Good option

I have eaten here twice for lunch. Both times the food was very good, service was friendly an efficient. The place is not well lit, so it can seem like their closed if you walk in at the wrong time. If you like Chinese/Vietnamese food, this is really one of your best options in the area.

Just had a very tasty meal at Hong Thanh. The grilled eggplant appetizer was great, with bright fresh flavors. Marinated duck special was tasty, too. Pho was deemed slightly bland. Banana cake dessert was gobbled up quickly, as well as pecan bread pudding with butterscotch sauce. Will definitely return!

Hong Thanh is my favorite Asian restaurant within a five-mile radius of my home. BUT, when I'm forgetful enough to think about stopping in for lunch or a snack on Saturday or Sunday -- or anytime on Monday, I just have to mutter a curse and go elsewhere, because they're not open. The Vietnamese version of won-ton soup is the... More

I had the vermicelli rice bowl which was fresh and delicious. Husband had the sweet and sour chicken. Service was a little slow but not a big deal, we weren't in a rush. Can't wait to try the pho next time.

Yes, it's a bit pricey, but the food is well worth it. My girlfriend's daughter-in-law is from China and this place is a must every time they visit. The variety of cuisines is amazing. The servers are extremely helpful in choosing something different or new. We're going back this evening.

really love this place... The food is delicious but the waitress seemed to forget about us while we were waiting for our drinks... When she realized she apologized and then proceeded to forget my beer. So it was not till our food came that she realized I was still waiting for my drink. My daughter also advised that her food...

Noodle bowls are amazing value, Vietnamese enrolls rock and my BF lives for the sauteed filet with watercress, well worth the price and we are VERY frequent and frugal diners. Their seagood specials are also well worth the price and servers are all friendly and efficient. We dine here pretty much every 1-2 weeks.

While working near by stumbled upon this place - loved the food! Our waitress was really well informed, recommended the perfect thing for each of our party. She was so enthusiastic and made us feel so welcomed. All of our meals were delicious. Wish I'd made it back there but didn't have time

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
