About Us

LÚA, meaning “rice plant” in Vietnamese, pays homage to the core ingredient of Vietnamese cuisine – rice. This ubiquitous grain forms the foundation of countless dishes, from the iconic noodle soup Pho to savory rice platters and even sweet desserts like “chè.” The restaurant’s name celebrates this fundamental element and embodies the Vietnamese culinary heritage.

Chef Khang Nguyen

I am an accomplished chef with a deep-rooted passion for Asian cuisine, bringing over 8 years of experience in creating authentic and innovative dishes that showcase the rich diversity of Asian flavors. My culinary philosophy revolves around highlighting the freshness and quality of ingredients. I firmly believe in sourcing locally and seasonally, ensuring that each dish is an ode to the natural flavors and textures that define Asian cuisine. Drawing inspiration from the bold spices of Thai cuisine, the delicate balance of flavors in Vietnamese dishes, the artful presentation of Japanese cuisine, the comforting simplicity of Italian classics, and the robust flavors of American fare, I take pride in crafting dishes that surprise and delight the palate.
