My husband and I are originally from California where there is a lot of good food. However, since moving up to the Siouxland area, we been very disappointed in the restaurants in the area. So keeping this in mind, we kept our expectations low (despite the good reviews), because after all, it's Vietnamese food in South Dakota. BUT we were... More

The decor of the place is a little sterile but this is not fast food ... you can tell from the time it takes to serve, as well as the taste, that this is fresh food made up when ordered. And man o man is it good! I esp. love the season bowls, like the Summer Bowl (shrimp and pork).... More

We stopped in while driving through the state and the restaurant was welcoming and had a varied menu, including a couple vegetarian options which was helpful. Portions were good for the price and ingredients were quality.

One word: yum!!!! I love their season bowls; my personal favorite is summer bowl. The restaurant is clean, the food is good, the service is speedy, and the price is very reasonable. I just keep going back!

we'd be regulars if we lived within an hour instead of the 800 miles we currently are at. We eat Vietnamese a couple of times a month and have been spoiled with some great restaurants. This was our second visit to Lam's. The first time we got the pho and bahn mi and thought both were very good. This time... More

We had the best oriental food experienced in Sioux Falls. The atmosphere is quite sparse, the service was average, and we would have loved some wine with our dinner, which is not available. We probably wont choose Lam's again for a date night, but a good choice when we have a family night. Again, the soup and the braised beef... More

I love Lam. Everything you've read about lam is true. I've had the flu lately and when the first thing you think of to make you better is lam pork and shrimp soup with the perfect broth heaping with bean sprouts, jalapeño slices and cilantro.... You know it's an institution to your town.

This restaurant may appear simple, but it very well kept and the food is excellent. The menu has a large selection of dishes and soups, so you won't be bored when you return. We were impressed by how quickly our order was taken and how fast the food was delivered.

Thank Kevin H
