On 9/30 we had Vietnamese dinner again , 2 nights in a roll)! Even it's a fusion type but I could find the original Vietnamese taste . Overall, the foods were great except the mushroom n vege dish was a bit too salty. Desserts were delicious , the fried coconut ice cream was recommended to try! Nice atmosphere not noisy... More

Went for lunch and had (1) Papaya Salad, (2) Lemongrass Beef lunch special, and (3) Crispy Noodles. Papaya salad came with shrimp and toasted garlic which was very good. Lemongrass Beef over noodles special came with soup and egg rolls. Beef was tasty. The lunch special was in a big bowl with beef over noodles on top of a bed... More

Not every entree is sure to satisfy any curious palate. Been here more than a dozen time and our first few visits were great. A bit pricey and it's not always consistent. Their crab noodles is way too expensive! It was pretty good to say the least but to pay more than $80 is certainly not worth it! I love... More

I wonder why my husband was thinking.that was a good idea to give a try. Wasn't. The lemongrass beef wasn't tasty at all and soup was bland. My husband chicken was tasteless, maybe because he doesn't eat the skin(??!!) and the salad ...was ok. It was expensive because it didn't worth. Sorry But...that's

Came here for lunch with a group of old friends for a reunion get together. Pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and the quiet, uncrowded environment. The garlic noodles with large prawns, lobster with sticky rice and the mango/purple rice/ice cream dessert combination we ordered were all excellent. The quiet environment allows peaceful conversations without trying to shout louder... More

We had reservations, but the servers were unaware . A couple came in after us, but they got seated first. Tables were not cleaned off. It was right after the lunch rush, but it was if they never had a lunch rush before. But.... After that all got settled, the food was delicious. My husband enjoyed his lunch special and... More

Just went to Le Soleil after reading an article on San Francisco Chronicle last month that talked about Hainanese chicken rice. We finally had the chance to try it out. The place was full already at 6:30 pm. The staff was good and attentive. We ordered the chicken rice, which they only serve on Mondays and Fridays. It was yummy.... More

There are countless Vietnamese restaurants in San Francisco. If you are looking for a reasonably priced neighborhood restaurant, Le Soleil fills the bill nicely. While it styles itself as French/Vietnamese, it is classic Vietnamese. The service was excellent. The Imperial Rolls, Spring Rolls, pork and beef were all quite tasty, (There was a bit of gristle in some of the... More

This restaurant serves reasonably priced yet high-quality foods. The dishes are well prepared and tasty. The menu is quite extensive and imaginative. This is the place I will return again and again for VN foods whenever I visit San Francisco.
