    #116 wasn't bad but could've been done better. Vietnamese Coffee is always worth it. Spring rolls missing some ingredient. Will come back and try out more food.

    Consistently one of the best restaurants in Des Moines. I've tried a variety of dishes and the flavors are always so fresh and authentic. Highly recommend!

    A Dong dishes are made with fresh ingredients grown right outside the restaurant, and the menu (featuring over 100 dishes) hasn't changed since the restaurant opened. The owner is also the head chef.

    Not only is the food here DELICIOUS, it's SO CHEAP! Awesome spot for vegetarians - order the 8C! And non-veggies can't go wrong with the Pho!

    17c extra extra spicy! As a vegan, I appreciate that they have an extensive veg menu. I don't think you could go wrong with anything on this menu!

    Best Asian food we've had in DM. Prices great. Nice downtown but off the beaten path location. Cool place. First of many visits I'm sure.

    #80, omg. The taro bubble tea is amazing too. And the sauce they give you with eggrolls, is the stuff dreams are made of.

    Any veggie dish is awesome. And, the shrimp and chicken crab ragoons are the best in town. Ask for your dish spicy. The iced coffee is out of this world!

    It may not be the prettiest restaurant in town, but this is the most amazing Vietnamese food in a city known for it. 16c ftw.

    119 is my comfort food. If the day is less than satisfactory, 119 makes it all better. & it's even better as leftovers!

    If the pho is too little for you, all you have to do is ask for a bigger bowl. It doesn't tell you in the menu.

    Be sure to ask for mint in your spring rolls. Takes them to a new level -- and they are the best rolls in town!
