An oasis of Vietnamese in South Dakota...

Driving from coast to coast, we encountered Lam's on our third day of travel. What a pleasant surprise! After some hearty heartland cuisine, we really wanted a couple good bowls of bun & some pho broth, and that's exactly what we got. Some things we liked less: too much MSG in the pho broth.

My wife and I really like good Vietnamese food. We surely did not expect to find it in Sioux Falls, but we saw favorable reviews for Lam's on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. We were more than pleasantly surprised. The two dishes we had were well seasoned, plentiful and very reasonably priced. The serve we received, by... More

We were looking for something different than the regular chain restaurants to celebrate a birthday. Lam's was rated highly so we gave it a shot. We started with two pork and shrimp spring rolls which were fantastic. And we both had the Spring bowl which was wonderful as well. My husband likes things HOT, and they had a sauce on... More

Fabulous local food. Near John Morrell meat packing complex. The owner comes out and is quite the host. The food is some of the best Vietnamese I ever had. And a most helpful picture menu for the novice. WARNING the address is actually 1600 E Rice St., not 1000 as listed. Well worth the hunt!

I'm a vegan, so I've been adjusting my choice of restaurants to those who easily cater to special dietary needs. I find that Asian restaurants tend to be high up on that list. This restaurant is no exception. First, it's a very clean and new looking restaurant. The orange paint on the front wall by the register added a fresh,... More

What it lacks in atmosphere and location, it far exceeds in taste! The picture menu was very helpful as was the server who explained how to eat everything as to pull out the most flavor. Food was exceptional! I have never had egg rolls that delicious! Can't wait to get back there!

Great food. Great service. Simple, clean, bright decor. The meal was very authentic and the food exceptionally well prepared. An excellent value a bit off the beaten path. Well worth seeking it out. You really have to try this place.
