Style and substance meet the taste buds as every meal we have had here is better than the last! Seriously can't wait until we go here again so I can try yet another sauce that make smile with every bite. Is this for everyone? No, just people who like enthusiastic, knowledgeable service, unpretentious atmosphere, a family-run business and great food... More

Having supported this restaurant since their very early days in downtown Reading, I have reached wit's end. The food can be pretty good, but they have some off nights. Tonight I ordered take-out for 6, left a 22% tip when I picked it up, and arrived home only to discover that 2 entrees had been omitted. On calling the restaurant... More

We are here based on the stellar reviews and were really disappointed. Some of the most bland Vietnamese food either of has ever had. The hostess was slumped over at the front when we arrived and barely managed to peel herself up to go and clean a table for us (we arrived after the dinner rush). Why on earth she... More

I got the vermicelli bowl with chicken shrimp and vegetables. It was light and refreshing with just a little sauce and plenty of meat and vegetables. Also got the egg roll which was very good. Service was attentive and the atmosphere was modern and hip.

My wife and I have eaten here a few times... I always get the same thing - and don't like to venture out much if I've found something I like.... She's tried a few things on the menu - sometimes she likes them... sometimes she doesn't care for them. I decided I would venture out last night and get the... More

1st time food was over cooked. Tried it again with friends. Nice ambiance, nice staff and a different seafood dish was rubbery. Sorry will not be back

I keep trying to give this place a chance and I've tried many things on the menu but the only good thing they have going on is their soup. If you want soup then I'd check it out.

OK, I am an idiot. Every once in a while I am dying for some Vietnamese food and I give this place another chance. I love South East Asian food. I ordered a takeout noodle soup a week ago. I cannot tell you how upset I am. I was shocked to start eating it and realize it must have been... More

One of my favorite restaurants by far. The food is deliciously fresh. Try something that you have never tried before and I think you will be pleasantly surprised. My favorites include the chicken cabbage salad and the chicken with curry and lemongrass. The squid is also incredible. Definitely recommend.

This is one of the three restaurants owned by the same family in the Reading area. The servers are friendly and will answer any and all questions about the food. Vietnamese food is different than Chinese food. I find the flavors clean and distinguishable. When I order the same item it maybe plated a little different. The Reading Eagle has... More
