We made our first visit to Yen Ha tonight, but it won't be our last. We were talking about what to try next before we left.

We tried two different shrimp dishes, and one beef. All were fresh and well presented, and one appetizer and two

Out of all the Vietnamese restaurants in Portland, this is the only surviving one that serves lots of traditional dishes, dishes you could find in Vietnam. (Not all the food in Vietnam is Pho lol).

Menu: Extensive. Tons of great dishes, some more exotic than others. Menu isn't your typical Pho, Bun Bo Hue, Rice plate etc. The restaurant has dishes that are very time consuming to cook/prepare thus none of the other restaurants want to make it.

Service: Very friendly. We had some Shirley Temple delivered to us on the house. How's that for service? Never caught our waiter's name but he was very attentive and was genuinely enthusiastic about the food he served us. He took the time to check on us several times and make sure we had enough water and tea.

Food: Delicious. We had pepper salted calamari and fried fish with ginger sauce. The calamari had a very nice aroma to it. It was fried perfectly, taste was fantastic though. It had sauted onions and my gf and I don't usually eat the onions at other places but this one looked and smelled so good we actually ate it after we cleaned the dish of all the calamari. The fried fish was great. It had a choice of two type of sauce, one was the ginger fish sauce and I forgot what the other one was. Nice and crispy with a great presentation on a bed of lettuce leaves and garnished with tomatoes and cucumbers.

We would definitely eat here more often if it wasn't for such a long drive for us. Great little restaurant on Sandy, great service, and great food. We'll be back for seconds on the calamari =)

Pros: Best pepper salted calamari

Cons: Wish it was closer to clackamas

I think the best thing about this place is the karaoke. They have a lively crowd and the place is not overly crowded. The food was good if you like vietnamese food. Check it out!

Pros: SELECTION AND VALUE!

Cons: ITS NOT SWANKY BUT RETRO AND ALL ABOUT THE FOOD

My boyfriend and I are very centralized and rarely leave our hawthorn area neighborhood, but this restaurant is worth the trip. I have a constant craving for Vietnamese food and have tried many places closer to my close-in SE home but Yen Ha is by far the best.

They have a little bit of everything at Yen Ha. The location is great and the setting is fantastic. If you have no idea if you like Vietnamese food then you will be impressed with Yen Ha.

Being Vietnamese myself, I've yet to find a place that can beat the authentic food at Yen Ha. I'm a frequent customer at the place and I strongly recommend it. The Mongolian beef rolled in rice paper, fresh vegetables dipped in special sauce is my favorite! They even have a lounge next door, which is a pretty cool place to hang out on the weekends.

Cons: Crowded, Odd waiter

A very extensive menu with great prices. Unfortunately, French Style Cubed Beef - a staple on a Vietnamese Chinese menu - is missing. The shrimp/pork appetizer was filling, but a bit too salty. The beef with wine sauce, pork fried rice, Vietnamese eggrolls, and fried fish were all decent. If you like exotic fruits try their yummy jackfruit shake. The eccentric waiter is amusing at first, but his act gets tiresome very fast.

Been to Yen Ha numerous times.... Love the food. Their wonton soup is great. Also their calamari... Noodles are always good too. Love their hot pot rice. There are some weird stuff there that I wouldn't try but overall this place is wonderful.
