Good Pho in Chinatown

I hit this place up on New Year's Eve, and got the Pho Dac Biet. It was quite good. Not Eden Center or Upper Darby amazing, but pretty dang good pho. I was served quick, it was hot, cheap, and yummy. The place has a weirdish decor that doesn't feel like the typical Viet place, but it was... read more

Tasty dining at Nam So'n restuarant in China Town. Very well priced, friendly staff that take time to explain the menu and unlisted options! The experience is not rushed as with some other restuarants. Great eatery!!!

It was difficult to make a choice from the menu after walking by many tables where diners were enjoying delicious looking food. We finally decided on the $27 "menu for two" which included spring rolls, rice cakes, beef, vegetables and lettuce for wrapping. There was also an interesting piece of sugar cane wrapped with some sort of shrimp mixture. It... More

I was here for lunch today and ordered the "Suon Heo Lan Bot Chua Ngot" (sweet and sour pork) for $10.75. White rice was included. They served complimentary tea but I ordered a Diet Coke ($1.75?). I enjoyed my meal. My pork dish consisted of chunks of pork inside a roundish batter in a sweet and sour sauce with vegetables... More

The food was exactly what I ate on my trip to Vietnam. Don't order a starter unless you are very hungry! Main course was more than enough for us

My wife and I were introduced to Nam Son by a neighbor who had frequented the restaurant while on a work assignment in NYC. The restaurant was just around the corner from our hotel in the heart of the China Town fresh produce and fish markets. ALL of the menu choices we selected were outstanding...very fresh and well prepared and... More

I went there for lunch with a couple of friends. The food was delicious. I had the best calamari ever as a starter. Chicken and noodles were also very tasty.

This place is great and getting there you pass all of the fantastic seafood stores next to it. My family loves coming here, the food is amazing. My wife loves the shrimp dishes, my son loves the pork chops on rice. The soups are also excellent. Green papaya salad is awesome.

The taste is good but nothing too special. Comparing to other restaurants in New York, it's not an expensive one but the dishes are pretty easy to make.

These days I've been craving Vietnamese pho in NYC. This is my first try for this restaurant . I ordered combination of beef pho,which was very big size bowl. The broth was good,not too salty or too much MSG. I added Siruccha sauce to spice up its taste. The server was friendly and attentive,refilled my tea frequently. Around $10 with... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
