We are long-time fans of Lang Van. I believe it could be easily overlooked due to the sketch aspect of the area. Staff remembers our names and service is amazing!!! I've never been disappointed with the food but if you want a decent Chardonnay, take your own.

I had lunch here for the first time with friends. We shared great appetizers. I had a wonderful chicken based soup. The owner asked if we had any questions then came back to see if we were satisfied. It is a small place so get there early.

We were fortunate to be able to go out for dinner with a relative who visits this restaurant often. They welcomed our relative as if family! We arrived for a late dinner around 8:30 on a Thursday and they were packed, which says it all! I would say it was the best Vietnamese meal I've ever had!

Looking for Asian style food... Found a great review of their food and decided to try it. We found that the review was understated!!!! It was FANTASTIC. A vast Vietnamese menu to choose from. Food was excellent and the server explained the differences. Main entree ranged from $9 - $15. Place is small so recommend you get there early(6-6:30 pm)... More

I love this restaurant - affordable, good Vietnamese dishes - mostly pho-based. Unpretentious décor. HOWEVER, they charged my credit card $50 more than the receipt amount. I really do not know how this could be a mistake. To management: defrauding your customers is not good for business, particularly in the era of social media.

I've eaten here for years and have neglected to review it. My bad. This place is soooo good. I ate here this week with my youngest child who is a newbie to Vietnamese food and here is what happened: we explained that she had never eaten Vietnamese food and the waitress smiled and started asking questions. After about a minute... More

The first time I went to this restaurant I explained that I am a vegan and I have Celiac's disease, and the woman who own the restaurant asked me, "what do you like?" I said I like pad thai. She said, I will make you something you will love! And she was absolutely right! I have no idea what it... More

The food is awesome, but the service is some of the friendliest you will find anywhere. Just a great experience. The pineapple fried rice is fantastic.

Small restaurant on the sketchy side of town, small parking lot extra parking in the back. The privacy fence around the back parking area gives a some comfort. Staff are friendly the food is fresh and phenomenal. Please don't judge the book by its cover or you will miss out. Prepare for a bit of a wait. However it is... More
