Vietnamese in West Palm Beach area

Jerry M. Bank Dec 25, 2001 01:48 PM

Last year I was in Lake Worth and ate at a terrible Vietnamese restaurant. Does anyone know of a good one?

Suggestions for other wonderful dining in the area are also welcome.

    I have to agree- Saigon Tokyo was way beyond what I had expected. It rivals Phan's Garden in Milwaukee which is better than any I've tried in Chicago. We did not try any of the Japanese dishes.

      One of the best secrets for excellent Viet food is served at the Saigon-Tokyo Restaurant on Jog and 10th, northeast corner.The chef is a master and all his dishes are exemplary...you might be the only non-asian in the place but his Pho, his grilled meats and fish stews will give you a new meaning of excellent viet food.
      Having traveled throughout Vietnam, I am so happy to have this place near me.
      In short, the place is a treasure
      The prices are reasonable and will "blow" all the other so-called vietnamese places away.
      If you just want a flashy expensive place with terrible faux-viet food, then do not go there.

        Sakyo, Sakyo, Sakyo, Sakyo. Pho is phenomenal. On Okeechobee Blvd. and Jog, next to Toys R Us.

        Best Vietnamese by far is Saigon City in Lauderhill Lakes on rt 7.

        You obviously went to Saigon Tokyo in Lake Worth which is Sushi and watered down Viet food.

            Yes I do.
            It's called Red Cyclo, on the southwest corner of Congress and Boynton Beach Blvd in Boynton Beach. I just reviewed it for City Link Magazine.
            For fancier Vietnamese food, try La Tre in Boca.
            You'll love them both.

              I tried to find this place last night, and I couldn't. Is it near Target? If not, where is it near?
