“Chow Jew Noodles overated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2010

Vien Huong is crowded at times having to wait to share a table if you come at their busy times such as lunch time. Service wasn't the best here. I came here to try their #12 Chow Jew Noodles a twice with ground pork, chicken, beef, kidneys, shrimp, fish balls which tasted alright, different, not great.

“A Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2008

This is one of the best "ethnic" restaurants in Oakland. My wife and I have been going for over 20 years and the food is worth at least three times what these modest people charge. Very few Vietnamese restaurants make their own noodles or even use their own recipes. Order the Shrimp Ho Fun or Beef Saday with the wide rice noodles and you will go away in great comfort.
