    The green and yellow curry here is to-die-for! If you are a fan of Vietnamese cuisine, I highly suggest 888. The dishes are reasonably priced and the portions are generous. Pad Thai is also exquisite.

    The pineapple, shrimp and duck fried rice with red and green peppers was great. P8 large bowl of pho for 7.50 was nuts! If I'm back in the area and want Vietnamese, that's where I'm going.

    Good oriental food, my favorite in Austin! One of the best in ATX area. Good vegetarian options. If you are in Austin you have to stop at 888, it's a must!

    One of my favorite spots when I used to live in SE Austin. You can't go wrong with the red curry, the phad thai , or the pho!

    If u get the pho make sure u get the small bowl. I can't even make a dent in the big bowl. It's overwhelming how much food it is. Very good though!

    If you're getting pho to-go, be careful about ordering rare flank steak because it probably won't cook properly by time you get home and mix it all together.

    Open late(till 2am M-Sat)! The Buffet is awesome! Maybe one or two deserts ever put out with the buffet, but otherwise, great food!

    (Thai) Shrimp red curry is too sweet and not spicy. They have from thai to Malaysian and Vietnamese food. Not authentic. Maybe the Vietnamese food is fine . They have fortune cookies which is a plus!
