This is a must visit whenever I am in Peoria! The food and service are excellent! Our family cannot get enough of the Pho Tai (Beef Noodle Soup)

Few of my friends suggested to try the lunch buffet here. Me with my colleges went to taste the Asian flavors from this restaurant.... It was good when we entered and passed through the main dinning room.. The real night mare was when we entered the buffet hall... We all were smelling a stinky odor probably it should have been...

The curry fried rice with vegetables or chicken is the best I ever had any vietnamese restaurant. I was a student of bradley university back in 2006 and I had countless lunches and dinners here. I would definitely stop by this place whenever I visit Peoria.

This is the second time that we have tried this restaurant while passing thru Peoria. Just like the first time we enjoyed the buffet.

Two of our friends like to go there for the dinner buffet. Why you ask? Me too. I can't stand the food on the buffet. It is often cold and it looks like a baby manufactured it. Oh yeah, and it all tastes the same. When we were last there in August my wife and I ordered off of the... More

Went for the lunch buffet and they ran out of food before I was done and did not reload the trays. The food was great but the service had a little to be desired.

The food is really good, the atmosphere is kind of cold but a good place to eat for the money. I really liked the drunken noodles

We went for lunch and enjoyed the buffet. The restaurant is very modernized inside. Don't let the outside fool you. Nice and clean atmosphere. The bathroom could use a good cleaning,but the restaurant itself was good. There were a lot of options on the buffet. Good to try different things. The price is very responsible. We ordered the lime iced... More

A real winner! They have a lunch and dinner buffet (which I don't usually like) but this place is different. The buffets are really great - lots of choices for meat eaters and non meat eaters. Although I haven't ordered off the menu, plenty of choices and the entrees we saw other diners receiving were great portion sizes and looked... More

The fried rice is the best in town. The portions are large in comparison to other similar restaurants, and the price is very reasonable. The Saturday Soup lunch special is a hit with us also. Take out or sit down are both available.
