We visited Luc Lac with some family a few weeks ago and we were a bit disappointed. The staff is friendly enough but the food was nothing to rave about. We had heard really good things about Luc Lac but unfortunately most of the people...More

Three of us ate here on a weeknight in November. The wait was not too bad; we started just outside the door and we were ordering within 15 minutes. We shared a number of dishes: chicken skewers; banh mi; spring rolls; and cream cheese wontons....More

Best Banh mi ever! Papaya salad, curries- it's all good! Sometimes there is a line to get in but it moves quickly. The Banh Mi sandwich is a great deal- it's huge and perfect to split. It is a bit noisy, but always happy to...More

Though the pho I ate there was good, I bought salad rolls to go and bit into a large copper staple (the kind used on cardboard boxes?) that had been rolled into a salad roll when I got home. I did not post a bad...More

I’ve had Pho a few times but none as flavorful as this. Also tried the La Lot, grilled minced beef rolled in wild betel leaves; delicious.
