To our beloved friends, customers and supporters,
It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Viên - Vietnamese Banh Mi Shop will be permanently closing its doors on September, 1st 2023.
Over the past year, we've seen a significant growth in our business that our current location could no longer contain. We strived to find a suitable location and methods to elevate our business to the desired next stage. Unfortunately, amidst the particularly tough times for the hospitality sector, we were not able to find the ideal solution.
Meanwhile we’ve also encountered the challenge of striking a balance between our personal and professional lives. Ultimately, along with all other challenges, we made the decision to close the shop in order to prioritise our family above all else, especially with a new family member on the way.
Though we are closing the shop as is, this is definitely not the end. We are excited to return in the future with the lessons learned during our time in business.
Being the first bánh mì shop of Amsterdam has been an honour beyond words.
We’re grateful for the journey we’ve been on and for the support of everyone who’s crossed our path. We've made many friendships and met so many incredible people along the way. We loved serving you authentic Vietnamese food with a focus on fresh ingredients made from scratch in house daily.
We remain open as usual from Tuesday - Sunday from 11.00 - 16.00. This includes delivery and pick-up via UberEats and take-away from vien.nl. Our last day of opening will be Friday, September 1st.
We hope to see you in the upcoming month or otherwise on our next endeavour. Again, thank you for being a part of our story, and for helping us to create a space that will always hold a special place in our hearts.
We will keep in touch and update you on our next steps.
