Flavorful and friendly Vietnamese spot on downtown St. Pete's hopping Central Avenue. We enjoyed the grilled shrimp salad and the bun ma, a meaty broth-based dish loaded with fresh herbs and vegetables.

Other reviewers who said 'great food but spotty service' hit the mark for our visit. This is not to say they aren't friendly, knowledgeable and offer good opinions. Perhaps they were understaffed? But then come on management, Christmas week is really busy in St Pete,...More

This place is great and really crowded. A downtown st pete hot spot. Vietnamese food at it's finest. Great menu that delivers. Wonderful mix and flavors and ingredients. Not cheap, but a great value.

We discovered this gem quite by accident. The food was reasonable and tasty. Service was fine as well. You can also sit outdoors to enjoy ethnic fusion dining.

Our server was excellent, being very pleasant and informative on menu choices. Unfortunately it all went down hill after that. We started with the La V Rolls and Pork Pillow. The meat in both dishes was chewy, dry, and over cooked. Our main courses were...More

La V is one of our go to restaurants for super tasty and healthy eating. The food is bursting with flavor from the spicy crab udon soup, to the grilled caramelized pork. They have some great options for vegetarians also. The salads are very fresh...More
