We stumbled upon Linh Nam because it just happened to be nearby, and it turned out to be a happy surprise. They serve Chinese and Vietnamese food, and do it all very well. I usually can't resist ordering the diced ribeye with potatoes over rice, one of their house specialties. It's mouthwateringly tender, smoky, and flavorful, and so delicately seasoned with holy basil and I don't what, oyster sauce? It's not a combination of foods or flavors that one might generally consider (potatoes and rice? steak with thai basil?) but together it's a total knockout. The pho is very good, but to my knowledge they only have the rare beef version, so if you want something more exotic, like beef tendon, you might be in the wrong place. It's not a "noodle house." The hot and sour soup is some of the best I've had. The service is friendly and professional and they also serve beer. It's also worth mentioning that chef Frederick Truong was in the 2013 Iron Chef Tucson competition.
