Fresh and delicious!
Fresh and delicious are the first two words that come to mind when I eat ANYTHING that I order at Phan's 55. Today was no different. The shrimp egg rolls were delightful, and the chicken rice claypot was the best meal ever. Keep up the great menu options and the clean cooking!!

Excellent Vietnamese food!
Excellent Vietnamese food! Reasonable prices. There is a great happy hour from 5-7 that attracts a lot of young professionals.

The food is very good and
The food is very good and fresh. The spring rolls are tasty but the portions are small. The steamed chicken salad was good and the large size is enough to share between two people. All in all the food is good, quality is good but a little pricey for what you get.

Yummy..Time Your Visit for Ambience
I love this little restaurant. The food is wonderful and the servers are attentive. If you are trying to catch up with an old friend, don't come at peak times because this comtemporarily decorated restaurant echos. It was difficult to hear my lunch companion at first, but once the place cleared out, it was quite lovely. I recommend this restaurant for its wonderful food. There are vegetarian options that are delicious.

Love Phans 55 in Irvine.
We are big fans of the ahi roll, pho broth Chef's Special and French macaroons. On this visit, one of our guests, who is a second generation Vietnamese woman in her mid-20s and whose family was in the restaurant business throughout her childhood. She gave Phans 55 high marks. We love Susie, the owner, and bartenders Duke and Angie.

Every time I dine at Phan's 55, I come away with great feelings of having eaten FRESH, well-cooked food. The spring rolls (EVERY flavor) are delicious; the chicken rice clay pot is always a hit, and the calamari is perfectly cooked and seasoned (love the jalapenos!). The owner makes you feel very welcome and the wait staff often recommends great food items if you are trying to decide what to get. DEINITELY will be going back again and again.

Reliably fresh and delicious!!
I am always amazed at the fresh, delicious food here! The chicken clay pot is the BEST. Every one of their spring rolls should be sampled - the ahi tuna one remains one of my regular orders. The calamari is light and crispy with a hint of spiciness as it is fried with jalaphenos. I've never had a bad meal here!!

Hidden But Worth The Search
Phans is tucked away in an apartment complex, but parking is easy and was free when we visited for lunch. The clay pot lunches (we had chicken and seafood) are fantastic.

Sea Bass in Clay Pot
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!
