Face masks are the most effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19. All staff and customers must wear a mask at all times except when seated and food is served.
Tables are spaced 8 feet apart and parties must maintain 6 feet of distance from other parties except where unavoidable, in which case close contact must be as brief as possible.

Bistro Mon Cheri was founded by renowned chef Kimmy Tang, and her first collaboration with Vietnamese chef Chris Nguyen and his family. Fresh ingredients, love, passion and health conscience approaches are the main elements of chef Tang’s made from scratch dishes. Chef Nguyen was born and raised in Saigon, Vietnam, where he grew up learning the traditions of dedicated Vietnamese cooking in a large family of authentic Vietnamese chefs.
Chef Kimmy Tang is one of the pioneers of Asian - Fusion cuisine, with a successful career which spans for over 30 years, with six restaurants under her belt from Beverly Hills to Sunset Boulevard and Greater Los Angeles, awards at numerous competitions including First Place at the Mitsuwa’s Kitchen Masters Competition. Previous restaurants include Michelia in Beverly Hills and 9021PHO’s locations in Thousand Oaks, Glendale, Beverly Hills, Sherman Oaks and West Hollywood.
