Service was excellent! We were seated and served right away even on a busy Friday evening, however we did have reservations. The appetizers were brought to our table very quickly although the appetizer quantiles were rather small. The entrees were very flavorful with generous helpings. The prices were very reasonable and the atmosphere was very comfortable. I highly recommend this... More

I've never had food that I didn't love at Ray's Place. And the portions that they give you are great too. We always go early to beat the lunch rush and you will want to get there before you have to wait for a table. We always have great service there too. If you haven't been to Ray's Place I... More

Its a small little joint which churns out amazing Vietnamese food. I had called in my order and it was ready to go. The pho is amazing - bursting with flavor. Absolutely loved it. The appetizers are also pretty great. Great food. Only drawback I see - they dont accept American Express - its tough for the business traveller since... More

Really enjoyed the Pho, we had three different kinds and in both a large and medium size. I had the beef broth with a combination of different types of meat. Another had the chicken style and one other ordered the sliced beef...we all received individual servings of the bean sprouts, jalapeno, cilantro & lime to accompany our Vietnamese soups.

We went here for lunch after a long drive so we were quite hungry. The food was very good. My son had the fish and chips and they were delicious. I had a cod sandwich which was also quite good. I would recommend this place.

Rays menu has a LOT! Chicken curry is my favorite! However their Noodle soups are delish! It's a family restaurant, booths and shared tables. Go early, at least by 1130am - if you go later, chances are tables will be taken.

We have tried the combination fried rice, egg rolls and beef sauté noodles. The beef noodles were flavored well and very good; they are my daughter's favorite. The combo fried rice include chicken, beef and shrimp along with vegetables and eggs of course. The fried rice wasn't necessarily the best I had but was good. The portion was quite large;... More

By far the best Vietnamese food I've eaten! chicken pho; fresh spring rolls; lemongrass beef; chicken and vegetables; house-fried rice; Vietnamese crepes; Vietnamese BBQ'd chicken. Fast service and the portions are large.
