Vietnamese, Thai, with plenty to choose from

This excellent, informal, low-priced restaurant offers an exhaustive selection of both Vietnamese and Thai dishes. Portions are large; service is friendly and casual. Good selection of beer in bottles and on tap. A very pleasant, not too noisy choice.

Hands down, best Vietnamese in Austin area. My husband and I ate here almost weekly for the entire two years we spent in Austin. We did take out and dine, brought family and friends, no one was ever disappointed. They have a huge menu suitable for all diet types. Beware- the take out menu is half the size of the... More

Not far down East Oltorf from I-35. I stopped in for carry out and the place was hopping. No need to worry about fresh here. Offers a wide variety of Southeast Asian centered dishes. The Pho is wonderful, I enjoyed my Thai Curry Red Fish and my partner the good old standby Pad Thai. Given the noise levels this is... More

I'm so glad I stopped. They were having AC problems (a freak thing apparently) and it was well over a 100 degrees that day, but the food was so great I didnt notice the heat and that says a lot. I'll be back every time I come to Austin!

I love asian food, and I've never been impressed with this place. They have a decent buffet, but the food is completely average.

For a really good pho, broth is key. And the pho tai chin, was very yummy. To the last drop, literally. After a long day of festival, I was craving a really good bowl of pho. My bro, took me here at 930. Open late night, the place was packed, there were even police officers eating, in the corner. We... More

When I first moved to the Austin area from Houston, one of the things I worried about was leaving a great food town that had a great variety of cuisine to choose from. Having a noodle hankering I discovered this restaurant and tried it out. The quality of their food and dishes are excellent. The price is also more than... More

My friends live close by. I'm visiting from out of town and asked for some good Asian food. They took me to 888. Wow! I was NOT disappointed! I ordered the Crispy Pad Thai. It was ON POINT! I ate until I was full and then wanted to keep eating but while my lips said "yes" my belly said "no!".... More

This was my first visit to 888. It was highly recommended by a friend. Now, when it comes to Asian food I'm very picky so my expectations were not real high. I ordered the Chicken Cashew. The serving size is large. It was a delicious, spicy dish so I was pleasantly surprised. The chicken ratio was way too low in... More
