When I travel, I tend towards local cuisine and cuisine I've never tried before. Today was my first for Vietnamese.So considering that I have nothing to compare to, I'll say that it's very good. It's also very unique, not really comparing
with anything else I've every tried.
Upon the recommendation of friends, I tried Beef Pho which was served very fresh, very hot, very flavorful, and with what was to me a unique combination of accompaniments (but what I think is actually traditional): bean sprouts, fresh
basil, jalapenos and lime wedges on the side.
Following the lead of my lunch companions, and in order, I proceeded to
1) push the beef deeper into the noodles to finish cooking, 2) rip up the fresh basil into small pieces and stir in, 3) add the jalapeno slices so they could cook, and 4) squeeze a lime wedge and drop it in.
There are a variety of sauces at the table to add. I'd advise trying the Pho first, test each of the sauces, and then add (if necessary) as your taste buds dictate. You'll find a combination that's perfect for you.
Great service, fresh/hot/traditional food, and a warm inviting atmosphere. I'll be going back to try other items on the menu.
Dirty noodle – I ordered to go the a bowl of Pho the other day but when I opened it I saw an ant ad hair in there. I will never order any thing from them again.
Expensive ,Top Ramen. – $70.00 for low quality "top ramen" noodle soup,I tell you folks, This place is not what one might expect, A bowl of noodles, warm drinking water, un attentive staff, And to top it all off, an owner that is a cheat, Try to get a simple answer about yur bill after you have finished, Amazing they are still open, This is a great place to avoid,
The very best Vietnamese food. – I was surprised to discover such good Vietnamese food right here in Layton. The menu starts with three types of hand made egg rolls both fresh and fried served with peanut sauce. You will find a wide selection of Pho's, soups, rice dishes, Lo Mein, and fondue to name a few.
The service is always good and the owner oversees every detail and is helpful with describing the many menu items. From the cold beer to the fried bananas you wont be disappointed.
The worst owner ever – I worked there for only a short period of time but I have to say the owner Beverly is terrible. She is so cheap and mean. She called me in to work when she went to travel and needed some one to work or when the restaurant was busy but sent me home when it was not. She did that too me because I didn't get tip, and she had to pay me 7.25/hour. She kept the other waitress whose salary is 2.15/ hour plus tip when the restaurant has no customer because she only need to pay this waitress 2.15/hour. If you work there she will rip you off. She came in late every morning when all the table were served, just going to say hi to customers or giving them more water and then she will take half of your tip. I didn't get tip when I was working there, so I didn't really care about the tip but I saw her pulling out the tip from the cup ( this tip is supposed to give to the waitress) where the tip is kept untill the end of the day without other waitress' notice. She didn't let the waitress to count the tip at the end of the day but she counted it and gave some to the waitress. She always hided some for herself and gave the waitress less than they deserved. This woman really suck. She smiles to customer but talks bad about them behind their backs. Don't ever work there. If you are the customer look carefully at your bill. She is cheating with the price too.
The WORST customer service I've ever received. – I had to rate with the star code and did not have the option to leave it blank. The food is good, but when humiliated and treated poorly, it does't matter how good the food is, people will not go. I took my brother, with my children, here to have him experience Pho. I've been a couple of different times because I enjoy their food, but when I purchased vouchers from a restaurant website for Kim Long, wanting to eat there more with a discounted price, I was treated unkindly and simply unwanted. When using my purchased, same as cash voucher, the owner Beverly would explain how she was loosing money and needed to pay the rent and cooks. She was extremely reluctant in taking these, which is crazy! My husband and his business partners had similar experiences. This last time was very uncomfortable. While I was eating, this same owner came up behind me and took the Lord's name in vain repeatedly about my 11 month old twins' mess they were making on her tile floor. I was very well aware of this, after all, they are children. I felt I was keeping the area as clean as possible. We had a waitress take our order and bring the food, but that was all. I had my glass of water spill on my lap when she brought the food and I needed napkins that weren't brought. There was water everywhere. The owner Beverly said that the waitress didn't want to serve our table any longer and quit! I really don't believe this. My children were very well behaved and I cleaned up our own dishes and messy floor when finished. I've never had these issues before at a restaurant and we go out to eat more than 3 times a week.
Yummy – I surfed the web looking for a restaurant that served good Pho. I found all that and more in Kim Long's. The Pho with chicken that I had was mouth watering. ( I believe the chicken was grilled or roasted and it was so tender.) The broth was just right. On top of that, I had to have the spring rolls with peanut sauce. The final compliment to the meal was the cup of coffee. If you haven't been, go there. The food is wonderful. The service is outstanding AND they take the time to talk to you.
Don t work there – don't ever work there, i use to work there they do slave work!!!! the owners are so cheap and so mean! all they are to you is a dollar sign. Its so horrible!! i never felt so useless in my life!!! Dont go there!
Awesome food! Must try! – Excellent food and service. The pho is phenomenal and so is the fried rice. The boba drinks are one of the best I've had. I recommend this to any person who wants to enjoy a good meal.
the best food and service – The food here is wonderful especialy the Pho. The service is also very personable and very attentive. It is over all an awesome place to eat and somthing you must try. I love it, it is the best.
