Whenever I take someone to the airport, or whenever I go to Nell Hill's I always stop at Hein Vuong restaurant in the City Market. I feel like I am in good hands the minute I enter the door, no matter if I am alone or with others. I always order the same dish... #23 Bun and I am completely... More

This restaurant is located in a garage door clad bay in the City Market. Despite its humble dwelling, this place serves food fit for the gods! Everything I have ever had in the 20+ years eating here, has been delicious 100% of the time. Best ingredients=best food! Always fresh. Best cuts of meats. Tasty seafood. Perfect tempura. THE BEST fish... More

We went with four adults and two children and ordered an assortment off of their very expansive menu. Everyone was 100% satisfied, even the vegetarian in the group and me - the hard to please one. The restaurant is small, but we didn't have any problem at dinner time on a Saturday night. I was also very pleased with the... More

Went to City Market and found this small restaurant. The Pho Tai Nam was excellent very tasty. The service is slow because there was only one lady doing everything but when you ordered it was very quick to come out. I give it a 5 anyway because the food was so good!

We always try to find a new and interesting place to dine during our Sunday trips. We chose this one as it is right in the City market which we frequent on regular basis and since my wife is Vietnamese, this seemed as an obvious choice. My wife being a native Vietnamese have noticed that the menu offerings are from... More

I just relocated back to KC and came here for lunch with my mom, something we've been doing since I was a kid so there's probably one extra point just for old time's sake. We ordered the same thing we do everything - #3 Banh Tom,#14 seafood soup with vermicelli and #21 seafood soup with egg noodles. Everything was still... More

Not sure what others are raving about but the Pho tasted just ok. It had not much or no beef flavor at all which is how the broth should be prepared. The egg-rolls were just plain ... well, plain. Trying once is enough, won't be going there again.

Made a return trip after too long away. All the character, cleanliness, quality and tasty food I have always enjoyed is just as good as on all of the last numerous visits. Small though it may be, Hien Vuong puts out great food with friendly service and very reasonable prices. Better than Chinese and Thai food the Vietnamese kitchen is... More
