Horrible Pho Imitation, serves bean sprout w/ roots still on it

Foods are a little bit on the pricy side, horrible IMITATION of Vietnamese Food. Served us the beans sprout with the roots still on it, so it seemed like there is hair on your food and in your mouth. If you're looking for an authentic Vietnamese Taste, this is NOT where you would want to go... read more

Amazing Pho, good vegetarian options and the friendliest staff. This place is a little gem and well worth the effort.

Annie's is awesome. It's inexpensive. Like really inexpensive. The food is magnificent. Like really, really great. And Annie does it all. It looks like a take out place but don't be fooled. If you don't go there when you go to Louisville, you've missed the best.

Had a great lunch there. They were so helpful with the menu as I was a first time patron. Food was great and plentiful and prices were not bad either. Definitely will be going there many more times.

Annie's is located in the South End of Louisville where restaurants are somewhat scarce and it is nice to have a reliably good restaurant serving authentic vietnamese fares. It is a family owned restaurant, Annie is in the kitchen and her family helps with the service. I often pick up a carry out and it was always very quick. The... More

Small and quaint place. The food was excellent and priced very reasonably. Entree was fresh and served very quickly. Not many criticisms of the place all in all, we enjoyed the experience and would go back.

My first visit to Annie Cafe. Restaurant was clean and casual, formica-topped tables. The Ca Kho To (catfish clay pot dish) was delicious with two large fillets of fish with a thin, dark, slightly sweet sauce and green onions. We also ordered the vegetarian garlic sauce with vegetables over rice was the disappointment. Lots of canned baby corn, canned mushrooms,... More

Not as much variety on the menu as the popular Vietnam Kitchen, but the dishes that Annie's has are are much better in my opinion! There is also a selection of familiar Chinese-American dishes for the not so sure about Vietnamese food person that my be dining with you. Friendly service and very affordable make this the best place to... More

Annie's serves the best Vietnamese food in the city. Great vegetarian options also! Love The Cafe over ice, even during winter time.

This restaurant has the awesome vegetarian food. The service is great. I don't know too much about Vietnamese food, but all of my friends thinks Annie's is the best in Louisville.
