Lam's is our go-to Pho location in Sioux Falls. The wait staff is attentive and polite and the Pho is Phonominal! Our kids even enjoyed the experience. Clean, family friendly atmosphere with lovely art on the walls. Try the Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk....so good!

We tried Lam's for the first time last year with some friends. It is in a bit of an odd location and there isn't a lot of parking in front, but don't let that stop you from trying this place. The inside has been extremely clean every time we've gone, it's nice and bright, and the service is always great.... More

I honestly think this place has the best Vietnamese food in Sioux Falls, especially if you want something besides pho. There are other places that offer comparable pho, but for entree dishes, this is the place to go. The spicy chicken is awesome. My only complaint is that it's always very different. Quality control is lacking a bit. True pluses:... More

We were looking for a restaurant that was open on a Sunday night and also served vegetarian food. This was the only place so we gave it a try. Our expectations were high based on reading previous reviews. The entrees we had were good (Ginger Chicken & Fried Tofu) but the appetizers were a bit lacking. The veggie egg rolls... More

We had dinner here as a family and were surprised how busy the restaurant was on a Saturday evening considering it is a little out of the way in an industrial area of town. The choices from Vietnamese sandwiches to Pho to other chicken and seafood dishes was great. Service was reasonably fast considering how busy they were and the... More

My wife and I took the kids to the 4th of July parade here in Sioux Falls. We have only lived in South Dakota a short time and this had to be the worst parade I have ever watch..who cares though the kids had fun. One of the floats that seemed to stand out and represent what America was all... More

My wife and I came at about 4pm, had dinner, and came again at 8pm. We tried classic and spicy pho at the first time, which both reached the standard. The second time I tried "the summer bowl". The combination of raw veggies and fried pork hit my mark.

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
