Loved this intimate place located in a smallish strip mall tucked away and off the beaten path. But don't let that stop you. It's super lively inside with stylish ambiance and spill over patio dining. Food was delicious - we especially loved the ramen dish with chicken lemongrass meatballs and the spicy tuna roll. Service was warm and attentive.

My wife had an issue with her dish. In the end they compted it which was nice but it disturbed the flow of our meal as she waited for a replacement dish. The Gluten Free selection was great on the menu but my dish was underwhelming. The service was great and attentive and the wine selection was very good. We will give it another try but won’t rush back.

We found this restaurant on Open Table after we tired of nameless, faceless and tasteless tourist spots. Excellent choice in Palm Springs. Great cuisine. Innovative menu. We have already recommended 533 Viet Fusion to our friends. Upscale and trendy interior. And, a great backstory to the restaurant in the menu. Make reservations. It's packed.

Yellow chicken curry dish is one of the best in the valley! Tenderloin beef bowl entree and spicy tuna roll (appetizer ) both exceptional dishes. 533 also has T10 for fellow gin lovers! Take-out at the bar always a great option mid-week.

The food is always good here. The service can be hit or miss. The person who seats the customers is a bit pretentious. Our server was fine, but I think we were put off by the fact that they treat Valentine's Day like a holiday, and they don't have happy hour as a result. The prices can be a somewhat steep.

Great food, excellent service, lunch prices are a bargain, dinner can be a little pricey.
I esp love the 533 special...entrees arrive in smaller portions in a big martini glass so one can taste different items ..lunch for $16...

We shared the spring rolls (delicious) and I had the yellow curry. Very satisfying and well described by the server as a “5 on a scale of 1-10” when I asked how spicy was spicy.

I am always impressed by the prompt and courteous service here. The pad thai with shrimp is delicious. The restaurant was not very busy this night because it was Superbowl Sunday, so my friend and I sat and talked for a while in this nice setting after we had finished. The staff left us alone, which we appreciated. (533 is normally very busy this time of year.)

The menu is large, and can be hit or miss; the curries are superb, the Vietnamese crepe not so much. Lobster popcorn is a must appetizer. Wine list is good and the drinks are well made. Overall ambience is OK, and the noise level low enough to make conversation possible.

We arrived at 533 and the restaurant was only 30% occupied. We placed our food orders and we waited over an hour and a half to be served. They clearly forgot to enter the order. When we asked about it, we were told our meals were on their way. 10 minutes later, they told us the meals were played. 15 minutes later, we were served. When we finally left, it was after 10pm and the restaurant was basically empty. The waiter had a very bad attitude about the situation, as if it was our fault. There are now other options.

This is my favorite spot in Palm Springs. The staff and food is excellent. My favorite dish is the osso bucco. Just the right about of spice to open your pores and congestion lol. Pad Thai is amazing. I do wish they serve boba or Thai ice tea. Highly recommended for best Asian Fusion cuisine.
