Fresh food

Good flavors and a nice selection that is unique. The busy parking lot can make visiting the restaurant a challenge during peak times

The food was a B plus but the service was so incredibly slow. They were slammed and seemed highly understaffed. Nice atmosphere and can accommodate large groups if you can wait!

Cody is our favorite server but all the servers are excellent; Cody is always prompt, attentive, remembers details and is very conscientious of time, even when extremely busy. He knows the menu very well and helps me with a new choice, as I am always reluctant to 'give up' my current beloved regular menu item. My boyfriend is a big... More

Actually, the fortune cookie this time said "Take time to relax especially when you don't have the time for it." Who would have thought this would be a good place to relax with a homemade dessert and a huge pot of jasmine tea? Well, I'm enjoying warm homemade banana cake and delicious tea after a tasty fresh noodle dish. Atmosphere... More

We went to Hong Thanh on a Friday evening with family...I was concerned that we did not have a reservation but my concerns were unfounded when we found the restaurant mostly empty. The Vietnamese egg rolls were excellent! The entrees were bland and had no presentation...the food looked like it was just poured in a bowl. In the past we... More

From the tasteful yet simple contemporary atmosphere to the explosively delicious appetizers and main courses, Hang Thanh is an island of culinary goodness surrounded by franchise purgatory It's BYOB yet affordable regardless. Excellent service, chefs and staff clearly take pride in you delighting in their cuisine. For Berks County standards, it's great food, lots of it and you can't beat... More

I visit here frequently during the year and usually get the same thing...the noodle bowls. The ambience is pretty modern and neat and the food I find to be delicious. No need to be afraid of Thai food here...your pallet will water the moment your meal is served.

Very good authentic food for dine in or take out prices are about right maybe a little on the high side for some dishes but it's a very good dish. MY FAVORITE is the house special rice vermicelli

For over 25 years we have been dining at Hong's and are never disappointed. Tonight our party of 9 ordered 8 different entrees and several appetizers most of which we shared. Some were specials, others tried and true menu items. My favorite entree is the House Special (crispy) lo mein. The sweet potato shrimp toast and crispy Vietnamese egg rolls... More
