Minh Hai Restaurant was opened in the fall of 2005 by Minh and his brother Hai.   Although there are many wonderful local Asian restaurants, Minh Hai is one of the few restaurants focusing only on authentic Vietnamese cuisine.
 
When you enter Minh Hai you will be greeted and served by Minh himself, Jennifer his wife, or by one of his daughters Tiffany, or Lien.  Whether it is your first time eating Vietnamese food or you are looking to try something new or different, the entire Huynh family is on hand to help walk you through the menu, and guarantee that youenjoy your dining experience.
 
In traditional Vietnamese food you will find a diverse range of herbs, including lemongrass, mint, long coriander and Thai basil leaves. Vietnamese cooking is greatly admired for its fresh ingredients, minimal use of oil, and heavy reliance on herbs and vegetables. There is also a strong vegetarian tradition influenced by Buddhist values.
 
We offer many dishes to explore.  We offer over 10 varieties of PHO, a traditional noodle available made with a chicken or seafood broth. GOI CUON (fresh shrimp or tofu rolls, also known as summer rolls), these rice paper skins, contain shrimp or tofu with, vermicelli, bean sprouts, lettuce, and cilantro and are served at room temperature with a thick peanut sauce for dipping. The Bo Tai Chanh is one of our most popular appetizers. Thinly sliced rare Beef is marinated in lemon dressing, topped with mint leaves, roasted peanuts, onions and sesame seeds served with a dipping sauce of crunchy pickled carrots, slivers of daikon, celery, cilantro, and mint leaves.  We offer have numerous chicken, beef, pork, seafood, vegetable dishes and many styles of Vietnamese noodles and rice dishes.
 
We are open 6 days a week for lunch and dinner.  We encourage you to join us for a casual lunch or dinner.  For groups of 8 or more we would prefer if you would call ahead.
 
You are always encouraged to bring in your favorite beer or wine to enjoy with your meal.
