Favori has been ranked among the best Vietnamese restaurants for years. And O know why! A French-inspired Vietnamese menu covers everything from tasty Vietnamese shrp and bean sprout crepes to rare beef and shrimp marinated in lime sauce (amazing!). Spring rolls, and salad rolls with peanut sauce are great! Of course, catfish is a party on a platter! Highly recommended... More

Cá nướng mở hành is better than i expected! I like it though i am not a "fish" person! Service is good & fast! Hot pot & steak look yummy too! I'll try them next time!

It's a Vietnamese/French restaurant, but don't let it scare you away. For lunch, it's quick and awesome. My boss and I usually get the Combo #2, which is 3 fried egg rolls 4 little shrimps A kind of angel hair pasta 2 pork balls (they look like sausage patties but YUMMIER!) It WILL fill you up! Another thing they have... More

I have been eating here for years. The catfish is my favorite fish dish in OC.

My sister & brother in law took us there for lunch on our wedding anniversary. It's at least half an hour drive to get there, but the dining experience was worth it. We ordered a hot pot with assorted seafoods. It came served with vegetables and vermicelli noodles. The broth was so tasty, and the variety of seafoods (shrimp, clams,... More

This is the place to visit if you like to have a baked catfish they will make you work for this dish, the fish is baked to perfection but you have to do lot of work. Lot of vegetable and you have to use the rice paper (soften in water) to roll the fish, vegetable and other stuffs in. Deep... More

Have been there 3 times during visits to Little Saigon. Food is above average, especially the fish since that is what they are known for. The ambience inside is romantic with dim lighting, the servers for the most part were friendly. The problem I have is outside the restaurant. I am (or I was) a smoker. Stepped out to have... More

The food is good but the service sucks. I have gone there four times in the past months just for the food, and all of the time the cashier is rude to us. On weekends we do get some nice waiters but because they are packed and booked more reservations than they have tables for, the waiters would always rush... More
