Review of Viet Kitchen

Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 April 2017

Pros: Nice atmosphere, plenty of parking. Chả giò is served 3 per order instead of the usual 2 found in most other Vietnamese restaurants.

Cons: I ordered Chả giò (fried spring rolls). The wrapping was thin and crisp as it should be but the filling was not up to expectations. There was an ample amount of ground meat in the roll but very little else leaving it rather "dry" and very definitely needing the dipping sauce. The lettuce and greens traditionally supplied with the rolls were sparse indeed, 2 small pieces of lettuce, 2 stalks of mint and a few strands of parsley...barely enough for 2 rolls and certainly not enough for 3 rolls.
The "Vietnamese curry" was "light and thin" with some cubed meat (very, very dry) assorted veg...carrots, onions and some potatoes (the potatoes tasted as though they had been roasted then refrigerated before making it into the curry) . The main taste in the curry was white and black pepper. It should have tasted more of "curry." The portion, unlike the "Chả giò" was not ample....

Service was just "OK" with no checking back once the food was served, water not refilled...this, in spite of the fact that the restaurant was only about 1/2 full at the "late lunch" time frame in which I was served.

Several other diners were served large bowls of phở ... looked good...perhaps I should have ordered that....
Fried spring rolls and Vietnamese Curry, no beverage $14.

Since the pho craze began, we had been looking for a good bowl of pho. We found it! The portion size is great at the restaurant as well as if it's ordered to go. The service is always great. The spring rolls are fantastic as well.

The food is delicious and presented very nicely, the staff is quick and friendly. Food came out very fast, even though the restaurant was over half full. Prices are reasonable. Bbq shrimp noodles & Viet egg rolls. Yum.

Its been quite a while since I have eaten here. I had the house stir fry with beef and chicken. It came with rice noodles. I asked to omit the fish sauce. There are vegetarian options too. My sisters had curry, and pho, which they said was spicy and tasty. The food tasted fresh, and flavorful. I do not think they serve alcohol here.

Finally stopped in here, had a great curry, Pho and some appetizers. Well worth it, food was great and the service was quick even though they were busy.
