Super Soups

Satisfying soups on a cold day or any time. Asian family type restaurant. Gretna's best kept secret!

Have been told that this restaurant is permanently closed because Wal Mart is building one of their small Wal Marts in this location. Too bad but we need another Wal Mart!

I like to bring vegetarian guests here who visit from out of town. The food is good, fresh, and simple. Place is clean and the service is prompt. No complaints, always on target.

Visitors to New Orleans should take a culinary trip over river to Gretna and enjoy some of the best Vietnamese cuisine this side of Ho Chi Minh City. Also prompt, friendly and helpful service. If it's good enough for Anthony Bourdain & John Besh, you gotta know it's good! They took a trip there for lunch, which is well documented... More

I drive from downtown NOLA to Gretna for this place. Perfect in every way. Food is delicious and the price is very reasonable. Don't forget the Vietnamese coffee and maccarons for dessert.

While visiting a friend brought us to Pho Tau Bay. From the outside it was unassuming but inside it has character and the food was amazing! Check out the Jasmine Ice Tea and the Pho! The flavor and authenticity were fabulous. I'm making a stop every time I visit!

One of the best beef pho' dishes I have head and love the spring rolls with the peanut sauce. My husband likes the crab man-goon and the beef pho. The outside is very deceiving as to what kind of place it may be on the inside but don't let that discourage you. The atmosphere inside is nice and they always... More

I was a little concerned. This place had been highly recommended by a friend and I convinced several people to hop in a car to drive from the French Quarter to Gretna for lunch. You definitely come here for the food! I wish I had stayed in NOLA longer because I would have liked to try their bahn mi as... More

The outside of the place is as ratty and rundown as anything I've ever seen -- However, the food is the best Vietnamese food I've ever eaten -- and I've eaten a lot of it. New Orleans is home to a large Asian community -- and this is the best place I've been in yet. The Pho has a broth... More
