1st time food was over cooked. Tried it again with friends. Nice ambiance, nice staff and a different seafood dish was rubbery. Sorry will not be back

I keep trying to give this place a chance and I've tried many things on the menu but the only good thing they have going on is their soup. If you want soup then I'd check it out.

OK, I am an idiot. Every once in a while I am dying for some Vietnamese food and I give this place another chance. I love South East Asian food. I ordered a takeout noodle soup a week ago. I cannot tell you how upset I am. I was shocked to start eating it and realize it must have been... More

One of my favorite restaurants by far. The food is deliciously fresh. Try something that you have never tried before and I think you will be pleasantly surprised. My favorites include the chicken cabbage salad and the chicken with curry and lemongrass. The squid is also incredible. Definitely recommend.

This is one of the three restaurants owned by the same family in the Reading area. The servers are friendly and will answer any and all questions about the food. Vietnamese food is different than Chinese food. I find the flavors clean and distinguishable. When I order the same item it maybe plated a little different. The Reading Eagle has... More

My generously-sized portions of noodles was the perfect dinner treat. Pieces of chicken and shrimp were mixed with rice noodles in a tasty broth. There was no excessive salt--just great flavor. The veggies were crisp and fresh. If typical Chinese food tastes too salty, to heavy and too greasy, Hong Thanh is a delightful alternative and more authentic Asian food.

Service was very attentive, the food was good, solid fare with no surprises, very ample servings, well presented, but to my thinking mostly Chinese and not particularly Vietnamese - maybe it is Indochinese. I qualify that by pointing out we tried the house noodle dish and a special stir-fry and might have had a different experience had we tried some... More
