I have been going to this restaurant in the International District for a couple of years and my favorite menu item is the bun dac biet which is a special combo of grilled chicken shrimp pork and egg rolls served over vermicelli and a special sauce.

I love this place. It is definitely not elegant, and the chairs upstairs are very uncomfortable. The food is great. I especially like the mango salad with chicken, the shrimp pancake, and the sea bass.

Recommended by the ladies at the Wing Luke Museum across the street (worth a visit as well ). Lovely salad with lotus leaves(?) green papayas and bamboos shoots + shrimps . Well presented and very good . Refreshing and the service is excellent .a nice little place in a forlorn area .

Excellent food and great prices. Bustling and crowded place in the ID but well worth the visit. The food is really very good.

I am someone who is not very familiar with Vietnamese food. My son ordered for me. The service was great and the food was fresh, attractive and delicious. I would definitely go here again on my next visit to Seattle.

My wife and I just had lunch at Green Leaf Restaurant in the International District of Seattle. This was not our first visit. I had a vermicelli noodle dish with wok fried beef, onions and bean sprouts. I loved it. Fresh vegetables, and great noodles. My wife had the duck with noodles and vegetables in a delicious broth. Service was... More

Traveled to Seattle with Green Leaf as a destination… not a disappointment; fresh, good and such a variety.

We were disappointed with the not so authentic food. How in the world they scored a Zagat's 2014 rating?! The Special Pho was so so and lacked the flavor. The egg rolls were aweful, no other way to put it. The food display were nice and artful and the service was very good for a Vietnamese restaurant. Parking was not... More

I had heard a lot about this place and only reason dragged my feet due to the location downtown and the parking issues.But there are always options however cost effective they may not be. Easily accessible location but not very prominently displayed.It is only appropriate that most of the visitors to this place come on a recommendation. Once inside a... More

I have been this place write a few times now, so though it was high time I wrote a review. Their food is amazing and if you are a non-vegetarian like me, you are in for a real treat! Try their beef wrapped in beetle leaf, very tasty. Potions are good and service is attentive. Have always had a good... More
