This is a weird location with an entrance that looks like you are entering a dive hotel but the food made up for it. Tasty, fresh and plentiful with a huge selection of entrees as well as a nice selection of local and international beers. The look inside goes from a rock cave look to a nautical theme mixed in...

Very good food (we had spring rolls and Pho) , service was good (but we were the first for lunch there). The restaurant is in a building basement, there are no windows, and the place is dark.

This is a neighborhood place in a dark basement. Get over the decor and the lax service, order the duck with noodles. The portion could feed 2-3 people. I order the shrimp/pork summer rolls. It comes with sweet and spicy condiments. My running joke is they have sparkling wine on the menu but 90% of the time it isn't available.... More

When I worked in Belltown, I went to GreenLeaf several times a week for lunch. No matter what you have in your group: vegans, gluten-free, paleo, etc. Green Leaf can handle them.

The service was very poor. It took a while to find someone to seat us. There seemed to be people working there, or friends of the people working there, but no one really seemed to want to pay attention to us during our visit - when we wanted to be seated (one other party in the whole place, so it...

We got combo pho and spicy beef noodle soup. The noodles were soft, soup was flavorful and rather tasty for the price. You can tell the beef came straight from the freezer by the way they stick together in the soup though. Service wasn't exactly the fastest, but please don't take the condiments tray away from our table without asking... More

Found this large basement restaurant without doing any research for a late single course lunch after a morning of museums. Dark and seemingly forbidding in the middle of the day with fairly niche decor (walls covered in large snow flakes) the staff were pleasant and efficient and the pho (variously chicken and beef) wholesome, hearty and filling. Would do it... More

My Seattle friends invited me along to celebrate the fourth with them at one of this, their favorite Vietnamese restaurant located near Chinatown. When we arrived it was packed but we found a table. Nothing fancy here and I think since it was a holiday and most restaurants were closed, they were quite prepared for the crowd but read on,... More

My family and I arrive early in the evening and had a decent dinner. Nothing special, just okay. The location is in a downstairs basement which felt a little dark and dingy. There is a huge bar and even though I didn't experience it, I'm guessing this is a very popular late night spot for drinks and karaoke.

Thank ChadSD
