This has always been one of our favorite places to eat. This time, we noticed a markedly different menu, shorter, with some of our preferred dishes no longer available. The appetizer sampler was gone from the menu, as was the Young Chow fried rice. We elected to order the fried egg rolls, which arrived larger in size than we expected,... More

We went with another couple who had been here before, and since we never had tried Vietnamese food I'm glad we did. The menu had like 150 items on it with tons of choices and options. I saw they had a picture menu available so we asked for it - it helped! Lots of food and a good price. Still... More

Always surprised that the food is so good and the price is so inexpensive. Always on our agenda even though we stay in Kissimmee it worth the drive.

Service was outstanding. Too bad I didn't like any of the food I ordered. Never had a seafood crepe where the crepe was flash fried and crispy like a potato chip. Went with 4 people, 2 liked their food 2 didn't

Food was ok, nothing to write home about. As we were done, I was waiting for the waiter to take our bill and card. I saw him chatting with the table next to us so I thought ok, I'll wait a few minutes. But he continued. So I thought of gently waving my hand to ask him to come over... More

I've been going to Lac Viet Bistro for years and it's one of the best Viet restaurants in Central Florida. All tier food is really good but a stand out is the green Papaya salad- I like mine with Conch and their Bun and pho is really good. They also have a really nice selection of tasty vegetarian options with... More

I've eaten at this restaurant for the past ten years and have always been pleased with food quality, value and service. IMHO, it is Orlando's best Vietnamese restaurant, catering mostly to locals. Many of their clients are Vietnamese families, which I consider a good sign. Try the summer rolls (shrimp and grilled pork) and any dish with lemongrass seasoning. The... More

As a true Hanoian, coming here I didn't expect this Bun Cha to taste like anything that I have at home. However I was surprised. The presentation wasn't anything like what I would have in Hanoi. However, the grilled pork and the sauce flavor is on point! Very authentic flavor!

Very impressed. Restaurant is nicely decorated inside and outdoor patio. Water is quickly served as soon as you have a table. With the heat of Orlando in May, this is a MUST. Lol. I ordered a Bun Bo Hue (spicy beef noodle) which tastes good. Ample of noodle and meat and so is Shaking Beef and salad served with brown... More

We dined at Lac Viet Bistro in Orlando last weekend. The restaurant has a big menu but the food is nothing to remember. The Bi in the Lac Viet special rice dish wasn't fresh, they used the small rice noodle for Pho to make the Pad thai dish, and the beef stew was salty. The mango salad was good.
