All 4 of us loved the restaurant, once we found it. There is no name on the building, so be sure to look at the picture and note the blue and white striped awning. When GPS says you've arrived, that's your landmark. We were looking for a place to eat before opera in the heights performance and this was perfect.... More

Great for both me - meat - and my wife - vegan. Great tofu dishes. Imperial rolls are awesome. If they have it go for the soft shell crab. BYOB is an added value.

I have always enjoyed Vietnam Restaurant, but it's been a good while since I've been there. I wondered where the lunch crowd from days gone by were....I think this outing answered that question. I ordered shrimp with mixed vegetables from lunch menu. Not too many vegetables but a lot of sauce and the shrimp were way overcooked and small, not... More

We love the lunch menu and the Noodle salad with shrimp is awesome (Tom Buc Nam). Our favorite lunch items are Lemon Grass Tofu, Sweet and Sour pork/chicken/shrimp!

As I begin this review, I want to admit that the evening was already off to a bad start when I arrived at Vietnam Restaurant. A major freeway (I-10) that I was going to take was closed over the weekend, sending me on a long and complicated detour. What's more, as I was en route, my previously faithful TomTom GPS... More

There are 1000's of Vietnamese choices in Houston area. The Vietnam on 19th Street in the Heights is still the best. Value prices for high quality cooking. Wide menu. Check hours before heading over. Try the soft shell crab. Charbroiled pork wraps w peanut sauce. Or anything else that sounds good. It will be !

Ordered sesame chicken luncheon, chicken soaked in heavy sauce of some sort, can bits were over cooked and required a knife but really not worth eating. Fried rice was so-so as well as egg roll. Other person's luncheon was okay, pork w/noodles & spring roll. Neither of us will be returning however. Had once again been fooled with another person's... More
