It is a pleasant dining hall. The servings are large. Good price for the vegetarian dishes and there is a variety of vegetarian options.

We came for lunch on Saturday when they don't have a true lunch menu. Regardless, we enjoyed the spring rolls, hot and sour soup, sesame chicken and a V Bowl with beef, chicken and shrimp. All was delicious and we ate our plates clean. Thank you!!

My go to place for over twenty years is in a downhill slide. My last lunch will be my last. Restaurant was mostly empty on Monday for lunch. Even so, it took 40 minutes to get an egg roll appetizer. My entree - a lunch special - came out cold. Partners Vietnamese fajitas never came. Even though the restaurant was... More

This is supposedly one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in Houston. If so, the others must be terrible. I ordered Hunan Beef and asked for it to be extra hot but I could not taste any pepper or "heat". The beef tasted like it had been boiled rather than stir-fried. My wife's Orange Chicken was in large pieces that had... More

Food was good here and plenty of choices to choose from. Come here if you want some comfort food and you won't go wrong. However, do note their portion is very big so be careful not to over order! Service was great and attentive too!

We had a good meal here. Not the best Asian food but more than acceptable. The restaurant is very large and the menu reasonably extensive

Very nice atmosphere & decor. Appreciated sample dishes for customers to see before you're seated. We went for lunch and were promptly seated and taken care of. Food was served very quickly. Our food was fresh, tasted delicious, very flavorful, very good portion sizes for lunch. We were asked to complete a survey regarding our meal & experience and were... More
