The BEST food in SF!

Hands down, Lams has the most delectable food in all of Sioux Falls! Everything from their pork dishes to the pho, to the appetizers or the salads. Every bite is so aromatic and bursting with flavor! Although the location is a bit out of the way, the place is packed whenever we go. If you're new to... read more

I had never had Vietnamese food before visiting Lam's. My husband and I decided to check it out. We had an appetizer platter with a variety of things on it. There were spring roll type things with great dipping sauces. Neither one of us ordered the pho, but we wish we would have since that is kind of their signature... More

I am a repeat diner at Lam's, mainly, because the food is delicious. But, also, the service there is always very prompt, the restaurant is clean, and the ambiance of the restaurant is pleasant. I am always puzzled why there is not more people dining there--probably because of the location. But, it is well worth the trip! The menu is... More

I've been traveling to the Sioux Falls area for a while, and we recently found Lam's. Our group all had Pho, and everybody LOVED it. The dining area is newly remodeled and the service was excellent. We will be back, over and over and over again. Most of us had a large bowl with extra noodles, and not one of... More

We stopped here for lunch on a whim, looking for some food diversity. The exterior looks like it used to be a church, but the inside was cute and very friendly. The service was great and very nice. I ordered the Spicey Pho and it was delicious! There was heat, but not overpoweringly so. My beau had the Lam Special... More

Been a supporter of this place since it opened it doors-the food is fresh tasting, appears to be healthy, is plentiful and well prepared. The menu selection is large and having this option in a city loaded with chain restaurants is appreciated. We especially like the summer bowl menu option and spring rolls. What we have noticed over time, is... More

We have recently developed an appreciation for Vietnamese food, thanks to Pho restaurant in our former hometown of Santa Clarita, CA. My wife found Lam's when we were passing through Sioux Falls (we're now South Dakota residents, although we RV full-time), and I'm really glad she did. Down the street from the Morrell meat packing plant, Lam's is a clean,... More

The food was good and authentic, but I wouldn't call the food amazing. The hardest part was communicating with the waiters. This is not their fault, but most of the waiters speak barely any English, so it was hard to communicate our needs. The restaurant building itself was small and not special. Overall it was average.

I was pleasantly surprised when my colleague took me to this new restaurant. Vietnamese iced coffee was much like Thai iced coffee that I was long craving for, and it really satisfied my craving. The main dish had many toppings and it was fulfilling. Would come back when in town.

We drive through Sioux Falls every year en route to Black Hills and Wyoming parks: sometimes stopping, sometimes not. Boy! From now on we will be sure to stop and time our meals just so we can eat at Lam's. It was the best meal of our entire vacation. We had the summer bowl (noodles, fresh veggies and salad, pork,...
