Our family was actually going to try another Vietnamese restaurant, but found out it was closed for the holidays, so we decided to go here instead. It was a nice surprise. Space is fairly modern, and clean. We had: - Beef Meatball Pho - Good for the kids. Big enought to feed two small children, and some of the largest... More

Not much to the outside of this place but don't be fooled. Elegant atmosphere inside. Adequate lighting, nice tables and a fire pit. Food was perfect. Great flavors, I don't think they have anything bad on the menu. Prices are median. We got the prawn fried rice and mushrooms and halibut. Everything was absolutely delicious. No complaints. Portions look small... More

Delicious upscale Vietnamese that is ALWAYS extremely fresh and tasty! As vegetarians we have a lot to choose from. Every dish we have over delivers!

If you tire of Seattle's food trucks and copious burger joints (how many can you really have?) then this is the place to branch out for some really fantastic Vietnamese food. I often get the Phò (there are many variations offfered) but I love how you can get many dishes "dry style" with the broth on the side. The crepe... More

We have dined here numerous times. The last time was about three months ago and we were surprised that it had gone down hill. Not so clean, an extension cord across the floor and the food a bit off. So we were reluctant to go back but we did and happy, happy. It was cleaned up, no electric cords and... More

This is an incredible menu. A ton of diverse dishes and it is really hard to choose. If you love beef, get their 7 courses of beef to share with someone. Really delicious. I don't love their Pho, but everything else has been more than incredible. We took a party of 10 here this past summer from all over the... More

The food here was so good the first time, that I went back two days later. I had the best soup of my life: full of flavor with lemongrass sausage, rice, cilantro, green onion and a broth that was divine -- not overwhelmingly chicken or another dominant flavor. It was a generous portion and despite the fact that I was... More

Really Incredibly Diverse Menu - there were pages of dishes to select from with influences from Chinese and Indian food and spices. Very appropriate for all types of occasions. The outside seating looked beautiful even though it was in the middle of a parking lot! Hard to imagine but it was set off and well done. I ate inside where... More

Many varieties of Vietnamese entrees offered. Daily specials offer excellent value. Located off-street frontage in mini-mall. Highly recommended.

I don't know much about Vietnamese food but was assured this place was very legit. What I DO know is the food was delicious and so beautifully prepared and presented you almost hated to eat it! (Almost.) We had the Tamarind Tree rolls, the Green Mango Salad, and the Tamarind Tree Crepe. WONDERFUL.
