Vietnamese Bistro Opens

Posted By on Mon, May 3, 2010 at 3:37 PM


I had been driving past Vietnamese Bistro every day on my way home from work for the past several months. Frankly, I didn't think the restaurant — located on Cleveland at the old site of what I believe was Royal Dragon — was ever going to open.

It opened for business on Saturday.

I stopped by on Sunday around 5 p.m., and it was hopping. When I noted the crowd to the young server, he enthused, "That's because we serve good food!"

Included on the extensive menu are several phos, squid, shrimp, and chicken stir-frys, steamed rice dishes, hot pots, and more. There's also some advanced fare: chan ga rut xuong, a sour salad with boneless chicken feet; chao long, pork innards in rice porridge. The vegetarian selection is a bit skimpy, though they can probably cook to-order.

Prices average between $7 to $12.


I ordered the vegetable stir-fry with tofu to-go. The dish included broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, onions, and tofu in a rich brown sauce. The tofu was expertly done as was the broccoli, which can get overcooked in these type of dishes.

Vietnamese Bistro is open Tuesday-Sunday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m.

Vietnamese Bistro, 153 N. Cleveland (725-1222)
