We were staying close by in Montereyfor two nights, Chopstix was ideal as we could walk. Our teenage daughter is vegetarian and there were lots of delicious options for her that weren't a garden burger so we went back the second evening. The bubble tea was new to us and we all fell in love with bubble tea!! Worth waiting... More

Not the quickest food in town but amazing flavor combos. The lemon grass beef and pho soup is fantastic. No need to spend big money on a meal-check out chopsticks!

A great dining place - always crowded but the staffs were quick and friendly. Food was good - not the best, portion was big but not spicy at all. They have a wide variety of boba tea, smoothie etc at cheap price to choose.

At Chopstix, Monterey, we had the best dinner in the last week. The food tasted like heaven, the staff was nice, helpful and quick, and the prices were amazing - $6 on average for a huge portion of yummy and healthy meal sounds like a way to go for me :)

Pho's soup base didn't have MSG. Not expensive and the quality of food is great. Love the spring rolls. Love the dips are in tiny stainless steel container instead of the cheap plastic one. Waiters are nice!

Being on the road in the US you have to eat a lot of burgers! So this was a nice and needed break from the fatty US food along the highways. I live in Asia and love spicy food. But as expected the spiceness was very westernized here even though I asked for it to be extra spicy. Still good... More

We have eaten at the Chopstix in Seaside and Monterey a number of times, i typically order a dry noodle bowl with Lemongrass beef. My wife usually orders pho. This trip was disappointing, as the quality of beef the restaurant served was clearly deficient. Each piece was tough and fatty...it is clearly an inferior grade of beef to serve with... More

Ordered carry out twice. First time asked for beef pho and it came with two little pieces of beef and a tastless broth. I had to add spices at home to be edible. Did not eat the all of it. Decided to try a second time considering the limited number of option for Pho in Monterey. Asked for vegetable pho... More
