Re: “Dua Vietnamese Noodle Soup

Authentic Asian food with an Atlanta-flare. Downtown location is great! Midtown needs something like this.

Re: “Spice Market

Kriver it's too bad you had a bad experience at Spice Market. I've never eaten lunch there but have eaten dinner several times and found the experience to be quite nice. I will say it is a bit pricy for what you get but I guess that's to be expected at the W. At least everybody who worked there was nice to me, which is more than I can say about the snobby scene outside the door.

Re: “TRE Vietnamese Dining

unfortunately this restaurant is now closed. Ate there once and it was "OK" but didn't get a chance to go back.

Re: “Viet Tofu

Great bahn-mi. And the warm tofu custard with ginger syrup is amazingly good. And it's all at a great price.
Take out only.

Re: “Chateau de Saigon

The portions are ginormous! Best part is the left-overs make for one tasty lunch at work!

Re: “Nam

Seriously fantastic. The rice flour tamales are fresh, salty, flavorful; the pho aromatic; the plates complex and satisfying. Great service. You'll be a fan after the first taste.

Re: “So Ba

But it's no Dai Loi. Rolls are pretty tame, as is the pho. Bun Bo Hue can be ordered sans pig's blood, as I am sure you are aware, being a diligent consumer of this cuisine. Comparing it to Nam, which is a totally different style of restaurant is a bit disingenuous as well. Not being Vietnamese, obviously, who am I to say what is and isn't authentic, and I really don't care. Food is good, not great, service is the same. Beats driving to Forest Park. Hope they do well.

Re: “Spice Market

Went here for lunch with a bunch of people from work for a colleague's birthday today. Despite being the only customers at the place, our lunch arrived an hour after we ordered it (the menu calls out business lunches as available no later than 20 minutes, not sure what THAT is all about...). This was after my colleague went and chased down the wait staff and clarified that we weren't fillers at the place. The fact that everything was cold clearly indicated that the wait staff were extremely busy serving nobody. This, after I had to suffer a withering look from the same wait staff when I said I was going to share a bento box with my friend...so sue me if i don't gorge myself. AND, to cap it off, I found a hair in my "freezing" coconut soup. The only reason i didn't blow my top was the fact that i didn't want to ruin my friend's birthday. In these hard times especially, when you need to distinguish yourself with quality and service so that people would come to your restaurant, the folks at spice market need to put us (and themselves) out of our collective miseries and close down that place.

Re: “What The Pho Restaurant

Absolutely the best Vietnamese soup and rice dishes in the Atlanta area.

Re: “Pho Dai Loi

This is my favorite vietnamese restaurant in Atlanta. All ingredients are fresh and service is friendly.

Re: “Mint's Grill

Great Vietnamese food with very reasonable prices. Two entrees, two ice teas, an appetizer and a generous tip for the waiter was less than $40.00. We're going back tonight and I want to try everything on the menu.

Re: “Pho Number 1

My sister took me to Pho #1 for the first time and man was it delicious. It was such a nice fresh change from your regular salty saucy chinese. Veggie spring rolls=best food ever. Durian smoothie=worst food ever...but we had to try it. I also like how you can eat a giant bowl and not get too full.

Re: “Pho Hoa

This was a great experience for a Saturday lunch. Food is plentiful and delicious, but the service was slow and some servers seemed indifferent to our questions and requests. Maybe we just went on an "off" day for the staff. Will definitely give this place another try!!

Re: “Pho Hoa

We went tonight and were the only ones there because we arrived at 8:45 pm and they close at 10 pm. The soups were fantastic, the service friendly and jokey, and the sauces really spicy. It's my new favorite pho place in town.

Re: “Pho Hoa

Take a turn down Buford Highway and you’ll find at least a dozen places selling Pho. I’ve tried at least half of them, and for the most part they are good. But Pho Hoa has the best Pho in town. Let’s start with their menu – simple, REAL SIMPLE. There is soup, there is meat – if you don’t know what you are ordering, ASK. The people there will help you figure out what is what – and some of them even speak decent English. And that is ok – I would be weary of a Pho shop where the purveyors spoke too much English anyway. Look around and you will see enough Asian’s in there to give you comfort that this is GOOD FOOD. Their appetizer menu is ok – not spectacular, but then again why are you here? For the appetizers? I don’t think so! I suggest you either skip the appetizer or you get one of the more authentic Vietnamese appetizers – go ahead, I’ve never been disappointed. Now for the soup – you have to choose from a lot of different ones, but once you make your choice you need to decide from small, medium or GIGANTIC. I’ve never been able to polish off their large bowl, but if you are someone with a huge appetite go right ahead and try. The soup comes with a variety of fresh aromatic leafy vegetables and bean sprouts. Go ahead, put it all in there and stir it around. Don’t forget the chili sauce either – an essential element of Pho. Chopsticks and spoon. Look around, you’ll see people (men and women alike) unceremoniously slurping down spoons full of spicy broth and chewing on noodles and meat chopstick after chopstick. This isn’t fine dining, it’s great food for a great price that warms your soul, heals your body, and fills your belly.

Re: “Pho Number 1

Pho#1 is great! I'm a regular there. I love the beef stew.

Re: “Pho Hoa

Althought the atmosphere is that of a large fast food restaurant, the Pho is the best that Atlanta has to offer! While bountyful in its condiments the price is very affordable; around $6.00 for a large bowl of soup stocked with rices noodles, a variety of meats and vegetable. I give Pho Ha 5-starts. I drive 15 miles just to have their house special Pho!!!

Re: “What The Pho Restaurant

Florence, You need to learn more about Vietnamese food before your write about it. You don't even know what "bun" is.
