Seriously, great food I am just back from Vietnam and the Pho here is just as good - same goes for the decor :) This is not Tiffany's but the people are warm and wonderful and the Pho is just as outstanding. Highly recommended!

Some of the best eats around. This is a favorite spot for the Vietnamese community to come and dine. The food is consistently good no matter what the season and the host/owner is always willing to make recommendations if asked. The portion sizes can vary quite a bit, from small to very large. Note that they do close early, there... More

My husband and I have eaten here several times over the years and have never been disappointed. Tonight is no exception. It was HOT outside but we we were greeted by a friendly waiter and welcomed the cool temps inside. The tall-spotlessly-clean glasses of ice water were also welcomed. We almost always order the same two items #17, a delicious... More

I have to admit I just got back to my hotel room from having dinner at Vinh Chau and went straight to TripAdvisor. I wanted everything to be vivid for this review. This place is excellent. Hands down - one of the greatest vietnamese restaurants I have ever been to. It is small, quaint, and nothing extravagant. Then, again -... More

Have eaten here many times with friends.This was our first bad meal.The meat in the spicy chicken veg stir fry tasted very freezer burned,inedible.The waiter suggested I just eat the vegetables!The owner would not discuss the problem,take the dish back or off the bill.Disappointed to see another neighborhood favorite deteriorate.

Had an early dinner here last month. Small neighborhood restaurant.The waiter was so helpful in explaining various dishes and how they were prepared. The food was fresh and delicious. We had enough to take home for another meal. Will be going back here soon.

With all the glowing reviews, I really had my hopes up for great Vietnamese foods. Unfortunately, the Bun/Vermicelli dish I had was mostly a big pile of overlooked rice noodles (they fell apart as I picked them up with the chopsticks), large pieces of fried tofu, and just a smattering of lettuce, bean sprouts, ground peanuts and just a hint...

We went here on a recommendation and it did not disappoint. Lots of deliciously seasoned food, prepared with care and served with a smile. Our waiter was really helpful with menu tips. We will definitely go back again!

Weekly, for years, I've been eating at Vinh Chau's. The food is outstanding, especially pho and the meat hot pots. Affordable, generous portions, served kindly and promptly. Restaurant is very clean. The decor and location are nothing to speak of, because all the energy and investment are in the food and the people. Do not miss it!

This is a great small place to eat. Inexpensive but the good is great. The owners are very personable and friendly. There is plenty on the menu for all. My favorite is the spring rolls you make yourself and the sweet and sour soup.
