Like the food here

The location is quite nice and the prices are generally reasonable. Sometimes it is hard to decide what to get as the food might come out very differently than what you thought but it is still quite reasonable

I am really picky person for foods, however, I do love this Vetnamese restaurant so much. Even if it's a bit far away from my house, it is worth effort driving there!!!

Get the Bo Luc Lac or the Beef Stew (apps section). The Bo Luc Lac is made with high quality cuts, and liberally supplemented with garlic. The Beef Stew reminds me of New Orleans fare, and is easily spicy and hearty enough for a full meal. Those who knew this place before it burned down and was rebuilt may wish... More

A friend and I went to Mai's to try the Dau Hu Lu Loc. We both loved and were craving the Tofu Lu Loc and the now defunct Mo Mong. One good thing is there is a reasonable amount of parking for Mai's given the area. We went for a later lunch 12:30-ish so we got a spot. The wait... More

I LOVE Asian food. I KNOW Asian food. I have been all over Asia. This gem of a restaurant is simply awesome. I was on business in Houston and found it quite by accident. Atmosphere for a business lounge is totally conducive. Waiters were awesome and on point. Food was tasty, fast, hot fresh, and well presented. We had several... More

I love the large menu with many choices. I'm a vegan and I ordered the tofu vermicelli bowl which was delicious! The portions are quite generous here and I was full several hours. The service was good. When I'm in Houston again, I would definitely come back here to eat here again.

Coworker recommended this place so we took a trip to downtown Houston. Restaurant was very busy. Seemed we had to wait a long time for server. Food was quick to be brought out. Husband got the beef and broccoli and I got the chicken and asparagus. Both delicious. With tea and food, under $50. I would definitely eat there again.
