For a whole in the wall their food is delicious, cheap, and fast! Although they do forget to refill your drink, but they have gotten better. The place is usually packed, but even with lots of people you get your food in a timely manner. Of course I always order the meatball pho and spring rolls. You cannot go wrong... More

Every time I visit my best friend in KC, this is a must eat on my list. This was my second time there and it was just as yummy. We started with Banh Tom Chien - basically sweet potato fries and shrimp. My BFF ordered Pho Bo and I ordered noodles. Both entrees were generous in size and very filling.... More

I am a Vietnam Veteran of the United States Army. I arrived at the Vietnam Cafe at approximately 14:30 hours to find a line of people waiting to be seated in a small Restaurant. While i was waiting I had enough time to talk to some of the others patrons in line which gave me time to ask them about... More

Kind of a hole in the wall and doesn't have much for drinks (beer), but the food is worth it. Pho is great, as is the Bun is also excellent.

Really good pho, and mixed plate. Prices are low, and quantity is high......always a good sign when a restaurant is packed with its Ethnic origin :-)

The Vietnam Cafe is a small restaurant that is crowded with as many tables and booths as they can fit in. Why? The food is so good that with fewer seats even more people would be lined up at meal times waiting for a seat, you do get to meet others while seated. Food is fresh and fast...great pho but... More

Very nice, downtown restaurant, with what seems like authentic Vietnamese food. The pho is fantastic, a bit on the sweet side, but really good. Prices are nice, and don't forget the sweet potato fries - really good, and with greens to go with them that work.

The pho was wonderful, the spring rolls tasted very fresh, and the service was efficient. We will definitely return.

Anytime we have friends or family visit, this is a must go to. Their food is amazing, and has been a favorite place to everyone we have taken there. I don't get downtown enough, but if I am going this is my top choice every time. YUM!

There were four of us and we all had something different. All three different noodles, pho, bun bo hue and bun cha gio were good. Banh Xeo was outstanding; crispy on the edge and not soggy even though they were loaded with ingredients inside. The place is small but it is worth the wait if you get there at a... More
