Bobs lunch

My favorite Asian choice in the neighborhood.. Great Vietnamese egg rolls, superb shrimp/asparagus soup. Reasonable prices and selections during the week. Appetizer platter is enough lunch for two. Full bar.

These are not your American/Chinese deep fried mini eggroll Spring rolls. These are cold, wrapped in Rice Paper, sort of like raw vegetarian sausage with a really thick and chewy casing. I got re acquainted with my gag response.l

I have passed by this restaurant for the past seven plus years without ever going in. Little did I know what I was missing. The atmosphere inside is very cute with both a bar and dining area. The food is very tasty with large portions served. Plus the menu has a lot of choices. I particularly love the lettuce wraps...so... More

Food was OK. Just not somewhere I would go out of my way to eat at again. Service was as mediocre as the food. Food was greasy and menu was not very clear that the food would be battered and deep fried.

We stopped in after seeing a movie and no one in our group knew the type of food Orchid serves. We left full with 6 extra egg rolls, and happy we took a chance. Everything we ordered was fantastic including the Orchid fried rice, spring rolls, egg rolls, and the honey sesame chicken. The service was also amazing! We will... More

We have lived nearby for 6 years and we have never been here. We had always heard the food was good. So we picked up some to go food and it was amazing! We had chicken fried rice and sesame chicken. He also had a couple of egg rolls which were also amazing.

It has been a while since we were here so we were hoping it was still the best.. it is. I have had nearly everything on the menu and I have never been disappointed. The wait staff alone makes this place and excellent choice for fine dining. We usually take the casual route and make reservations for a booth in... More

What I most appreciated was the variety in the menu. We had several entrees and were amazed at how quickly the piping hot food came out of the kitchen. My favorite of them was the sweet and sour chicken. It was well executed- the chicken was battered and fried perfectly and the sauce had great flavor. And, while I can't... More

A wonderful range of dishes. One of the few places that will serve Vietnamese Crepes on demand. Food is uniformly well prepared. Their buns are called Saigon Noodle Salads. They serve wonderful beignets for dessert.

This is a local place that always delivers good food. The Thai Basil Chicken is my favorite and is never disappointing.
