This is a good, family driven restaurant. Food is authentic and tasty. The owner is polite and helpful, a bit stressed because of the many guests. We booked the vietnamese pho and seafood noodle, both typical vietnamese noodle soup dishes. Pho was good (we missed the oxtail flavour and some more beef slices). The seafood noodle was just ok.

...try Miss Saigon. The family-run restaurants (there is one in Pinecrest that is just as good) serve homemade Vietnamese fare. It is well prepared and consistent each time. Perhaps the best dish on the menus is the Miss Saigon rice noodles, which is a bowl full of light rice noodles with lots of boneless chicken and shrimp, plus pieces of... More

Let's cover the negatives first ... The service is not at all impressive, and the same can be said for the bathrooms. Yikes! It's the cuisine that saves the day! We found the offerings to be very interesting. Presentations were artful, and inviting. The quality of the meal was terrific. Flavorful, unique, and nicely proportioned. We will be back!

Came here based on Trip Advisor and Yelp comments. We were very disappointed with the quality of the food and the slow service. Food appeared and tasted inauthentic and perhaps adapted for local tastes. All of the servers and staff wore Vietnamese gowns although none of the were Asian. We ad the steamed snapper and chicken withe vegetables. Both tasted... More

We had just returned from Nicaragua where the food was wholesome but where meat and carbs often took precedence over fresh vegetables. We were dying for some good veggies. We walked the streets around our hotel perusing the menus and decided on Miss Saigon. So glad we did! The sweet and sour soup, which we shared as a starter, was... More

It had been a long time since my last Viet meal and I craved for spring rolls. I decided to order the "four seasons" It is an appetizer for two, but it was my whole meal. It has spring rolls, summer rolls, winter rolls, crispy rolls and beef leafs and vegetables and rice paper wrappers to roll your own. The... More

I first went here when they were smaller, had just opened. Rick the son of the owner and cook, (his mother is a great cook) was always there, and guided us through the menu, always surprising us with new things, when we essentially left it up to him to recommend. That spirit hasn't changed much, although I understand he now... More

It was definitely a discovery of the year for me! Was craving for good Vietnamese saw a sign and bingo,- it turned out the best Vietnamese food I ever had up to date. The menu is amazing and extensive. Usually it's pretty much Pho soup and few other basics. Not here, they do have a wonderful selection of all kind... More

Had been to this restaurant before for dinner and enjoyed it somehow.... my companion knew the owner, and the service and food was good - except the fish soup had way to many onions, too many onions, a piece of fish and broth. Then I made reservations for a business lunch and wow.... disappointing! The miss saigon rice, a specialty... More
