We wanted a window seat but they refused, although many tables were empty. Upon our protests they gave in. Chicken dish way overcooked and tough. Ditto wife's "happy pancakes" with shrimp. Few shrimp. Waitress couldn't understand what I meant by "beer on tap," and "beer on draft. Owners have very little English, causing problems.

Wonderful ambience. It appears to be a family business and the attention to diners, the food and the decor is wonderful to experience. If you get there early, you can enjoy the wonderful grounds and all the ceramics. Food was authentic and delicious.

We have been going to Truc's Orient Express for more than 15 years and it is invariably a special experience. Each of the dishes are carefully prepared with tasty but not overpowering or overly spicy sauces. We do have our favorites like the summer rolls with shrimp and the shaking been as well as the calamari salad and the happy... More

My favorite dish is the Happy Pancake. We have always loved this restaurant. All dishes are made to order. I love the family business atmosphere. We locals do support this restaurant and it is not ordinary. We are eating a takeout Happy Pancake and soup as I write this. Took a long time to get it home due to Tanglewood... More

I have never seen a Vietnamese restaurant anywhere in the world that is as expensive as this restaurant. The portions are really quite small, especially for the approximately $17.00 - 18.00 they charged for a small plate of fried rice. Many of the other dinner entrees with meat were $25-30, which is the most I've seen at a Vietnamese restaurant.... More

In fairness, it was a Saturday night and the restaurant was crowded. They claimed they were short staffed. However, we waited 40 min. to order our food. The appetizers were mediocre and the entrees were poor. My five-spice chicken was tiny, burned, and left me hungry. They forgot to bring a beer I had ordered (they did give me a... More

We have been having wonderful Vietnamese food in this family owned and operated restaurant for years. We go here just for the summer rolls that are freshly made and loaded with shrimp, vegetables, mint and rice sticks. The owners are lovely people who enjoy their customers.

I don't understand all the negative reviews-we were here on a Sunday evening for dinner and could not have been more pleased. Service was excellent, our water glasses were constantly refilled, and the setting was delightful. We had the summer rolls and hot and sour soup from the vegetarian menu to start, and the happy pancake and the lemongrass tofu... More

This was a very interesting food, restaurant experience in this small but very pretty town. Outside before you enter the restaurant is a store with all sorts of different gift ideas. Two of us ordered vegetarian dishes, other diner ordered a chicken, sausage dish. All were with very fresh ingredients but not overly exciting. Vegatarian spring rolls as an appetizer... More

We visited this place on a Thursday night. The place is big and pretty. It wasn't busy at all but the waitress took about 15 min to get our drink orders and then about 10 min to actually bring the drinks. Food is nothing special and a bit pricey. For appetizers we ordered a crab soup that didn't have any... More
