A word from Phans 55 Vietnamese Bistro - Irvine
Phans55 started out as a family of foodies who traveled and enjoyed all the different types of cuisines all over the world. We wanted to bring something unique and beautiful that we knew represented our Vietnamese culture and food passion. The idea was to take traditional Vietnamese cuisine and give it a little bit of a modern flare. This in turn was the beginning of Phans55 whose goal is to offer home-cooked Vietnamese comfort food. We set out to create a new kind of Vietnamese restaurant. Phans55 breaks all traditions - no processed meat entrees, and no heavy heart-clogging sauces. What you’ll find on our menu is innovatively grilled, steamed, or wokked plates over high heat. We use premium quality natural ingredients, organic when possible, and always fresh every day. We work hard and make our dishes from scratch to ensure our quality. No short cuts. We believe it's just better this way. Our ambiance is one of a friendly modern bistro will full bar and extensive wine list. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We have been here several times and never been disappointed with the food- it's so tasty. The flavors are clean and the food fresh. The Tofu and Eggplant was amazing, as was the salmon. We did not leave hungry. With just the right desserts to tempt, a lovely evening was had by all. (The only thing I would change was the delivery of the food- the main course arrived before we had finished our appetizers, which made us feel a little rushed.)"

  • "It's a pleasure to go to Phans 55 Vietnamese restaurant, either the Irvine or Fullerton locations. A few of my favorite menu items are the Pho Ga, the salmon, and the wonderful clay pot dishes. Phans 55 also carries beers from the Bootlegger's Brewery in Fullerton, allowing me to enjoy a local brew."

Try the Shaken Beef, the Pork Spring rolls, the cool noodles. All great!! And great quality of product, sourced from local farmers, all organic. Love it!!!!"

  • "This was a quick bite around the corner. The Traditional Spring Rolls was decent. The pork was a little too dry. The Seafood Wonton Noodle Soup was light and not too much flavoring like the normal Vietnamese soup. The wontons wasn't as fresh, you can taste it was starting to go bad. We also had the Shaken Beef Filet was also decent, the sauce was a little too runny. It wasn't like a wow, like Brodard. Plus it was really expensive for Vietnamese food that was just ok. I would like to pay more for closer, nicer atmosphere, and really good food. This wasn't the case."

  • "They have a unique dish that is SeaBass cooked in spices and a sauce in a clay pot served with jasmine rice that is unforgettable. Everyone is friendly and family run so they truly care about every dish they serve is the absolute best it can be. Best spring rolls and calamari appetizers!"
