Hansan Vietnamese Restaurants are a chain of restaurants which specialize in serving authentic Vietnamese food to customers. During the period of trouble in Indo China, the Chin family fled to Vietnam in 1980. Since the family had relatives in New Zealand, the family then migrated to New Zealand in 1990.
After adapting to the culture in the country, they started their first restaurant serving authentic Vietnamese food in 1999 at Panmure. They named their restaurant HanSan with han and, san derived from the Chinese and Cantonese word “looking at” mountain since the Panmure location of the first restaurant is facing Mount Wellington.
About Hansan Vietnamese Restaurants
The Chin siblings Han, San and jessica started the first restaurant at 525-529, Elleslie, Panmure Highway, Mount Wellington which served authentic Vietnamese food. In 2006 after the first restaurant was very successful, they started the second restaurant at 55, Nufield street in the Newmarket area. The success of these restaurants led to increase in interest from others, and the Chin family was able to franchise their business, with the first franchise restaurant starting at Unit E, 31, Link drive, Glenfield in 2007.
In 2008 they purchased a Malaysian restaurant Sri Mahkota in East Tamaki, which was listed for sale, and have opened other branches in Epsom, Symonds Street in Auckland of this chain to complement the Hansan restaurants since there is a lot of demand for Malaysian food.
