about us

We are a family owned restaurant that has been a Des Moines staple since February of 1989. Á Đông is locally owned and operated. The name Á Đông is Vietnamese for East Asian, which refers to both our heritage and the style of food that we serve. Another fun fact is that you’re currently sitting in our second location, and we promise to be here for a long time.

If this is your first time here, you will notice that our menu is quite extensive. We offer an extensive variety of soups, noodles, and rice entrees. In addition, we have an award winning vegetarian menu with many vegan options. Our staff is always able to provide recommendations should you feel lost. Please let us know if you have any food allergies, as some of our entrees are garnished with peanuts.

We hope you enjoy your stay, and greatly appreciate your patronage!
