The menu in the Vietnam Restaurant has a good selection of the best Vietnamese foods. The cooking is very accurate (I have been to the country of Vietnam several times, and this Corpus Christi restaurant is "SPOT ON". The roasted chicken I had was delicious. It was in a chicken stock, butter and garlic sauce. The skin....OMG....the skin was crispy... More

The only Vietnamese food I've ever eaten was pho. This restaurant didn't have pho on the menu, so it was a chance to taste some traditional Vietnamese dishes I've never tried before. This is an upscale restaurant, and the food was delicious. I had the seafood hot pot, and it was full of seafood, delivered very hot and fresh.

Can't figure this place out. The outside looks horrible - like it's an old gambling hall or something. Inside, it looks pristine with waiters wearing black uniforms and crisp linens and beautiful lighting, etc. We experienced pretty poor service despite having been in on the early side around 7pm. I didn't get the impression that our waiter was working a... More

I am gluten free so I ordered the seafood pot. Slow oven cooked seafood was delicious! Excellent atmosphere. A little pricey but worth it! Secret small hotel upstairs!

This gem serves terrific food at very reasonable prices. The service has always been great. There are too many great dishes to just list one.

I read the reviews prior to going last night and should have heeded the many warnings. This is a lovely restaurant located in the downtown hotel district near the waterfront. The decor is lovely and inviting. The wine list was robust but I found they were out of several of my picks. Was really disappointed to be offered an old,... More

If you prefer Thai food or you are being a bit more mindful of your budget, head down the street 2 blocks to Thai Spice (see my other review). You will love it. However, if you don't mind spending a bit more on your lunch or dinner, Vietnam is hands down the best Asian food of any variety in town.... More

This place totally surprised me! Not being a big fan of Asian fare in general, especially in Corpus, I reluctantly agreed to go. Service was excellent as was the food. Since there were 5 of us, we had one (or more lol) of every appetizer. The fried broccoli was EXCELLENT. We each ordered different dishes and shared..my favorite was the... More

I enjoyed my dinner at Vietnam Restaurant, but found it to be pretty pricey for the meal I received. Everything was cooked as it should be, but for portion size and selection, I felt that the prices were on the high side because of the name, not the quality. I would go back, but it wouldn't be my overall first... More
