Willing to Accommodate!

We were traveling and Springfield was our central meeting place for several carloads of hungry derby girls. Though this place is very small, they were able to seat all 24 of us together and everyone loved the food that they got. I've eaten here before and will again!

We eat out Vietnamese food a bit in Chicago and this would be considered average to just below average in Chicago. However, the dishes that we had here were not that bad if our expectations had not been set so high by the reviews. The peanut sauce for the spring rolls was good, but the rolls were less tightly wrapped... More

Our favorite place to eat. Hot and sour soup is amazing. The service and the food are worth the trip. Very friendly staff. Portions are very nice sized. Enough to share

We atopped in for lunch on a Saturday. It was not busy at 11:30, but by 12:15 it was packed. And for good reason! This place offers excellent food, and everyone we interacted with was friendly and courteous. I got Thai Red Curry, and my wife got Sesame Chicken, fried rice, and an eggroll. I sampled hers, and everything was... More

The menu contains an assortment of Thai, Vietnamese, and Chinese dishes. My family tried the Pho, Tom Yum Seafood, Pad Thai, Fried Rice, Summer rolls, crab Rangoon, and the Saigon coffee. All dishes were very good. Three atmosphere was pleasant. Maybe a little upscale for the 8-10 year old girls with us, but the service was very friendly and helpful.... More

When we walked in, no one greeted us or even said “Hello” even though several staff personnel were standing around talking. The sign in middle of the walkway indicated “Seat Yourself” so we did. Our service was quick, but our sever needs to learn how to be more attentive. We ask that our food be served “spicy hot” and it... More

After driving past this restaurant a couple times a week for the past 4 years, I finally decided to give it a try. They have a great dinner special (it might be limited to weeknights tough). We had an appetizer and 2 entrees for less than $20 if I recall correctly. Delicious food and very friendly staff! I think we... More

I love this place and stop there on almost every trip to Springfield. The crab ragoon are light, crispy and heaven in your mouth. It is Vietnamese cuisine, with other Asian influences. I've tried something different every time I've been there and everything is GREAT. The staff are courteous and helpful and the only thing that is maybe a down... More

Thai beef salad was delicious. Beef wasn't nice slices but were bits/pieces. Tom Yum soup w/shrimp & pineapple was very good, a bit too sweet for our tastes, still worthwhile & a huge portion, the large serving bowl had 8 bowls of soup in it. Mongolian Beef - very pedestrian dish but tasty. Catfish w/hot chilies & lemongrass was terrific,... More
