Best spring rolls with peanut sauce I've ever eaten!!

This has been my family's favorite eatery since 1994 when we moved to KC. The spring rolls and pan-fried dumplings are beautiful and delicious! The peanut sauce is addictive...you can't go wrong with anything they serve.

Wanted to try this place, but they do not serve in the restaurant. I was really disappointed and ended up next door for dinner. Sorry for the terrible review, but I could not pick another rating.

Went to this restaurant with a lunch group that always selects locally owned establishments. I think there were 6 of us and the consensus was "just ok". Service was attentive, yet they forgot the spring roll I'd ordered with lunch and I had to flag them down to get it. I give them that the spring roll and the accompanying... More

I have been here several times, especially when I worked at KU. The owner and staff are so friendly and even gave me some extra peanut sauce to take home (I would seriously buy it if they sold me a jar of it to take home!) All of their food is wonderful. The spring rolls with peanut sauce are my... More

I always get fresh spring rolls with that fabulous peanut sauce. We share an order of the Vietnamese noodles. This is a casual restaurant.

Thin small, warm restaurant comforted us after a day of driving through the remnants of a snowstorm. We started with an order of three spring rolls, cut in half, served on lettuce with a side of a delicious peanut sauce. We split two entrees; the first was a Number 8 Rice Noodle Salad with chicken, shrimp and steak. Note to... More

Beware: various reviewers along with my own experience have confirmed the owner of this restaurant dislikes gay people, Asians, women and children. He won't hold back in making said people feel unwelcome and uncomfortable. Sound like a fun time? Better yet, the food does nothing to make up for this horrible man. I'd recommend taking your business to Vietnam Cafe... More

Best shrimp spring rolls in town, cute little store front place down on 39th street (close to KU Med) - street parking available and great value for the money!

We went for Monday lunch at noon and they were decently busy with no wait. I haven't been here since the fire several years ago-the food is still good but the walls are now bare and the ambiance is suffering. We had the #1, "meatloaf" soup, the meat is shrimp, ground chicken, and one other 'meat' held together with egg... More

Great place to go if you want authentic Vietnamese. I like this place, but think Vietnam Cafe at the end of 39th Street is better.
