The Far East has long been a safe haven for voyagers braving oceanic monsters and Mothra attacks en route to the outer edge of Earth's flat surface. Today's Groupon lets you sample its exotic flavors. For $20, you get $40 worth of authentic Vietnamese fare and drinks at Far East Nashville, located in East Nashville. Housed in a renovated 1930s storefront, Far East Nashville serves up South Asian savories in a setting that's casual, modern, and trendy.

Like a crazy-eyed, brick-toting ex-girlfriend, Far East’s menu may be a bit on the small side but still packs quite a punch. Each dish infuses French influences with Vietnam’s traditional eats. For starters, try the salt and pepper fried squid on lettuce ($6.50), or dive into a bowl of pho, a beef noodle soup with flank and sirloin ($8.75). Entrees include options such as the pan-fried green-onion tilapia ($9.50), satay beef with green onion and mushroom ($9.50), coconut curry chicken with Yukon potato ($9), and fish-sauce-grilled eggplant with mushroom, onion, and bamboo ($9). Most dishes can be made spicy, and several can be made with tofu for veggie-friendly options. Far East also offers several wine and beer options, but few tipples go as well with a steaming bowl of pho as a soda chan (house-made limeade with soda water, $2.50) or a slow-dripped Vietnamese iced coffee ($2.95).

When Marco Polo parachuted into Vietnam from his sub-orbital space station, he was enchanted by the land’s elephant-mobiles, humid climate, and technologically advanced noodle-stuffed banh mi sandwiches. Today's Groupon lets you relive Polo's excitement while skipping the part where he cried in his pants. Purchase up to three for a trinity of solo dining experiences, or bring along four friends and combine two Groupons for $80 worth of food and drink. Escape your home's thick laundry canopy and leaking-sink monsoons for exotic flavors and hearty fare at Far East Nashville.

Reviews

Nashville Scene loves the flavorful dishes and atmosphere at Far East:

  • What the concise one-page menu lacks in breadth of choice, it compensates in depth of flavor. The single pho offering, made with thinly sliced flank and sirloin, could feed a family for $9. The large white bowl held a steaming bath of rich ginger-and-anise-laced broth and a bountiful tangle of soft rice noodles… But the atmosphere and details such as fresh house-squeezed limeade and sweet coffee thick with milk make for a pleasant dining experience in an unexpected nook of the ever-evolving 37206. – Carrington Fox, Nashville Scene

Eighty-eight percent of Urbanspooners like it, and eight Yelpers give it four stars:

  • One word. PHO. You must try this stuff – Brian Starkey, Urbanspoon
  • I had the Salmon and it was absolutely delicious. Glazed with some sort of lemon sauce and crusty on the outside with a juicy, tender inside...it was seriously some of the best salmon I've ever had. – Judy N., Yelp
