Dalat Vietnamese Cuisine

940 S. Federal Blvd. Denver, CO 80219 | Southwest Denver | 303-935-4141

Location Description:

The kitchen at DaLat Vietnamese Cuisine is run by Ha Tran, a mother of five who infuses a home-cooked feel in every dish listed on the behemoth menu -- make that menus. This embarrassment of riches can make ordering a challenge, if only because there are so many dishes that beg for your attention. Still, while the pages go on...and on...and on, the seafood hot pot is always worth a stop, bubbling with perfectly cooked seafood, crisp vegetables and astringent Vietnamese basil. DaLat’s surroundings may be nothing special, but the food coming out of its kitchen definitely is.

Business Description

Ha opened DaLat in the summer of 2001. Customers soon flocked in from the sizzling sidewalk to try her creations. 10 years later, DaLat's burners are still fired up (on high), grilling, sauteing, and stir-frying perfection for the Mile High City. Ha gets her hands on every meal before it hits the table at DaLat. Made with love and fresh ingredients, DaLat treats the taste-buds. With all Ha's experience in the restaurant industry, 27 years to be exact, the food flies out of the kitchen and the service is uncannily friendly. Sit back and enjoy a Vietnamese coffee or 33 Export, while DaLat leads you through the traditional dishes of Vietnam
