I am so glad we finally tried this place, I saw it all the time but never stopped in. We had a delicious dinner and especially liked the lemongrass chicken. We were with two small kids and the waitress was wonderful with them as well. We will definitely be back and I highly recommend it.

This small, family-run restaurant is hidden behind a corner strip mall, on the SW side of the intersection. Once you've discovered it, return visits are definitely necessary. Dao Tien contends for best in St Louis, despite the longevity of some other Vietnamese restaurants. It's small and clean, not a huge beerhall seating.

The lunch menu is an excellent value and allows economic sampling of more traditional Vietnamese dishes. Ordering off the menu, for lunch or dinner, opens more doors. The pho beef broth is exemplary; any soup you choose will be excellent.

Since several pho additions are served on the side, the wait staff - not all family, but all enthusiastic and knowledgeable - will help you figure out just how to proceed. I find it's best to go slow until you know how much of an ingredient you really want. Not liking fire? No problem, there's so much choice you'll return again and again.

My wife and I went to Dao Tien looking for good Pho. We spent a month in Vietnam last year and nothing we have been able to find in the US is nearly as good. Well, Dao Tien finally gave us what we were looking for! My wife got her Pho with beef and I got mine with beef and meatballs. Both were delicious! They also gave us extra noodles free of charge!

We then met Diana (the owner) and Matt who were very friendly, and we had a very nice conversation about Vietnam. Our server was also very friendly, good, and professional.

Can't wait to go back to Dao Tien for some real Pho. Highly recommended!!
