Very busy today, but still fast and friendly service. Good selections prepared perfectly with fresh hot ingredients. Our “go to” place for Chinese/Asian food. Worth our drive from the lake to go here. Reasonable prices and good portions keep the customers coming back. Our favorite...wait person, June, outstanding as usual.More

Ok, so the lunch menu is up 20%+% in just 10 months to $9.95, but today a reasonable value. Food is always good, taste, appearance and hot. Service is usually excellent, today was just ok, a new waiter. Been going back for several years now...and will continue to do so.More

Oh my gosh You do not have to twist my arm to go here. The food is great and so many different kinds. You can omit something from your dish. It is made fresh and oh so good. I have always a take home bag...because there is to much to eat.More

I’ve been here several times in the past, but today was horrible. The waitress brought me someone else’s food to begin with. Then she brought my husbands food before she brought mine (she said she didn’t want his food to get cold). So I sit...there waiting for mine (mine was cold when she brought it to me) the meat was tough, the rice was stale, the cucumbers tasted like what I would imagine a cleaning solution would taste like. Unbelievable. Got the check…received 2 fortune cookies…and yeah they were stale. Never again for us.More

Sunday lunch specials, $8.95 includes egg roll and soup. Food here has always been good, consistent and cooked perfectly. Had five with kids and all were pleased. Service was prompt and attentive, even today which was very busy. Good atmosphere with friendly staff. Chef has...been the same for a long time, hence the good presentations and consistency!More

Expect to pay more WITHOUT your knowledge!! We felt scammed. I’ve been here several times over the past few years, even though I prefer La Dalat Vietnamese restaurant downtown. It was closed though, unfortunately. The food was ok 5/10. When we got our bill, every...item we ordered was at least $1-3 more than the price listed on the menu. We questioned the waitress about the charges. She pointed to a tiny sticker on the top right hand corner of the menu stating that some prices will increase. She did not point this out, nor did she advise us of the price increase in all 4 items we ordered, when we ordered. All of the prices were OLD prices! I asked her why the prices on the menu did not reflect the actual prices and she stated that “the prices change every month and we can’t afford to print new menus” WHAT????? She advised us that “nobody else complains.” I get that restaurants have suffered, and that’s why I always choose local over chain restaurants, but this is NOT how businesses should operate if they want to stay open. I’m willing to pay a little more to help out a struggling restaurant, if I know upfront what I’m going to pay. This is not ok and it is highly unethical. We will not be back.More

I know this is a harsh...review, but this is much needed! One of the worst reviews I have ever written. Today I had a taste for chicken Pho soup so my husband went to Saigon Cafe in Temple. We are a small town and don't...have many options...This is NOT Vietnamese food! My husband and I are well traveled USA and Internationally... and this is the WORST!!! Vietnamese restaurant we have eaten at. The PHO soup was the worst we have ever had. This place needs to be closed down!!! La Dalat-Vietnemese Downtown Temple is much better. My chicken was boiled and didn't even look or taste like real chicken! My husbands fried rice was mushy and over cooked. The fried rice had to be thrown away not edible! The portion of the Beef and broccoli dish my husband ordered was a dinner portion. Which was a joke!!! The photos speak for itself!!! $24 Price of our meal Pho soup, fried rice and dinner portion Beef and broccoli. I would recommend La Dalat Vietnamese restaurant Downtown Temple. Its the best you will get in Temple/Belton area.More

The menu is 90% Chinese. I ordered one of the few Vietnamese dishes on the menu, pork with vermicelli. The pork was over cooked, to death, tough and tasteless. It had been overcooked earlier in the day because it was tepid, not warm. The dish...did not include the fresh herbs that go with it. This is on of my favorite Vietnamese dishes, and what I received was a poor imitation. Don’t order the “roasted calamari.” It is deep fried, 20% squid and 80% breading. The breading was oddly crunchy, and I think it may have been precooked and on some sort of warming device. Maybe the Chinese dishes were better? Not going back to find out.More

Normally the Chinese here is decent, but lately you can tell they are massively cutting corners. Ordered takeout pad thai for my family since the thai place we go to was closed. Got home and everyone took a bite and it was unspeakably bad! It...is nothing like pad thai, mine was not spicy at all, the meat tasted rubbery and it was so horrible I actually drove back up there. The woman said oh that's what I ordered, so oh well. I would've gladly exchanged out for a Chinese meal and never ordered the pad thai again. She said she could...at fifty percent off. What a RIP-off! How can you serve that garbage to loyal customers and then tell them to make it right they have to fork over even more money? Not going back, they lost our business, hope selling that cruddy pad thai was worth it.More

Everything about this restaurant is superb. Most important the food is delicious and the service is excellent. The combination makes it a favorite place to eat! The menu can meet everyone's request and you will never be disappointed. The wait staff is there to serve...you with a smile. Relaxing atmosphere and easy parking is a real plus.More

First off we came in rather late around 9:30 pm on a Wednesday evening. It was right before Thanksgiving and I knew the employees were anxious to get home to their families. We were so blessed that evening, as Chris was our waitperson. He was...so kind and knowledgeable about the menu and helped with suggestions, which were outstanding. He was polite and attentive throughout the meal telling us not to rush but to enjoy ourselves. I do not think that I have met a more confident or gracious young man. He will go far in life and after talking with him a bit, he disclosed that he was headed to Texas Tech to major in Astro Physics. What a delight Chris was and bless him on his journey.More
