When you see the little guardians at the gateway to Little Saigon, you are near Mangosteen. Mangosteen is a small family run restaurant serving up delicious Vietnamese cuisine. The hearty offerings are chicken, beef or seafood in broth or on a bed of savory garlic noodles. Since I am partial to noodles, today I ordered the cubed filet mignon steak... More

We have been going to this little hole-in-the-wall for years and always order the same thing-Banana Blossom Salad and the crepe with shrimp-we think those are the best we've come across in the area.

We bought two soups, both with seafood. The bowls were very large and we barely managed to finish. Everything was very tasty. We also took the fresh coconut juice, which was served in the coconuts themselves. Very good, make sure to try it!

Nice place right across the street from the Phoenix Hotel. Title of review says it all, but since I need more characters: good food, fair amount of vegetarian options, solid service, and reasonable prices.

The eggplant and grilled pork dishes were delicious. Been going to Vietnamese restaurants for 20 years, and this is one of the best.
