This place looks grubby and tired. The food was a solid 4 on a scale of 10. The whole experience was disappointing. One expects better in a city like Austin.

It is my favorite Vietnamese lunch hot spot. Service is great. Food arrives steaming. I enjoy it with Mango bubble tea. No better way to spend a Saturday lunch.

OK, I wrote a great, praising review last November when I was visiting Austin, but this trip in February to Kim Phung was even better. I miss this restaurant so much (but I'm still not leaving Taos, NM!). The food is extremely fresh, flavorful and ALOT of it! The staff bend over to please. I highly recommend the iced Jasmine tea...just perfect with lime! I especially love the Bun with grilled chicken and lemongrass. You HAVE to try this out - even if you don't like asian food....it's fantastic! The Pho soups are great, but it's Bun for me. Check it out. The young owners are doing a wonderful job. You will be blown away by the immense menu....lots of choices. Everyone should find a dish they will also love as much as I love my favorite there!

Lunch specials are a good value, if you like the more bland, Americanized asian cusine. Two stars, maybe three for the lunch specials. For the GOOD food, either pick some Pho - or even better, get one of the specialty dishes. Yes, it costs more for the specialty dishes but it is definitely worthwhile if you want a more authentic, flavorful meal. The iced tea is a nice jasmine tea - NOT standard Texas iced tea. I like it quite a bit, just be forewarned.
