Le Cheval Restaurant

Fodor's Review

This cavernous restaurant, a lunchtime favorite, is a good place to sample pho, Hanoi-style beef noodle soup fragrant with star anise. Other entrées include lemon chicken, cubed beefsteak, and clay-pot snapper. It's hard to spend more than $20 for an entire meal unless you order the seven courses of beef ($28). The complimentary minibowls of soup that are placed on the table as soon as you sit down are a great balm to hungry diners, though the service is lightning-quick

Cheap eats - and you get what you pay for

I can see why this place is so popular with large groups. The food is more on par with fast food - americanized, bland. The atmosphere is hopping -good for families with children if you can get a table. The type of place where they can throw food and no one will notice. Good place to bring the elderly parents for a 'safe' night out. Very fast service - almost as if the food is in vats on steam tables in the back. The food is cheap and cheaply made.

Sigh. You'd be much better off to walk 2 doors down to Siam Bay where the service may be glacial but the flavors and quality are always a delight.
