I went here with a work colleague for lunch as it was recommend by a friend. I usually go to the Thai place over the road so thought I'd try somewhere else. The restaurant itself is cute, the staff are friendly and attentive, their menu is great with lots of choice of Vietnamese dishes & also Chinese. I had a... More

Totally casual with great food. Chinese and Vietnamese menus: I vote for the Vietnamese. Pho is wonderful. Summer rolls are excellent. An array of great appetizers too.

My wife and I try to go to Phantasia at least once a month. As this is the closest Vietnamese restaurant we are aware of, we look forward to going there for the Pho and the many delicious appetizers. We were there last evening and both of us commented on several things. Over the past few months, the condiments for... More

We've been to Phantasia often whenever a craving for Pho occurs. The food is consistently excellent including both the Vietnamese and Chinese offerings. Service is prompt and friendly. The setting in a shopping area is not fancy. However a great meal at extremely reasonable prices this a place to go while in SE CT.

We decided to meet up with some friends on a Sunday night and chose this restaurant. I have never had Vietnamese and wanted to give it a try. I brought some backup snacks for our 3 year old, just in case they didn't like the food. Well the service was EXCELLENT and fast. Partly due to their not being a... More

This is rapidly becoming a regular haunt for my wife and I. We always seem to visit during inclement weather and the complimentary hot tea is a nice touch. Extensive menu, both Vietnamese and Chinese, fast, fresh and delicious. A must if you're in the area.

We got take out on a Saturday night for 16 people and the food was quite good. The dumplings were awesome and folks really enjoyed the lo mien and crab rangoons as well.

Yes Virginia, there IS Pho in Groton. Is it as good as the pho in San Jose or Honolulu...no. But the Pho Tai was surprisingly good - one of the better bowls I've tasted in the northeastern US. As other reviews have noted the broth lacks the depth of flavor of a great pho and achieves complexity by a strong... More

One of the few Chinese places in Groton. They have an extensive Vietnamese menu which I think is what most people come for, unfortunately I went for Chinese. In any event my dish of boneless ribs, fried rice and fried shrimp was very bland. Just no flavor to the rice at all and the boneless ribs were fatty. A little... More

We only travel to this restaurant for their Vietnamese food, so cannot speak about the Chinese, but we find it to be yummy and very delicious. The Vietnamese Pancake, as much as we love it, can be inconsistent. When it is prepared right, it is very, very good. However, when it is not made correctly, it can be awful. Still... More
