“Excellent Vietnamese!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Takeout is excellent but it would be nice to eat-in too. It's not charmless like so many mostly takeout places. The Banh Xeo - to die for. The avocado smoothie will change your life (beware - it's HUGE!). The spring rolls are very good. Service was not super organized, but it was super helpful. Definitely a spot I will hit every time I come to Charlotte. Area is kind of sketch, if that's an issue for you.

“The Real Deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

If you want good Vietnamese food, ask Vietnamese people where they eat and what they order. Doan's, a new Vietnamese restaurant at 5937 South Blvd. (closed Wenesdays), came highly recommended and offers real Vietnamese food at reasonable prices. We were delighted to have Andy Pham (the owner's son) as our server, and savored fresh spring rolls(not fried) with peanut sauce, spicey beef pho and tender, savory beef with peppers and onions. The portions are large, service is good, prices are reasonable. The food is very good, just like what we've eaten when we traveled in Vietnam. The restaurant is roomy and unpretentious with plenty of parking. We'll be regulars.
