Location and contact

Vinapho is the only Vietnamese restaurant in Bolivia and the food it offers is 100% Vietnamese. It is absolutely not any type of fusion and it is cooked with Vietnamese ingredients like Amomum Tsaoko and star anise. The menu consists of sauteed or fried noodles with veggies, a variety of meats or tofu, and our delicious Pho soup. We also offer a lunch menu for Bs35 from 12:00 to 14:30 and consists of a soup, spring roll (pork and shrimp), sauteed noodles with meat and veggies, cup of ice cream and a glass of natural juice.

Tasty and well-priced Vietnamese food. We loved the fried spring rolls and spicy chicken with sautéed vegetables. I would definitely recommend!

The Pho (tofu) and the Pad Thai were very good. The staff is friendly and were kind to pack all our plates to go, since we were going to have dinner at our hotel. Highly recommended if you're staying in the area.

Easily our favourite restaurant in La Paz and possibly the best value for money we’ve seen in South America after six months of travelling. The food is delicate, flavourful and beautifully cooked, and the spring rolls are a must - four each, surely... All-in dining...More
