Review of Mi Xao

Reviewed October 26, 2013

If you're going out for fine dining, this is not your place. But if you're looking for very good Vietnamese food in Mt. Pleasant, Mi Xao fits the bill. Located in a somewhat hidden strip mall, you order at the counter but the very friendly staff will bring your food to you. There are a couple of outside tables, but inside is pleasant enough. Just don't look for the wine and beer list because there isn't any. The first time we went, we were directed a couple of doors down to a neighboring pizza place to buy a beer or a glass of wine, which we then took back to Mi Xao. Interesting system, but the pizza place is obviously used to it and is happy for the business. This time we wised up and took our own bottle of wine...also acceptable. The shrimp green papaya salad was a good way to start. Both the Tom Yum Kung and the stir fry with the choose-your-own combo of rice/noodles, sauce (try the house special), and veggies/meat/shrimp were tasty entrees. This place also does a big carry out business. It's been a good experience and a great value that we'll enjoy again soon.

Unassuming location. But the food is outstanding, and at a more-than-fair price. Green papaya salad, fresh summer rolls, and rice noodles with red curry are family favorites. Absolute favorite is the lemongrass chicken or pork sandwich that they (sadly) only serve as a special on tues. (We eat there a lot). Hoping that sandwich becomes a regular menu item.

When you find Mi Xao you will be skeptical until you taste the food. A small no thrills restaurant in a strip mall with food that will wow. Summer rolls, crispy rolls and bun that rival any restaurant.

My family and I ordered a lot of take out from here last night. Everything we ordered was delicious and the portions were great. The menu is relatively limited, but apparently the whole menu is good. There's 2 guys in the open kitchen and maybe seating for 12 people. The food was ready in about 15 minutes. Really just a great meal at a fair price.
