This is superb Vietnamese food. We both had pho and the medley of spices and ingredients were unusual and delicious. An enjoyable meal and the best pho ever!

Lan has been around for a long time and really puts out some wonderful authentic Vietnamese food. If you don't think their food is authentic - you have never had real Vietnamese food. Lan's is the real thing. One of my favorites is the Vietnamese crepe. This is an item that you don't often see on a Vietnamese menu, which... More

If you are not a food person this is not the place for you. Let's face it, the wait staff at Lan's is less than to be desired but at least they are friendly. My first couple trips there were also quite slow on getting our entrees but that has gotten much better over the last year. Now the important... More

Lan is always in the back cooking. She's very thoughtful in her cooking and uses fresh, local and organic ingredients. Multi-dimensional and layered flavors come through. We always try something new and end up loving it. Atmosphere (strip mall, cold decor) is lacking and service is just so-so, but you'll forget all that when you eat her food. Just go!

We met friends here for a small get together and were looking forward to some delicious Vietnamese food. We came early and were one of only about three tables occupied but it filled up before too long. It took us a while to order from all the chatting we were doing, and the drinks came with no issues. But, we... More

Tasty all the way. While this city has many (nearly 200?) eateries, Lan's is one where we go for a celebration. She herself has the great taste. Feel lucky for the experience.

Ordered take out and when we arrived 25 minutes later the food was not ready and the counter was very disorganized. We waited five more minutes( saw what were most likely our egg rolls come out to be delivered to a table but they circled and went back to the kitchen.). This might have been a hint, but it was...

Tried this restaurant because of the positive reviews - We were disappointed. The challenge was to define/describe the origins of the food - wife eventually described it as "fusion" - the challenge then became "fusion of what" - we finally decided it was a new, as yet, unidentified country/culture. When discussing our concerns with one of the management we were... More

We got a little tired of all the Southwest/Mexican food we were eating during our recent vacation in Santa Fe and so wanted a change of pace and found Lan's. While we do not hold ourselves out to be experts on Vietnamese food, we have had it regularly at home and thought that Lan's was a wonderful restaurant. It is... More

Everything were ordered was outstanding. I have never had Vietnamese food before this but I was very impressed. It is not all Vietnamese, for instance I had Carpaccio but like I said it was all fantastic. Really fresh and earthy flavors. Very friendly, good service. I would highly recommend it.
