Anybody been? Was thinking about this place for a lunch soon. Checked the menu, it's about $2 -3 more per item than the usual suspect places. Worth it?

    The people are nice (mom in the kitchen, son in the dining room) and the interior is very clean and classy though dark. Maybe the darkness is supposed to be a classy touch?

    The lunch food all was decent, but I recall thinking it wasn't worth the price, once I saw the bill totaled up. If you put a premium on a classy atmosphere, versus a run down Madison Hts strip mall atmosphere, then you may reach a different conclusion.

    Sorry I don't remember what I ate. It wasn't memorable and it therefore has been almost a couple years since I've last eaten there. I've been to Vietnam only once, so I don't feel qualified to comment on this restaurant's authenticity other than to say it is not too far from what I recall eating in Vietnam's big city restaurants that had English menus.

    I just peeked at the dinner menu and it's kind of got me interested in giving the place another try, some eve when I've run out of time to cook.

      Thanks Vtom...atmosphere not worth the $, unless it was the late, lamented Annam in Dearborn. I'll stick to the JohnR/Dequindre joints.

      My feelings are pretty much the same as VTB's only I don't want to go back. It wasn't bad or anything, it just didn't wow me and it wasn't worth the extra dollars. If I had to put it into words I would say that they are trying to come off as more upscale than the quality of their food allows them to be.

        Its definitely cleaner than the typical Vietnamese places around Madison Heights. Is it better? Not noticeably so. Their Bun Thit Heo Nuong and Cha gio is pretty edible. I would come back and try their Ga Ri Ca since no one else around other than my own two hands offers this. Pho, Bun Bo Hue, Com Suon, etc... I think you're pretty off at Pho Hang/Que Huong/Thuy Trang.
