We'd been waiting for months and and months wondering when it was finally going to open. But you know what? The wait was more than worth it. The food we ordered was absolutely delicious and the owner Si was a most gracious, friendly man not to mention very informative and helpful in describing how to put together "Soy "fish" with dill and special sauce" items in our bowl. Oh and let me tell you the flavors of this dish are amazing. There's just no other way to describe it. Sizzling soy seafood mixture, noodles, green leaf lettuce, cilantro, mint and a special sauce. You line the bottom of your bowl with torn pieces of the lettuce, cilantro, with noodles...spoon on the sauce...and add on the seafood mixture. Oh and don't forget to add some of the homemade oily chili sauce! It makes all of the flavors of this wonderful dish come together perfectly. Other dishes we enjoyed were the unique Banana Flower Tacos appetizers and the Fried Rice Thailand style. Both were excellent as well.

We absolutely can't wait to come back and try many many more dishes. Everything on the menu looks and sounds so inviting.

Si and his family have created a cute little ambiance as well. Clean, fresh, and relaxing. We just can't say enough about Thuyen Vien except to say we wish you all the success in the world with the hope of many many great years of great dining experiences yet to come!
