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

My husband and I finally got around to dining at Vietnam Restaurant - something that had been on our "to do" list for a while. While the food was very good and the service and atmosphere excellent, we were a bit disappointed at the menu. We have both been to Vietnam a number of times and were hoping for something... More

This si a local favorite lunchspot in downtown Corpus Christi. The food is always subperb, with many different wonderful flavors. My favorite dishes are the roasted chicken and the napoleaon beef. You won't find these anywhere as better than these.

I had the seafood curry and it was amazing. Literally one of the best curries I've ever had. My son had the Kung Pao chicken and we split an order of shrimp spring rolls. Everything was delicious.

We had dinner at this fabulous restaurant Wednesday evening before the TRAIN concert. The four of us ordered something different and we all sampled each others food which included tuna, sea bass, soft shell crab and chicken. All of the food was fantastic and presented beautifully. And, our waiter, Eric, was so pleasant and knowledgable of the menu and dinner... More

This is a great place for lunch or very nice dinner. The duck is very good along with the crispy chicken. My favorite is Napoleon beef!! Fried broccoli/calamari is super. You just can't go wrong.

Outstanding food. Beautiful setting. I was so surprised at this eatery and had passed it for years before stopping in to give it a chance. It was great Asian fare but they also have some wonderful french and even mexican inspired dishes that just leave you drooling. The owners are the chefs and the wait staff take care of you... More
