I absolutely LOVE this place. The owners and their workers are extremely friendly. They have an amazing selection of food to pick from on their menu. I can't say enough about how good this food is. Everything we have ever tried has been excellent. Not sure how they do it but they have a tremendous selection and it's all so... More

This is my new favorite restaurant. I've had the chicken pho each time, and it never disappoints. It is very busy all the time, but the wait is worth it.

If you are looking for some of the best food in town this is the place to stop. It can get very busy at peak times so make a reservation or place a to go order. The food is worth the wait!

This is a rockin' place! We figured we would catch an early dinner but there was already a 30 minute wait before 5 PM. Oh but it was worth the wait! The service was super friendly and attentive. The food was very fresh and flavorful. The chicken satay appetizer was delicious. I can highly recommend the ginger chicken entree. The... More

If you go during peak dinner hours expect to wait. Their pho is packed with flavor and if you get the big bowl you'll be taking a lot home

I went to Ha Long Bay on the recommendation of a friend. We were in town on business, and my co-workers and I wanted some decent food. This place met our expectations and then some. The menu has several options, and the Pho was authentic. Loved the Ginger tea, the spring rolls and the dumplings, too.

May take a while to choose because of the many selections but do not think you can go make a poor one..It was delicious, staff was friendly and... More

They are usually busy, but it's well worth it. Great family location in the middle of Williamson Street on the near East side of Madison. No parking lot but there is free parking along the street - highly recommend biking or walking if possible. My favorite is either the squash red curry or the Tom Ka soup. They will make... More

When ever i am in Madison area, I will swing by and have a plate of Pan Zee Wee. Lunches are great and dinners are always some left-overs.

We stopped for a light lunch of beef tendon pho and tom kha with a pot of jasmine tea. The pho was well layered with flavor and served with the traditional thai basil, pepper, lime and fresh bean sprouts. I had hoped for a few more pieces of tendon as I love the tender gelatinous goodness. The tom kha was... More
