However, academics tend to get dragged to restaurants not of their own choosing, so it was only a matter of time. Well, it doesn't seem as though I was missing anything. I had a lemongrass dish and it was extremely greasy without much lemongrass flavor, plus the meat was of a poor quality. The lemongrass dishes at ["Sunrise Restaurant"] are much, much better. I guess the next time I am dragged here, which hopefully won't be anytime soon, I will try some pho, and perhaps that will be better. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hoa Viethttp://daviswiki.org/Hoa_Viet2012-10-22 15:57:19CovertProfessor <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hoa Viet<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 16: </td> <td> Line 16: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> '''Hoa Viet''' is one of two V<span>ietnamese ["restaurants"] in Davis (not including the pho line in the ["CoHo"]; the other one is ["Sunrise Restaurant</span>"]).

A small bowl used to fill me up but now they don't give you enough noodles and you're walking out feeling cheated. I have to get a medium or large to actually feel full. Also, I can tell they don't use real broth in their pho (real broth is suppose to be boiled from meat bones to get that meaty nice flavor) but now their pho broth tastes like they just dumped a bunch of powder in it mixed with water and I can tell because after eating pho here a couple of times, my stomach has that heavy feeling, not full, and I have some stomach pains which never happened before!

Service is pretty slow, and the waiters are somewhat rude. I don't know about you, but the young female waiter seems to like she doesn't really care about you and is pretty rude.<br> + <br> + The food is not that great either. I believe the only people that really like this place are people who haven't tasted the best of Viet food. I drive down to sac to taste REAL Vietnamese food like Saigon Bay, and they're REALLY good. The only reason why people come here is because it's the closest Pho place in town, but you'll regret going here after realizing the poor quality customer service and disgusting food. Take the drive and please your stomach with real Viet food in Sac.

Coincidentally, this is also the first restaurant I have ever eaten at when I moved to Davis for school. Initially, I hated this place. Coming from the Bay, I have always been blessed with great pho so this joint was definitely a disappointment. I hated it so much that I refused to go here for the whole first two years of college. But as year 3 rolled around, I gave them another chance (unwillingly, at first). All you Thirsty Thursday and weekend party folks know what I mean. I started to come here on a weekly basis (Fridays, lol) during the summer. Eventually, I fell in love with this place, as it has saved me from many hangover-Fridays (and some weekends).<br> + <br> + Needless to say, this is one of the very few restaurants in Davis that I actually crave to go to. I even prefer it over pho places in Sacramento. But i'll give Pho King IV a try soon and see if they steal my heart from Hoa Viet :) --["Users/reeeeeow"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hoa Viethttp://daviswiki.org/Hoa_Viet2012-02-14 15:55:01BingLComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hoa Viet<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 186: </td> <td> Line 186: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2012-02-14 14:55:01'' [[nbsp]] Food here is good.

Sometimes it's the default to-go place for my boyfriend and I, because it's really the only place in Davis with decent pho (Red88 doesn't count lol). The food is good, not amazing, but quickly prepared, and pretty consistent. However, I always order the cold noodles with the fish sauce (I forgot what it's called), but it always comes out either roomtemp or slightly lukewarm, which is sort of disappointing to me because it's not what it's supposed to be. They probably just take the regular noodles and run it under some cold water. :/ And it is a little janky inside; the decor needs work and atmosphere leaves something to be desired. But all in all, tasty food, and you get your money's worth. --["Users/susiebear"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hoa Viethttp://daviswiki.org/Hoa_Viet2011-10-19 20:08:30MaxLucasdetails <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hoa Viet<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 21: </td> <td> Line 21: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ <br> + The restaurant originally opened around the year 2000.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hoa Viethttp://daviswiki.org/Hoa_Viet2011-10-19 17:38:31NoelBrueningComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hoa Viet<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 174: </td> <td> Line 174: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2011-10-19 17:38:31'' [[nbsp]] Although the service was a bit slow, they were very tolerant and accommodating of the kids at our table.

The food was delicious: the egg rolls were toasty hot with thin, flaky shells; the grilled meat was succulent and aromatic; and the skewered shrimp were seasoned and grilled just right (not too tough or dry).

I went there last night for a bowl of soup with two friends and sat down when there was only one other person in the whole resturant. 45 minutes later we still did not have our food and the whole place was completely packed. After nearly an hour we were notified that there was no more duck and only two of the three of us could get our meals. It does not take over an hour for the small bowls of pho we ordered! we were completely forgotten about and then served too in haste without all of the food we ordered. We were not offered any compensation for our food being late and them not telling us they did not have our all food until they were serving us. Our drinks came after we had finished our food and packed up to leave but we were still charged for them. I love pho and am very disappointed that 1) the food is not that great and 2) the service is completely horrible. Save your money for a pho place in the bay area--- you will get fresher food and way better service. *** we came 20 minutes before the dinner crowd came, it was not because they were busy that the service was lacking. --["Users/whatithink"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hoa Viethttp://daviswiki.org/Hoa_Viet2008-07-22 17:45:28ScentimentComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hoa Viet<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 90: </td> <td> Line 90: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-07-22 17:45:28'' [[nbsp]] I've had some good Pho before, and coming from the Bay Area, there are a few awesome Pho restaurants. Hoa Viet, though, doesn't stack up with them. I;ve been there about three times now, trying their pho twice and a rice plate once, and neither of the times was super satisfying. First off, the veggies that they give (basil, bean sprouts, lime, jalapeno) are not very fresh, especially the bean sprouts. They came wilted and a bit brown, each time I've been there. The noodles are hard and very stuck together, and requirew a lot of stirring to loosen up, o you know that they've been sitting there for awhile. The soup is on the salty end, but not flavorful. If there was a different place to get pho in Davis, I would give it a try for sure, but unfortunately there are no other options besides Hoa Viet. --["Users/Scentiment"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hoa Viethttp://daviswiki.org/Hoa_Viet2008-07-20 16:00:34davisGeekComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hoa Viet<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 88: </td> <td> Line 88: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-07-20 16:00:34'' [[nbsp]] I've gone several times in 2008 and the food's always great.

Last time my entree consisted of like 5 different unidentifiable things, including a 'shrimp paste cake' and it was *still* delicious.

They set the bar for me for American Vietnamese cuisine. I've also dined extensively at Bobo kitchen in Sacramento, but Hoa Viet is my new favorite. The pho is superb, the accoutrements are fresh, and the portions are enormous. I tend towards the beef balls, but the "rare steak" is exemplary. For those fearful, "rare steak" simply means they slice sandwich-thin slices of beef and add them to the hot soup, where they are completely cooked by the time they arrive at your table. The "traditional BBQ dishes" are tremendously flavorful, and the usual side dish of vinagered fish sauce is very tempered towards western palates. Great quality, tons of flavor, and very cheap. --["Users/ChrisLambertus"]<br> - -----<br> - ''2005-09-15'' [[nbsp]] why is my negative, but factual critique, moved down to the comments section, while the positive fawning gets to remain in the main body?

Theres massive water on the flow where if you aren't wearing the proper shoes, you can slip and cause serious damage. They do not redo your order if they mess up. They take out the wrong serving with their bare hand(unwash) and place the new order in. I recently came back to order number 92 and was food posioned. Threw everything up in a couple hours. Never going here again. --["Users/ToddPhan"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-01-30 01:04:18'' [[nbsp]] the pho here is mediocre at best, and the rice plats are pretty bad. but if you're craving for pho this place is probably your best bet. don't try the chinese food here either. --["Users/EddieLim"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-02-20 02:54:38'' [[nbsp]] The pho is tasty and comes in a huge bowl, though I can't vouch for it's cleanliness. Face it, if you're going to buy pho, you're probably not going to get it from a pristine kitchen. The charbroiled pork over rice has been consistently good for about $7. Don't forget to try their strawberry and avocado shakes. --["Users/CurtisLim"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-03-19 18:10:58'' [[nbsp]] I actually really like the spring rolls.

It's horribly inaccurate to true pho, and my mom says, it's the kind of meat they use for bacon (the belly meat of the pig). It's a cheap workaround to what they're supposed to put in. And I don't think the management gives full tips to the waitstaff, but skims a bit of it. --["Users/QuynhNhuNguyen"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-04-03 12:03:16'' [[nbsp]] Went there on a recommendation, to go, and the food took forever. A good thing that was, I got a chance to observe the grubby atmostphere and the questionable looking staff (e.g., workers walking outside the front door to puff on smoke, people emerging from the kitchen area eating, and otherwise shady looking folk; except for the waiter). But more than that the place just looked darn unclean.

I went here last night. I requested an empty so I can split half of my Pho for my friend. Waiter brought out an empty bowl with residue stick to inside the bowl. I mean you can visually see it. So, I told him I want another clean bowl because this one too dirty. He took it back in I guess he cleaned this bowl inside the kitchen because I see those dirty spots. So, once more time. I put a current dirty bowl on the side, then I asked waiter to give me another empty bowl. He brought out another one. It looked dirty as the first one. In addition, I came from southern california, so I know what Pho tasted like. Pho at this place taste so plain and it has a lot msg. If you can to how cleaness they are, just ask for an empty bowl next time you come. For me, I would not come back here again!!! --["Users/ConnieTorres"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-07-05 15:12:08'' [[nbsp]] I've been a 'Little Saigon' girl all my life down in SoCal so I've eaten alot of better and cheaper Phos compared to the one at Hoa Viet.

The new ownership is great, but pretty new paint doesn't make the good food come back. I think in the ownership switch, they changed cooks. They used to have, by far, the best Veggie Chow Fun...ever...and the last two or three times I had it, it was completely bland and uninspired--and heavily MSG'd (I'm mildly allergic). Sadness. --["Users/JulieEickhof"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-11-06 22:36:19'' [[nbsp]] Pho can be ranked precisely with the Los Angeles Neighbourhood Scale, where "Little Saigon/Westminster" is the pinnacle and "Westwood" the nadir. For me, Hoa Viet's #1 combination pho was a solid-if-not-spectacular "Koreatown", making it one of the better ethnic meals in Davis. --["Users/SimonChan"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-11-08 20:38:45'' [[nbsp]] one of the dirtiest and nastiest pho I have ever had. The pho tasted like it was just some noodles with boiling water. hardly any beef flavor, and barely resembled anything like pho. I could just boil some rice noodles and buy some beef broth and it would taste better than this. --["Users/AnnThiNguyen"]<br> - -----<br> - ''2006-12-09 20:38:45'' [[nbsp]] I agree with the above. I was especially pissed off by the 40-ish waiter who seems to think he's a rockstar. I wrote down $0.01 for the tip but somehow it was changed to $5.00 on the debit card. The food sucks, try Stockton Blvd. in Sacramento for better Vietnamese selection. --["Users/TerencePhan"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-12-28 23:47:38'' [[nbsp]] This place is dirty. Food is terrible.

I'm like.......ugh....watever<br> + so conclusion is, she doesn't speak english or she can't write the word "onion" and also, when i ask for no onion, i mean so i don't have to pick them out myself you dimwit....<br> + Even if the Old tea house screws up on the no beansprouts request sometimes, they at least have the courtesy to remake it for you, rather than to ask you to "take them out" yourself...horrible --["Users/JamesLi"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hoa Viethttp://daviswiki.org/Hoa_Viet2007-07-04 14:10:39JasonAller <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hoa Viet<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 21: </td> <td> Line 21: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- </span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 26: </td> <td> Line 25: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- </span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 29: </td> <td> Line 27: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- </span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 32: </td> <td> Line 29: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- </span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 34: </td> <td> Line 30: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- </span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 37: </td> <td> Line 32: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- </span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 90: </td> <td> Line 84: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ''2007-04-08 03:56:59'' [[nbsp]] I agree with JulieEickhof about the place going downhill in the end of summer.

It was nothing special. I do want to comment on the fact that they charged me $0.25 to-go fee. I've never been to a place that charges me a to-go fee. But it was only a quarter, I just don't like the fact that the guy gave me the check and once I gave him my card, he quickly used his hand to cover the check. I asked him and he just smiled and nodded. --["Users/Jackie"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hoa Viethttp://daviswiki.org/Hoa_Viet2007-05-25 19:16:39domesticgoddesssComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hoa Viet<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 101: </td> <td> Line 101: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2007-05-25 19:16:39'' [[nbsp]] Rocking good pho!
