobs.

Independently owned and family run, the new VSK restaurant joins the Resorts World venue and replaces the (now closed) Brindleyplace venue.

Due to open in November, the new Bullring site will be set over two floors and includes an upstairs cocktail bar as well as large dining space below. There’s also a heated outdoor terrace to accommodate the new tier two restrictions.

Work is underway to convert the space previously occupied by the Handmade Burger Co chain that closed at the start of the year.

Vietnamese Street Kitchen’s operations manager Oliver Ngo, said: “We’re delighted to add to our restaurant portfolio, especially during 2020 – a difficult time for the hospitality industry and our fellow Brummies. The decision to move from Brindleyplace to Bullring makes sense in the current climate, with less people working in offices, but actually I’ve been looking to have a restaurant in Bullring for some time. It’s exciting seeing it all coming together.

“I’m Birmingham born and bred and love our city – I want to contribute something outstanding to it as well as showcase the joy of Vietnamese food. Guests can expect fresh food, innovative drinks and friendly service, whether they’ve popped in for a long lunch or an after-work cocktail.

“We’re assembling a great team back and front of house and the renovation work with Faber Designs – the same interior design company behind Adam’s, Harborne Kitchen and Folium – is coming along nicely. We’re sure this is going to be really special and nothing like what the Bullring as seen before.”

Vietnamese Street Kitchen is due to open to guests early November 2020 and bookings will be live ahead of opening.
