Pasteur

Arguments for getting your Vietnamese fix here instead of on Argyle: (1) The space is stunning, with chandeliers that look like atoms, dark leather banquettes and tropical plants evoking a French-colonized Vietnam. (2) When you’re served the banh xeo (Saigon crêpe), the friendly waiter will explain not only how to eat it, but its history. (3) That banh xeo is incredible. (4) The ca hong dam nuoc mam (whole red snapper) is so tender, so lightly fried, so flaky, you’ll pick at the bones like an alley cat. (5) The prices are pretty much the same as Tank Noodle’s. (6) There’s booze.

I dream of the fresh fish and the pho and the patio and the staff and the cocktails and the fact that it is a very chill luxury escape from the cityscape.


I've been going to thi restaurant for years. It's my favorite Vietnamese restaurant in the city. The quality and consistency of the food is superior and the tasteful decor makes for a great date or special occasion.


Imagine walking through the streets of a Vietnamese town, basking in the aromas of the intricate culture built upon by its food. Now extract that feeling as you're shopping in a top notch mall. Pasteur creates this environment of affordable Vietnamese food with a high-end dining experience. No matter your wallet size, you'll be wondering if you didn't bring enough money for this extravagant dining experience or if you brought too little to be at this incredible place.


Great food and experience overall! Was recommended this place by a friend and it was definitely delightful especially if you're craving Vietnamese food!


The décor of this upscale looking restaurant can fool one into thinking they need to be wealthy to come here but everything is affordable and you can even get the night ended(or started) at the bar!


Pasteur could not be more wonderful if it tried! From the moment you walk in, you feel like your in some sort of French Chateu. The atmosphere is only second to the food, which is fantastic! This is a great place to get a three course Vietnamese meal for a great price. The green tea banana dessert is not to be missed!
