Our waiter Bronson was very patient explaining the menu and was sensitive to food allergies our group had. He brought 3 red wines for us to sample and was both professional and personal. It was a great night out. I had houseguests and was happy I chose this restaurant for their night in Palm Springs

I don’t know what has happened, but as locals, the food was authentic and flavorful. Last night our dishes were the most mediocre meal we’ve ever had there. I was looking for the salt? Cold soggy mealy egg rolls? Went sent them back, we ordered soba noodle salad - again, no flavor. Veggie Pad Thai was awful, bland tofu and the pork fried rice needed salt? Even the sriracha didn’t help. Everything was a one note dish. Too bad they’ve joined the tourist trap model of expensive drinks and food you’d find at Panda Express.

Great food and great service! 10 of us found something we loved, and the our-of-town guests raved. Bronson is the best server! Always my go-to spot with guests.

I have eaten at Viet Fusion many times and was always happy with the experience. However, my last visit was not as positive for a couple of reasons. One of my friends, (who is a vegetarian) ordered the
saigon noodles. The menu describes that it comes with various vegetables. When it arrived it looked like just noodles. When we asked the server he said that the vegetables were chopped up. My friend was not pleased and the waiter offered to get a small bowl of vegetables for an extra $3. Seemed very petty. Second incident: I ordered the vegetarian yellow curry as I have many times as it is my favorite. This time the menu did not say that it came with tofu but it always had. When I asked if it came with tofu he said it was $3 extra.
For a dish that was already $15, another $3 made it a pretty expensive curry dish. Then when the dish came it had tofu in it and they brought a side dish of tofu. I was confused. The waiter didnt seem to really know what the deal was but was not very accomodating. No apology or just let me make that right for you. I bring many guests here for dinner but this recent experience is making me rethink that.

We went to this restaurant due to reading SO many positive reviews that not only was the food incredible but the service for gluten free food was great as well. Being a celiac, I was excited to go. However, when we arrived and told the server I was gluten free, he literally rolled his eyes and his tone with us changed immediately after that. I felt like a bother to him. He told us he doubted the kitchen would accommodate. So we chatted with the manager & he seemed more optimistic. Overall, we didn’t really feel welcomed here & it wasn’t a positive experience for us. If you are celiac, I would recommend going elsewhere that happily accommodates your needs so you feel safe. I only felt safe eating their rice after our conversations with the staff. My husband ordered two other dishes and said the food was just OK. Celiacs be aware!

Always the welcoming and friendly place. The menu is thoughtfully planned and skewed to the less adventurous American palette. The flavors are not as strong or exotic as what one might find in Vietnam, but they are delightful just the same. Very happy I have found this place and its always a treat to those who come to visit.

The food was amazing! I tried 3 appetizers: Pork Belly, Chicken Wings and the Crispy Spring Rolls. All did not disappoint, the wings were some of the best I ever had! The Tri Tip Pho was delicious too. The food was matched with excellent service!

We’re regulars at 533 and I’m constantly recommending it to friends but the decibel level last night made for a very uncomfortable dining experience. Otherwise the food was, as usual, excellent.

Lovely atmosphere, friendly service, but I did not enjoy my entrée, Vegetarian Pho. In tasting husband's vegetarian fried rice, it was far too salty. And, didn't appreciate the lack of brown rice as an option.

This restaurant was highly recommended to us by our neighbors and we were so impressed. It is not "in the heart of downtown", which we love , as locals.. we love quiet , off the beaten path places to dine. The service and food were amazing . We will definitely be coming back soon.

This is our second time here, and had another wonderful experience. The food was delicious and flavorful. I ordered a Vietnamese spring roll with salmon and a chicken pad thai noodles. Both were delicious and flavorful. The servers were very friendly, informative about the food and provided very good service for the 4 of us. The restaurant had interesting back lighting and music at just the right noise level. Will be returning again.

Really good food but a little more for the money would be nice; too few pieces on the Ahi tuna roll plate. Happy hour drink prices are very reasonable and the drinks are good. Service was excellent! I received a gift card for this restaurant for my birthday and there was some issue with it reading correctly but they ended up honoring it; nice touch when a restaurant creates a no BS environment for its customers! We will be back!!
