Upscale French-Vietnamese in lovely Russian Hill surroundings. – In Short
This rose- and cream-colored restaurant features intimate tables and booths, light wood pillars, high windows, and a range of eclectic Vietnamese art. White-tablecloth ambience and service is tempered with friendly neighborhood warmth and reasonable prices. The long menu boasts standout beef and green salads, luscious pho and lemongrass soups, and a healthy array of tender pork, seafood and chicken sautee options with lots of vegetables.
I'm going again tonight – Whenever I'm tired or sweaty after the gym, this is where I eat. The food is generously portioned and incredibly tasty. I highly recommend the caramel pork in a clay pot. The owners began recognizing us on our second visit, and now welcome us as if we were family.
OMG!!!! ITS THE GREATEST!!!! – I was first introduced to this incredible restaurant in 2000. My boyfriend at the time had been doing some work for the family that owns the restaurant and they brought us lunch. The lunch consisted of rice and the crispy chicken. One bite and five years later I still wake up in the middle of the night haunted by the amazing flavors, shaking because I NEED IT. The family, the Nguyens, are some of the best people I know and truly know how to make you feel at home. If you do decide to check this place out just know that there is no turning back. Once you're in, you're in for life!!!
GREAT RESTAURANT – I went to Aux Deelices on a recommendation and was surprised at how great it was. Amazing Vietnamese food at a fraction of the cost of Slanted Door.
Upscale Vietnamese cuisine and downscale prices make Aux Delices a good choice for a fulfilling and inexpensive meal in Russian Hill. – The Scene
Granted, the decor could use some work- pink walls and varnished wood trim do little for the mood- but the food is good enough that the less-than-elegant ambience fades into the background. Put your trust in the friendly wait staff, who are adept at providing some good choices.
The menu offers a staggering 65 choices, most priced at less than $6. A recommended starter is the shrimp-lemon soup fortified with pineapple, mushrooms and bean sprouts. Follow it with the always-wonderful Vietnamese crepe filled with shrimp and pork, pan-fried marinated catfish, or Singing Chicken, a boneless marinated chicken breast sauteed with ginger and spices. An excellent option for two or more diners is the ganhoi--a whole chicken stuffed with rice, ground pork, chicken, mushrooms, onions and spices and roasted a golden brown.
Best Delivery – Everything I have eaten here was wonderful, except the dumplings. They use very high quality meat and I have tried many different dishes and always been happy. The portions are a bit smaller than your usual Chinese place, which is probably why the quality is superior. Great food that is cheap.
Tell your friends – I recomend this place to everyone who likes any kind of Asian cuisine. We went there for the first time this week and were wowed by every dish we ordered - the bill came and it was cheap!!! Great place with great service.
Good to the last bite!! – Every time we have here - we have walked away happy. Everything on the menu is wonderful, staff is the friendliest in the city and the price is great!
Addictively Delicious! – The only Vietnamese food I had exposure to before coming here was Pho noodles. This place is tasty, the portions are generous without being too much. I highly recommend the Beef Satay Egg Noodles and the #57 (seafood and vegetables in a tasty garlic ginger sauce). I tried this place once because it was so close to my house. Now every time I have out-of-town visitors (or any other excuse!), I take them here for tasty meals with pleasant service and comfortable atmosphere.
