Very good Vietnamese, alittle tight in the dining room but all in all a great lunch. Daughter and i always look for the best places and the most authentic, so right down our alley. Tough parking but worth it. Other things all around so worth coming for a stroll as well as a meal.

I've been to this restaurant two times and enjoyed every single bite. The particular dishes that I had were very fresh and so flavorful. I will definitely be back. They have plenty of seating and the service was great.

Just the right place on a chilly day to sip some hot tea and eat some good food. I enjoyed a combination noodle bowl and had a couple spring rolls on the side. Overall, a pretty good meal for the money - the Trip Advisor sign on the door gave me confidence that we would not be disappointed...and we were... More

This place is ok for vietnamese cuisine. It's not too bad. Tamarind Tree is better. Service is good, fast and nice.

We've been here twice and each time its been great. Really good food, fast service and a great value. Being in the basement of the Labor Temple might put you off but that's part of the surprise.

Without a doubt the best Vietnamese I've had to date. I love this cuisine and search out new opportunities to eat in any city I travel to, and Seattle's Green Leaf wins, hands down. The vermicelli with grilled beef wrapped in betel leaves is pretty mind blowing. All the dishes - even a simple chicken fried rice (no grease -... More

At first impression, I wasn't sure about eatting here but after trying their green papaya salad, chef's special clam with garlic and basil and shrimp crepe this is going to be my favorite stop when I crave Vietnamese food. We cleaned our dishes with a bowl of rice it was that good. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Banh Xeo is the exceptional appetizer I cannot pass up, but their other dishes have never disappointed me or friends for the past 7 years, and we have tried maybe 15 different items. Always fast service and fresh ingredients. When solo or with friends in the International District on the way to Dim Sum, we have to stop here first... More

I picked up a taste for Vietnamese food while working in Tampa of all places. This place is very good with a lot of spices and flavors. I ordered cahn chu ca which is a "sour" soup with catfish, pinapple, tomato and some other veggies I can't identify. It was overall very good. Looking forward to trying the pho the... More
