Sochi Saigonese Kitchen

Vietnamese in Lakeview

    Perfect for
  • Casual Weeknight Dinner
  • Date Night

We first became fans of this Vietnamese restaurant in Lakeview after eating here on a 90-degree day. Sochi’s refreshing seared duck salad was exactly what we needed - the gỏi vịt was topped with tender breast underneath crispy skin, pickled daikon and carrots, and a perfect amount of mint, sweet and spicy ginger fish dressing. The menu also has bigger entrees like phở and cơm chiên, and a delicious bánh mì with an excellent ratio of pâté and pork loaf to crunchy bread. This place works for a catch-up dinner with friends or a casual date night, and while they don’t have patio seating, they do have plenty of garage-style windows to make the space feel airy and bright.
