This was my second trip. I enjoyed this so much the first time, that the next time I was in town, I made reservations for a party of 8. Food was just a wonderful the second time!
The food is beautifully presented and deliously flavorful. Each item has its own distinct flavor, so repeated visits allow one to savor various items...and we do visit repeatedly! Can't wait to return.
The Vietnamese crepe was wonderful; after having it as an app with with a group, I had it as my entree because it was so great. The waiter was fabulos; he offered a tasting of wine before I made a bottle selection, which was very helpful.
Better than Anqi, since the Vietnamese food here has more remnants of the Asian dishes than the fusions.
We eat here frequently and look forward to our dining experience each time!
Excellent food, healthy, beautifully presented!
Phans55 is our go-to when we want to be in a comfortable atmosphere, with awesome staff (most of whom are longtermers), and many choices of fabulous food. The flavors are all distinctive and different from one dish to the next. And the portion sizes are pleasing - not too much, not too little for one and yet appropriate to share. Yummy!
Great food but the service is off the mark too often
Food was very marginal fusion mish mash. Preparation was ameturish. Prices were extremely high for very average noodle dishes. Noise level very high. Service spotty.
No where near the quality of their other restaurant.
This restaurant boasts being nongmo as well as organic - which is great!!! The problem is their portion size is small, yet the cost per plate is more than expected. Perhaps they need to invest in creative ideas to make the dishes look larger than they really are to trick us with perceived food portions. Decent Vietnamese food at a premium, but much more convenient than driving into the heart of Westminster. I would be a regular if they beefed up the portion size for 20-30$ dishes.
Vietnamese restaurant, some very nice dishes (seabass soup and cool noodles with bbq pork were lovely), but some things just OK. It is very noisy (loud people, loud and annoying music), the service was very slow and not very attentive, and it is very hard to find -- inside a complex of condos with an address that doesn't exist on GPS -- had to call to get directions, and even then, it is still hard to find. Price is reasonable. Seating sort of basic, not a place for a special event.
