The Pho Soup has a pretty Consistent Taste! Crab Rangoon was delicious: Spring Rolls tasted very Authentic: Customer Service needs improvement: Orders had to be repeated and returned! Very Economical: Not far from Kansas City Skyline and Kansas City World Renown City Market: Come Hungry!

We stopped in on a weekday evening. Place was packed as usual but they git us in when they could. Food was good and their peanut sauce tasted great. Spring rolls were a little bland this time. Pho and fried rice were up to par as always. Always worth a stop when in KC.

I love spring rolls, but they slip a little piece of meat (pork?) into the side and it just tasted terrible. Perhaps it is more authentic with shrimp and pork? But not so good. I enjoyed it better after I took out the meat, but it wasn't the freshest or best I have had. The peanut sauce was good, but... More

When we moved to Kansas City, I was afraid we wouldn't find a place for pho and I would have to cook it all the time. Luckily, we found Vietnam Cafe on Campbell street. It's a small place and often jam packed. The rice dishes and vermicelli dishes are great! Fresh ingredients. If you want chili paste to add to... More

A busy, delicious, always crowded cafe selling excellent, rich, and unforgettable Pho, Vietnamese soup noodle! A bowl of pho, an order of spring rolls or a plate of fried shrimps, and finish with a cup of Vietnamese coffee. Oh man, it's so simple and so good. I avoid coming during the regular meal time, so I can get a seat... More

You'll most likely have to stand outside while waiting for a table. Take this opportunity to review the extensive menu. If you're not familiar with Vietnamese food, go with someone who is, that way you'll order something that you like and you won't be disappointed. I went there with my DIL and granddaughter, from now on, every trip to KC... More

This is a little cafe in the river market area of Kansas City that I have gone to for a while now, and I think it is a wonderful little place to enjoy good food with friends and family. The curry chicken is my favorite but I have not been disappointed with anything that I have ordered there. It is... More

The area around the restaurant seemed a little run down but it turned out to be a great cafe. The staff was very friendly and helped us pick the best foods to try. The portions were good for the price. Overall, this is a good cafe to visit.

Enjoyed the crispy rice pancake and the banana flavored Grass Jelly Drink. The staff are attentive. The take away order was prepared in a timely manor. The building is somewhat dated but welcoming enough.

Every time I go here, the Pho is what I get. I also love their Vietnamese coffee and the spring rolls with peanut sauce. I've tried the curry chicken, it was good, but I am obsessed with the pho. It is nice to have as leftovers, especially if you have extra veggies to add later. Service is ok, nothing to... More
