If you plan to visit SE Asia, stop by here first so you can see what the food will be like. Here you'll find a great selection of real SE Asian food. Tons of vegetarian options. Fast service, great food, and plenty of room between tables. The poisons other restaurants specialize in serving - fat, sugar, and dairy - are... More

Downtown location is convenient and has ample parking. The ambiance is clean but similar to a Chinese buffet. The menu has so many options and a great vegetarian selection. The host isn't very warm but my waiter both times I have been there has been very sweet and quick. Good prices. I really liked the lemon grass curry!

I have nothing but good things about A Dong, so I took my wife. Everything was amazing !! The service was impeccable, and the food was out of this world..

Always fresh vegetables, soups made from scratch, and very tasty. Service is friendly and efficient, the restaurant has a cafeteria feel, but then, the price is right

I enjoy trying new things, which is what led me to check out A Dong in mid-2013. Since that first experience, I have been hooked and this place is quickly becoming one of my new favorite restaurants in Des Moines. Eating a new kind of food can be intimidating, but sometimes you just need to put yourself out there. In... More

I have eaten at A Dong on a number of occassions for the past several months since I began working in downtown Des Moines. It is within walking distance from where my office is. I really like this place. I have only eaten one dish (#66 ginger chicken) and nothing else. I love ginger chicken and this place never disappoints.... More

I had the Seven C's, unbelievably good. And you won't even miss the meat in this Vegatarian treat! Very fast service. You can bet I'll be back!

I think A Dong's is a great Thai restaurant, among other ethnic offerings, located mostly central to the city with spacious seating and excellent service. I always get the stuffed tomato and the coffee made with condensed cream. Yum!
