I'm used to Vietnamese places that are really basic and kind of grungy. This place is much nicer than that. The downside is the prices are higher than I'm used to paying for Vietnamese. In any case, the food is good. Service is decent but...More

You cant go wrong. The food is always wonderfully fresh and cooked to perfection. There are multiple selections for all diets, so for those looking for vegan or gluten-free you will be well served!

I have been to almost every Vietnamese restaurant in a 50 mile radius of Lan Chi, and Lan Chi is the worst I've had hands down. Very slow to get our food, it was overpriced and inauthentic tasting. No hot sauces/condiments, no chopsticks. The pho...More
