I enjoy all kinds of "ethnic" foods including Vietnamese. I find the Green Papaya to be outstanding. I go there at least once every time I visit a Fort Smith. When I was in town a week ago my cousin was also visiting along with his Vietnamese wife and 20-something daughters. All of us loved the food and have now... More

I am not a big fan of Asian foods however I thought this was ok..... sorry but my level of knowledge in Asian food has limited my comments! A clean place with great service and I'm sure if I had asked for help in ordering I would have been more pleased. Try it!

I highly recommend you try out this place. I really enjoy the Number 10 and the Number 2, but their vegetarian options are also amazing! The V2, which is vegetarian tofu fried rice, is excellent.

Pho was good. Spring roll sauce was tasty, but spring rolls seemed bland. I didn't care for the atmosphere at this restaurant. It felt a little quiet and stuffy. I didn't feel great about having 2 young kids there being loud. I wouldn't say it is a fancy place, but it doesn't feel like a relaxed family restaurant either. Prices... More

I always eat the S1 salad. If you like cabbage and grilled chicken you will love this. It is served with a fish sauce dressing that is great!

Well first of all Vietnamese is not my favorite Asian cuisine. I like hot spicy foods. The good news is this place makes some excellent home made hot sauce! I struggle a little with the fish sauce used in Vietnamese cooking, but there are plenty of dishes here that do not have it. My wife loves this place, but I... More

We enjoyed our visit, but there were too many choices, too much emphasis on presentation and not enough on flavor, and the restaurant gave the impression they were going for sophisticated, but the environment felt more fast-food. We all had difficulty making choices from the menu, half of us liked our food, the other half was disappointed. The prices were... More

My wife and I stopped in for an early lunch. The exterior looks like an old drive-in restaurant with mirrored windows. But once inside it is well decorated and the staff is attentive and friendly. Only problem we encountered was the intense smell of incinse ... some folks are not used to this and I am one of them. The... More

Vietnamese food that is truly excellent. Family owned and operated. Spotless place. 2 locations. Try #28! I have taken visiting VIP's there and also my plumber and all are comfortable. The best in town. Well worth the time to try it. You will be back soon.

I can't really add anything to the positive reviews here. I had the #16 and the shrimp spring rolls. Definitely recommend coming here!
