The lunch buffet: visually beautiful, delicious, and incredibly varied. Lots of sushi, hot Vietnamese and Chinese dishes, salads, soup, fresh fruit, and pastries. All for 9.99! Service was very attentive, and I can't wait to go back. I've eaten a lot of Vietnamese food over the years, and this ranks up there with the best. It's too bad they can't put up a decent sign, since you almost have to know about it to find it.
We ate at New Asia in late May. Don't miss it! The Vietnamese food is excellent at reasonable prices, and the owners are friendly and helpful. Our meal included a bun dish (noodles, fresh vegetables, chargrilled chicken, shrimp, or spring rolls, with Vietnamese sauce), banh xeo (a type of crepe with various fillings), goi ga (a salad of fresh greens and chicken, with basil, mint, cilantro, and Vietnamese sauce), and cha gio (spring rolls, somewhat like Chinese egg rolls but MUCH better). Everything was delicious! No greasy spring rolls here, and plenty of basil and mint, often omitted in lesser Vietnamese restaurants. Highly, highly recommended!!!
