First time visit on recommendation from a local. had the Pad Thai. service was fine and timely. Dish was hot with fresh ingredients. i ordered 2 star spicy and the dish was at the edge of my comfort level, so don't over order your star rating. Atmosphere is so-so, but meal was worth it. two other locations. I plan to... More

The fried egg rolls were so so with a honey dip. How about a choice of dips? Plum sause? The Pho was also just so so. The broth almost had a bitter taste. I'll go back to the other place just around the corner.

What a shame that a lovely-looking restaurant such as this, should have such miserable food and awkward service. I don't blame the server, it was his first day, but he clearly wasn't trained in anything. We received our water and then waited 15 minutes to have our order taken. After another 10 minutes the appetizers arrived, one of which was... More

I first ate here around 15 years ago and it was good then and even better now. They've remodeled and it's more comfortable and larger. The food is excellent - I've never had a bad meal here. One of my favorites is the Saigon Crepe so give it a try. It's a bit messy since you roll the crepe and... More

Ordered 3 items, Chicken Pad Thai, Sweet and Sour, as well as regular chicken teriyaki. It was a to-go order, when we got home, a couple of minutes away, there's no way of telling which was which, besides the numbers on top of the boxes. Pad Thai was cold, sweet and sour was nothing but meat and curry sauce, and... More

I have been going to this place for years and while I have witnessed the restaurant expand along with the prices on the menu, I would still recommend it. The absolute best dish here is the Crispy Eggplant. It may be one of the best dishes in Tacoma.

Friends rave, but when I have been there, the food has been adequate, service fine, and atmosphere a little tired. Perhaps the competition has risen up to meet it.

It's not a very nice neighborhood, but inside the decor is relaxing and the food is quite good. There are better Vietnamese places in the area, but this one has good variety, nice presentation, and an all-around pleasant feel. Service was nothing special, nor were the prices. I've gone twice. The appetizers and salads are particularly good.

I just want it to be a little better. It's good, but not good enough to drive over to hilltop to eat. Tried the one in Gig Harbor and it wasn't great either. It's like they cook Vietnamese food for white people, like they're afraid to be too authentic.
