I probably go there once a month for lunch. The portion sizes are not huge, but plenty for lunch. Everything is made fresh when you order it, so it comes out piping hot. Both the Chinese and the Vietnamese filed is very well done. Their $5.95 lunch specials are quick, hot, and delicious.

Enjoy Thay & Vietnamese food at a tipical restaurant. If in a group, ask for a "family dinner" option and you will be able to choose from a variety of Asiatic dishes. Curry chiken option is very spicy and delicious. Summer rolls and spring rolls are mandatory. Staff should be better trained, but that does not compromise the experience. Only... More

Vietnam Gardens maybe doesn't look like much from the outside or the inside. But if you can get past its looks, you will find some great food. Service is a little slow. I think it might be because they cook most everything from scratch when you order. We had very nice and fresh summer rolls, and the entrees ( from... More

You might say that this is a hole in the wall place. It doesn't look too much from outside. Interior decoration is not that great, either. However, food is very good and reasonable. Friendly and great service. If you have any questions what to order, the server has many ideas and recommendations. Spring roll and pho tasted great. If you... More

If you are looking for fresh delicous true Vietnamese food this is the place!

Vietnam Garden is one of the best places to eat in town! I love the chicken lemon grass, summer rolls and the pho! The service is fast and friendly. I eat there at least once a week!!

I wasn't expecting much from this restaurant and i didn't get it either. Should not have gone in when I saw the outside. It's a hole in the wall located in a unkept street corner. Seating: stained ceiling tile. Roaches. Food: The fish soup was sour and tasteless. The beef with mushroom was basically cooked with only oyster sauce and... More
