Food is good, Service and Facility not so much - Edit

I got the Kho To with Eggplant and Tofu. Flavors were delicious. It was pretty salty, but that is probably just a characteristic of the dish, which I’d never had before.

When we came in the door, we were told to just sit where ever we want. They saw we had a baby, but did not offer a high chair. The people who came in after us were waited on before we were. I asked for a water from our waiter to go along with my hot tea, but was not brought it until I asked the other wait staff for one. We sat, finished, for a good 15 min. He walked by our table several times and never asked us how the food was or offer our check. We had to ask him. There were 2 people working the front and only about 6 or so tables. I feel like this would not be a difficult load to handle.

On top of that the floors were pretty disgusting. Not like a “we didn’t sweep after the last person” kind or gross... more like a “we haven’t swepped or mopped this part of the floor in a good 6 months. Everything else seemed ok, though.

At the end of the day, I would still go back, just don’t expect good customer service...

Pros: good food, prices

Cons: Service, Facility

Be careful. - Edit

We were interested in trying La Que for quite a while. I was happy when we finally got around to it. Nice place. Quiet. We tell the server that we want everything vegan. She says "vegan?" So we go ahead and tell her one of the items we are considering. And say, we want no animal products , no milk, no egg, not fish sauce. She says yes. Only coconut milk in the curry. Then the same thing with the noodles. When the food comes, it's just dropped off, no checking to see if we need anything. I get up to find her and say that we ordered brown rice, not white. She goes to get it. Meanwhile, after a bite each, we're looking at the noodles and what looks like real chicken. It's been a long time since we've eaten chicken, so we're not sure. The brown rice is dropped off without even a second to catch attention and ask our concerns. Again, I get up to find her and say the chicken looks too realistic, is it chicken or mock? She says real chicken. I'll fix it. no apologies. We are both sick the next day. It's too bad the curry was so delicious, because I Don't think we'll be back.

Pros: quiet, clean

Cons: put chicken in our noodles

Nice little place - Edit

I like the fact that having the mock meat or the tofu is actually cheaper than the meat, which reflects the truth rather than "this is healthy so we're charging extra."

You can sub any of the meat with the mock meat or tofu, which is pretty cool. I had some rice vermicelli spicy bowel thing I can't pronounce the name of. I think the mock meat is made of gluten, it was very chewy but soft, not in bad way.It was very good, and so was the veggie dumplings I had, the dip broth was very flavorful.

My friend that tagged along enjoyed her chosen lunch item (real chicken broccoli thing) as well. I shall be visiting again.

Pros: Price, Options

Cons: parking

A little strange, but... - Edit

...still a great new restaurant in Louisville. Lots of veggie/vegan options, and the portions are huge! A very good value. The service is a little weird - I don't think the data from the waiter or waitress gets back to the kitchen in tact sometimes, or the kitchen staff just doesn't understand it. And, it is somewhat slow. However, the food is great, tea is included with the combo meals, and they have mock chicken! I'm still going to support them, and hope they can work out the kinks to become of one of Bardstown Road's best Asian/veggie options. The potential is there, they just need to follow through.

Pros: vegan friendly, mock chicken, location

Cons: service

xsamx 22 Feb 2013 - Update April 2010: They are now deep-frying the mock meats, making them even tastier! General Tso's mock chicken (or tofu) is incredible!
