Good Food, Slow Service

Posted on 11 / 10 / 2013

The server was nice and accommodating , suggested all modifications to 'veganize' our meal. We ordered t thege almond tea, it's made with milk so we got coconut milk instead, it was delicious, very almondy with the bittersweet mix of green tea and coconut that made it very interesting.
We ordered the vegetarian fried spring rolls, with rice wrapper instead of egg; these were salty and greasy, not very good.
The vegetarian stir fry was also made vegan for us; was a bit greasy but flavorful and very fresh broccoli, bok choi, carrots and cauliflower with fried tofu; it improved with sriracha sauce.
The vegetarian curry on rice was ok, lots of vegetables -same mix as the stir fry-.
The service was pretty slow, it took about 10 min for the server to take our order from the time we sat down and 10 more to get the tea. Shortly after they brought up the spring rolls and the main dishes at the same time. We arrived early for dinner so this might have been the reason why service was slow, other people after us got served a bit faster.
$35 for everything makes it a good value. Will come back and try different options

Pros: Food, Vegan Options
Cons: Slow, Need To Request Veganizing

Vegan Vietnamese Options

The staff was very knowledgeable about which items in the vegetarian section of the menu were vegan. We had spring rolls, salad rolls, curry, and tofu veggie noodle soup. They were all good. The spring rolls are normally made with an egg wrapper, but if you ask they will make vegan ones with rice wrappers instead.
