The pho was delicious and so were the fresh spring rolls. The service was fast and attentive and it was easy to find. Glad to see you can get pho in Sioux City.

Stayed overnight and wanted Asian food for dinner. Nice large windows, ample seating, friendly staff and nicely decorated. This restaurant is not downtown but is easy to find. Fast service, inexpensive and large tasty portions. No alcohol served here.

This is a flavorful treat from a Vietnamese family. I eat there often. Authentic food. You can order in English or Vietnamese. They know what I like to eat and are very attentive and pleasant.

I really wanted to like this place because everyone else seems to and they deliver. However, after 3 separate visits (one in restaurant, one take-out, and one delivery) I don't think I will be trying again. I don't know how else to say it other than I am just not a fan of their food. I tried their Vietnamese food... More

I've been many, many times over the years. After trying almost everything on the menu, I'd like to say ,"Great job!" The atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired, however, the food and service are smashing. My best friend even had her upscale rehearsal dinner catered by them.

I like this place. I really like their spring rolls. And I have tried many different dishes but I think my favorites are the almond chicken and the cashew chicken. Lots of veggies. Big Bang for the buck!

DaKao has amazing Pho! If you don't care for tripe or the Vietnamese meatballs, go with #7. The #17 Porkchop w/rice is great if you have a picky eater.

Underrated! Great food. Except for the bahn mi sandwich which kind of sucked. Everything else is awesome! Just don't mind the poor service. He's an old Vietnamese guy living in America, what do you expect?

Da Kao is the best! If you don't think you can eat from a different culture I would challenge you to go to Da Kao, order the chicken noodle soup (I think it is #9) and some shrimp, an order of fresh spring rolls, and a lemonade and you will be hooked. The chinese is even good here but why... More

The waitress acted as if she'd rather be just about anywhere else. The food was not up to usual standards.
