“good choice”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

reasonably priced and fast option for lunch or dinner. Friendly close knit staff that will depart from the menu if you like. Food is tasty and skillfully prepared. Asian tea is excellent

“Great Vietnamese fix while visiting Mt Pleasant”
Reviewed 30 October 2013 via mobile

We were spending a few days In Mt Pleasant in prep for moving here in a couple months. I saw this place on tripadvisor & was beyond excited to see they offer pho, as it is none sister where we currently live. We visited here for dinner on a weeknight & as others have mentioned this is in an almost hidden location, in a strip mall, at the intersection of 17 & 41 on the corner where cvs & sonic are located.

we ordered spring rolls & dumplings, both of which were pretty good. we also ordered the London broil pho, which (for some reason) was missing scallions & onions (but they were cleaning up & about to close so we didn't ask why). even with the absent scallions & onions, the pho was good. not the best I've ever had & certainly not the worst (pho is an experience very dear to my Asian heart), but this place certainly fit the bill for someone like me who has been going through a major pho-withdrawl. We also loved that they allow you to bring your own beer/wine, and have outdoor seating. The service was good, but the real highlight of our visit was meeting the owner as we were finishing up. we enjoyed our conversation with him & the info he provided on the area, his personal background & his restaurant.

“BYOB and enjoy!”
Reviewed 26 October 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.

“No frills, outstanding food”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 via mobile

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.
