My family and I have been going to Dac Hoa for over 20 years and it is always great. The Bun is the best.

We were in Vietnam two summers ago for 3 weeks and Dac Hoa definitely tasted like what we ate around the country. We had goi cuon which was very minty like I like it. Two of us had bun with roast duck, a pho ga (chicken pho) and duck noodle soup. Everything was great. We'll eat here again when we... More

This is one of the first Vietnamese restaurants that I frequented back when I lived in Rochester. Coming back here from Austin feels like being home! The Pho and Bun dishes are fantastic! I go to some of the best Vietnamese restaurants, particularly in Houston, and this place stands up to them. Fresh ingredients, well prepared, great people. Love it!

With fond memories of some wonderful Asian offerings, I went back for the first time in several months to the Doc Hoa. I was not disappointed. This family run restaurant offers some of the most authentic Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai dishes available in the Rochester area. The Szechuan Pork I ordered was extremely tender with some of the best brown... More

I have been eating at Dac Hoa for over twenty years. Great selection-Well prepared- Try the barbecue Duck and the fresh spring rolls.The best I have ever eaten. The service is a little slow,but always friendly. No sense driving to Toronto for Asian food. We have the best right here.

As customers for 24 years we believe that this is still the best Vietnamese food in town, and was again last evening when we were in. We always have a hard time getting by our stand-bys, the addictive fried Vietnamese springrolls and the refreshing shrimp vermicelli bowls. Or go with the duck or barbeque pork from the front window, and... More

Our family loves to dine at Dac Hoa Restaurant on Monroe Avenue. We love the extensive menu and never become bored with the choices. The food is consistently high-quality and the service has always been friendly and attentive. We feel as though we are being treated to a home-cooked Vietnamese meal. The plain storefront building only adds to the mystique... More

Don't be put off by the lack of ambiance in this storefront restaurant, with plastic tablecloths and houseplants in the large windows. The host (and presumed owner) greets and seats all diners. She is a very likable, friendly, and talkative woman, who runs a tight ship. Their menu is exhaustive, but for me their multiple options for me, the duck... More

The food is delicious and the service is wonderful. Lu has an amazing memory and always remembers what our entire family enjoys the most. They are very vegan friendly and Lu will tell you if something has any animal products in it...and most of the time can make it without. Some personal favorites are the Pad Ke Mau and the... More
