going on the advice of the other two reviews here we decided Vietnam was worth a try. We just moved to Corpus Christi from Houston and were trying to find our vietnamese food fix. I was instantly put off by the decor, but our waitress was sharp if a little pushy. I was really looking for some yummy noodles, and the other review here had said they had a good selection, but the waitress informed us that they were trying to do a more 'gourmet' menu and had therefore removed the noodle dishes but she could accomodate with a side of vermicelli if I liked. We ordered some Japanese beer, Asahi black my favorite! And only 4 bucks! Then we ordered the curry coconut and black pepper shrimp with the side of noodles. The food was timely and good, but the dinner salad did dissapoint. The dessert tray was seriously lacking as it looked like the kind of pre-fab 'goumet' mousse desserts that come frozen to restaurants, but I was really wanting something sweet so I got the creme brulee, because you can't fake caramelized sugar. Then the bill came and, guess what, 9 dollars for the 'side' of noodles! A 75 dollar bill for 2 entrees, 1 dessert, a coffee, and 3 beers! That meal would have been 30 dollars max in any of our favorite vietnamese restaurants in Houston and the portions would have been larger. The only thing gourmet about Vietnam was the price.
Pros: $4 Asahi Black!
Cons: $9 side of noodles
