Very tasty Vietnamese food, some of the best I've had. Our family of four had two vermicelli dishes (pork and grilled squid), pho (brisket), and a chicken lemongrass soup. All delicious. We had two alcoholic drinks and two non-alcoholic which were all good. Service was prompt, efficient without being intrusive. It's a nice old building redone in a conservative update.

Husband and I were in Philly on an unseasonably warm Fall day, and decided to visit Vietnam. We had not been there in a few years, but craved Vietnamese food. It was mid afternoon, only a few tables were filled. Nice and quiet, so we could hold a conversation.We ordered the nem nuong (meatballs which you wrap in the rice... More

We have dined at this Chinatown restaurant on numerous occasions and have found the food and service consistently good. We have tried the “hot pot’s” as well as the beef and seafood entrées and have enjoyed them all. During our last visit we had the grilled calamari appetizer, the calamari was very tender the lettuce and tomatoes that were served... More

If you are looking for good vietnamese food start hear. Best fresh or crispy spring rolls served with lettuce carrots, pickled radish, mint and fish sauce. My favorite are the crispy vegetable and fresh spring rolls served with peanut sauce. The soups are all delicious and could feed an army or hungry college student. My sons favorite is the seafood...

We've eating at the Vietnam several times over the past three years and always found the food and service very good. Wide choice of typical Vietnamese dishes, promptly served in generous portions. We prefer this restaurant to other nearby Chinese and Asian offerings. On the edge of Chinatown & near the Convention Center.

My wife and I found this restaurant mentioned on Trip Advisor and as we were in the neighborhood we tried it for dinner. I had a meatball roll for an appetizer. It was freshly wrapped and contained small meatballs. It was served with a tasty dipping sauce. The appetizer was okay but it was not terribly exciting. I ordered the... More

We've been going to this restaurant for decades and it's still strong. They have healthy, but savory dishes covering all types of diners, so it's also pretty good for vegetarians as well as meat, poultry, and seafood lovers. I brought a friend from out of town and she and her daughter both loved the food here. We enjoyed the shrimp... More

On the recommendation of my niece, a restaurant owner in Philly, my son and I had dinner at Vietnam Restaurant a few weeks ago. We have a couple of local favorites at home in South Florida, but none compare to the excellent meal we had here. This is a restaurant that concentrates on the quality of the food it prepares...
