My family and I eat here as often as possible. Kim uses fresh herbs and veggies from her garden. Her Tom Yum soup is amazing! The Vietnamese egg rolls are the best I've had stateside. Great selection from pho to stir fry. I am slowly working my way through the menu, but always start with the Tom Yum. I am... More

My wife and I have gone to Fai Foo's many times. We love Kim & Phong, and every dish we have had is delicious. The crepe is fantastic. Plenty has been said about the fresh ingredients that Kim uses. The only reason I gave a 4 instead of a 5 was because you never really know when they are open.... More

After hearing from an old friend about the good Vietnamese food at a place in Rockport (or was it Port Aransas) I decided to give the Fai Foo a try. Though a westerner, I lived in the city of Huế, Việt Nam, in 2005-06 and know a thing or two about Vietnamese food. And I found two things - the... More

Best Tom Yum soup and freshest spring rolls we've ever had! A short drive from the main shopping area and not much look at, but better than any I've had in Austin. Home cooking by a very friendly couple. Will take their quality over a just average buffet anytime! Tell Kim we said Hi!

Great Vietnamese food served by a very lovely hard-working couple. Worth the short drive from the beach. Our only suggestion is that the atmosphere could stand for some improvement. Minimally, some ethnic music in the background would be nice. That said, great hospitality and food made for a lovely meal.

Different lunch specials every day. Will "spice it up" to suit your taste. Just ask what level of "heat" you would like. Everything cooked to order. Try a soup and spring rolls while your meal is prepared. -----

We went to lunch on a Thursday at noon, and the place was empty at first. The menu is extensive, mixing Vietnamese and Thai selections. It was hard to decide, because everything sounded so good. But I ordered spring rolls for our appetizer, and my lunch was the "Fai Foo Special" plate (description said baby clams, sesame, cilantro). My husband... More

The indgredients are fresh and the menu has good choices. I had the Pho and the Vietnamese Eggrolls. The skins were crisp, not greasy. Vale is outstanding and quality sets the... More
