There are only 3 tables in the place. You have to get on her email list to know when she is open and serving - reservation is a must. Just tell her pork, chicken, beef, whatever and she cooks it up family style. She also runs a booth at every local festival (every other weekend in the season) and sells... More

Kim is a great lady and serves up some great Vietnamese dishes. If you want to feel like someone cooked you a meal just for you, this is the place.

Though residents of Rockport we'd never visited Fai Foo before, mainly because of the shady strip center it's in. I tend to be an adventurous yet selective eater and there aren't but a couple of places to eat here that I enjoy. We're glad to add a new restaurant to our list! The food was freshly made to order and... More

Ms. Kim is a wonderful lady who creates her Asian cuisine in a small kitchen while you wait in an area that is part dining and part sewing establishment. She is a seamstress also! See is delighted to make any dish either off the menu or a creation that you discuss with her. Honestly folks if you love Asian food... More

I have been to this little spot a few times now and have had mixed experiences. I adore pho, and the first time I went here she served up the best Pho Ga I quite possibly have ever had. The next time it was less than stunning, as the chicken was quite dry. But the next time it was fairly... More

Absolute best Asian food I have ever eaten. Loved the spicy lemon grass chicken and the lo mein. Wife said the egg rolls were the best she has had and I agree. A must try restaurant in rockport.

It's tough to be a vegetarian in a fishing town so we don't eat out a lot. I'm also kind of fussy about Asian vegetables. So...we've seen Fai Foo's restaurant and seen them at festivals but had not tried them until today. At the HummerBird Festival we ordered the veggie crepes and they were tailored to order. Very fresh veggies... More

If you eat enough pho, you quickly figure out that the best places are the somewhat dodgy looking ones, that smell somewhat funny due to the spices and ingredients. This is one of those places. The food here is excellent, perfectly seasoned (especially the pho ga) and very authentic. If you're looking for a Vietnamese version of McDonalds, go to... More
