If you do not know where to go or are not knowledgeable about SE Asian foods, this is a good place. But there is a reason why will not find too many Asians eating there.

This is one of my favorite restaurants ever!! I have been there for romantic dinners, great evenings with another couple, meeting up with a friend to check-in, and sitting in the bar for drinks and horse de orves. I have also been there for a group event in the evening. Everything is delivered with friendly service and great flavors! Of... More

I visited this restaurant 30 years ago when it was located below Pike Place Market. Every time I return there is something amazing on the menu and the service is always first rate. I look forward dining here again and again and again

The dumplings were good and the green curry was great. If you want carryout, make sure you ask for utensils ot you will be eating with your fingers. Go for it!

I have eaten here now and then from their early days. Fame's result brings crowds, but the quality has not suffered. Tasty food, tastefully presented never disappoints, and old and young in search of fine "pan Viet +" should enjoy this fine Seattle spot.

I was more impressed with Wild Ginger years ago when I first dine there, but it's still excellent food, great service and fun atmosphere. Perhaps the cuisine was more exotic and new to me back then, and since then such fare is more common. I remember the first time I had the duck buns. Wow. Recently, though the duck seemed... More

OK menu, nice ambience, friendly staff... but I went here to eat good, which I wasn't satisfied with. They do not customize food, the vegetarian meals especially. In spite of being told that I am allergic to garlic, they could n't make salad without garlic! I mean I make salads every now and then, and they taste great ,and I... More

I heard a lot about this restaurant and was able to try it out before heading to the symphony near by. The one and only issue we had reoccurred throughout our meal: we rarely saw our server. The food and drinks were great once we got them, but we waited for about thirty minute before they had even taken our... More

Perhap's it's unfair for a local, who's known a restaurant since it's beginnings and watched it suceed and be discovered for all the reasons I'd want to keep it a secret. Don't get me wrong it is not tarnished nor is it anything less than "really really good" - but somehow it just doesn't seem as exceptional as it was... More
