Quality is at heart of everything we do

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.

Best short rib pho we have ever eaten! Also outstanding banh mi. Terry is a gracious hostess. We will be back!

We ordered the Vegan Egg Rolls, Lechon Banh Mi, Smoked Pho, Lychee Hibiscus Mocktail, and Banana Fritter and everything was delicious. The menu had a good selection of vegetarian options that are not just salads; they definitely don't sacrifice taste for the vegetarians! This is a relatively small restaurant, so the staff were extremely attentive. Our waitress was super helpful in answering questions and anticipating our needs. The food came out very quickly after we ordered too. We had a really good experience overall. I would recommend everyone to check out the restaurant if you have the chance!

I love this restaurant. I got to eat there the otherr day and I can't wait to go back. I had the egg rolls which were perfection and a sizzling plate that I'll definitely order again. The atmosphere and the service were great too.

Friendly staff who genuinely were happy to be there. The food was delicious-so flavorful-cant wait to try their expanded menu. We ordered the egg rolls which were extra crispy; Liked that they come with some veggies on the side. We had the chicken pho, curry and bo kho. The meats and veggies had top notch flavors and we can’t wait to come back. The only word we can describe the bread that came with two of the meals is bonkers!!

Tried this new restaurant and loved it! I had the smoked brisket pho and I’m still thinking about it! The broth was delicious and the meat was so tender and tasty. I also had the spring rolls and were just so refreshingly delicious with the peanut sauce. I ate everything so fast I only got one picture. The coffee drink was also just the perfect amount of sweet for me. Can’t wait to try the rest of the menu!

Got the vermicelli salad and a butterfly passion fruit tea. Both were amazing, and service was great too! Definitely planning to come back and looking forward to the full menu (currently it is limited during the soft open, according to staff).

Having eaten pho for over 30years at hundreds of restaurants in 10+ states (including Little Saigon in LA many times) Lúa’s stands a cut above. This is THE BEST PHO I’ve ever had hands down. Crunchy Egg rolls robust, yet mild flavor served with lettuce, basil, cilantro, spring onions & an incredibly light, refreshing sweet & sour sauce with a mild kick that helps take the flavor of the roll & herbs as it flows through the palate. The pork & veggie filling was very well seasoned & balanced, not too rich, not too bland. Easily standing on its own, which Ive found exceedlingly rare. The fresh herbs & sauce can be added in any combination to take the rolls to the next flavor experience. Smoked Pho (12-hour smoked short rib)- rich layered flavor of the broth is incredible. The Smokey beef served with the pho marrys perfectly with the richness of the broth itself. When allowed to sit in the broth a few minutes (tasted immediately upon arrival, then 10minutes later after wife had eaten) the richness of the broth was greatly intensified & the Smokey flavor permeated thru the perfectly seasoned broth. CRISPY LECHON BÁNH MÌ (Pork Belly): bread is light & crunchy with a mayo based spread that compliments the pork belly, herbs & chimichurri. Personally I added another cucumber slice & cilantro/basil to each sandwich for my taste. As it comes from the kitchen it is DELICIOUS, very well balanced, light yet filling.

We decided to give Lua Eatery a try on their soft opening. Plenty of parking spots. The restaurant has a cozy vibe with charming interior decor. We ordered the egg rolls, banh mi, sizzling bo kho, banana fritters, coffee, and lychee hibiscus. All were excellent - definitely a beautiful rendition of Vietnamese cuisine with a terrific western touch. Service was also very nice. All staff were welcoming and attentive. Five stars!
