This restaurant has a wonderful vibe. Even waiting in line can be tolerated because the food and its prices are well worth it. Besides, it moves pretty quickly. Once inside, you place your order and wait to be seated. If you’ve ordered a drink, it’ll...More

We took a trip to Portland and went downtown to specifically try this Vietnamese restaurant. Ended up with take out as there was no parking and the line up was out the door to get a table. You order first then wait for a table....More

I love love love this place. Happy hour is delicious and cheap and the drinks are good and strong! There is usually a wait and line down the street which is the only bummer, they should expand. And they won't seat you unless every person...More

Dropped in for lunch on a cold rainy day and had the most delicious Pho! I had the rare steak and well done brisket. The broth was perfect it’s one of the best Pho’s I’ve tasted. Definitely worth the wait in line.

Wow! This place blew me away. The curry was simply outstanding. So was everything else we ordered! I could have eaten here every single night of our trip. The place is hip, and definitely loud. It's a unique system they have, but the food is...More

I'm reluctant to write a review for Luc Lac. I don't even live in Portland. All I know is my brother and his fiancee do and they took my father and I there for dinner. The line was long. I got to the front and...More

They order on a first come, first served basis. The people ordering take-out were helped when there were no tables, but I think that had more to do with the people in the queue than the restaurant staff. Either way, the... More
