“The decor is nice with lovely paintings, except we really did not like the bench seating with no back support.”
“had a large group family style dinner tasting authentic delicious dishes like the mien ga, lotus salad, pillow dumplings, roasted duck, tamarind snapper, and housemade desserts.”
“The appetizers (crispy spring rolls, Ha Noi pillow dumplings) were pretty good, but the entrees were outstanding (Bo Nuong, and pan seared red snapper with crispy tofu, cilantro, fresh tomato, basil, lime sauce I could drink the sauce!)”
“went here with a bunch of friends and the food was amazing!”
“Not only was the service very attentive, but we were certainly not disappointed with the great menu and food presentation.”
“My family and I were visiting New York and this was by far the favorite restaurant in which we ate at!”
“The service was poor at best.”
“You can get good food somewhere else at half the price and taste 100 times better.”
Great food, a little pricey. We got Chef's special wrap (roll) for appetizers, it was 3 or 4 different kinds of wraps and they were all delicious especially with the dipping sauce that came with it. One dish I particularly liked was flank steak sauteed with vegetable. I don't think I ever had such a tender flank steak before, nor would I ever expect flank steak to be tender. I felt bad for my friend as it was his dish. They were also nice enough to tell us what we got for appetizer were quite filling and 3 entrees for 4 people would be perfect.
Great food, good service, nice place. Really liked this little restaurant in Tribeca. The service was very good, FAST! The food was delicious. I had the Chili Shrimp and it was cooked perfectly, so tender, not too spicy, really, really good. Quaint ambience. Definitely recommend it!
Good food,. This place has good fresh food, excellent service, a little pricey, but still well worth going back again and again!
Best place in the city for Vietnamese!. This is my first review of any restaurant ever, but I wanted to address the people in past posts that say that this restaurant is not authentic Vietnamese, I want to know what their comparison is and if they even know what real Vietnamese is. As a native Vietnamese living in this city, there hasn't been one good and real Vietnamese restaurant in New York besides what I find in Chinatown, which also cannot be considered authentic and most of them are not good either. If anyone wants completely authentic food, go to Vietnam. I come here for the great food, real or not and the friendly service I get every time. The price may not be comparable to Chinatown, but it's Tribeca and for that kind of neighborhood, I would expect to pay the high prices. This restaurant is a definite must for me!
non authentic food. The food is overpriced and not authentic. You can get good food somewhere else at half the price and taste 100 times better. Service was good.
Great food and ambience!. I went to Viet Cafe with a group of friends and had an awesome time. The food was authentic and creative (banh mi was awesome, great duck and noodles) and the cocktails were yummy. I loved that the space was big and that I didn't have to strain to hear my friends. The decor was nice too. I'm definitely going back!
great vietnamese cuisine!!. had a great time with friends the other nite, food was great and wonderful selection of wine. the place is casual yet elegant and classy. One of the few vietnamese places in nyc with authentic flavors and it's in the trendy Tribeca neighborhood -- unlike the fast, dirty and smelly places in chinatown
Great service. I use to eat hear all the time when i worked on Pine street near ground zero. Great food and service
Great value, great food, beautiful place. They have 10 entrees for $10 or under so despit the other reviews you don't have to spend a lot..The seared beef with Jasmine rice was DELICIOUS!! The place is beautiful with a nice open kitchen... Arrive early as I hear it gets crowded.. Worth the trip!
Overpriced, Underflavored, Underportioned - Good Ambience. I'm absolutely shocked at the high ratings this place gets - the only redeeming quality (and what you are essentially paying for) is the ambience. Food was way overpriced, underportioned, and underflavored - this is just compounded by the fact that the best Vietnamese I've had has always been dirt cheap, and seems to stay true in NYC - best ones I've been to are in Chinatown, where it's dirt cheap.
