That was a genuinely special experience. The food is very good. We enjoyed the sauté rice and beef soop ( really tasty). As another reviewer said, the decor could stand some improvement, but our experience of service was outstanding. First, the two people who took our order, served the food and visited the table to make sure everything was all right: these people, probably a family, are really hard workers and good humored. Then, encounter with the owner, who was taking care of payment and calling a cab. WOW. He understands customer service. He was really inspiring. An anecdote: our cab was very long to show up, so he called the taxi company again, and made clear that he wanted a cab for his customers. That was a threat to watch. As was the whole experience of witnessing the team's work in that restaurant. We have been to a special place: not necessarily as a chic restaurant, but it was an inspiring human experience, and the food is very good, with very reasonnable price. Also, the shaked drinks are worth a try.

We had no idea what to expect at Vietnam Restaurant but soon found it to be a very pleasant experience. As we looked over the very expansive menu and were discussing the many unknown choices a lady leaving from a nearby table stopped and told us that she & her husband loved it so much that they eat there almost every week. She suggested that we talk with the owner Mr Lom. In just a few seconds he came to our table and we told him we didn't have any idea what to order. He said let me order for you. Ok order for us. We had tea, wonderful spring rolls, soup and two delicious entrees, much more than we could eat (have no idea what they we called, one would been enough for the two of us). Total for all imcluding tip. $30.00. Can't speak highly enough about Vietnam restaurant.
