Went there back in May for lunch with sis and ordered shrimp papaya salad and love it so I saw groupon offer half off coupon for this place I immediate grab it. Last week I took my family there and ordered shrimp salad again. First if all, the size of the salad was less than what I ordered last time, secondly, the quality of the salad was not as good as before. It has much less and smaller shredded papaya also not as fresh like before. Same to the shrimp. Since the face value of the groupon was $50, so I ordered several dishes and couple of them were traditional Vietnamese dishes I had at more than 10 different Vietnamese restaurants before. When the lady brought out the bun bo hue I thought it was a joke. The longest length of the noodle in
the bowl was like half of an inch, not longer the bean sprout. It is the sign of overlooked rice noodle that broken into smaller pieces or it is the leftover noodle at the bottom of the pot. I asked the lady why it is like this and explained that we had bun no hue at many other places and we know this dish and the noodle not suppose to be like this. The lady first argued with me that this dish is like this everywhere else using big noodle but that's not my point. The noodle was clearly over cooked and broken into smaller pieces. But she still insist it is the big size noodle used in this dish. I dont want to ruin my family dinner so i stop reasoning with her. Two minutes later she brought out a small dish with some noodle that was cooked right this time and said the noodle in the bowl was not cooked right.
We finished the dinner and I just want to get out of there as soon as possible.
These was 2 very different dinning experiences in the same restaurant with same waitress. I wonder if it is because I used groupon so I did not get the same quality of food and service or the restaurant is going downhill. It is a shame that they have the ability to offer quality food before that's why I got the groupon and came back but they do not keep it consistent. And that's why I am not going back to this place.
