The Thai food here is great, but it doesn't take reservations so expect to wait a while either standing outside or inside the front door. While waiting, there really isn't anywhere to sit, so it's a bit of a hassle, but the food was really good to it makes up for it. Not the best Thai I've ever had, but... More

This is the place I take any guests to! The food is absolutely delicious. I'm a vegetarian, and there are lots of options. No, these aren't just dishes where chicken is replaced with tofu, there are some original vegetarian dishes. What I've found though is that dishes within a particular section in their menu taste more or less the same,... More

Nice spacious place, friendly and very attentive staff. The menu is packed with so many choices! Our food came promptly, and was delicious to the last bite! Dessert was good. The rice was a bit tough in the rice and coconut mango dish. It tasted lovely, but softer rice would have made it perfect. Affordable prices and happy bellies. I... More

It was a good start when we received water with a lime wedge as soon as we arrived but then we didn't see a server for 10 min. She was rude and in attentive. Our food( no exaggeration) took 40 min and was not busy! It was bland and overcoooked. Never again,

My husband and I had our Sunday Brunch at Ha Long Bay. This was our second visit to this restaurant. We were so looking forward to returning to this restaurant after a very positive experience there about a month ago. However, we were extremely disappointed this time. The creep (made of rice flour) was terribly greasy; fish was way over... More

This place does not disappoint. There is a good reason there is a huge line of regulars either waiting for tables or waiting for takeout. Every meal I've tried here is incredible. I can't wait to go back.

Been here many times...Best curries and spring rolls in town. Many other good dishes that taste almost identically to dishes in SE Asia. Pad Thai isn't great. Staff is slow and not great at answering questions on the dishes. Can't get out in under 1hr for work lunches, which is a problem. Decent beer. Always have great leftovers and I... More

The decor is very colorful, the staff was friendly and the restaurant is clean. My vietnamese vermicelli was excellent although the noodles were slightly soggy. The rest of my family enjoyed their meal as well.

My friends took me to Ha Long Bay for dinner on a Saturday. We arrived at around 5:45PM which is the perfect time to come because we didn't have to wait for a table! Their menu is so extensive and has a variety of Thai, Vietnamese and Laos options. It's hard to choose what to get because it all sounded... More

My friend enjoys this place because they can accommodate gluten & dairy free needs. She introduced me to Ha Long Bay and I'm in love. I've only had the yellow curry lunch special because it is so good, I crave it! I'm sure there are other wonderful things on the menu, as I see and smell them as they are... More
