For the past 8 years this has been my favorite place to eat. I talk about it all the time and tell everyone I meet that they have to go to Bona for the best food in the world! My number 1!!!! Letter H without peanuts. Once you go here you'll understand the "H". But its a Bun (rice noodles, carrots, bean sprouts, lettuce) with to die for eggrolls and fish sauce on top! AMAZING! Plus you have to get the Iced Coffee with cream best ever!

I visit this restaurant annually and always more than once on each trip (at lunchtime). The service is premier and the food is good. They have a really nice selection of $5.99 lunch options that come out of the kitchen before you can finish your appetizer. These selections are sometimes not as good as the fresh made entrees, but the speed is what I like. Located near Williams Arena at the U of M, try to get there before noon when University employees seem to get there in large groups. Entrees are all pretty much less than $10.

The restaurant is very busy, and the service is excellent. The restaurant offers a variety of selections. While many of the entrees are similiar to other asian restaurants, I tried the soup. The bowl was quite large and very filling. The soup had rice noodles, prok, shrimp, and tamarind.

Have been eating at Bona since 1996 and it has never disappointed me. Where else can you get great ethnic, home-cooked food for less than $10. The lunch specials are fantastic and portions for dinner are quite generous. Plus, talk with any of the servers when you have a chance, as most of them have worked there for 5+ years. It's a great locally-owned, family-run eatery.
