Vietnamese options, not far from Marina del Rey?

I haven't seen any Vietnamese restaurants nearby - anyone know of decent ones?

    Never tried any of these places, but I've heard various things (some good and nothing that horrible) about China Beach Vietnamese Bistro in Venice and Le Saigon in Westwood.

      On Wilshire between Westgate and Barrington on the north side of the street is a plaza where the most notable place is an all you can eat Chinese Buffet. Next door is Pho 99. The chef is from North Vietnam and his broth is really very good. Sweet and aromatic. They have the usual muxture of beef choices and a nice chicken pho (Pho Ga) though it all white meat.

        You could also check out this thread (more pho specific, but similar idea): http://www.chowhound.com/topics/383253

        Le Saigon has stuff besides pho, and might be worth checking out.
