I was craving noodles the other day, and rather than ignore my tummy’s plead and have salad, I decided to consult with menupages.com. Thank god I did! I discovered a gem by the name of Veatery, which not only satisfied my craving for noodles, but easily made its way onto my "go to" list for reasonably priced restaurants. I ordered the Banh Hoi (# 81 on the menu) with grilled chicken, and boy was it yummy!? The grilled chicken comes on skewers, and is so delicious you’ll practically want to kiss the host on the forehead for serving it to you. As if that’s not enough, the dish comes with a Vietnamese dipping sauce (Nuom Cham) on the side, which when poured on top of the chicken and rice noodles, is heavenly! AND if that’s not enough, once you’re done with your meal the server comes over to your table and hands you a wet napkin right out of the wrapper. These are not your regular ol’ paper wet naps either; these are quality fabric-type napkins. You’ll almost want to bathe yourself right at the table, they’re so soft. Anyway, Veatery is a go! I’ve been there twice, and both times I ordered the Banh Hoi with grilled chicken. The appetizers I sampled on both visits, however; were subpar, BUT the Banh Hoi more than made up for them. Coincidently, both times I went were Wednesday evenings. I don’t know if the service changes at all during peak hours, but I find weekday evenings are relatively quiet.

So, I don't do this very often..and that is, change my rating/review of a place. I order the same lunch special from this place..Ga Sate(Beef) and it was very enjoyable. That being said, the last few visits I noticed a marked degradation of the quality of the meet being used. So, today I returned the dish as the beef was so fatty that I had to spit it out.. The manager then came over and tried to convince me that the sauce was different..lol. Nice try! This is a classic sign of an establishment looking to cut costs by switching to inferior ingredients. Bye Bye Veatery..it was nice while it lasted..........

This ain't no Saigon Grill; I believe that chef went to Spice Noodle, which has the very same flavors for the Vietnamese dishes as SG had... this is decent but not as tasty for my old faves from SG of Bo Luc Lac, Pho Ga, Curry Ga and La Sa Tom... oh, and Cha Gio.

Love Vietnamese food. The summer rolls and hot and sour soup are amazing! Portions are enormous, when dining in or picking up the people are friendly and helpful. At the minimum a once a week dining option.

This restaurant used to be called: Saigon Grill. That was my childhood restaurant. The Pho Ga is the best noodle soup ever. The dumplings are top notch. I just cannot believe that restaurant was closed for 9 years and now it is back in business. The chefs are great. Thanks for re-opening it back.
