this restaurant moved awhile back but haven't been in that area at lunch. well today my wife and i were and went for a late lunch at 2pm. The waitress Tiffany remembered us from a long time past and was glad to see us. The new location is larger with some nice decorations but they brought the same giant map... More

Love the new location. So glad they didn't leave the neighborhood. It's hard to find good Vietnamese food in Palm Beach County.

Pho was Ok, noodles were good but with very little meat. Service was bad. Upon arrival I asked for a couple of limes for our water and was told there for the soup only. Wow, what a bad first impression! So I brushed it off. Then my order came out totally wrong and the server did the bare minimum to... More

I've been here twice. Staff is very nice. Pho not as great the second time but pretty good. Bubble tea very nice. Food is fresh. I'll come back again.

Recently moved from rather dismal quarters on US1, the restaurant is now bright and airy. My wife and I stuck with our favorites: Hue pho for me, papaya salad with tofu and shrimp for her. All the appetizers are tasty. Not for the uninitiated in Vietnamese food unless you go with a knowledgable person.

WE were headed to a different restaurant which was closed. Saw the sign for VEC at this very plain strip-mall; I was prepared to look inside and then leave (expecting an order at the counter fast food faux Asian yuck place). Saw it was a "sit-down" so we decided to try it. We are not Vietnamese foodies so cannot compare... More

This place is one of my absolute favorites. Some of the best Pho I have had, as well as excellent spring rolls, lettuce wraps, and rice noodle salad. The Bahn Mi sandwich is also a must-try. The ingredients taste fresh and the food is not greasy or heavy. It's also a reasonable priced, and the ambiance of the new location... More

Can't get enough of the pho and steep iced coffee with condensed milk. So good, I came home passed out in food comma. Also been working full 12 days straight. A good ending of hard work week. Enjoy your meal.

It was harder to find than we expected being a little further west from the intersection with US1 than the web site implied. But we got there.... It is situated in a rather nondescript plaza which did not augur well. When we entered though we found it still fairly busy (and we had arrived for a late dinner - at... More
