We are currently in Las Vegas and I would love comments on the vietnamese pho restaurants on Spring Mountain Road. (oh, we are going out to dinner within the hour...no pressure here!) I just checked with the concierge and she did not have feedback on any of them but gave me a menu for Kung Fu and she also recommended Lotus of Siam. I am almost voiceless from a cold and want nothing more than a big bowl of incredibly delicious spicy satisfying noodle soup.... where would a chowhound go?

    I ate lunch recently at Pho Saigon 8 (I think that was the name of it.....there was Saigon and an 8 in the name) on Spring Mountain just east of Jones. The pho was very tasty and a generous serving.

    Sorry, realize that this is too late, but there's always tomorrow. Also, for a different sort of noodle soup, check out Togoshi's on Twain just west of Maryland Parkway. Its more of a lunch place, and some hounds have commented that they wouldn't want to be in that neighborhood at night...

      thanks, you're right..there's always tomorrow..we are here a couple more days. We ended up at Capitol Seafood in Chinatown and had very good vietnamese sweet/sour soup and an overall good experience

        Capitol seafood is good. I also recommend Pho Saigon 8. It is on the way home from work for me, so I have probably eaten there close to 100 times over the past few years. I have never been disappointed. We get the normal Pho #12, the lemongrass beef, the beef stew, and the combination fried rice. It is consistently great.

        quick update: went to Togoshi's for lunch today and it was closed...the door was open so we peeked inside...owner came and mumbled something about a health inspection....oh dear, hope it turned out ok.

        Ate at the taco place in the same strip mall instead...Not bad. Not bad at all.

          Unfortunately, it appears that the inspection did not go well. Closed for now, with a blue health inspector's notice on the door. Let's hope this is just temporary.

            HOLY crap! Togoshi's closed? Sad, but not totally surprising.

              I went to Togoshi on March 8, it was very much open. I hadn't seen this news on the board, but I did think to myself that it was a hell of a lot cleaner than the last time I went in there.
