We openend our first Chinese restaurant in 1995 in Chemnitz, Germany. By 1997 two more restaurants had been opened in Erfurt and Suhl (Germany). All three restaurants were traditional Chinese restaurants.

In 1998 the first new concept Asian bistro was opened in Erfurt. This new restaurant concept named BAO ANH – the name derives from my youngest daughter Bao Anh – was then further developed with the help of the project management consultancy “GARLO PROJEKTMANAGEMENT”. BAO ANH can now be found in 7 locations across Germany.

In October 2003 BAO ANH Gastronomie GmbH was founded in order to manage the operations of all BAO ANH restaurants under one roof. Following a period of heavy competition the BAO ANH concept was updated in 2007 with the help of a new architectural office aimed at bringing the décor and look of the restaurants into a new league of trendsetting Asian bistros. The first restaurant with the new updated design concept opened in July 2007 in the well established shopping centre ECE Löhr-Center, Koblenz.Further locations across Germany followed: Hameln (March 2008), Aachen (October 2008) and Viernheim (April 2009).

In order to further expand the business the BAO ANH group is constantly looking for new locations, ideally in shopping centres, where the BAO ANH concept is a very well liked addition to established retail mixes.
