I had heard good things about this restaurant, but in all the time that I've lived in Anchorage had never been in. I had gone by a couple of times, but they were always closed so be sure to check their hours and days of operation before deciding on this place. The service was very friendly and attentive. The food... More

I wanted to go to Ray's forever. I finally went. I was disappointed - it was not as good as all of the hype promised. I had heard for years, how good Ray's is. It was deemed the place to go for Vietnamese food. I found it adequate. Perhaps because I was lucky enough to have a good friend in... More

Ray's is a great Restuarant and the staff are very professional and friendly. The variety of good is amazing and so is the taste. A must place to dine for lunch or dinner. Not open on the weekends.

I drive by this place at least 5 times a week and have never stopped. We went for dinner last week and I will definitely return. There were so many choices on the menu. I had the pork chops and they were yummy and way too much too eat in one sitting. The vegetables were perfect. Service was fantastic and... More

Ray's Place is always a treat! Haven't had a subpar meal yet. It's a little pricier than other Vietnamese restaurants in town but well worth it. Instead of getting a bowl of pho I like to order an entree with a bowl of broth for just a little more so I can enjoy the best of both worlds and try... More

I really don't like writing negative reviews, but I must in this case. We have been patrons off and on at this restaurant since before it moved from Tudor Road, and it has until recently offered really worthwhile, good quality Asian food. Not sure what happened, but none of the 4 of us found our dinners to be very good... More

Hungry? Try the pork chops. Two of them perfectly cooked with vegetables, rice and spices. Tired? Go over to the bar side and slide into a booth. It's dark and cool. Order beef soup. The most fragrant broth covers small slices of beef, and a whole plate of fresh bean sprouts, celantro, slices of jalapeño pepper, and a sprig of... More
