A group of 20 friends ate at A Dong tonight. The food and service were both excellent. All of our meals came out very quickly, very nicely prepared and very hot. The menu is very extensive and would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Man do I love this place. There is a full range of vegetarian options and the largest menu ever. I would recommend 16C and 33C as my all time faves BUT really I don't think I have ever had something that I haven't enjoyed.
