Have only had the rare beef pho here, but it is very good (not sure if it's authentic, but great none the less. I also very good if you use dine-in CT and have it delivered.

Great, authentic Vietnamese food with awesome Pho that everyone in my family craves, luckily we live nearby. Summer rolls and everything else really has been superb. Highly recommended.

We ordered the Pad Thai noodle dish and specified no nuts. However, the Pad Thai sauce apparently has nuts in them and caused an allergic reaction to one of our family member. The waitress who served us did not take our peanut allergy seriously. (She is a new waitress and not the usual lady who served us) I questioned her... More

Although the setting is modest, the food experience is unforgettable. Very authentic home style Vietnamese cuisine at affordable prices. The pho is tasty and plentiful. the shaken beef well seasoned and filling. The service is excellent and you are well taken care of. We go there for both business lunches and family dinners.

Whether you do carry out or eat there, the food is great and reasonable! We like the crispy spring rolls, pho, salt and pepper shrimp, steamed fish, bun, and many other dishes. Byob.

Here is "hole-in- the -wall" tiny place that has SUPERB Thia food! It is cooked when you order- so everything is fresh, steaming and soooooooooooo tasty! You bring your own wine if desired. Inexpensive and wonderful!

Thanks to a Dear Vietnamese friend of mine, I know what good Vietnamese food is. I was delighted , when I was visiting Farmington, CT with my Sister in Law, to find a Vietnamese Restaurant when lunch time approached us. Lotus Grill is a small restaurant with wonderfully fresh food. We had the spring rolls and then shared Pad Thai,... More

My husband and I live fairly close by, but never knew about this place. We had been going to Pho Boston for a couple years now and it's a little bit of a pain to get to, so when we found out they served Pho (soup) we were beyond excited. The building looks a little run down and when you... More

Small. Cosy. Homey. Friendly staff. Delicious Sotheast Asia food, like Pad Thai, steamy Pho bowls (soup with a protein, noodles and vegetables - a filling meal that is good for a cold and rainy day), and rice dishes. Clean flavors which always delight. A litttle hole in the wall that is highly recommended.

We usually stop by for a light dinner of soup and appetizer after a large lunch. The food is fresh and very tasty and reasonably priced.
