it was a half an hour wait time but it was good foods with good values. We enjoyed the foods very much. Order and pay first before seating are one of the kind... very smart business idea... we did not mind at all... excellent experience.

The restaurant is very noisy and seating is tight. You can't make reservations and your entire party should be with you before you get in line. You order and pay at the register, and are given a number to wait for your table. Once you...More

Given the popularity and overall good reviews for this restaurant, we were disappointed in the food and environment here for dinner. The concierge at our hotel recommended Luc Lac. We got there and you order at the desk and they give you a table number....More

Definitely recommend grabbing take out here - the pho was amazing and very fresh. Prices were good and the portions are huge - ate our order for two days. Really strange atmosphere and the music was so loud that there's no way you could sit...More

The food was real Vietnamese, and outstanding. Beer was good. Service was courteous and fast. The only downside: persistently loud noise that, we guess, qualifies as music. Impossible to carry on a conversation. Perhaps this is by design, to discourage lingering and to increase throughput.

We went as a family of four with two teenage kids and we all loved it. All dishes were tasty, including two large bowls of pho, fried spring rolls, beef rolls, and the Luc Lac special. Ambiance was fun with parasols hanging from the ceiling,...More

They order on a first come, first served basis. The people ordering take-out were helped when there were no tables, but I think that had more to do with the people in the queue than the restaurant staff. Either way, the... More
