Our Favorite Vietnam Restaurant

We eat here so regularly that we have a known table. When one of us shows up, the staff points to 'our' table which isn't really reserved but seems to be generally open. We tend to be lunch early birds. The reason we eat here is that what we get is great and decently priced. A bit ago, the... read more

Lovely Vietnamese restaurant with efficient service. Excellent, tasty food at low prices. Large bowl of pho ga (chicken noodle soup) and great stir fried rice noodles with a combination of seafood and chicken. Both only $8 each. Unbeatable!!

Best place to eat in town, and has great pricing. The vegetarian food is great tasting as well, so try it if you are a meat eater, you won't notice the difference! Expect a wait around 6/7pm because people like to eat here a lot, there are a lot of regulars. The service is good, sometimes you do wait for... More

It was my birthday and husband took me here for an early dinner. The food was great, no MSG, vegetarian, mostly soups, but very fresh and tasty. The service was great, friendly and often.

Went to Viet Taste today for lunch and had egg rolls, Thai iced coffee and a curry dish with rice/shrimp. I thought the service was excellent and the food was wonderful. Fortunately, I was able to get a table far away from the door, as the weather was terrible outside. Since this restaurant is located in a strip mall I... More

We come here fairly frequently and enjoy the good service and food at a fair price. I almost always have the bun and it is always fresh and tasty.

This strip mall restaurant was packed on a weekday evening. The spring roll and papaya salad with shrimp were good--not great--appetizers. But the main course, the grilled pork noodle bowl, was outstanding. I'd definitely return but it would be difficult to opt for something other than the grilled pork!

Had a delicious beef Pho, spring rolls and papaya salad. Although, ask for extra spice if you like, as the papaya salad is quite mild.

The ambience was fine clean. Food was just average same with other Vietnamese places we go nothing special. The service was a little slow though. The price was affordable.
