Excellent lunch buffet and soups

This restaurant has small but superb lunch buffet. Food is always fresh and very tasty. Reasonably priced. Even though it is always a busy place at lunch time it is worth waiting a few minutes in line to go in. It has been featured in local TV news, and won some awards in Taste of Peoria food fair... read more

I eat the lunch buffet all the time! For around $8, you can eat great food and fast! They make full flavored dishes identical to if you order it from their menu; the seasonings are not dulled down to please the masses like most buffets. The numerous dishes offered on the buffet are a little different every day but always... More

The chicken eggrolls are amazing!!! You could order just a plate of them and be a very happy camper. Their buffet lunch and dinner is also very good (and has the eggrolls). Must try!!

Stopped in for lunch during posted buffet hours with 1/2 hour to go. Staff advised me that they had already stopped stocking the food and there wasn't much left. Points for at least telling me before I was seated. Ordered off the menu. Food was OK but nothing special.

Wonderful choice for Vietnamese food. From Hawaii and we have many great Vietnamese dining spots. Thanh Linh however amazed but offering incredible quality and food excellence. Portions border on being almost too much but made for a great excuse to enjoy some "take home". The staff was very friendly and offered great service. spring rolls were a perfect starter. one...

This is a review of lunch. They are set up for high volume fast turnaround buffet service at a modest $7.95. Ordering from menu took too long but was delivered quickly. Many vegetarian options on the menu; we did not try any. Pho did not have requisite depth of flavor and proteins were low quality.

Thanh Linh is by far our favorite restaurant in Central Illinois! I do not think you will be disappointed in anything on their menu. Keep in mind though that our review is only based on the Vegetarian choices as they are willing to leave the meat out of practically any dish. In our humble opinion it is the best Asian... More

Freshly squeezed lime drink was amazing. I followed that up with the Shrimp & Pork Spring Rolls app. For my main course I ordered the Pho with beef. The Pho came out in this huge bowl. I wondered if I'd be able to finish it. I'm staying at a hotel without a refrigerator in the room. I did not finish... More

We sat down and placed our order which was dumplings and 2 noodle soups. They brought us water and never returned to ask if we wanted anything else to drink. They delivered our dumplings and said nothing. We ate our dumplings then proceeded to wait for over an hour with no sign of our food 3 groups came in and... More
