I've tried Saigon on University many times and am left only really liking the sandwiches (banh mi?) and the rice noodle salad. I found another place called Trieu Chau had the best soup (Pho) of my life. Recently I ate at Que Nha and had a rice dish in a clay pot (can't even remember the name) that was excellent. My experience at Mai Village was all right...I liked the indoor koi pond better then the food.
My issue is that whenever I deviate from my favorite at any of these places I am hugely dissapointed. Does anyone out there have any other suggestions? I have heard rumors of places where you can "cook at your table,"
More specifically, are there other Vietnamese Restaurants to add to this list? If so, what do you recommend?
