We went here for happy hour because they were supposed to have the best options and more than just a couple like most places. We got there and we had to wait in line. You order and then you sit down. They have a $2, $3 $4 menu items and the $2 are oh so good. We ordered about 6... More

We usually arrive in Portland late evening and Luc Lac is always our first stop. Great variety of Vietnamese bits, bites, bowls, or dinners. We always order lots to share around the table. Don't be surprised if you have wait in line----good idea to visit their website to see the seating guidelines ahead of time. Tasty, spicy flavor combinations! Three... More

We went there for dinner and there was a long queue before us. We had to wait our turn. When it finally came, we had to go the the cash counter, order our food, pay for it and then wait to be seated by the staff. The food was really very good and delicious. Had ordered a bowl of Tom... More

I have been to Vietnam and had amazing food there. But this place was a real eye opener in terms of quality, vibe and value. I have to tell you a really wish this restaurant was in Seattle as it is so good, yet such a good value. My daughter told me about this place and we went there for... More

First evening in PDX. Did lots of research before hand, reviews do not disappoint. We went in for happy hour. Be prepared for a wait but totally worth it. You order before you sit which is unique but we loved it because the food came out almost immediately. We ordered almost everything on the $2 small plates. The crispy roll... More

This was my first time having Vietnamese food, and it was delicious. I had a bowl of pho with two kinds of beef and meatballs. It was so good that I decided to return the next night for another bowl. The prices were very reasonable, and the food was worth the wait. I will definitely eat there again on my... More

Walking back to hotel during Snowstorm in the city. Found this joint serving steaming bowl of pho with lots of beef brisket - broth so delicious. Paired with banhmi pirk sandwich. Lifted my spirit and kept me warm on my walk back to hotel. Ate half and bagged other half for midnight snack.
