Green Leaf Vietnamese Restaurant
Green Leaf Vietnamese Restaurant Review
Locals pack this friendly café for the expansive menu of fresh, well-prepared Vietnamese staples. The quality of the food—the spring rolls, báhn xèo (the Vietnamese version of an omelet), and lemongrass chicken are just a few standouts—and reasonable prices would be enough to make it an instant I.D. favorite. But Green Leaf also proves you don't have to sacrifice ambience to get cheap, authentic Asian food in Seattle: you'll find bamboo embellishments on lighting fixtures, tables, and chairs; and instead of glaring fluorescents, there is dim mood lighting in the evening. The staff greets everyone as though they're regulars—and there are plenty of regulars, enough to fill the small space. If it's packed, try consider the newer Belltown branch, a large space with a full bar and late-night hours, at 2800 First Ave.
