Very personable staff with good knowledge of the menu. Recommend the happy birds nest since it's one of the most unique plates I've seen in a long time. Good portions and prices.

My favorite Vietnamese restaurant in the Twin Cities. Good variety, fresh, friendly staff parentheses (which is unusual in an Asian restaurant). The sauce on the potato dishes is quite thick. Two egg roll noodle salad is fantastic!

I stopped in for lunch. My order was taken right away, and my food and tea came super quickly. I had the beef and seafood pho, and it was very good. The manager was very friendly and welcoming, checking in with customers. I would definitely come back if I'm on this side of town again.

This is a family run, small place where the owners really care whether you're happy or not. Always greeted with a warm smile, they truly have it down. The food is solid though I've had the chicken curry more than once and it was different each time. I'm ok with that - it just depends on the cook I suppose.... More

When we visit Minnesota, we always go to our favorite Vietnamese restaurant, 2 or 3 times, if we can! The staff is so friendly & welcome us by name! The food is OUTSTANDING! Every menu item is delicious! Egg rolls, Pho, stir fry and all are wonderful. Don't miss this place near Maplewood Mall on WhiteBear. Avenue!

Sometimes the small, family run restaurants are the best and Vietnam Star is no exception. It is tiny and quaint, but they have very good food. I never had Vietnamese food before 2 years ago after meeting my guy and he loves all kinds of cuisine, especially Vietnamese. They have Pho. We always get the grilled pork and egg roll... More

I have enjoyed the food here many times. The Vietnamese spring rolls are a must on the sample list. We usually order the sampler appetizer. A wide variety of good main dish options, the soups are great and uniquely flavored. I've never had bad food here. Sample the house spicy sauce. The service is friendly and the owner is a... More

I have been there three times now and each time the food has been consistently excellent. Prepared well, nice balance of flavors and beautifully presented. And the owner, Christy, is as delightful a host as they come. I would heartily recommend!

This is a great restaurant. The food is good. Spiced right, not just a bunch of warm food with some non-descript "Asian" sauce poured on it. The manager is very friendly and works hard to make you feel at home. The service is sharp. No waiting aeons here to order, eat or get your check like some other establishments. Recommend.... More
