Respond to Review of Thuyen Vien
Review: We'd been waiting for months and months wondering when it was finally going to open. But you know what? The wait was more than worth it. The food we ordered was absolutely delicious and the owner, Si, was the friendly and gracious host. Not to mention very informative and helpful with the menu and in describing how to put together our "Soy Fish" w/dill and special sauce items in our bowls. Oh and let me tell you the flavors of this dish are amazing. There's just no other way to describe it. A sizzling platter of the seafood mixture arrives at your table. You layer your bowl with the previously delivered (torn) pieces of green leaf lettuce, cilantro, mint top with some rice noodles and spoon on some of the special sauce and finally add on the seafood mixture. Oh don't forget to add some of the homemade oily chili sauce. Mix it all up with chopsticks and prepare to be blown away when you take that first bite! The oily chili sauce makes all of the flavors of this dish come together perfectly. The other dishes we enjoyed were the unique Banana Flower Tacos appetizers and the Fried Rice Thailand Style. Both were excellent as well. Absolutely can't wait to come back and try many many more dishes. Everything on the menu looks and sounds so appetizing and inviting. Believe me when I say that this is one of those rare restaurants where if one could afford to eat there everyday, one most definitely would! Si and his family have created a cute little ambiance as well. Clean, fresh and relaxing. We just can't say enough about Thuyen Vien except to say we wish you all the success in the world with the hope of many many great years of great dining experiences.
