Raleigh >Pho Far East Inc
Quick Service, good basic thai/vietnamese food. I work next door to La Vie and have been eating lunch there for about 1-2 years now. I've found their service to be responsive and their food very good. They're definitely not a 5 star restaurant with mood lighting and soft pastels on the wall, but if you want good and quick thai/vietnamese food, they're one of the best.
Most overrated Asian food in town- not kidding!. Very unusual for me to spend time writing a review, but our recent experience here was so god-awful I decided to share it. Sat for 21 minutes before someone even offered water - no embellishment. A party of of four next to us with children got up and left without getting served. Spring rolls, recommended by others, were bland and slightly soggy. Beer was room temperature, ok if you're from UK...worst foul was the very fatty chicken, like a cheap Chinese restaurant, and the meals were all cool - left us asking what's the 9.5 for...? Say la vie and look elsewhere for authentic Thai or Vietnamese food in the triangle. Instead had a great (excellent Japanese food!) at Waraji.
Not one of my favorites for Thai. I went twice, once with friends, 2nd time my wife wanted to try it. Ordered Panang Curry first time. I thought it was horrible, no flavor. Soup was bland. Tried another Curry dish and it was bad as well. My firends didn't dislike it, but my wife agrees with me and doesn't want to go back. Many better restaurants in area if you want Thai food. Im sure the service was friendly and ok, but I really don't remember.
Bad service. their service is slow and the pho is really bad too...
Best in Town!. BEST Tofu I have ever had (lived all over U.S. and Japan) - crisp, not 'eggy' delicious marinade. Clean, affordable, VERY healthy. I have wasted much time and food trying to replicate their dishes at home. Try thier Mussuman curry, fresh spring rolls, Evil Jungle Prince. Their rich coffee comes with sweetened milk. I have 10 different kinds of peanut sauce at home... theirs is the the best and if I could, I would buy it to take home!
Its true what they say. Nothing really needs to be said here, but I wanted to confirm that the good reviews for this place really are true. I have been very happy with the food and the service.
My favorite place for Asian food in the Triangle. I have been going here for a long time. My husband and I love to order fresh spring rolls. I love the Pho Ga. My husband usually gets curry off of the Thai menu. The beer is cold. The service is good. The prices are very reasonable.
Great Food, Excellent Service. I had the Pad Thai, which was delicious and contained six medium sized shrimp and my husband had the Green Curry with chicken. I selected "spicy" which was actually fairly mild, my husband chose just one category up - "extra spicy", he enjoyed it but it was way too hot for me. In addition, we had the coconut soup w/ chicken (Excellent!) and fresh spring rolls that were so fresh, you would swear the ingredients were just picked from the garden. Service was attentive and efficient. I would highly recommend this restaurant for tasty, affordable (two lunch entrees and two appetizers just under $25 including tip), Thai food. Next time, I want to try the Vietnamese cuisine.
A triad of eastern flavors please different palates at this unassuming Raleigh treasure..
Formerly known as Que Huong, La Vie is a welcome escape from the bustle of Capital Boulevard. Diners shouldn't be fooled by the strip mall exterior--inside is quiet and welcoming. Specializing in Thai, Vietnamese and sushi, this Pan Asian restaurant's reasonable prices and quality food make it popular with the regulars. Try the green curry with squid or nosh on some of the least expensive sushi in Raleigh.
