You will enjoy a quality dining experience at this restaurant--very good food and service. Excellent soup, Try the filet with watercress if you want a flavorful dinner. The "house" fried rice can't be beat. Noodles were very tasty. We are from Charleston, SC and always enjoy at least one meal at Hong Thanh when visiting family in Reading. Have never... More

This place came highly recommended so imagine our disappointment when the table we'd reserved was not ready when we arrived only to be eventually shown to a table by the hostess who slapped down the menus as if we were an inconvenience. We then waited almost an hour for delivery of our meals in a half empty restaurant and when... More

I have been going to them for over 20 years. I started at the location at Chestnut street, and continued at the 2nd location and now to Wyomssing. I loved their food, but have a deep concern. I am well aware of their overhead costs, but they have limited their menu, raised their prices, and made their portions smaller. This... More

I have some friends who always rave about this place so I tried it with them for a birthday celebration. The truth was I got so sick when I got home. The food was not very good. I had trouble finding things that I would even think about eating, and I love to experiment. My friend got some kind of... More

I had been wanting to dine at Hong Thanh since before they moved to Wyomissing and finally got there the other night. My friend and I ordered two appetizers - the lettuce wraps which we shared and the shrimp rolls which only she ate. The lettuce wraps were okay but not overly flavorful and ended up being quite messy to... More

The food was very good. When my wife requested a item she wanted, she was advised that it was only available for lunch. Service was OK, even though they got her dinner request wrong and had to re order what she wanted. Place was empty but we did come in at 4:00 pm.

We have followed Hong Thanh from Chestnut St. to Wyomissing. We love the food, the family, the atmosphere and the BYOB. We have dined all these years on 4 star food and service, and 2 of 3 star prices. It is our favorite restaurant ever since Dr. Roger Longenecker introduced us to the place. Our only request for improvement would... More

We made reservations (many of the reviews said to do so) to eat here for our anniversary. It is BYOB, so we were able to bring a bottle of champagne to celebrate. Since it's in a mini-mall, the tables are close together, and it definitely doesn't have a fancy restaurant feel (because you are viewing distance of Target), but it... More

We went to this place about 8 months ago. We showed up at 5:30 PM and were asked if we had a reservation. I said no and the young lady said "Without a reservation it would be two hours before we would be seated." The place was virtually empty and when I pointed this out to the Hostess, she replied...
