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.

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

I've never written a review about a restaurant, but I felt it necessary after visiting Lang Van. The food and service were both outstanding! Everything was so fresh and the attention to detail in every dish was incredible. Had hot pot, pineapple fried rice served in a pineapple, and the turmeric pancakes were out of this world. If you like... More

Returned to Lang Van after years away and we wondered why. This small restaurant is exceptional. Everything from service to its fresh, delicious food rates five stars. My wife had the special - ginger shrimp with tofu. Tofu was "fantastic, crispy and flavorful on the outside," she said. Gigantic menu but don't miss the spring rolls and peanut sauce.
