Has anyone tried out the new Vietnamese place on Commercial Blvd. in Lauerdale-By-The-Sea. If so, I would be inerested in opinions. Thanks in advance.
Yes. Went there after reading a review in one of the local newspapers. Place is quite small. Food wasn't bad, but think Saigon Cuisine on 441 in Pompano is much better (and cheaper). There is some variety on the menu, but portions are small and although tasty nothing special to warrant a return visit.
The setting is fine -- a small storefront (a former Little Caesar's I think) sparsely decorated and the service was decent -- friendly and fairly efficient. Had to send the soup back to be heated, and although the place was pretty empty at the time we went, we had to flag down the waiter for water refills. Tables are quite close to each other and there is a small bar as well. It's LauderdaleByTheSea location is in a quieter stretch of Commercial than down by the beach/pier so parking wasn't a problem either.
