vietnamese food in bangkok

Vietnamese Food in Bangkok.

Oh well.. lately, I am kind of obsessed with Vietnamese food, especially, with Pho.

Surprisingly, in Bangkok there are not many of good Vietnamese food around.
I mean since we are being very close to Vietnam, We should have lots of their food around here eh ?

Actually, I have already tried some of them...

Le Dalat Indochine is a fine dining restaurant - kind of (very) expensive. But the food is extremely good. The Restaurant itself is exotically very well decorated. Good for taking your date there. ;)
Rate : *****

Pho @ Foodloft- Central Chilom - Pho is Good enough and not expensive at all and the concept of Fooloft itself is relaxing & casual. Everyone can go enjoy the food and be at ease there.
Rate : ***

Ngon Lam @ Thonglor - Their food is good enough but not that impressive. To be fair to them, if you were a noodle-lover, then you would be happy enough with their Pho.. though it tastes more a bit like Thai noodles.
Rate : ***

Thang Long @ Lang Suan - Food is good enough for what you have paid for. Pho is good. The Restaurant is well decorated.
The service that needs to be improved!!
Rate : ****

Note : All of pictures in this post were taken from "Thang Long"

Cook Book Recommendation : If you are interested in Vietnamese food and be interested in knowing more about it, then you should get this book.

you should check out xuan mai on sukhumvit 11. sunday evenings are great because sometimes the owner brings stuff in fresh from vietnam that same day. i think they have a few unconventional dishes. anything is pretty much good including the homemade juices.

these are Thai people make pho, it taste terrible, they have no basic of how a pho bow should taste like, im planning to open a pho rest. and ask a vietnamese cook to come to Thailand to make pho 100% vietnamese.
how's that sound?
