OM nom nom nom! – best fried eggrolls. I also had their general tso's chicken & it was from heaven!
Awesome Vietnamese eggrolls! – Their seared pork with vermencelli and eggroll is a treat you shouldn't miss.
Not Authentic at all! – I visited La Cai, because I love Pho and I heard it was pretty good. I sure was surprised to find that it was fake broth. It is not the bone broth that authentic pho is made from, the soup was weak and I have a sneaking suspicion that it might be instant mix, if it isn't then it's just terrible ingredients, I don't know what's worse. Also it didn't have the abundant meat and veggies that are given to you at other Pho restaurants, so for what your paying for it's not worth it. The spring rolls were also a disappointment, It's so hard to mess fresh spring rolls up, but they did it. I don't think anything in this place is authentic, and being asian myself I can tell. If you're not familiar with authentic asian cuisine, and you think panda express is good chinese, then you'd be pretty happy here. Anyone else that knows their food, this is a sure let down.
This is the best Asian cuisine in SLC. – I cant think of one thing I have ever tried there that I didnt like! If you like shrimp your in the right spot, they make the best. I love their soups and egg rolls too! Very clean nice place, not fancy but still a great place for a date. I have always thought their servers were great, they are around often enough that you are always taken care of yet they dont interrupt your meal/conversation too much.
Great Food Great Service – I've been wanting to try Vietnamese food for a long time and I finally did. Because of La-Cai Noodle I love it!! The Beef Noodle soup was delish and the egg rolls are so good. Always order egg rolls! I've gone back 3 times already and I always get something new. Never a disappointment.
I order to go and the wait is always less than 10 minutes. I love it!!
HUGE recommendation! – This is my go-to restaurant in SLC, incredible food, quick service, very reasonable prices. My friends have long since given up trying to get my to go elsewhere when we're in town. Everything I've had is good, but for the PERFECT meal, get the fresh spring rolls with peanut sauce, and the #33 or #34. MMMMMM!
Great place to get your noodle fix – I went there for the first time last week and came away completely impressed. Nice place, very reasonable prices and outstanding food. I am not an expert, so I don't know if it is authentic or not, but my meal was so good that I don't care to find out. I had the bbq pork and egg roll lunch combo and it was great. The hot and sour soup is fantastic. I also sampled some chicken lo mein and it was better than anything I've had in SLC. Everything tasted fresh and wasn't greasy at all. I'll be back again and again.
Not so great pho – This place use to serve the best pho but after they remodeled, I am not sure what happened. The broth is not the same, they don't give you all the fixings they use to, and the prices went up, want great pho? go to Pho Saigon. It's the best.
Lighten up and try something different. Prices are bound to go up. Have you read a paper or watched the news lately. Is gas still .19 cents a gallon? Kurgh, they do a great job here. I've been a long time customer and have always enjoyed my time with them. Others need to try this out and not just go off of Kurgh comment.
Best Vietname/Chinese Restaurant in SLC – Im a very picky eater and away from home I was craving for something very asian. I fell in love with their egg rolls, a must when I go with Thai iced tea the perfect blend. Food are very tasty and hot when served. Price are reasonable with the big portion of meal that came with a good service. I guess they have remodel the place, very clean and nice environment. I was spoiled by this restaurant and I wont even try other. I hope all will enjoy the food as much as I do.
Great food. Great price. – Not much of a wait every time we go. SErvice is good. Food is great. The potstickers are terrific - the dough is not too thick and they seem fairly fresh. I almost always go for the Salt Baked Shrimp - like the rest of these reviewers - so good. Some of the "Chinese menu" options aren't amazing. I'm sure I ordered a chicken lo mein or something once that was barely average - not much flavor and pretty greasy, but I guess that's sort of standard for that dish....
