Best spring rolls ever made. Garden grove is known for their Vietnamese restaurants and this place is their #1. Long wait but it moves quick because the place is huge. Get the shrimp and pork combo spring roll and the com boc luc loc, cubed beef with steamed rice.
I love how these people are always smiling and greeting their customers warmly. There are other things that I would want to mention but it all sum it up to one, awesome place.
Bring a Vietnamese friend. – I would be completely lost if I'm not with a Vietnamese friend when I come here. They have a wide assortment of dishes to pick from, and figuring out what you're going to have can be an adventure. Most of the patrons are Vietnamese, as is the staff, so its best to be careful you make your order as clear as possible to avoid any misunderstandings later on. This is a large friendly restaurant that can accommodate a lunch group, or if you have children in your party. If you're Vietnamese you'll be able to offer a much more qualified critique of this place; however, for the non-Vietnamese, I think you'll find it amazing!
Had Better – I was in the area and I wanted to try Brodard, famous for their nem cuong. I thought the nem was a bit salty and the egg rolls were not crunchy enough. The sauce was also a bit water downed. The nem cuong was a bit pricey as well. I had a hard time looking for the restaurant because it was located in the back of a market next to the dumpsters which isn't really appealing. I had really authentic nem at Nem Nuong Ninh Hoa in Rosemead however the wait is a bit long but it's definitely worth it. They sell 4 rolls of nem cuong for $4.99 and their banh beo is really good too. I also tried nem in Vietnam and the nem at Nem Nuong Ninh Hoa is the closet taste to it as compare to Brodard.
THE best springrolls EVER – this place is always packed, but so worth it! they have the best pork spring rolls ever!!! and pretty cheap too...
Best Rolls – The best rolls around. This place is always packed at peak hours and just about every table order the rolls. They come in two choices. The nem cuong (grilled pork paste) or the chao tom cuong (grilled shrimp paste on sugar cane). They are both delicious. The sauce for these rolls are good, but a bit salty. I have not tasted a better roll yet in Southern California, or anywhere else. Except for when I visited central Vietnam, where this dish was originated and famous for.
Long Wait during lunch hour – 2)also, restaurant have some weird way of doing business.. let's say if someone front of you orders(catered) 200 rolls. you'll be waiting for your order in front of the restaurant until they are finished with customer that came before you. I strongly believe that is one of biggest issue brodard is having long wait.
SO BE PRE-PARE TO WAIT LONG DURING THE LUNCH RUSH~
The Best!!! – A great place to try all types of authentic Vietnamese dishes. The place can be busy at times (lunch) so make sure you head over early. Also, they really close at 8:45 instead of 9. So get there before then, or else you'll have to order take out and it's only for the nem nuong. Overall, higher recommended!!
great spring rolls – best spring rolls in town. Everything else is decent, but you have to get the spring rolls!
Best spring rolls in town – I love their spring rolls. Their egg rolls are also yummy. Their other dishes such as their salads and noodle dishes are also pretty tasty. If I can pry myself away from spring rolls (which will fill you up) I'll try more items. Go with a big group so you can sample all the different items. And get the Halo drink.
This local Vietnamese favorite is home of the renowned, mouth-watering, double-wrapped egg roll. – In Short
Mid-region Vietnamese cuisine is dished up quickly, generously and at bargain rates. Families crowd into this bustling, casual and cheerful high-ceilinged eatery. They're famous for their nem nuong cuon appetizers, including deep-fried pork egg rolls wrapped in fresh cool greens and rice paper. Also try the banh xeo, a deep-fried coconut curry pancake filled with bean sprouts, shrimp and pork and the hu tieu, a special dried rice noodle.
