There pho noodle soup is the best. My kids are very picky and that is a dish they can live off of everyday. There fried rice is also good #79 with beef, fried chicken, fried shrimp, teriyaki chicken and beef are amazing. I also recommend the pineapple shake. We go there so much, all the staff knows us and we... More

We were looking forward to Viet-Thai after a good meal at another Vietnamese restaurant in Lowell. Portions are ample: you could drown in the swimming pool-sized bowls of pho they serve. Overall, the food was good, but not the equal of Pho 88. Service the day of our visit was abysmal--getting menus took 1/2-hour (maybe there are only a few... More

After reading many positive reviews we gave Viet Thai a shot. Wife had Pho which came to the table a solid 5 minutes before my Pad Thai. Pho looked good but the broth had a slightly "off" aftertaste, sort of soapy. Pad thai was a letdown, very greasy with same funky off flavor, duck was very tasty but had small... More

I come here once a week with my parents for lunch almost every week. We've been regulars since I was a kid. It is such a great place to eat and relax especially if you are on a lunch break. Food taste like it was made lin Vietnam (or my mom's kitchen!). They have the best noodle soup and their... More

My friends and I been to Viet-Thai three times in the past two months. We happened up this restaurant while walking the streets and reminiscing our times at Lowell High. The buffet items are outstanding, beginning with the soup choices. The spring rolls are home made as I've seen the same rolls at a local Asian market in Lowell for... More

Every time we have a weekday off work, the hubby and I like to head to Viet-Thai for the lunch buffet. The buffet serves great Vietnamese food at a great low cost price. The offerings include appetizers such as wings, eggrolls, fresh rolls, crab rangoon to authentic Vietnamese stews, stir frys and soups. For those that haven't expanded their palate... More

This Vietnamese and Thai restaurant located in downtown Lowell is perfect for a low budget meal. Everything that I have ordered so far has been delicious and I don't have to break the bank to pay for it. It is also perfect for college students who are sick of school food. My favorite dish is #50 but they also have... More

I've tried the stir fries and also the vermicelli with all sorts of add-on bursts of flavor and this is real Vietnamese food -- delicate, not heavy, freshly-cooked and delicious. There's a good selection of Thai dishes on offer in addition to the Vietnamese. Viet-Thai is one of many restaurants that serve the local ethnic community. Its prices are low,... More
