I've been many, many times over the years. After trying almost everything on the menu, I'd like to say ,"Great job!" The atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired, however, the food and service are smashing. My best friend even had her upscale rehearsal dinner catered by them.

I like this place. I really like their spring rolls. And I have tried many different dishes but I think my favorites are the almond chicken and the cashew chicken. Lots of veggies. Big Bang for the buck!

DaKao has amazing Pho! If you don't care for tripe or the Vietnamese meatballs, go with #7. The #17 Porkchop w/rice is great if you have a picky eater.

Underrated! Great food. Except for the bahn mi sandwich which kind of sucked. Everything else is awesome! Just don't mind the poor service. He's an old Vietnamese guy living in America, what do you expect?

Da Kao is the best! If you don't think you can eat from a different culture I would challenge you to go to Da Kao, order the chicken noodle soup (I think it is #9) and some shrimp, an order of fresh spring rolls, and a lemonade and you will be hooked. The chinese is even good here but why... More

The waitress acted as if she'd rather be just about anywhere else. The food was not up to usual standards.

This has been my go-to Vietnamese restaurant for years. I grew up eating Vietnamese food at my best friends house my entire childhood. But, lately, whoa! It is 50/50, whether you get good food or not. I have hoped that this was not a trend, but over the last year, the poor quality has remained. Tonight I ordered the Pho,... More

This is my favorite Vietnamese Restaurant in town, but it is the only Vietnamese Restaurant in the whole Sioux City area, but I am glad it is pretty decent food but service could be somewhat better, depending on whom you get for waiter. The female waitresses are fine but if you get a male, he can be short and curt... More

Nice that they have Chinese and Vietnamese food choices. Have had both. The pho is good. Also shrimp fried rice is popular with my teens. If late on Friday or Saturday might find yourself giving away left overs to hungry souls in neighborhood if so inclined.

This is not a fancy high class dining experience, but the service is fast and the food is very good. If you have never eaten Pho, a hearty Vietnamese soup, give it a try. It is a complete meal and once you have tried it, you will be addicted to it.
