We'd had enough of barbecue and wanted something inexpensive and flavorful. This pan-Asian restaurant really delivered - the wonderful smells greet you from a block away. Host told us there would be a 25 min wait, but maybe due to their efficiency, we were seated within 10 min. Totally worth even a longer wait! Fried rice, Chinese style flank steak... More

This is my fourth ( fifth, sixth, I lost count) visit here. There is a huge variety on the menu, and so far it's always outstanding. Be prepared to wait for a table. There had always been a wait when we come here, typically about a half hour. They have love music at night, a few locals who play old... More

This is an unimpressive looking place in a strip mall in east Austin but surprisingly the food quite good for the price.I have eaten here off and on for over a decade and have never been poisoned here unlike many other ethnic restaurants in Austin. Their weekday buffet is not bad but get there early because as lunch wears on... More

My husband and his chef friend came here late one night and loved it, so I asked that we go with the kids after church. We got there right as they opened at noon. By the time we left, the place was packed! My husband and I both had pho, and it was delicious - top notch broth. The kids... More

But what we really enjoyed was the Pho, fresh ingredients and huge size evene yhr small order. Finally took a cheesecake to... More

After a long drive when we arrived late night in Austin our dining choices were limited so we gave this restaurant a chance and we were glad we did! We started with the spring rolls,these were the fresh ones wrapped in rice paper and they were delicious as was the accompanying peanut sauce. Then for main course I chose the... More

The only reason I gave 2 stars was because the fried rice was good. The sweet and sour chicken was disgusting. I was very disappointed in this place. Service wasn't that great either.

Lunch buffet M-W-F was a lucky find for us. Good buffets bring in lot of customers, which means the food is always fresh. Lots of choices, most of it well suited to steam table service. Mostly the food was familiar, although I'd never had mussels sate, which were excellent. Noodles, rice, fish, chicken, pork -- the gamut. You can also... More

We've been here twice now and the food is awesome. They have a large menu featuring Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai selections. There has a crowd both times though so be prepared to wait a short while (we've had to wait about 15-20 minutes both times). The food is terrific and the portions are very large. prices are reasonable given the... More

Following a downtown concert that ended just before midnight, we were starving for the dinner we'd missed and were desperate to find somewhere that wouldn't present a parking challenge. We arrived at 888 about 12:15 AM and found a very busy restaurant with a vibrant crowd. We had to wait about ten minutes for a table, and since there is... More
