La-Cai made me change my mind about pho and fried rice. The food is delicious and I have yet to order anything that I don’t like. Would highly recommend!

Have been visiting La Cai for many years. Food is always excellent. Bin is an outstanding waiter. Lemongrass chicken is wonderful! Have recommended to many and will continue to do so!

One of our "go to" Vietnamese restaurants. Can be crowded in the early evening, and closed on Sundays. I seem to ALWAYS order the salt baked calamari, and probably will not change! Once had the special pho, and NOT disappointed. Just good food.

Vietnamese and looks like there was other Chinese dishes on the menu also. The pho was delicious and good portion. Was more of a “fine dining” Vietnamese restaurant than what I am used to but the decor was nice and the service was excellent.
