Food Philosophy

We are inspired by the flavors of other Asian cuisines, and we often incorporate these flavors into our dishes. For example, we might use Japanese soy sauce or sesame oil, Chinese chili peppers or ginger, or Thai basil or lemongrass. We believe that these flavors can add depth and complexity to our dishes, while also keeping them true to their Vietnamese roots.

so happy to see something new opening in place to the previous restaurant. the remodel was beautifully done. great modern twist to traditional vietnamese dishes. we came to try all the different dishes and mocktails they have to offer and i must say that we loved the variety. everything was beautifully catered from the presentation to the actual flavors. my favorite dishes were the banh mi & the sizzling bo kho! bursting of flavors and beautiful presentation. not to mention the lychee hibiscus mocktail was refreshing! we came during a busy hour & i must say what a friendly & hardworking crew!

amazing food and staff! the ambiance was just perfect and the smoked pho and sizzling beef was very tender. definitely will be returning.😊
Amazing Asian cuisine. We ordered the butterfly tea passion fruit, spring rolls, banh mi, and smoked pho. Everything was delicious! We will definitely be back! The service was great as well. So happy to see tasty Vietnamese food in south Orange County.
My family and I decided to try the new LUA Asian fusion restaurant in San Clemente, California. Let me start by saying that the service was exceptional and the food was amazing! The smoked Pho was amazing! The best broth we’ve had since the San Francisco Bay Area. We also ordered the yellow curry with chicken and it was also so flavorful!! I ordered the chicken and rice dish. I’m sorry I don’t remember the name of the dish but the sauces are what really made this dish! The staff was so kind to us that they even gave us free flan! ☺️ We also ordered the fried banana dessert with ice cream. Everything was delicious and everyone there was so nice! We will definitely be back!
Smoked pho is my favorite 😍

Lua’s decor is bright and simple but welcoming. Encouraged by some good reviews, we stopped in during the soft opening. Taking the server’s recommendations, we ordered the Chicken yellow curry with rice and the Smoked Pho. Both dishes were beautifully presented. As we were told, the pho broth is very flavorful and delicious but not quite flavorful enough when eaten with the noodles. A small dish of condiments would have been appreciated. The meat was tasty and there was lots of it. Plenty of herbs add freshness and depth. All in a a very tasty bowl of soup. The Chicken Curry was yummy and filled with all my favorite veggies. Especially delicious was the kabucha, mushrooms and some amazing pickled cabbage. Next time, I think I will ask for a few extra cabbage. We ordered the curry with rice but the sauce is thin so the barn mi would have been a good option for soaking everything up. We decided to try the Banana Fritter dessert and we were not disappointed. Perfectly crisp, filled with sweet banana and coconut, drizzled with chocolate and served with vanilla ice cream, the fritters are a wonderful treat that isn’t too rich. The service was attentive with out being annoying. Can’t wait to com back and try the full menu.
