Duy Tan & Bun Cha Hanoi

  • b

I'll be in Dallas this week and am hoping to explore the Vietnamese food while there. Bun Cha Hanoi is one of my favorite dishes and I think a restaurant called Duy Tan makes it - does anyone know the address for Duy Tan? Or have any recommendations for other Bun Cha spots?

  1. Charles Kemp's excellent guide to good food in East Dallas gives Duy Tan very high marks, and references the Bun Cha Hanoi. The restaurant is in Garland.


    1. Passed by the strip mall where Duy Tan is today, and Duy Tan HAS CLOSED! In its place is a new Vietnamese restaurant called An Giang. Anyone been yet?

        Oh no! They had some of the best Bun I've ever had....

        That's strange - they always seemed to do a lot of business. I'll have to try it soon and hope they haven't changed their recipes.

          I used to go to Duy Tan about once a month for the Pho. However, some time last year they have "upgraded" their menu, as well as the prices; while the sizes of the Pho seem to be shrinking. Since then, I hadn't really gone back to Duy Tan much at all. I may give the new place a try this week.

          I tried Duy Tan several times and was never impressed with their pho.

          I prefer Bistro B and Pho 85.

            I think it's Pho 95. That's where my Vietnamese friend sent me. Very very good.

            The replacement is An Giang. They've spiffed up the decor a bit, and the menu is a bit different (no bun with chicken - one of my Duy Tan favories). The food is good, although Duy Tan pho was superior. It was busy right from the start - a good sign in that neighborhood. Still, now that I know that Duy Tan/Pala is nearby,I'm going back.

          3. Yes! The best! Check Duy Tan out at new location with new name PaLa Cafe' - 2334 W. Buckingham Rd, Suite 370, Garland, Tx 75042, Telephone # 214-227-4619 on the same strip with Saigon Taipei Supermarket.
