Good Eats!

This restaurant is well-known and has been given a number of awards over the years. The food is excellent, particularly chicken dishes and pho. The service is quick and attentive.

We went here recently for the first time on a Sunday afternoon for lunch and were pleased with our selections -- spring rolls; grilled chicken and vermicelli; and soup with noodles and tofu. All the dishes had plenty of fresh ingredients and were tasty. I especially liked the tender, flavorful chicken. But we disliked the decor and service. The long,... More

We normally go to the Green Leaf in Belltown, took our daughter to lunch here and we were impressed. Fresh, fast, nice portions and really good.

Came here with a friend on his recommendation. Very good service, a nice selection of meals to choose from, and everything tasted great. Prices were fair. Wine list is lacking anything really substantial. You can choose "merlot" or "chardonnay", so definitely wouldn't make this a wine recommended location to dine in the city. Otherwise, a great spot and worth a... More

This is one of the venerable and classic Seattle Vietnamese places. I've been there quite a number of times and always wonder why I don't go more often. I think it is because they are busy so there may be a wait and the seating is tight so it is a bit clostraphobic. The food is so good and they... More

This is one of the best Asian restaurants in Seattle. It's fusion between French and Vietnamese is quite authentic and delicious. See if you can get seated upstairs. The wait staff has been the same for years here and I love how attentive they are without being overly obtrusive.

In the International District (good luck parking; we took an Uber), this Vietnamese hole in the wall joint has the best. food. ever. I would have taken photos but we gobbled it up as soon as the plates landed on the table. Well-prepared, well-presented -- this was the least expensive and best meal we had on a week-long stay in...

Went to Green Leaf on a recommendation from a friend. Located in the International District so it can be a bit tricky to find parking but the food was good and the prices were reasonable. I ordered Pho and it was tasty. Would recommend if you are in the area and craving Vietnamese.

This is one of those International District places that makes you feel adventurous eating somewhere exotic no one knows about.....maybe. The Green Leaf has been around for years and was considered by many to be one of the best. Well, it has lost it's charm. The decor is exactly the same as always making the place seem dirty. The servers... More
