The owners of Viet Rice are really lovely people. Eating at their establishment is like being in your grandmother's dining room. The service and food is wonderful. I particularly enjoy their nourishing Pho soup with beef meatballs, tofu, lots of rice noodles and fresh vegetables. There is always a large plate of bean sprouts and cilantro to add into your...

I have only been here once but the food was really good. The price was not that bad either. It was not overly crowded and the service was really good.

I'm kind of spoiled. The best Vietnamese food I've ever had outside of Vietnam is in El Paso, where I used to live (yes, El Paso). But this place is pretty good. The food is good, the portions are adequate, and the cost is commensurate with the quality. We'll be back.

When Viet Rice first opened, years ago, it was fantastic! Everything they made was fresh and delicious and was made up of the finest ingredients. We returned this week after a long absence and we couldn't believe it was the same place. New owners; only one other person in the whole place...we found out why soon enough. The beef pho... More

Hole in the wall family run place with excellent rice dishes. They serve Kirin Beer! Good choice of regular and veggie dishes. Great service. Prices a tad high. Curry dishes and Pad Thai also good. Dark place with annoying Oriental Music.

Great family run place that specializes in Asian food. Shrimp curry and Pad Thai awfully good! Dark inside. Lots of magazines. Serves solo diners well. Has good beer selection.
