There are many good things to say about Camdi. First, the selection of vegetarian items is large enough that you don't have to order the same meal time and again which, as we all know, is not always the case an non-veg-exclusive restaurants. Second, the lunch specials (which are available all day) are an excellent deal if you don't want to spend a lot of money. They are smaller portions than the entrees but cost only around $5. Third, Camdi is quite convenient to the University of Minnesota. Lastly, the service is excellent. The staff is very friendly and create a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere in which to enjoy your meal.
The downside of Camdi is that the food isn't as good as at many other Vietnamese restaurants in town. While I have never had a BAD meal at Camdi it sometimes just doesn't taste as good as what you might get at Thanh Do (at twice the price, mind you). Also, if you are quite hungry, the lunch special just may not be enough food. In that case, you have to go for an entree which pushes your meal up in to the $8 range.
Overall, Camdi is a very good restaurant and easily one of the best places to grab lunch for University of Minnesota students and staff.
