Small and bustling restaurant. Had to wait a while for drinks and food but the atmosphere is friendly. I was excited to try bun bao hue. So good! The fried banana dessert was also delicious. Great local restaurant.

This was our first visit, but not our last. I would definitely make it a point to stop here each time I visit Monterey. There is quite a variety of food offered. We had Stir fried egg noodles, Mandarin chicken wings with rice which I would recommend. The staff is friendly.

Very efficient and quick service. Fresh food (with lots of vegetables), their soups are fantastic! The location is good and the value for money is excellent.

This place was right in the parking lot of our hotel so considering it was late, it was the perfect place to go. It was fairly good but I wouldn't say anything special. I had ordered a special drink and it took quite a while to get.

This Vietnamese restaurant was close to our hotel, and that was my reason to visit it and the love of the Vietnamese pancake. Unfortunately, my favorite dish which is the second one after Pho soup, wasn't on their menu. My partner chose the Stir-Fried Egg Noodles and was very satisfied with it. My choice was Stir fry snow peas ,... More

They may lack in some areas but they do the bun bao hue complete justice. Great soup!! Super "ethnic" looking animal parts in this soup. Wonton soup is good too but ask for an extra serving of wonton. Comes with some chicken parts, few shrimp as some other random pieces.

Chopstix advertises itself as a Vietnamese restaurant and sure enough it offers Pho soup and other signature Vietnamese dishes. I chose egg noodles which are found in many south east Asian countries like Malaysia. My partner stuck to 2 glasses of milk because she wasn't hungry, recovering from a long flight. My egg noodles were very good, coming with a... More

This where the locals eat and now we know why. Everything is made fresh and is also delicious. The prices are great the food is wonderful. Try the yellow curry chicken platter. To. Die. For. Bowls of soups & pho are exceptional. Great prices. Great service. All good.

This unassuming Vietnamese restaurant serves up delicious Vietnamese fare. The pho, rice, and other cuisines are really great. Their snacks like french fries (only USD2) and calamari are things you gotta try! What really struck me is the improvement in customer service and cleanliness over the last year... the serving staff is first-class - attentive and provides great service. A... More

We were staying close by in Montereyfor two nights, Chopstix was ideal as we could walk. Our teenage daughter is vegetarian and there were lots of delicious options for her that weren't a garden burger so we went back the second evening. The bubble tea was new to us and we all fell in love with bubble tea!! Worth waiting... More
