This place is not Vietnamese food, it is some cub food Thai brand noodles with hot water poured over, a couple of shrimp and some dry chicken breast cut into strips. Honestly, I have spent much more money at restaurants before and have been completely satisfied, but today's meal with my pregnant wife has been horrendous. I forced myself to finish my meal as a way of being polite, part of my policy, but my wife even refused to eat a quarter of it. Two small bowls of really bad pho and two below average spring rolls all for about 43 bucks. I can spend half of that for twice the amount of food in the cities. I refused to tip and refused to even talk to the man and his waitress after seeing what I was going to have to pay for. It was really empty in there and and deservedly so. This place is giving Vietnamese food a bad name, but I guess it is owned by a white man and his half-blood wife so what can you say? If anyone ever goes to Duluth and wants to spend 50 dollars for lunch, go somewhere fancy where you will truly enjoy the meal. This place for fifty bucks will give you a tummy ache worst than any taco bell from a ghetto neighborhood ever will. No Stars, Horrible food. Only white people from Duluth will eat here since they don't know any better. And the owner keeps reposting after a post to make his dumb rating go up.

I am an international businessman who visiting Puglisi's Gun emporium and noticed a nearby Vietnamese restaurant. My family is of Lao/Vietnamese ancestry and Pho is one of our favorite foods. So sorry to say that the food left us so very disappointed. There was no fresh basil or mint for the Pho and the price was outrageous for what we received. The Vietnamese owner could not even look at us and hid in the kitchen. We want them to succeed but they are going to have to work hard if they are going to even come close to offering true Vietnamese cuisine. They should get authentic ingredients and not be scared to serve true Vietnamese food instead of the poor imitations they are serving now. I can afford any restaurant but I do not like being taken advantage of; I left this restaurant feeling cheated:(
This is the only place around to get Pho and I go out of my way to come here for it. Granted, I have never been to Vietnam, so I can t comment on the authenticity, but it is dang tasty. My boyfriend loves this place and he gets some other dishes and they have all been great. Wonderful place that is always open whenever I drive by. People are friendly and the place is clean. I highly recommend it.
I'll be honest, when I saw a Vietnamese restaurant coming here to Gary, I didn't expect it to last long. However, upon my first visit, I was instantly convinced otherwise. Everything I've tried there has been perfect, absolutely no complaints there. The only thing that MIGHT detract from the dining experience is the lack of air conditioning. I'm not sure if they have since replaced the system, however, so you may want to check with the staff. Even then, once you get your delectable cuisine the air temperature will matter not. If you have a craving for an excellent meal that is out of the ordinary, The Vietnamese Lotus Inn should be your first choice.
Ever since my first dining experience at The Lotus Inn in New Gary (West Duluth), I haven't been able to eat Chinese/Vietnamese food anywhere else. Everything is cooked just right, the seasoning and spices are balanced to perfection, and the service is small-town friendly - the owner will often pop by your table for a brief, unintrusive chat as you dine, and he is not above filling your water glass himself.
Since the restaurant is located just outside of Duluth proper (a short jaunt off I-35), you never have to wait for a table and, while there are always customers dining in, it's never so busy that you feel crowded or rushed. Also, you can carry-out your food, or (within a limited area) have it delivered.
As a small business, the restaurant relies almost exclusively on word-of-mouth for business growth, so if you pop in and love it (as you surely will), do make sure to tell your friends (or write up a review online).
Recommendation: Try the tofu lo mein, medium spice. Seriously. It's fabulicious. Yes, it's so good, it requires the invention of a new word just to describe it.
