Daily lunch buffet available dine in or take out. Great selection of items, but you need to get there early so you don't miss out on certain things that may run out. Food is always fresh and tasty! If you aren't in the mood for the buffet, other menu items are just as good. The pho soup is delish and... More

I've been here with my family a few times for dinner and today I went by myself for lunch mid day. While most were getting the buffet I decided on the pho with chicken and glass noodles. It did not disappoint. I was served quickly. Soup was hot, tasty and loved adding the sprouts, basil and a squeeze of fresh... More

If u r looking for a tasty food don't try their buffet portions r small food not fresh and they don't have good service i.e. Not cleaning the tables and taking dishes in a timely manner. I tried their dinner and should say the difference in the quality is huge

I ordered the tri noodle bowl (sliced pork, beef, tripe) broth was lovely (excepting waiter forgotten my plate of fresh greens of watercress and stuff til I almost finished my bowl. I should have prompted the waiter earlier but I got carried away with... More

Living here in California with all sorts of Asian food is not a question. But a small town in Massachusetts with a small Viet-Thai restaurant is a plus. The food is great and the price is very affordable. The restaurant is clean and I was here on dinner time packed with people. Highly recommended!

Viet Thai is a staple in Lowell, I have been going there for a couple years now and their food is always very flavorful and filling. Good prices, nice people and these amazing fruit shakes. Try the Pad Thai, Drunken Noodles and their amazing eggrolls. Located right on Merrimack street next to another amazing place "Galeria Cafe" :)

The excellent food rekindled fond memories of the meals we enjoyed during our two Vietnam trips. The Fresh Spring Rolls, as well as No.84 - Broccoli with chicken and No. 87 - Cashew Nut with chicken, were among the best we've ever had. The prices are very reasonable considering the quality of the food. The above plus two Cokes came... More

Its one thing to thoroughly enjoy food when your starving! However, I went to this graduation dinner WITHOUT an appetite and no intentions of eating. I ended up sampling so many plates that I CANNOT wait to go out for dinner. The steak and white rice was so flavorful and LEAN. NO FATTY mean to war with! The yellow curry... More

I went for dinner recently for the first time. I admit that I was concerned when I walked by and saw the spare room with lots of empty tables, but, recalling some of the other reviews, went in. There was a steady stream of people coming in for takeout and seating, so it really was not as empty as it... More

We're addicted to their lunch buffet. It's the best Asian buffet in the area, and very reasonably priced for the quality and selection. Favorites are spring rolls, hot and sour soup, fried chicken, pad thai, and the variety of chicken, shrimp, beef and vegetarian dishes. Everything is fresh and delicious. We live an hour away, yet we'll drive just to... More
