Good food

The food was pretty good for the most part. The "mild" wasn't mild for me, it still had way too much. But for not knowing what we were getting it was ok.

I was greeted immediately upon entry and shown to a booth. My Pad Thai and coffee were in front of me within 7 minutes. The pad Thai was a bit on the spicy side for me (I'm glad I ordered the mild) and lacked the color I am accustomed to. The egg and sprouts could be increased. The peanut and... More

With an innocuous name like Kemah Café, you kind of expect the normal café fare - burgers, fries, blue plates, etcetera, but this is a Vietnamese restaurant. If that you want, then it is pretty good. My cousin and I had the Caffee Suh Dah (sp?) which is very strong coffee with condensed milk that is poured over ice when... More

I enjoy going here in the evening because it has simple good foods, friendly attentive staff and quick service. It's just a little cafe offering mainly Vietnamese (but also Chinese) food and no beer or wine. Many go by for the pick-up service as well. Dishes I like include the pho (soup), vermicelli bowls with grilled meat or seafood, and... More

I have coming to eat Pho here since they opened. Definitely the best Pho in the area and I have eaten at them all. I personally have never had anything but good service. The prices are good. My ony thing I don't like is the traffic to get out since it is near the light. Other than that it is... More

This is probably the worst service I have ever received. I would not recommend this place to anyone,ever. While trying to have an enjoyable moment with my family ,the service was horrible,they messed up on my food twice!and we were the only customers at the moment,the waiter rolled his eyes while setting the food down. And basically sat a table... More
