Best Authentic Viet food without having to drive to little saigon – I've been here 4 times w/ my boyfriend because I'm vietnamese & he's japanese and we both loveee vietnamese food. Considering the name is Vietnam restaurant, we went in with low expectations, but the food was surprisingly pretty authentic and the prices were very reasonable. Only one time was the food I had mediocre but the every other dish I've had there was delicious & authentic. My boyfriend loves eating here b/c it's good food for a great price. Definitely will be back!
Ghettoo fabulous, some of the best Imperial rolls in the world – Just like I said, this place is ghettoo fabulous. The interior is old and crusty and feels very strange. If you're looking for a Pho Pasteur, posh feel, forget it. However, don't let the nasty surroundings bother you. Beneath the grit you'll find some of the most authentic and flavorful Vietnamese cuisine in town. I highly recommend the huge Imperial rolls (dipped in fish sauce, it's better than it sounds), a deep-fried, massive roll with glass noodles, pork, and spices inside. The shrimp spring rolls are also wonderful here, with thin skins that delicately hold the carefully rolled ingredients inside. The pho, of course, is great as well. I always get the Chin Nam Ve Don or the Tai Chin, which is a traditional beef brisket pho with a mixture of cooked and uncooked meat. Somehow the heat of the soup manages to brown the uncooked slices after it arrives at the table.
The staff here is as weird as the interior, and sometimes hard to understand. They usually get my order right though. Also, they have a very cheap all you can eat, Chinese-style buffet at lunch time. I think it's around $6 so it's a fine deal.
Overall I'd have to say this is one of my favorite places to dine when I'm not feeling pretentious. Parking can be a hassle but there's an empty office building just east of Vietnam which is where I usually end up.
Mama must be in the kitchen! – This place has great food and a wonderful atmosphere. BYOB so bring your fave. Prices are good, too. They also have a great buffet during the week.
Great tofu! – The restaurant is a bit off the beaten path but nothing major. The parking for this place had several very nice cars parked in front. A plain interior with cafeteria-style tables and chairs is what dons the inside of the restaurant. Service was very friendly and meal recommendations were made when we asked. We settled on the chicken/broccoli ($8.50) & tofu/veggies ($7.50) which both came with steamed rice. We requested our meal be prepared spicy. We eat lots of spicy foods and still didn?t find it spicy?so would recommend ordering your meal extra spicy if that is your thing. The food arrived smelling wonderful and looked great. We were pleased with the quality and taste of our food. We didn?t leave feeling overly stuffed. If you are a big eater you may want to order an appetizer in addition to your meal to get that full feeling. Overall, we would recommend the tofu over the chicken as a main meat/protein.
No frills, big taste – We went here on a weekend lunch, late in the afternoon. I agree with the reviewer before that the atmosphere isn't the highlight, although you can get views of downtown out one side of windows. The food was fantastic. Spring rolls make a great starter with that sweet peanut sauce. I noticed all the vegetables were extremely fresh in my beef vermechelli.
Best Vietnamese in Old East Dallas – This from East Dallas Restaurant Guide (url below): Great and fairly large lunch buffet - and it seems to get better and better. Mixed clientele. Noodles, rice plates and other menu items good too. Pho gets the nod. Good, strong coffee. Xuan and her husband do a nice job. Google chaskemp for more reviews
Best Vietnamese in Dallas! – Vietnam Restaurant is a HOLE IN THE WALL. That said, they have some of the best vietnamese food in Dallas. I would recommend the Beef Pho (soup) or my favorite, the pork vermicelli (currently #99 on the menu). The chicken spring rolls are also very good. The food is cheap and the service is average, but the spring rolls and vermicelli dishes keep bringing me back. I LOVE THIS PLACE!
This Vietnamese restaurant personifies cheap, authentic, fantastic food in a low-key setting. – The Scene
Light-blue walls meet linoleum tables and green-vinyl chairs. A fish tank bubbles near the cashier's counter. Asian tchotchkes, touches of faux spruce and small televisions complete the cafeteria vibe.
Chicken spring rolls present well-browned slivers of meat with cold rice noodles, crisp lettuce and mint, all rolled into soft rice paper. The peanut dipping sauce, doused with a bit of chili sauce and dusted with peanuts, is velvety and spicy. The pork crepe also excels; fried portion of cured meat, green onions and egg together into a hot, crispy crepe, then tops it all off with cold bean sprouts, lettuce and herbs. Steam noodles with grilled pork and shrimp combines hot, sticky rice noodles with a wonder of a meat that's both juicy and slightly crispy. The spicy shrimp doesn't disappoint, and the whole deal can be stuffed with lettuce into a moo shoo-like rice paper roll.
