Nam Phuong


This Philadelphia import is much more complex than the average Vietnamese restaurant but is still inexpensive enough for dining on a budget. For something fun and novel, try the house specialty, Ba Vi, which translates as Three Delights. It consists of a platter of stuffed grape leaves, pork strips (a cross between meatballs and sausage), shrimp grilled on sugarcane skewers, vermicelli, and herbs, with a stack of rice paper for wrapping. The Norcross restaurant is located at the latest epicenter of Vietnamese culture, in the same shopping complex as Hong Kong Supermarket. A second outpost opened in 2011 on Buford Highway with a smaller menu but the same level of sophistication.
5495 Jimmy Carter Boulevard, Norcross, 770-409-8686; 4051 Buford Highway, 404-633-2400,

    The banh mi is exceptional as are most dishes at this restaurant. The Vietnamese food is a must to try if you have not experienced it before.

    The owners are incredibly nice and hardworking. It shows, because the food is delicious and made with plenty of love.
    There are tow locations but I think I prefer the Buford Hwy one because there recently added Thai selections to the menu that are yum yum 😀

    By far the best Vietnamese in Georgia. The Shaking beef is exceptional and you must try the pho on a chilly day. Don’t be afraid to explore the expansive menu.
