“The most authentic of a small lot”

Song Long Restaurant
Ranked #213 of 2,013 Restaurants in Cincinnati
Price range: $0 - $8
Cuisines: Chinese, Vietnamese
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 4, 2009

In 2007, we moved to Cincinnati from the Gulf Coast, which generally has one of the larger Vietnamese populations in the U.S. and, correspondingly, a large number of Vietnamese restaurants, especially in Houston and New Orleans.

Vietnam offers one of the world's great cuisines. Unforunately, it is poorly represented in Cincinnati. As far as I know, Song Long is one of the few places in the entire metro area to serve authentic Vietnamese food. The restaurant does an adequate but not great job with its food, but mostly serves to satisfy a craving we developed down South.

Anyone who has even a moderate interest in a variety of Asian food owes it to himself to try a bowl of pho, or Vietnamese beef noodle soup, if he hasn't done so already. Song Long's is not the best I've ever had, but it's probably the best example available around here. (The restaurant Cilantro, near UC's campus, does a good job with it as well, although in a very stripped-down, collegiate environment.)

Unique food from a place that's been around over 20 years.
