I have visited Tan Tan (pronounced Tun Tun) for almost 20 years. I have seen this restaurant grow from a small "hole in the wall" that only took cash to a very large nice Vietnamese Restaurant. The Rice Cake is to die for, along with all their other dishes. This is a must attend venue for anyone who wants Asian... More

My wife and her friend picked up some take-away late night food for us on a Saturday night after we'd been out to Clear Lake boating. It took nearly an hour to get the food, and the order was only about 1/2 right. Apparently there was a language barrier which added to the delay, and probably part of the mix-up... More

This was a great recommendation from a friend! The food as great, I just wish I could have communicated a bit better ith the staff because I'm not sure I was able to explain the speciality dishes I wanted. I was told they served a great Vietmanese soup but when I tried to ask the waitress she said no such... More

Second time I have been here. As like the first time, there is a good selection of options to choose from, and the food is very good. This time we started with egg drop soup, which was very good, then followed up with the three flavors with vegetables. Another good choice, just enough for two to share. This dish consisted... More

We have been going to this restaurant for so many years now. The food is always consistent. We love the egg noodles and the rice cake. They know how to do it right.

Years ago, my late husband and I experienced food in the location at Westheimer, got diaherra. Never went back, on 6/4, my friend suggested this place, so I gave it benefit of doubt, went in, came home with more severe diaherra, worse, got carry-out dishes for my family, they got diaherra too.

The décor is what you would expect for an Asian restaurant. Tables and the view of the kitchen were clean. The wait staff was knowledgeable and customer focused. Of the three dishes we had, Pho Chicken, Three Flavors Rice and Banh Bo Chien, they all lacked the real punch of fresh ingredients. We even tried a lychee desert but found... More

Good place for Chinese dinner. Personally, i like to eat egg noodle with seafood cuisine, fried rice. There seem having no space between the seat, just fine restroom. Nice service and having receptionist.

Dirty place. I asked for another glass after the first one being dirty. Second one was no better. Then I realized everything around are dirty. Food is no good. There are much better options around here in China Town.

We went to this restaurant expecting to be a full Chinese place or at least something close to Asian places, we found out that this place is more Americanized and we did not like the food nor the prices we recommend instead to go Sinh Sinh
