VUNG Tau Restaurant Reviews
Vung Tao has a huge menu, and everything we've had there has been tasty, served hot (or cold if it should be) and well prepared. We live nearby and go there often. Can be loud and crowded.
We got a bill that had a extra charge for extra raw veggies, a few leaf lettuces and Thai mint. When we told the owner/cashier that the waiter brought it to our table, which we assumed came with the appetizer that we ordered. The owner asked the waiter, who lied in front of us. The owner was then rude to us and told us we're ripping him off. We're talking about $1.50. We're regular customers, why would [they] be so rude to us? Maybe he recognized my partner and I are gay, because we always go eat there together.
Shaking beef is great. So is the caramelized sea bass.
