We've been going to Truc's for over 30 years, and have never had a bad meal or bad service there. My companion always orders the Vietnamese shrimp roll and Shaking Beef, as he's crazy about them. I, meanwhile, have tried several different appetizers and entrees...More

We wanted a window seat but they refused, although many tables were empty. Upon our protests they gave in. Chicken dish way overcooked and tough. Ditto wife's "happy pancakes" with shrimp. Few shrimp. Waitress couldn't understand what I meant by "beer on tap," and "beer...More

Wonderful ambience. It appears to be a family business and the attention to diners, the food and the decor is wonderful to experience. If you get there early, you can enjoy the wonderful grounds and all the ceramics. Food was authentic and delicious.

We have been going to Truc's Orient Express for more than 15 years and it is invariably a special experience. Each of the dishes are carefully prepared with tasty but not overpowering or overly spicy sauces. We do have our favorites like the summer rolls...More

In fairness, it was a Saturday night and the restaurant was crowded. They claimed they were short staffed. However, we waited 40 min. to order our food. The appetizers were mediocre and the entrees were poor. My five-spice chicken was tiny, burned, and left me...More

We have been having wonderful Vietnamese food in this family owned and operated restaurant for years. We go here just for the summer rolls that are freshly made and loaded with shrimp, vegetables, mint and rice sticks. The owners are lovely people who enjoy their...More

I don't understand all the negative reviews-we were here on a Sunday evening for dinner and could not have been more pleased. Service was excellent, our water glasses were constantly refilled, and the setting was delightful. We had the summer rolls and hot and sour...More
