International Dine About Town (iDAT) February 2016

Come meet other RPCVs and get your pho-fix as we gather at Kien Giang Vietnamese restaurant on Tuesday February 23 at 6:30pm. This place serves up the real deal yummy stuff!

Kien Gang is located at 5845 Charlotte Pike, Nashville.


While the address is 5845 Charlotte, the building is not directly on the street. Rather, it is in a lot up an inclined double-divided driveway. The driveway is across from Richland School. There is a large billboard for K&S International Market next to the double driveway. K & S is in the same lot up that hill. If you use Google maps…you can follow “street view” right up the hill to the restaurant — on the left as you approach the top. (GOOGLE)

Please RSVP to Denny…and, if you don’t mind, please include your phone for last-minute texts or updates. Denny’s phone is818-422-9770. (You can also text your RSVP if you like.)

Giữ ấm và nhìn thấy bạn ăn tối sớm.
