Delicious Vietnamese cuisine

Quaint and classy Vietnamese restaurant on the outskirts of philly's Chinatown. Everything we ordered was delicious (spring rolls, pho, shaking beef, nem nuong, seafood hot pot....we were hungry!). We look forward to visiting again.

Vietnam restaurant has fabulous food and is a great affordable option for a less expensive meal in the city. It is one of my favorite places to eat in the city!

A more older style of restaurant, but the staff are friendly and attentive. The menu is very extensive. The papaya salad is good, the beef carpaccio is excellent and the duck soup is also very tasty. The coconut and black bean pudding is also delicious.

Fresh, tasty, fast and affordable! What more can you ask for? I have been visiting this restaurant as far back as when it looked like your grandmothers kitchen! With all the renovations -- the food is just as fabulous as ever. Order family style for the appetizers -- meatballs and crispy spring rolls are a perennial favorite. Then the squid,... More

We had ordered a pho bok tok, some vegetables and a dessert (black eyed peas). We were so surprised and disappointed... I have grown up with eating pho regularly in France and I have never eaten something like that. The soupe was red, the rice noddles were too thin and almost tasteless. Only the beef was tender, but there wasn't... More

My three star rating is based on value for the dollar. I was jones'n for PHO on a wintery day. My usual place on Race and 9th was closed. I had been wanting to try this as part of my goal to eat at every restaurant in Chinatown. This one has a cozy warm feel. I must say I was... More

Generally never follow Inquirer reviews but decided to give this a try before the flower show. It was awful. Upon entering, I could see it was tiny, cramped, and the floor was dirty. We were seated next to a family that let its kids run all around. None of the food was appetizing from the grape leaves to the pork... More

Their BBQ platter is pretty awesome. It is a MUST when you go to this restaurant. However, their Pho is not as good as other Vietnamese restaurants. They serve their pho in a small bowl, so the soup is not as hot as it should be.

We were in on the coldest day so far this winter so I'm not sure if things were just moving a little slower but there were five restaurant workers milling around and hardly any customers. I had a better meal here previously.

Well worth the time and money. Not overly expensive. Very attentive staff. Food and beverage choices were wide ranging. Our meals were Chicken Pad Thai, Basil Beef, Curried Chicken, and a sweet and sour shrimp, plus Vietnamese meatballs and noodles. Appetizers were Veggie Spring Rolls and won ton soup. All were flavorful, well plated, and nice dipping sauces to accompany.... More
