We had visited cafe minh on many prior occasions. This was a Friday night at 7:45 and they only had about 7 seated tables. Our apparently new server was sweet and tried, however, the entire meal was disjointed, late, and lacking. We did speak to the manager and she was confrontational and down right rude. The food, when received, was... More

Franco Asian Fusion..... Great service by Alex. My wife had the beggar purses appetizer and the lobster tortellini. She thought both were very good. I had the speckle trout flash fried with vegetables in a broth and jasmine rice. We had each a glass of wine that pared splendidly. Service was good and attentive and friendly.

I cannot believe it took me so long to get back to this fabulous Asian fusion restaurant. The oyster special fried on top of creamed spinach was incredibly good with creamy oysters inside. I had the lacquered duck that had tremendous flavor although I found it a tad overdone. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

The exterior is plain, "corner store", and the interior is cozy, clean, and nicely decorated. The wait staff wears smart, pressed outfits, and the tables are fine, white linen. We ordered an appetizer of Crab & Corn Bisque, and our entrees were Scallops over Asian Egg Plant and Grilled Shrimp, with White Beans & Rice. Everything was superb. Expect to... More

We met friends for lunch at Minh. The menu is Vietnamese, but featured many sandwiches and even a burger. Some sandwiches came with French fries, not options one expects at a Vietnamese restaurant. We started with shrimp vegetable rolls and chicken spring rolls with traditional sauces. All were terrific. I had deep-fried flounder with dipping sauce and vegetables. The fish... More

We invariably find ourselves with Cafe Minh at the top of our list for old standbys in New Orleans. The menu is very deep, the prices appropriate for the quality of the food and the presentation, and we've never had a less than gracious server. For those visiting NO and staying near the Quarter, it's worth the trip (via street... More

A group of us went and had fun evening here. Weds bottles of wine are half price and we had several. We got Spring Rolls and Coconut Shrimp for appetizers. Very tasty. Two gals split the speckled trout and it was plenty for both. Several got the Special Drum Fish and ate every morsel. I got the Vegetable soup which... More

Would think this was more oriental cuisine but wonderful southern cuisine. The crab and melon appetizer is not to be missed, imaginative and delicious. Not your traditional soft shell crab, coated in a nutty mixture was not greasy at all. Has a peach cobbler for dessert and also extraordinary. Service was excellent. Conveniently located a trolley ride from French Quarter... More
