Trieu Chau has been a regular stop of mine for over 10 years. Always fresh food, always friendly (and quick) service. My personal favorites: pho with beef and/or the beef salad— both best in class. The beef salad features a large bowl filled with [some] lettuce, fresh cucumber, pickled radishes and carrots, [lots of] rice noodles, and then very yummy... More

My wife and I came to try this place on a recommendation from a friend. We are very happy we did. The food was amazing and will definitely be back again. Also ordered egg rolls to try and was not disappointed.

My friend and I both had stir-fried style lunches. Hers was chicken and peapods in a light brown sauce with rice and mine was what they call lo mein, but which I have known as Vietnamese chow mein with soft noodle. Chinese lo mein is almost entirely fried noodles with very few vegetables; this was loaded with fresh vegetables and... More

I ordered Bun Bo Hue and it was okay, not bad but not so good. My husband had Pho and it was better than my Bun bo hue. The waitresses are not the friendliest but maybe because I visited on a weekend and the restaurant was quite busy so they weren't very helpful and friendly.

We have hit this place a hundred times over the last few years. Kids love the spring rolls, me and the missus love the Phở.

Trieu Chau is very close to authentic Vietnamese and I would go there for pho or vermicelli salad. I have been here several times and I still like it for how fresh everything tastes. I still like their vermicelli salad over pho. I think I had better pho but regardless it's a matter of preference still I would rate it... More

This simple place is nearly always busy and there is a reason for that. The food is delicious. Where it is a Pho you are after or just a regular Chinese style dish, the food is always full of flavor, tasty, and served fast. The place could use a bit more cleaning but don't skip it - this is the... More

Friends and I try to go at least once a week. Everything on the menu is fabulous and reasonably priced. I haven't been disappointed yet.

I LOVE this place and I love their soup and cream cheese wontons. They are quick and friendly and most of them know my order before I even say anything. GREAT customer service. As a previous waitress, I appreciate the way they do business.

Seafood rice noodle soup on a beautiful Friday afternoon! Nothing extra needed, this was a fine example of delicious authentic tasty ness! If you're a fan of good pho you'll enjoy this place.
