Superior spring rolls, delicious grilled quail, and oustanding duck hot pot. Call ahead for Vietnamese specialties, including duck, goat, and seafood hot pot. -- Mark Jones (12/08)
Don't let the name fool you, but don't let it deter you, either. This family-owned Vietnamese shop serves excellent Indochine fare. The pate sandwich and banh mi are perfect for lunch. -- Mark Jones (03/09)
This location has been the incubator for several other local Vietnamese restaurants. Try roasted meatballs, the #8 Pho with wonton dumplings, shrimp, pork and more, and indulge your adventurous side with frogs' legs in lemon grass with garlic and chili.
Great Vietnamese food at a good price with many seafood dishes as well as 5 noodle soups known as pho.
Raspberry would be good. So would lime, creamy vanilla, orange sherbet, blueberry, even a dark and tarry licorice - but not chocolate or caramel. No, I'm not talking ice cream flavors. This is a list of the colors that you might consider wearing when you visit Saigon Express. The restaurant's interior is the most amazingly intense light blue I have ever encountered in a restaurant, and since there is nothing on the walls to compete, you are it. So don't clash. (To the woman with the raspberry blouse - who prevailed on the congenial owner to allow her to come back and pay later - you're the inspiration for all this.)- Ron Bechtol

; A strip mall restaurant on Huebner that acts like a strip mall restaurant on Huebner. This five year old establishment still needs some practice. Be warned that their dishes often miss the mark, but if you’re jonesin’ for asian cuisine and happen to be nearby it’s full of cheap offerings. You can always sneak in a bottle of Sirarcha to quell the pain.

Thong's Thai walks the Tiki-Bar-kitsch line with elan, making it a funky yet sophisticated place for a sake date.
The Skinny Careful selection will yield dependable cuisine at this SA Broadway staple. Don’t miss the special lotus-root salad, and marvel at the fine wine selection.
While whisking trays of Vietnamese crepes, steaming rice, and iced tea to a dining room full of lunchers, my waitress talks like another food fan: "Isn't that wonderful? I love it," or "It's nice to see somebody enjoying his lunch, taking his time." One of the nice things about Viet-Nam's menu is the English pronunciations included for most entrees, which means you can order phó (faw), the beef noodle soup, instead of "foe." Everything is numbered, so the less-adventurous can order a "55" and avoid stumbling over "ech x·o lan" (frog legs). While Viet-Nam's phó (No. 59, $5.50) is rich and more than a meal, this lunch my condiment tray was skimpy and limited experimentation. Viet-Nam's oil content, in most of the dishes I tried at least, is a little high, but in a town where chicken fried steak outpaces chicken Caesars, the amount is acceptable.;- John Brewer
Elegant and cozy, Vietnam is the perfect place to take a date. Beyond the atmosphere is the food which is very good and while filling, not heavy and quite healthy. There are soy drinks available and crab asparagus soup for $1.50.
