Falansai in Brooklyn, New York serves two menus of Vietnamese cuisine. For lunch, you'll have a number of street food options. If you visit Falansai for dinner, you'll have home-cooked Vietnamese meals to choose from. There are also a number of items on both menus that are influenced by French and Chinese fare.
There are a number of vegan dishes at Falansai. However, everyone else should consider trying the seafood pho. This MSG-free house specialty comes with crab, shrimp and calamari. Any of the pho here can also be augmented with different sauce options from around the world like Mexico, Southeast Asia and Peru.
Food was great and the overall experience made the night special.
Great and there's tons of variety. Worth the trip and easy four groups.
Would suggest sharing a bunch of small things.
Great location only 2 blocks from subway. Nice atmosphere, attentive staff, nice food selection from appetizers to entree and dessert. Would go again and would recommend to friends if in neighborhood.
The service is fabulous and the food is even better. Don't hesitate.
PS not fancy.
My review was based on lunch, and the dining room had just one other patron.
This place is small and quaint and the atmosphere is very pleasant. The service is great this was my husband and I second time coming and the waitress remembered us which was very nice. The food is absolutely delicious I know we've stumbled into a real gem.
This place has great cocktails, a wonderful bar scene with a fantastic bartender! Our server was also excellent and the food was divine to say the least. We came to celebrate my mom's birthday and we will definitely return!
Fresh, great flavors/combination of spies! The iced coffee reminded me of the time I spent in Vietnam. Service was delightful. We will definitely be making this a regular on our list of favorites in the neighborhood!
We picked Falansai because we were going to be nearby. Having eaten there we will travel back to Bushwick just to go there again.
Such a cute place. Delicious food, great wine list and really reasonable prices. Also appreciated that we didn't have to shout to hear each other - which is rare!
Recommended by a friend my husband and I tried it out. It was a great recommendation. Upon entry we was welcomed and seated immediately. The service was great and the food was awesome. The only thing that was not all that great was the desert. I oredered the chocolate mousse with candied ginger. It was hard and not to good. Luckily I ordered the vietimese coffee with the cake which tasted beautiful. I would recommend anyone to go here.
Lovely mood, an oasis in Bushwick, we were able to make a last minute reservation on a Sat night. Quiet with French lounge music being played, perfect because we had our 72 yr old Dad with us so noisy is no good. It did get louder after two large parties arrived but it was from voices and ambient sound; not music being blasted so you have to scream to be heard. Excellent, friendly service, our waitress was great making recommendations with food/wine. My husband loved the Shaking Beef, my Dad loved the Mama's Ginger Chicken which they made mild for him; I had the Kung Pao Calamari which was very good too (my fault for selecting a dish with baby fish which turned out not to my personal taste) and we shared the Dad's Shrimp Rolls, also yummy!!
We found this restaurant browsing Open Table, and deciding to give it a try for a Valentine's Day dinner. Don't be fooled by Harrison Place which is populated with warehouses, it has a great restaurant on the corner. We were pleasantly surprised, and totally satisfied with Falansai. The food was not only reasonably priced, but it was delicious! The service was excellent, and our servers treated us like we were guests in their home. It is a charming little spot that I'll definitely be visiting again, and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for exceptional Asian food in Brooklyn.
I had read a few reviews of this place and decided to take my partner and some friends there for his birthday. We are total foodies and trekked out from the upper west side. The food was outstanding - really delicious and it was not super noisy like most places. It was the perfect place to take a group. Outside of the food being really amazing the service was great and it was really reasonably priced. I will definitely go again and it was well worth the trip. I highly recommend Falansai. It was not crowded and I guess no one has caught on yet what amazing food this place has!
Though only a couple of block from the train station, this place is off the beaten path as the street is mostly warehouses.
We started our dinner with an excellent pinot from their pretty extensive wine list. We enjoyed the Dad's shrimp roll with tofu skin. The Shaking Beef was very succulent cubes of beef that had a nice smoky flavor. We also had the kung pao calamari with little dried fish which exploded with flavors. The lemongrass tofu was simple but was quite tasty. We ordered more food than could finish and had them packed. We skipped the desserts (looked interesting). Service was warm and efficient. The place had an soothing and foreign vibe with its turquoise hue and the eclectic cabaret like music. We will definitely return!
It's tough to say as we eat vietnamese cuisine pretty regularly and the prices here seemed a bit high; none-the-less the appetizers were pretty good - Chicken Wings and Imperial Rolls. The Papaya salad left something to be desired. Our entrees left us both scratching our heads too: Crab w/ Glass Noodles and Kung Pao Calamari. The latter was certainly interesting, to say the least. I think it would only be fair to watch the evolution of this restaurant, over the next 6 months - give them a year or so to get their feet beneath them - and check back to see how they have progressed. As of now, all we can say is that they are very sweet people, with great intentions.
