My 24 year son always chooses someplace different for his birthday, this year it was Doan's Vietnamese. It was wonderful! I had the caramelized fish, Eric the seafood soup, my husband had seafood pad thai and mom the chicken lemongrass. Everything was great and the service was excellant.

Having driven by many times there were three of us that grab lunch frequently and decided that we needed to give it a try. Service was good, Restaurant was clean and build out works. We asked waiter what we should order as none of us had been there. He helped our vegetarian friend and all of us enjoyed our meal.... More

There's are three Vietnamese Restaurants we like to alternate between - Saigon Palace (an old favorite) Vietnam Grille (excellent Pho broth) and Doan's. The presentation and execution at Doan's is excellent. I would prefer a spicier beef broth but that's not a huge detail. The grilled meatball rolls are awesome and I like the fact that they offer items like... More

Not a very big restaurant and quite good old Vietnamese type café décor. Service staff were attentive and served fast. They accepted credit card. I ordered the Regular sized Pho. This is their large portion. I find the soup a tad too salty. The beansprouts also do not look that fresh. Despite putting in the mint and lemon, I could... More

Excellent food in a clean small neighborhood restaurant. We were visiting friends in Charlotte who recommended this enjoyable eatery. We were hungry in mid afternoon and we're delighted with the scrumptious bowls, Pad Thai, Egg Rolls, Lemon Grass Chicken put before us. We gladly ate every bite. Service was friendly, accommodating and efficient. I'm going to change my rating to... More

The best Pho I had outside of "Little Saigon" district in LA and Viet Nam itself. Doan's is a small, but clean Vietnamese restaurant, with good and friendly service and reasonable prices. If you have the appetite, try to combine a small Pho with a Yellow (shrimp) Pancake and you will have an unforgettable meal.

Doan's is an authentic Vietnamese restaurant with tasty yummy foods. First, try their avocado shake, it's the best anywhere hands down. Every time we go there, all members of my family, yeap including the parents, have to order a few! Next, order their egg rolls, they are wonderfully crunchy and tasty. then, order the Banh Xeo and/or Bun Mang Vit... More

This is an unassuming place with a decidedly un-Vietnamese name tucked away in a nondescript shopping center, but it's worth the effort to get here. The restaurant is the kind where you know the food must be good -- the night we went there were lots of Vietnamese folks there plus just a few Caucasians. Three of us shared the... More

I ate here based on other TripAdvisor recommendations, and I’m glad I did. The food was tasty, authentic, and came out faster than I expected. The hot chili oil was among the best I’ve tasted.
