Created in 2008, and entirely renovated in 2015, La Badiane (French, for the Star Anise spice) is heralding its claim to be one of the best restaurants in Vietnam dedicated to fusion of flavors and international gastronomy.

When coming in, an open-sky corridor planted with luxuriant vegetation leads you towards the heart of the restaurant. One’s attention will be instantly caught by the multitude of perfumes and aromas flowing out of the open front kitchen.
After several years of professional training experience in prestigious restaurants such as Lutetia Hotel (Paris 75006), L’Alcazar (Paris 75006), or Le Taillevent (Paris 75008), under the lead of both French and international Chefs, Benjamin Rascalou is an adept of World Cuisine.
Whether inspired by Mediterranean countries, the Antilles or India, Chef Benjamin Rascalou’s dishes are the outcome of an encounter between continents, civilizations and cultures; a delicate mixture of flavors and spices. «What I aim to offer is a fusion of flavors, not only a fusion of origins», often explains Chef Benjamin Rascalou to guests.
«I use very simple ingredients from different regions of the world, and combine them in a new way. From a mixture of universal ingredients, most unexpected dishes can be made».
