I have eaten lunch here twice and both times my food was overly sweet, not very hot, and not impressive at all. The first time I had a Vietnamese dish, and I was disappointed so I thought maybe I ordered the wrong thing. The second time I ordered what seemed to be a more Chinese fusion dish, and it gave...

When we are in the mood for good Asian food at a reasonable price, we don't have to wonder where to go - Young's is the place. Great food, great drinks, not expensive and a really wonderful staff. It's a little hard to find but, hey, isn't that what GPS is for? Don't miss this place.

Young's Café is one of the oldest restaurants in Fort Collins; and this is due to consistent above average food choices. Don't miss their bowls - noodles, vegetables, and meat - for a filling and refreshing lunch. The lemon grass sauce goes well with chicken, vegetarian, or seafood. Duck roti, roasted to perfection, is a great choice. For the ultimate... More

Based on its excellent reputation, we ate at Young's on a week night when visiting Fort Collins from out of state. It is fairly large, had lots of customers, so our experience must not be typical. The garlic eggplant had lots of veggies besides the eggplant (good), but the small slices of eggplant were lost in very thick breading (bad).... More

Seriously .... Bad. We love Vietnamese cuisine and rely on TripAdvisor to find great places. This makes me wonder if this restaurant paid people to post good reviews. We ordered the crystal spring rolls that were flavorless and chewy .... Yes, chewy. It was like they were three days old. We also got the soft shell crab appetizer that was... More

I first went to Young's over 15 years ago when in town on business, and thought it was excellent. Upon our recent return I found that they had succumbed to a bit of the current "Asian Fusion" influence, but the true Vietnamese dishes are as good as ever. The fried Spring Rolls are meaty, and tasty, and just like you... More

We were passing through Fort Collins and stopped at Young's Café for dinner. We ordered Flaming Soup, Basil Seafood, and Basil Eggplant with Shrimp. Soup was very good and the other two dishes were decent, but a little too heavy on the sauce for our taste. Service was attentive and the place is clean.

I've been going to Young's since it opened. It is terrific. I've never had a bad meal and the service has always been great. As others have mentioned, the lunch bowls are great I do really like the chicken or tofu bowls and super bowls, but so are the more normal lunch special meals. From the dinner menu some of... More

Great food and service - both of which are very consistent each time we visit! I haven't had a bad meal here but I really do enjoy the calamari appetizer with the sweet/tangy sauce that they include with it. Yum!
