We’re still wholly enamored with COM VIETNAMESE GRILL more than two years after it opened and set foodie hearts ablaze with grilled meats, bold herbs and a swanker atmosphere than you’ll find at the pho houses that populate the rest of Buford Highway. It’s still the best in town at marrying home-style dishes with high-quality ingredients and friendly service. When you’re in the mood for spice, mint, basil, charred meat and vermicelli, this is the place to go. less...

COM VIETNAMESE GRILL took the foodie population by storm when it opened more than a year ago. Food & Wine magazine even gave it national acclaim as a “best.” What’s so good? Deliciously marinated and grilled meats — pork, beef, duck — wrapped in grape leaves, served over rice or vermicelli with herbs and raw vegetables. Even the tofu is spectacular. The staff is completely fluent in English, so you don’t have to play charades to get a good meal. less...

There are dozens of Vietnamese restaurants in our city, including those that cater to gourmet-minded American palates. This year, we have to cite COM VIETNAMESE GRILL. This small cafe’s menu is a completely unique riff on classic street food, like apple and papaya salad but here garnished with roasted duck, if you choose. You can top vermicelli with a selection of ground meats (including lamb) rolled into la lot leaves, which resemble grape leaves and are said to be good for hiccups and nausea. There are amazingly spiced mussels scattered with peanuts, and our favorite special, roasted rabbit. less...

We are in shock. We remain loyal to fabulous Bien Thuy, but there's no doubt that Midtown's NAM has taken Vietnamese dining to a completely unprecedented level in our city. The decor - how do we put this? - celebrates the female form. The food is equally erotic, the kind of place that inspires critics to pore through a thesaurus and conduct a competitive orgy of adjectival gobbledygook. Don't-miss dishes include the "shaking filet mignon" and a striped bass whose presentation is virtually a ritual. You want that fish head soup, too. Really!

Vietnamese cuisine is showing signs of at long-last making inroads into Atlanta's mainstream dining scene. Problem is that most of these newcomers seriously compromise the authenticity of a cuisine whose elegant blend of French and Asian needs nothing altered to be appealing. So we remain completely loyal to Suzanne Bojtchewsky's BIEN THUY. The author of a couple of cookbooks, Suzanne often prepares off-the-menu dishes, so always inquire if the kitchen has anything special. If not, content yourself with the best noodle and pho dishes in town, rice-flour pancakes stuffed with seafood, lemongrass chicken, pork cooked in a hot pot and to-die-for spring rolls served with a mound of lettuce and herbs in which to wrap them.

We remain loyal to favorite BIEN THUY for pho and entrees like salted pork cooked in a hot pot, bun dishes and catfish stew with pineapple. Certainly not for the discount decor. Off-the-menu dishes are sometimes available and one of our favorite meals of all time is a dish the owner makes with giant oysters. Order a salted-plum soda or an off-the-menu "serene," a milky, mysterious shake. "5095 Buford Highway. 770-454-9046." less...

5095-F Buford Highway, Doraville 770-454-9046 Vietnamese pho houses reliably provide soups and noodle dishes with fast service and rock-bottom prices. Bien Thuy provides equally low costs and better meals in a quirkily cozy environment that includes pseudo Christmas decorations. Servers can be grumpy, but they're also quick and emphatic in warning Westerners of dishes they may not like. The spring rolls make a cool, colorful appetizer, while the savory chicken with ginger entree or the vermicelli dishes served with shredded vegetables and pork or chicken can make anyone a quick convert to the Vietnamese cause. less...

Cha Gio
Get the fried spring rolls (cha gio), maybe some soup and a cold beer. Appreciate the comfy ambience. The menu features noodles, rice, shrimp, chicken, basil leaves and sprouts — safely underseasoned and mostly familiar.

Viet kids, Caucasian connoisseurs and long-haired 'Nam vets hardly glance at the extensive menu. Instead, old hands merely mention favorite ingredients, allowing the chef to choose from the seasonal larder. For the uninitiated, cha gio (fried spring rolls) with lettuce wrappers, goi cuon (fresh basil rolls), pho (beef broth with noodles) and bun thit nuong (pork with rice noodles and salad) are touchstones of authenticity. Ca phe sua da (iced drip coffee with condensed milk) is a fast trip to Saigon. less...
