Seattle Weekly's Description

Perched next to the I-5 overpass that divides the International District, Green Leaf delivers a quick meal that will fill you up. Across the board, the dishes are presented beautifully, and there's no scrimping on size. Regulars here are often fiercely loyal to their dish of choice, whether that's the pho (with perfectly spiced broth that some say is the city's best), the remarkably large vermicelli noodle bowls that teem with meat and veggies, or the Seven Special Courses of Beef for Two. I'm partial to the specialty fried-duck noodle soup, which comes with fresh veggies and egg noodles. Those in the know also revel in Green Leaf's hole-in-the-wall anonymity, touting it as a Tamarind Tree without the hype. If you can, try to get a table upstairs: The natural light and kitschy wagon-wheel benches make for a better environment than the dim, crowded-feeling dining room on the lower floor.
