This restaurant is fantastic. We started with Lilly's spring roll, rice, strawberry, shrimp and avocado and it was delicious! We then had chicken Pho and shrimp Pho. The best we've ever had! Strongly recommend this restaurant!!

Excellent Pho and noodle dishes. Tasty but not too spicy. Recommend this place for either eat in or delivery via 3rd party companies. Reward yourself at Lilly’s Café on Magazine.

Good dinner. The place is simple. The rolls were excellent, spicy chicken with rice was ok, spicy shrimp soup was very good. Good value for money.

Guys. Lilly's rocked my socks off! Seriously guys... How can I explain it without writing a whole point-by-point review? I've come to expect that about 90% of asian restaurants in the US all have some sort of bland, ubiquitous, pseudo-asian dishes with no real flavor,...More
