I've eaten here before and had good meals. Today I tried the Vietnamese Chicken Vermicelli and was sick all afternoon.

Decided to give this place a try. Paid $5 for 3 fried spring rolls that weren't very good. Ordered the red curry with chicken and brown rice. Come back to tell me they have no brown rice and offer white or fried with no mention of additional charge. Curry comes out dry and grainy, fried rice also has weird texture... More

One of those places you find by accident. You order at the counter and they bring your food...cooked to order. The lemon grass beef is absolutely wonderful...all the oriental food is good.

First time a week ago with friends. They suggested the spring rolls which I normally would order in other Asian restaurants. I prefer them to the doughy large egg rolls. Surprise when I found out they were NOT deep-fried dough rolls. These were the most succulent Vietnamese rice paper rolls filled with your choice of shrimp, pork or tofu, vermicelli... More

Plum Café is an overpriced oriental fusion restaurant. The food is OK, but the prices are way out of line for what's actually served.

My friend and I had always been a fan of Plum Cafe. We went there October 9, 2015. The whole atmosphere had changed. You have to order at the counter first, get your own silverware and drinks, and be your own waiter. Our order was not correct either. This is quite a disappointment. The Plum Cafe has lost two loyal... More

When this place first opened you got your own drinks, condiments, etc. and placed your order at the counter. After a few months they went to servers serving customers. That was fine and most of the servers were Asian. Now the service really sucks and there don' t seem to be any Asians anywhere to be seen. When they don't... More
