A group of us - five people - ordered a variety of items for takeout. I was expecting something light and fresh, and instead was left with dishes that all tasted the same, as if the same thick base was used, and then tofu or chicken or beef was subsequently stirred in. The portions were huge and filling, but not... More

We visit Duluth several times per year. Have seen this restaurant many times but had never stopped in - until today. We are big fans of Vietnamese food, but this was the worst we have ever had. I ordered Special Spicy Mock Duck with Lemongrass, extra spicy. I'm not sure what they gave me, but it had no spice, no... More

It was so nice to see a Vietnamese restaurant while we were visiting. It was very cold and Pho soup hit the spot. Service was friendly and prompt and portions were generous. I had the Shrimp Pho and it was better than my favorite place at home.

This place is a preferred stop of mine when i am in Duluth. Food is very good and service is always very good as well. Be careful...the egg rolls and sauce are addicting!

We have been going to the north shore for over 20 years and stop here for lunch on the way up and on the way home. Always tasty food with a large variety of choices and friendly service. Some gluten free options. The sauce for egg rolls is yummy, you might want to ask for a second serving. This is... More

everytime I am in Duluth, I stop here! I have never had a bad meal. I have never had the same thing twice, even was pleasantly surprised with the Mock Duck! Service fast and friendly, prices very resonable, especially when considering the amount... I'm a big eater, and have never left hungry!

A popular street food in Vietnam, Pho (which can be pronounced a number of ways, don't let anybody tell you different!) is a soup consisting of broth, linguine-shaped noodles, herbs, and a variety of meat choices, primarily beef, chicken, or shellfish. The geographical origin and timing of its origin is subject to debate. When i was growing up in Duluth,... More

The spicy lemongrass chicken was delicious as was the sweet-and-sour pork. The portions were huge. The egg rolls were good, not spectacular. Have the jasmine ice tea, the delicate sweetness is an excellent counterpoint to the spicy lemongrass. Prices were reasonable, service was incredibly fast, food was yummy and ambience was non-existent. I would definitely have lunch here again next... More
