One of the Worst
I am not sure who they think they are fooling but what they serve is not vietnamese food.
I have many friends from Vietnam, so many I could not name them all if I tried and have eaten and none use the hot sauce like this. If they didn't want to serve Vietnamese food they should just call their restaurant American crap and get on with foreclosure. This is one of the worst restaurants I have ever had the displeasure to visit.
To be fair, I was warned by a good friend of mine that this place was not authentic, and he is from Vietnam, being born there and lived there for many years, but restaurants with the same name exist in other places and their service and food have been amazing.
Perhaps this is a drug hangout, which kind of explains their patrons, lack of authentic spices and inability to speak Vietnamese.
My final review or tip is to try Chan's down the street or one of the other excellent Vietnamese restaurants in the Vi-Mi district.
Great Food Wonderful Service! – I have eaten there twice and both time were great experiences. The staff was helpful and professional and the food was fresh and full of flavor.
Authentic Vietnamese Cuisine – The service and the food was absolutely fabulous. The herbs, vegetables, and meat was fresh and prepared with the idea that the chef wanted to get married to the patron. Best vietnamese I have eaten yet.
NOT Worth the Wait! – If you are Not Asian you Will Not get Service
Great food, great friendly service and reasonable $ – I was visiting Orlando with my father who had never tried Vietnamese food. I found Anh Hong here on Citysearch and decided to give it a try. Here in Southern California, we have a large population of Vietnamese so I wasn't expecting a lot. I was presently surprised and thought it was better than what I can get here in Southern California. I originally went for dinner and it was so good went back the next day for lunch. My father loved it and the staff were very helpful in describing the different foods to him.
Great Food/Great Service – We found Anh Hong through the City Search site and ate there at lunchtime when we visited Orlando in Feb. Our server quickly realized that we needed help with the extensive menu. She guided us by asking what we liked and made recommendations. The food arrived quickly and was absolutely delicious. The spring rolls, not fried, were scrumptious. We both had squid dishes (different ones) , something we cannot get in our favorite family Chinese restaurant at home...cooked to tender perfection and deliciously "hot." The best part was realizing that this was a family owned restaurant...our favorite kind. When we finished eating, the "hostess" came to our table to welcome us. We learned that she was part of the family who owned the restaurant. We were delighted to learn about their journey to America and then to meet her two daughters and her nieces when they arrived after school with cream filled doughnuts to snack on! We'd love to return and hope that YOU will give it a try. The restaurant is on a corner and was easy to find.
The place to enjoy vietnamese cuisine – Not a fan of big fancy loud restaurants. Then try Anh Hong. Its nice and quite atmosphere allows one to enjoy and savor the delicious Vietnamese cuisine it offers. Very few of its kind, Anh Hong is a small humble restaurant that you can relax and enjoy an impeccable meal without having to deal with all the commotion that comes along with the more than annoying larger crowded restaurants. With its friendly employees not being distracted by multiple customers its service is more individualized. Speaking of service, delivery is amazing. Before you even get the opportunity to ask "whats taking so long" your meal arrives promptly under your nose blessing you with its aromas. With its excellent atmosphere, and incredible service, Anh Hong is just one of those restaurants you feel at home in. Not to mention the price. I felt as if i was robbing the place when i saw the bill. With that said, Anh Hong gets a double thumbs up and 1st place on my fine dining list.
User review by polygonpanties – Orlando is blessed with almost too many Vietnamese restaurants, but Ahn Hong is my favorite. Its menu is extensive and lets you stick to your budget or treat yourself. [The best value in town is an order of their delicious summer rolls ($2.50) followed by a tofu French sub (also $2.50). You'll be stuffed!] They serve a number of vegetarian meals as well as meat, chicken, pork, and seafood dishes. I order the seafood papaya salad, anything stir fried with lemongrass and chili, the grilled shrimp rice vermicelli bowl, or the sweet and sour tofu with veges. If you ever feel like you're getting sick, let the thick, velvety broth of the duck pho work its magic. And if you're dying of a Florida heatstroke, slurp on the jackfruit smoothie or the mocha bubble tea as you watch the poor saps outside fight their way through Colonial and Mills.
This place is addicting – This place is so goooooood! I can't stop coming here, it's like each time I pass the restaurant I always have to come in and get a bite. It is like the smell pulls me in there. Just typing about right now makes me want to drool. It is so good I can't even describe It, you'll just have to go there to know what I mean. Ohhh, the food is so yummy.
Traditional home cooking from three regions distinguishes this eatery from others in Orlando's Little Vietnam. – The Scene
A corner storefront with servers in black and green--which match the lacquer and table linen.
Soups, salads, noodles, rice and grilled meats--in various combinations. Usual dishes feature warm noodles atop cool bean sprouts and heaps of cilantro, mint, white radish, lemon grass, and even banana flower--all dumped into huge bowls of broth. Unusual menu items include steam round cakes (a sort of rice grits with dried shrimp and fried onion flaked on top), shrimp paste on crab claw and crispy (outside) golden pancakes with shrimp, pork and sprouts in a turmeric-esque batter. Order anything grilled: the crunchy crusts should appeal to even the most wary diner. On a scale of tame to adventurous, first come rice platters, then rice vermicelli, then soup. For a light, sweet drink, try the lychee juice. Skip the hot and spicy beef soup: the flabbiness of the beef and bologna may turn off out-of-towners.
