Took the family here a while ago, and was very happy. Great food, excellent bubble tea, fine dessert, admittedly my first experience with vietnamese cuisine but unforgettable. I can't recommend it highly enough.

The Pho at Mai Lan is the best I've ever had. Ever. Anywhere. The service is a little slow because it is a mom and pop place, and their English isn't too good, but the food is outstanding.

Maybe the owner has changed? I wouldn't recommend this restaurant. My imperial roll was so soft and squish that everything comes out and there was no meat/ shrimp, which is 3.50. Moreover the vegetable inside is not fresh. Also, the noodle soup was even sweet....More
