Did not enjoy my chicken entree one bit, it was supposed to be a lime chicken but it was super sweet and had a weird smell and taste. As soon as the food was brought out the waiter brings us the check and throughout the whole time kept asking if we were done. He literally reached for my plate asking... More

I do agree with the other reviewer about this comment, that the restaurant wasn't that great yet the food wasn't that bad either. However I felt like the price little high for Vietnamese food though. The pho bo was definitely what I expected, the noodle was overcooked, the beef was tough and sliced into chunky pieces and most of all,... More

This restaurant already has a ton of great reviews, which is why we decided to try it. We were NOT disappointed. We had the Vietnamese ravioli, spring rolls for appetizers. They were fresh and amazing. I had the sweet and sour chicken and my husband had vermicelli noodles with tofu. Both dishes were out of this world. The place was... More

From the outside the place looks interesting with a retro neon sign and sitting on the edge of Philadelphia's Chinatown, you are hoping for a good taste of Vietnam. The first sign of maybe this isn't the best choice was that on a Friday night it was only about half full, when everywhere else in Chinatown was packed this night.... More

Is a very nice place, the food is awesome, I could try a Vietnamese beer which I never did before. Vietnamese coffes did not meet my expectations, but overall was a very good lunch.

I recently went back with some friends and I was so happy with the experience. It has not change at all. I have been coming to this restaurants for many years and the quality of the food has always been outstanding. I usually come with a group of friends so we order Polynesian cocktails, BBQ platter, Vietnamese raviolis, Vietnamese carpaccio... More

This restaurant failed to wow - rum drinks were fun and not too strong. The Pho was very bland, although in fairness to the restaurant we ordered the vegetable pho. My pho place at home still uses the beef broth - I think this was just veggie. The spring roll appetizer was exactly the same as spring roll noodle dish.... More

Last Saturday night we went to Vietnam Restaurant in Philadelphia. Whenever I am in Chinatown, I've usually defaulted to a Chinese Restaurant next door. But last night we ventured in after reading some very good reviews. Vietnam does not take reservations so we expected to wait for a table. At 7:45pm we got a table right away. Might I suggest...

Our family of 4 visited this restaurant on a recent Sunday at about 1:00p.m. in the afternoon. There were plenty of tables filled with diners and as we ate, many finished and left and many new customers came in. I remember being surprised by how busy they were for a Sunday afternoon. We all ordered different traditional noodle soups, and... More

I've been to Vietnam twice and I have to say that I fail to understand its popularity. Now I haven't been to the country, so perhaps the food is more authentic than we usually find here, but I enjoy Vietnamese food a lot more at other area restaurants. The staff are not particularly nice or attentive and the food is,... More
