Chef Nguyễn and his sister, co-founder and creative director, Amélie Nguyễn are prepared to bring the best of Vietnamese cuisine, culture, and design to Good Thief.

Since opening Anh and Chi in 2016, the pair have been on a mission to redefine Vietnamese cuisine in the Pacific Northwest, transforming their parents’ legacy dish, Pho Hoang, into a modern culinary landmark and MICHELIN Guide Bib Gourmand pick.

Born to Vietnamese refugees and raised in East Van, the siblings named ‘Good Thief’ for the inspiration they’re taking from their heritage.

“With Good Thief, we’re inviting our community to explore the depth of Vietnamese culture through adventurous and unexpected culinary journeys,” says Amélie. “Our new venture will offer unique flavours and experiences that foster connections and create lasting memories.”

So there you have it, Vancouver. Stay tuned for more info as it comes – including more details about the menu and an official opening date!
