The first location of Vina Restaurant was opened in December of 1982 in St.Paul, Minnesota. In the next ten years, three more locations (Richfield, Midway and Uptown) were added. Since the first opening, Vina has impressed diners from Minneapolis, St.Paul and beyond. With the authentic Vietnamese cuisine, we have received recognitions from most local media such as, City Pages, Minneapolis and St.Paul magazines, St.Paul Pioneer Press Dispatch, Twin Cities Reader, Metro Magazine..etc...
Decades later,the restaurant popularity continues; even though the original founder now only maintains the location in Richfield. Throughout the years, our goal is still the same and that is to develop a healthier Vietnamese quick-service establishment and provide consistent quality and freshness to our beloved customers.
Here are some articles from local newspapers about Vina Restaurant throughout the years:
