Vietnamese food is the ultimate health food because of its high vegetable and rice content. Aside from the health benefits, it's also delicious. Here you will find all sorts of Vietnamese delicacies like egg rolls, noodle soups, stuffed rice flour pancakes and Vietnamese Salad (lettuce, cilantro, lime wedges and sprouts rolled in rice paper with meat and seafood). Wash it all down with fresh juices and teas or iced coffee or imported beer.
Let's start with dessert. In fact, the staff here will serve your meal in any order you desire. The desserts are so good you could make a meal out of them alone. The Banana Pudding has the perfect consistency and comes with little vanilla wafers just like grandma makes. Fresh fruit pies and cobblers and three varieties of cheesecake will kill your diet in a single bite. Now for your meal, choose from delicious meat entrees like fried chicken, roast beef, country ham and fried catfish. Pair your meat with fresh vegetables, hot rolls and sweetened ice tea, and you're in for a real treat. No alcohol served. Cash only.
Bobbie's Dairy Dip offers authentic drive-in fare including delicious home-style burgers, hot-dogs, fries, onion rings, and amazing soft-serve ice cream. The burgers are all 100 percent Black Angus beef and the Holy Guacamole Burger is especially tasty. The ice cream is rich and creamy and available in vanilla or chocolate, dipped or undipped. With 10 percent dairy fat, it's a dieter's nightmare, but well worth it in flavor. Seating at Bobbie's is patio-style under a tin roof with a well-positioned ceiling fan. It's perfect for a drive-in, but limited, so most guests just order, wait and go.
Miss Saigon offers guests a wide selection of Vietnamese cuisine in a beautiful and relaxing environment. Their pho is hearty with a wonderful rich flavor and just the right amount of meat or seafood. The spicy beef soup is particularly good and not always available at other Vietnamese restaurants. While only a starter, the Vietnamese spring rolls are some of the best in town. They are light and flaky with just the right filling and best when dipped in chili oil. If you’re looking for a really, nice Vietnamese place with good food and good service, Miss Saigon is the only choice in town. -Lynn-nore Chittom

Sonobana Japanese Restaurant offers some of the most delicious sushi and Japanese cuisine in all of Nashville. The flavors are authentic, and the restaurant is lauded by Japanese nationals as the best in town. The sushi options are plentiful and popular, and the tempura entrées are simply delicious. The menu is designed with pictures of each dish to help the uneducated yet adventurous diner. The décor is primarily designed around Western-style seating, but Sonobana also has two tatami mat rooms with Japanese-style floor seating situated around a low table. The sushi is very affordable, and many guests come just for the sushi bar. - Lynn-nore Chittom
