you won't find better Vietnamese food anywhere stl. I highly recommend the Bo Luc Lac (#89). Order some hot tea and pick one of their quality appetizers. I visit this restaurant frequently. It is a bit difficult to find. It's located directly behind the Best Buy.

I can't really build upon the other positive reviews, but if you were a fan of pho, you will find that this has some of the best around. It is a great carry out option, and if it's not busy it's great to dine in as well. It really stacks up on the weekends, so go early or late.

My son enjoyed his wonton noodle soup. He also ordered stir-fried vegetables in peanut sauce. He said he enjoyed it too. My wife ordered pho and she said she enjoyed it too. I ordered the Mi Bho Kho (Beef Stew Noodles). I was a bit disappointed because it was very spicy and the beef was a bit tough. It was... More

The fact that we had to go back again to get a table, speaks of the immense popularity if this restaurant. Friday evening dinner meant a wait time of thirty minutes which made us set out early for Saturday lunch when we got a table. Very good authentic food with plenty of greens. The pork mince bun Banh Bao with... More

My wife has a theory that a crowded restaurant usually means very good food. The restaurant was crowded. This food was excellent. We only had to wait about five minutes for a table. We ordered a dinner for two and we had enough leftovers for another meal the next day. Food was fresh, vegetables were crisp, sauces were flavorful. Atmosphere... More

The best Asian food and the best service that I have experienced for some time. All of the dishes were delicious but I especially was most fond of the Pad Thai. Everything was excellent, including the service. I will never go to another Asian restaurant in St. Louis other than Mai Lee. The wine was so reasonably priced, we stayed... More

Usually a wait to be seated, but worth it. Food never disappoints and the service is always fast. Try the pork bun for the starter...excellent!

I had a severe craving for pho and this place came highly recommended from friends. I had the spring rolls and egg rolls as appetizers and they were both out of this world. The pho was the best I've ever had. The broth was amazing and the meat was super tender and perfectly medium rare. The only problem...the service wasn't... More

Stopped in here around 4ish for a drink and spring rolls (to go) which were the best I've ever had. Bartender was very friendly and taught us how to make ginger ale from scratch. Always love learning new things! Stopped again the following day for late lunch with no wait. We ate on the patio; not much on scenery but... More

We were very surprised there was a waiting list at 7:30 on a Sunday evening. Only 8-10 minutes though Food was very good but my wife does not eat pork and selected an item that did not have pork in the menu description but when it came there was pork in it. Other wise it was outstanding. Large portions and... More
