In 2015, Dhruv was helping his friend run a guesthouse in Manali. One day, his friends from Delhi came to visit him and brought along a girl they met on the bus. That girl was Trang! It turned out, Trang grew up in Vietnam and Germany. They soon realised that they both shared a deep passion for food and cooking.
Opening his own cafe had been Dhruv's dream since his time in Canada where he first experienced the goodness and comfort of Vietnamese food. In late 2018, Trang and him finally put down their ideas of Vietnam-ease Càphê on paper.
A few months later, they both went on a culinary adventure to Vietnam. Fascinated by the country's incredible charm and cultural heritage, they both fell in love even more with the cuisine, people and culture. One day, while walking down the road near Hoan Kiem lake, Dhruv and Trang decided that the turtle must become a symbol of the brand as it stands for courage, longevity, and heritage.
In late 2019, along with Dhruv's sister Shivalika, they started curating dinner experiences from their home in Gurgaon to bring a taste of Vietnamese cuisine and cultural heritage to those who share the same passion.
