This was a first: dining in a restaurant in January inside where I had to keep my coat and hat on during my entire meal. This place is really for those on a tight budget as this place barely had heat and I was freezing...More

We have frequented Cafe Huong a few since Check, Please! reviewed it some years back. The interior is nothing to gawk at but the food is consistent. And our most recent trip yielded a toddler/drink disaster, which wasn't embarrassing thanks to the staffs quick and...More

Meh, Was disappointed for the very 1st time. I think "Saigon Pho" in Oak Park was much better than this. The staff did not seem interested in serving the customers including our table. In fact they looked angry to serve you based on body language...More

I eat here way too much, and I am not sorry. Try the pho. It is happiness in a bowl. My son loves number 46.

This Chinatown location is way better than the one on Argyle St. in Uptown. This location is a wonderful spot just off the main drag on Cermark. Chef Jason and his wife have been open for 10 years now, Cooking. Their food speaks for itself....More

Despite visiting Chinatown our whole lives, we had never attempted the Vietnamese food there or anywhere in Chicago. We decided it was time and we reviewed an older episode of a local foodie show called Check Please to get some ideas on what to order....More

Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures

You have a Cafe Hoang on Argyle Street, but this is either a different restaurant or a different location. This is in Chicago's Chinatown.
