We've eating at the Vietnam several times over the past three years and always found the food and service very good. Wide choice of typical Vietnamese dishes, promptly served in generous portions. We prefer this restaurant to other nearby Chinese and Asian offerings. On the edge of Chinatown & near the Convention Center.

My wife and I found this restaurant mentioned on Trip Advisor and as we were in the neighborhood we tried it for dinner. I had a meatball roll for an appetizer. It was freshly wrapped and contained small meatballs. It was served with a tasty dipping sauce. The appetizer was okay but it was not terribly exciting. I ordered the... More

We've been going to this restaurant for decades and it's still strong. They have healthy, but savory dishes covering all types of diners, so it's also pretty good for vegetarians as well as meat, poultry, and seafood lovers. I brought a friend from out of town and she and her daughter both loved the food here. We enjoyed the shrimp... More

On the recommendation of my niece, a restaurant owner in Philly, my son and I had dinner at Vietnam Restaurant a few weeks ago. We have a couple of local favorites at home in South Florida, but none compare to the excellent meal we had here. This is a restaurant that concentrates on the quality of the food it prepares...

This is definitely our favorite Vietnamese restaurant in Philly. The decor and atmosphere are upscale yet casual. Service is excellent and attentive. There is a full bar offering mixed drinks, beer and wine. The food is exceptional. Their spring rolls are among the best I've ever had. Our favorite entrees are the vermicelli noodle bowls, which are offered with a... More

While attending the fabulous Philly Bike Expo, one of our evening meals was at Vietmam Restaurant in Philladelphia's China Town area. They quickly seated our party of seven in a quiet upstairs dining room. Our server was courteous and attentive. Drinks, appetizers and entrees were all excellent. If you are near the Philly Convention Center, try Vietnam Restaurant on 11th... More

Tried this place with friends on a recommendation. It was awesome. Four of us shared the choices the waiter made for us. Each one was a favorite. Server was great, food was exceptional and not very expendive and we can't wait to go back.

Vietnamese is one of my favorite cuisines and this one was the best. There was a great variety and every dish was perfect. The best part was that it was an easy walk from the city hall area hotels. Our table had several shared dishes and everything was perfectly cooked, seasoned and served. The service was also nice. It is... More

This place is a standard in Chinatown -- always good, inexpensive (though prices have climbed over the years), very fresh ingredients. I think the appetizers, soups and vermicelli bowls are the most interesting and delicious things on the menu (and the papaya salad is a knockout, perfect on a very hot day). The more substantial entrees with rice are good... More
