This place is so much fun! The staff is a blast and the food is fantastic! Great pho and fabulous share plates. I love the crispy clay pot rice dish!

Was disappointed by most of the dishes served - lemongrass brussel sprouts appetizer was best dish. Vegetable hot pot was disappointing - supposed to be bok choy, mushrooms, tofu and cracked rice, but very little bok choy in dish - two strands. Grilled prawns and noodles - prawns were seared into the shells - this was foolish - dish couldn't be eaten that way and was returned. Soup and salad served with dinner were really poor. Server seemed new - didn't know anything about the vast majority of dishes - she was poorly trained, if at all. SKIP IT.

Strange place. Chairs and tables did not fit the relatively small space, so much so that you couldn't actually get into your chair because it was already jammed up against the person's chair sitting behind you. Fork but no knife? We had to ask twice for knives. By 6:30 p.m. on a Saturday night the entire place had practically emptied out. Our Shrimp Spring Roll was chewy and tasteless and they removed our sauce before we were finished ! Our Rice Vermicelli dishes were bland as well - one with Charbroiled Chicken and one with Lemongrass & Chicken. I've had much better Pho at home in Cleveland, Ohio. The staff was constantly scurrying around the restaurant in a confused state for most of the time we were there.

We entered Slanted Rice to be warmly welcomed. Our waiter Taylor was extremely helpful by explaining all the choices offered. He also advised us to make sure we smelled the different courses as they came. Good advice. A part of the experience would have been missed with out that. We had spring rolls a vegetarian and shrimp. They came in two large pieces with very tasty dipping sauces. The veggies were so fresh and full of flavor. I ordered a Crispy
Rice Shrimp Pot. It was in a clay pot with the rice on the bottom. There were many tasty vegetables with mild delicious seasoning. I added some of "Grandma's Chile Sauce" to mine. It can with soup that smelled and tasted remarkable. A salad came with it, that had a light ginger vinaigrette dressing. It was crispy and mild. There were just so many flavors that went perfectly together. If you have not tried Vietnamese Cooking try it. Slanted Rice is a great place to start. And if you are lucky enough to have Taylor serve you, it will be a high spot in your day. He was patient with us, answering many questions. The pricing is very reasonable too.

Delightful spot! Easy decor with delicious Vietnamese food. The owner is serious about her customers and visits tables often. She welcomes suggestions...and has an endless smile.
