They didn’t have all the Asian sauces to got with their meals, otherwise it would have been 5 stars all the way.

We love 533! We live around the corner and have been ordering takeout throughout the pandemic as well. The salmon bowl is our fave go to. We have tried nearly everything on the menu! Also rec the short ribs with farrow, then pho, the soba noodle bowl, the wings. Service is always so lovely and welcoming. You would think outdoor seating in a parking lot wouldn't work, but they've done such a lovely job making it pretty and festive it totally works!

I love the food and menu at 533. What I don't love is the wine list. We alway have a bottle and if with others, 2 bottles. There are only 3 or maybe 4 selections per type and the are often out. Last night, a guest wanted a Cabarnet. I ordered as always the mid=range selection for $40. OUT. The lower selection was uninteresting and I ended up buying 2 $60/bottles. 533 needs more wine selections in the $35- $ range. Also, I found it interesting that the group of 4 in front of us were seated just by saying they were vaccinated. We were, properly, required to show documentation. The policy needs to be applies. Period.

Excellent Vietnamese fusion food. The spring rolls are superior to many I’ve had and the two entrees we had (yellow curry and the tamari glazed salmon) were both outstanding. As a plus, being in California, having our vaccine cards checked in order to eat inside made us feel very safe indeed

Early New Year’s Eve dinner. Just the two of us and a friend. We love it here. Food, drinks, and service are always excellent. Our server Jacob was so pleasant, funny, and attentive. Can’t wait to come back.

The food and service was very good. We were served our food quickly. Our only complaint is that we felt the ahi appetizer was over prized for the amount of food given. The other dishes we had were priced fairly and had a good amount of food per serving. Overall excellent experience. Would definitely go there again.

Our overall experience was tainted by the extremely rushed and poorly paced service. Our appetizers, main courses, and cocktails all arrived at the same time, about ten minutes after we ordered. The sever plopped the bill on our table before we were even finished. Too bad, because the setting is very pleasant and the food is good. But do not expect a relaxed, enjoyable evening.

Very attentive wait staff; creative, well presented and delicious food; we love eating Vietnamese food. By far, 533 Viet Fusion offers the best Vietnamese food we’ve had. We will definitely be back to try other dishes on their menu.

The staff was very friendly. The food was amazing. Our only complaint was it took a very long time to get the food and then the check. Assuming they were short staffed so we didn’t hold it against them.

We were visiting Palm Springs and thought we would try Viet 533 because it was close to our hotel. Who would have thought a little place in a strip mall would be so good. The food and service were great.

I had high hopes but was disappointed in the flavors (except for fried rice) of the spring rolls and the chicken vermicelli. The dipping sauce for the lobster spring roll was exceptional though, tasty.
A bit expensive for what it is and not as well prepared as the Vietnamese restaurants in OC.

My son and I went for Christmas dinner and the restaurant was so busy the server honestly didn’t have time to pay attention to our table. I let him know it would be nice if he waited for the answer to the question, “do you need anything?” Before walking off but he replied in a very smug way saying, “I’m really busy, but no problem, I’ll buy your dinner”. I didn’t need my dinner comped, I just wanted him to pay attention to the table. It wasn’t the greatest experience but I would go on a less busy time.

Very nice restaurant, tucked away at the end of a strip-mall, very quiet area, plenty of parking. Very nice space indoors (outdoors available too, and well done), and good distancing between tables. Our 1st time had been great, so we decided to experience new dishes. The Shrimp and Noodles tasted really good but the noodles were a bit too soft, maybe overcooked; we'd try this one again. And the Short Ribs again were very tasty, but also very stringy; we would not try this one again. There were only 2 desserts available and we decided to go without. Need to mention the service - impeccable with Raphael just like the first time with Philip. Also the Maitre-d was very friendly and effective. We'll be back, and will continue to explore their menu.
