Vietopia Vietnamese Cuisine

Robert Z. Easley
In spite of its strip-center location in West University, this Vietnamese spot ranks right up there with the best of the trendy Asian infusion palaces. With a sweeping, multilayered patio and curvy two-story interior sporting slow-moving ceiling fans made of palm fronds, Vietopia stands out before you even take a bite. The best deals are found at lunch, when a blanket fee gets you any number of rice, vermicelli or noodle-soup bowls, as well as several shrimp, beef and chicken entreés. All are good. At night, the elegant decor is enhanced with soft lights and a menu that includes lobster, duck, crab and prawns.
