It is the tranquil space that connects you closely to nature, especially the lotus flowers, that first draws you to Hum (in all three locations). Hum is the name of the Sanskrit mantra “Om Mani Padme Hum”, which means “the Jewel in the Lotus.”. In this context, the word hum might be interpreted as the lotus flower, which is the symbol of Buddhism and also the national flower of Vietnam.
From the delicate, nurturing food as well as the human-nature connection, the restaurants offer the state of mind, the feeling of peace. Hum creates an environment for customers to enjoy the moment with their loved one, their own personal sensations, and be conscious of the food they eat.
The menu here is Southeast Asian-inspired, with the spirit of Vietnam cuisine at its core. In addition to the fresh ingredients from the region, the right spices, the balance of tastes, and the aesthetic decor contribute to the harmony of the dishes. We guarantee the freshness and originality of our vegetables and ingredients, as well as our eco-friendly and health-centred principles.

Along with the food, special clear drinks here are an excellent accompaniment to the meal. They consist primarily of mineral water mixed with fresh herbs and/or seasonal fruits and flowers.
