BEWARE! Make sure you get what you paid for! They are dishonest! The manager would not correct our order even though it was wrong. They ran out of one of the key meat ingredients in our togo order and instead of letting me know while

Not only was I not thrilled about the food, they over charged me like 4 times more than what I should pay. This is not how a restaurant should run!! What a rip off :/

Good food at a good price. I go there often for lunch, and it's always consistent. A little noisy sometimes, there's always kids playing around don't mind the giggling but they play video games sometimes it gets loud.

This is the worst Pho I've had in a long time. We wanted to try this place instead of our usual Vietnamese spot and were sorely disappointed. Also, they don't even serve Bahn Mi (a must in my eyes for a Vietnamese restaurant). Don't go here. If you want delicious Vietnamese food, traverse across the street to Green Basil.

I've eaten at so many different Thai restaurants and this is by far the best. The restaurant is very clean and the people are pleasant and friendly. The food was excellent !!! It was so wonderful to have all the different fresh vegetables in my panang curry. We also ordered the basil fish, Pad Thai, so good ! We were scraping the plates. The food tasted fresh and was cooked to perfection. The desserts were even more delicious. We had the Fried Banana with Coconut Ice Cream and the Sweet rice with Coconut Ice Cream. Best I've ever had ! Our kids loved it and we won't go anywhere else again when we want some ' real ' good Thai food. Presentation was also very nice.

We have tried just about all the Thai restaurants in the Raleigh and this little jem is the best there is. The food is consistently outstanding. The curries (especially Panang Gai ) are light and flavorful. Spice level is conveniently based on stars ( we get our curry with three stars and as spicy as we like it without searing your tastebuds numb ). Stirfries are excellent ( best Thai basil chicken--- not too sweet--- than any restaurant from Raleigh and their noodle dishes are also delicious. Try the Pad Kee Mao or Pad Se Ew-- they are all very good. This restaurant is exceptional because everything we've tried is what I call a" repeeat " because I would gladly order it again and again. The service is always very fast and friendly. Its humble atmosphere just adds to the absolutely no pretention. Just great food and equally great service !!

Lavie is the best Thai restaurant I've found in over six years of living in the city. Everything is prepared to delight your eyes as well as your plate. Their Tom Yum Gai soup is tinglingly spicy and full of tender, carefully deveined shrimp, and their main dishes use superior quality meats and vegetables presented beautifully. Standouts include a salmon with pannang curry, Their lunch specials include Vietnamese style summer rolls,and rice with your choice of entree and are too big for most people to finish. Spicy usually really means spicy here, so request it only if you mean it. I am really shocked by the bag review I found here--it actually inspired me to write in and share my many positive experriences I've had eating here or bringing food home. It's the cleanest tasting, most artfully executed and best Thai food I've had in Raleigh. I've been to many Thai places in city, but Lavie is fantastic and consistent. Judging by the masse of people who've also found this place and have made it so popular for dining in and takeout. I'm not alone.

Pros: Innovative, delightful food, war and attentive service; if you love hot food you can really get it here

Cons: It's small space

Another restaurant in the area trying to be everybody. Thai/Vietnamese/Sushi??? I went there with several clients (not my choice). I ordered a Pad Thai and the waiter is pushing a sell on their sushi. The Pad thai tasted like ketchup and rice noodle and the sushi looks like half cooked. Not going back there again even it is free.

I work next door to La Vie and have been eating lunch there for about 1-2 years now. I've found their service to be responsive and their food very good. They're definitely not a 5 star restaurant with mood lighting and soft pastels on the wall, but if you want good and quick thai/vietnamese food, they're one of the best.

Very unusual for me to spend time writing a review, but our recent experience here was so god-awful I decided to share it. Sat for 21 minutes before someone even offered water - no embellishment. A party of of four next to us with children got up and left without getting served. Spring rolls, recommended by others, were bland and slightly soggy. Beer was room temperature, ok if you're from UK...worst foul was the very fatty chicken, like a cheap Chinese restaurant, and the meals were all cool - left us asking what's the 9.5 for...? Say la vie and look elsewhere for authentic Thai or Vietnamese food in the triangle. Instead had a great (excellent Japanese food!) at Waraji.

I went twice, once with friends, 2nd time my wife wanted to try it. Ordered Panang Curry first time. I thought it was horrible, no flavor. Soup was bland. Tried another Curry dish and it was bad as well. My firends didn't dislike it, but my wife agrees with me and doesn't want to go back. Many better restaurants in area if you want Thai food. Im sure the service was friendly and ok, but I really don't remember.

BEST Tofu I have ever had (lived all over U.S. and Japan) - crisp, not 'eggy' delicious marinade. Clean, affordable, VERY healthy. I have wasted much time and food trying to replicate their dishes at home. Try thier Mussuman curry, fresh spring rolls, Evil Jungle Prince. Their rich coffee comes with sweetened milk. I have 10 different kinds of peanut sauce at home... theirs is the the best and if I could, I would buy it to take home!

I had the Pad Thai, which was delicious and contained six medium sized shrimp and my husband had the Green Curry with chicken. I selected "spicy" which was actually fairly mild, my husband chose just one category up - "extra spicy", he enjoyed it but it was way too hot for me. In addition, we had the coconut soup w/ chicken (Excellent!) and fresh spring rolls that were so fresh, you would swear the ingredients were just picked from the garden. Service was attentive and efficient. I would highly recommend this restaurant for tasty, affordable (two lunch entrees and two appetizers just under $25 including tip), Thai food. Next time, I want to try the Vietnamese cuisine.

This is a great retreat from the workaday world.
The staff are friendly and the Thai specials are a great value. I also enjoy the Thai MTV shows.
I especially like the Thai curries.

LVie used to be called Que Wong (or something like that). The difference is better decorations and a sushi bar. I have not tried the sushi, but I do eat thai there, and the food is getting better each time I go. They now understand what the customer means by very mild, mild, medium, or hot -- but you have to tell them what you want. The tom kai is excellent, spring rolls are OK, but do not have shrimp., the pad thai is excellent (but they need to take shrimptails off), green cury is good also. The vietnamees soups look good, the chineese is not too good. They are located in a competitive area for thai, but I get by there a few times each month.

My husband and I are new to Raleigh, and I was needing good Thia badly! We found La Vie on the web and decided to give it a whirl. We drove up, found it in a strip mall-ish sort of area, and debated about going in. We did, and what a surprise! The restaurant was lovely and quiet, not too croweded. The food was wonderful! And they have sushi!! We are huge fans of the food-the green curry with squid is yummy-and even when the restaurant gets crowded, it's still quiet and had great atmosphere!

La Vie was a really great place. It has a nice atmosphere and lots of fancy decorations. Besides having the same cuisines as Que Huong, there was nothing visual that reminded me that it was Que Huong. But there is another plus to La Vie. They have SUSHI. =) I really like sushi and have not found any other place that has such delicious and affordable sushi. The price range on the Vietnamese and Thai food was also very reasonable. The staff were very pleasent and has the ability to stay pleasent when it comes to serving a full house. Since I have been to La Vie a few times when it has been really crowded from time to time, the staff has been able to get my food to me with ease. It is truely an experience you will not want to miss.

I've been several times to try various Thai & Vietnamese dishes. The Thai Curry wasn't impressive; it lacked a sweet note, although the spicy was pleasant. I won't eat it again. The general 'stir-fry' type dishes are ok, but are missing the gentle complexity I'm accustomed to in SE Asian food. I will stick to these dishes if I go back. The fresh spring rolls were not as delicate and refreshing as most- the onion flavor was too prominent... something I'll skip next time I'm there. The meal portions were small, which was quaint, but doesn't suit the typical American's belly. Some of my friends love their food, some don't. I hesitantly recommend trying it - you may like it!

Every time I have been here I have had great food and wonderful service. My favs are the coconut soup and coconut juice. Yes, I do love coconut, but I'd suggest just trying the soup.

The prices are just right too, especially for a broke college student like me!

Both visits were the same. The first found us there an hour before closing yet we were rushed throughout the time we gobbled our muddled Asian meals. Chinese vegetables in the Thai dishes?? And apparently soups are served at room temperature after 9:00. The next trip I debated which spring rolls (Thai or Vietnamese) I actually ordered with a teenage server. It's written on their own menu which is which--IN TWO LANGUAGES EACH! I even pointed!!! Geez! The tom kha was warm this time but contained mostly white mushrooms, although I did find a woody piece of galangal in the bottom. To be fair, the tofu sa-teh was tasty as was the spicy panang. But why not use Thai vegetables in a Thai dish like panang? From now on, it's Sawasdee for Thai and Pho Cali for Vietnamese. At least I get what I order and it's usually hot...

You really can't use the expression, "A hidden treasure", until you've tried this restaurant. I brought a group of 8 here for a birthday party and couldn't of had a better experience. This restaurant serves Chinese, Thai, and Vietnamese food. All of it is flavored wonderfully. I'm more partial to the Thai items.

Check out their daily specials too! What a bargain.
