Great Vietnamese food....only second to Mai's...this especially for the atmosphere and the decor.....some of their plates are as good if not better than Mai's. Service is not as good as Mai's but still acceptable.....

I have been dining here since the 80's and NEVER had a bad meal. Menu is huge. My favorite is the chargrill pork on rice. Wonderful for a late night lite bite as well.

I've been eating at Van Loc's for years. Same great food at the same location. Good prices as well. Try the chicken lemongrass.

One of the most dependable Vietnamese restaurants with a varied menu and fast, efficient service. Simple, tasty dishes served up for a quick lunch or leisurely dinner.

The service was horrid at best and this was an afternoon visit between lunch and dinner! The food tasted like it came of a steam table.

Used to come here when I lived in Here. The pho was completely bland with no side garnishments. Ive had better packaged pho. The summer rolls didnt even have basil in them. To bad. I was really looking forward to dinner here. Wont come back....More

Their signature dish is the garlic fried tofu. Highly recommended. It's an amazing dish. Their service can be spotty, but it's generally acceptable.
