We visited this place on a Thursday night. The place is big and pretty. It wasn't busy at all but the waitress took about 15 min to get our drink orders and then about 10 min to actually bring the drinks. Food is nothing special and a bit pricey. For appetizers we ordered a crab soup that didn't have any... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for 17 years. We just has another great dinner tonight. The shaking beef, 5 spice chicken and the duck are my favorites. I also love the egg roles and the lemon mouse. The owners know us and always greet us warmly. The prices are reasonable too.

Been coming here thru to wives and beau coup Berkshires trips winter fall summer. So after 25 years, I have seen this place grow, prosper and do the right thing....until now. The only reason it is 2 stars is that honored a request to get us our meal in time for a Tsngkewood concert. My wife's cashew chicken had no... More

If you read the reviews they are true from the excellent to the poor, I don't think anyone is not telling you the truth. This is a very old run, slow paced, set in their ways place. They don't need you and they are rather seasoned (seniors) who don't know anything else but work. I believe that's why they don't... More

This is not a quick food sandwich shop. The menu is Vietnamese based specialties adjusted for modern healthy diets. Fresh vegetables abound and the owner / hosts make you feel at home. The "Happy Pancakes" and "Shaking Beef" entrees are our favorites. Do not pass on dessert; go for the lemon mousse!

The food is always tasty, plentiful, fresh. My family always enjoy this restaurant. The menu is not very innovative, but that's okay, because for my kids going out for Vietnamese food is an adventure in itself! We love the dishes they serve here.

Truc Orient Express is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. It is a exceptional fusion of Vietnamese and French cuisine that is unlike any other. EVERYTHING is exceptionally excellent. My favorite is the Truc Special Shrimp rolls which are the best fried spring rolls in the world, bar none. Anything on the menu is worth trying.... More

Food was very tasty. We ordered 2 starters and one meal which helped keep the price down. Wasn't expecting much - nice surprise!

We were heading back from a day trip to the Berkshires and decided to stop in west Stockbrige to eat. Our friend told us about Truc Orient Express, where she had eaten a long time ago. The food was ok, but overpriced. I had a vegetarian meal, and the vegetables did not seem particularly fresh. I have eaten at two... More

Authentic Vietnamese in The Berk's however it comes at a price. We have eaten here a couple of times and do enjoy it though the prices are quite high for what you get. The food is good as is the service. Great to shop for Vietnamese trinkets before you sit for dinner.
