Wanted dinner with some flavor and stumbled across this jewel down the street from the convention center. With the AOTA convention in town to celebrate 100 years of Occupational Therapy and 13000 OTs running about, seats for good food were limited for our party of three so we dined at the bar. We started with the freshest and lightest and... More

First time here and the reviews I had read were spot on. I had the green papaya salad with shrimp to start, it was good but very sweet for me (I like the sourness of the papaya) and the shrimp were tiny. Next was the duck and bamboo soup that was amazing...savory broth with the available additions of fresh jalapeños,... More

We ate here with family a couple of days before Thanksgiving. The nice young waiter was very accommodating to my young grandsons. We had a variety of meat and fish dishes with rice, dumplings, and noodles. Some were excellent and others so-so. All in all it was a good Chinatown experience for our family.

I liked the food and the specialty martini I got. I was iffy about ordering from the bar but it was delicious. The apps and sides are pretty standard throughout any Asian restaurant, but the entrees vary. Read the description of what they offer it might not be what you want!

I am a weekly regular here almost every Friday. Why? you ask. I'm usually pretty tired by the end of the work week and just want to decompress. I go here and enjoy the vegetarian spring rolls, duck or seafood noodle soup. My favorite entrees are the salt baked seafood or squid, pad thai, stir fried vermicelli, chicken in curry... More

The dining area has changed over the years (for the best) but the food is consistent. I never had a bad meal, always fresh and delicious.

Been coming here for years and food has always been delicious. Service is speedy and presentation precise as well as a great bar selection. Staff is wonderful and it's great seeing some waiters who have been there for years! We always order the seven course beef which is plenty for a party of 2 for a reasonable price of $34.... More

My family and I have been going to Vietnam Palace for nearly 15 years. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very relaxing. The restaurant is tastefully decorated with lighting, pictures and a bamboo ceiling. The soups are excellent as is the charbroiled chicken and spring rolls. The food is very fresh tasting and not overly flavored. We go to Chinatown... More

After years, this is looking very tired and the staff complacent and inattentive. The sheet menu is now in a folder and the prices went up. They put a brand on the folder, prices went up again. But the decor and food has not improved. What was good value eats is more expensive than, frankly, it is worth with some... More

For the beef soup. I counted, there were5 little pieces of meet, 1 inch in diameter! This place is all about saving money. I... More
