The food was very good and reasonably priced. The staff was very warm and welcoming and was certain to point out items that were specially made. I am looking forward to this being my go-to place in the Heights for Asian food.

I first started going to this restaurant over two years ago and go back there every time I visit Houston. The mongolian beef is my favorite and they have the best hot and sour soup I have ever eaten. Great casual dining

Great place to eat if you want different noodles to satisfy your taste buds. They offer udon, pad Thai, flat, lo mein, etc noodles. I also especially enjoy the luncheon specials which I admit is very good. The Mongolian and Hunan dish are my favorite because the of the spicy taste. Overall, I would highly recommend this place.

We go for lunch or dinner at least a couple times a month and we've never been disappointed. My daughter is vegetarian so this is a good place for her since most dishes can be made as a vegetarian option.

I had my first beef Pho at the Heights Asian Cafe when they first opened up years ago and went back recently for more. The Pho really hits the spot if you're under the weather and the portion is huge so you'll have enough for two meals or if you're really hungry, one huge meal. The beef is sliced thinly... More

This is a small, quiet place in the Heights with very fresh Asian (Chinese and Vietnamese) food. I love the Vermicelli Bowl Combo with Vietnamese Egg Rolls and the Cafe Sau Da (Vietnamese Iced Coffee--perfect for a HOT Houston summer day). The Boy likes the General Tso's Chicken with brown rice. The wait staff is always prompt and pleasant.

This restaurant has friendly service ( though sometimes they seem to be TOO quick and you have a bill before you eat! I enjoy the fried rice, chicken wings and sometimes the sesame chicken.
