Ms. Kim is a wonderful lady who creates her Asian cuisine in a small kitchen while you wait in an area that is part dining and part sewing establishment. She is a seamstress also! See is delighted to make any dish either off the menu or a creation that you discuss with her.

Honestly folks if you love Asian food and are up for some fun.....do not miss the chance. If you dine in it is BYOB.

I have been to this little spot a few times now and have had mixed experiences. I adore pho, and the first time I went here she served up the best Pho Ga I quite possibly have ever had. The next time it was less than stunning, as the chicken was quite dry. But the next time it was fairly good. I will say that I appreciate the time that the owner puts into her food. Be prepared to spend time here, as food is not served in a timely manner! But you will know that she is preparing everything fresh including the great Vietnamese egg rolls. If you cannot get to Pho Saigon in Corpus, this is your next best bet. Just don't get caught dead inside Hu Dats.

Absolute best Asian food I have ever eaten. Loved the spicy lemon grass chicken and the lo mein. Wife said the egg rolls were the best she has had and I agree. A must try restaurant in rockport.

It's tough to be a vegetarian in a fishing town so we don't eat out a lot. I'm also kind of fussy about Asian vegetables. So...we've seen Fai Foo's restaurant and seen them at festivals but had not tried them until today. At the HummerBird Festival we ordered the veggie crepes and they were tailored to order. Very fresh veggies and wonderful sauces. Large with a lot of filling. The owner and her staff were friendly and welcoming. The restaurant is in a strip center that has seen its better days and looks mostly abandoned but we'll definitely be going there soon. They also serve vegetarian (and meat) egg rolls,spring rolls, and more. The owner said they cook to the customer's preferences. Delicious! Also I really appreciated that the veggie crepe was a little less than the meat ones--often we pay as much not to have the beef or chicken. Oh, also they are small and the restaurant closes if they are at a local festival or out of town so call ahead if it's a big deal.

If you eat enough pho, you quickly figure out that the best places are the somewhat dodgy looking ones, that smell somewhat funny due to the spices and ingredients. This is one of those places.
The food here is excellent, perfectly seasoned (especially the pho ga) and very authentic.
If you're looking for a Vietnamese version of McDonalds, go to Hu Dat down the road. But if you're looking for the real deal, made by hand just like you'd get it in Saigon, you need to come here.
