Luke Nguyen has followed a culinary career for over 30 years. He is renowned for a chain of restaurants worldwide like Red Lantern and Vietnam House. He judged Master Chef Vietnam seasons 1 and 2 and was a special guest on chef Gordon Ramsay’s Great Escape and Master Chef Australia.

Some street-corner dishes have made it to all corners of the world, like Vietnamese sandwich banh mi, listed among the world's top 20 street foods by Fodor's Travel, a U.S. travel site.
