I come by here every month or so. The steamed pork belly buns are amazing. Like bao (Chinese steamed buns) dough made flat and topped with slow cooked pork belly in a delicious sauce that can be eaten like a taco.
The food was good. Service is great.
It has changed alot sence I first went, it is now one of my favorite restaurantsDine in: Yes Outdoor seating: No …More
Love the filet mignon pho, one of my favorite dishes (even during the summer).
I can only speak to the service and the pan-fried items, but based on my experience, I won’t be going back. First impression upon entering was that the host was hassled to see us. The restaurant was mostly empty, with only one more table occupied. We were told to take a seat anywhere. The menu barcode on the table was covered with the table items so we didn’t realize there was one until being attended to some minutes later. The menu that pulled up from the barcode was for online ordering supported by a third party vendor, so it didn’t have any item descriptions. I asked the server what is included in the lunch specials on the online order menu, and he stated “it’s just lettuce, there’s nothing special”. Okay. I exited the online menu and pulled up their website instead. Their website doesn’t have a menu for the Barton location (hyperlink doesn’t work), so I looked up their Mountain Grove menu and that one did have descriptions of items. We ordered #120-Panfried soft noodles with chicken. And Pad Sew Ew with beef. Both items are described as pan-fried. But both items were basically boiled meat and noodles swimming in runny sauce and steamed vegetables. There is no wok-wonder going on here. The soft noodles with chicken was especially horrendous, because the sauce was sickly sweet. It also did not taste Vietnamese cuisine as they had used Chinese white pepper in great proportion, from what I could taste. I could also tell the chicken was just boiled in water. The one star in this review is for the gentle lady from the kitchen crew serving the dishes. She placed the plateful of food on our table with love and a kind smile. 🙏
Not bad for Vietnamese dishes in Redlands.
I ordered beef soup but no beef? You have to change the menu name. Only flavour beef soup.
Service is good, albeit a bit miscommunication. Food is great and comes in amazing portions
