This place has the best food ever! I go there whenever I am in Austin. Its a family owned restaurant and the staff knows my boyfriend and I and always knows what we are going to order. The food is exceptional and they are open until 1 am, which is also very good. It has a very welcoming atmosphere and casual dining. My boyfriend and I had gone on an asian fod craze and we had been to pretty much every asian food restaurant in Austin (where he lives) and in San Antonio( where I lived), but once we tasted their fried rice, we didn't go any further and haven't gone anywhere else since! This is definately a place to check out,, I promise you won't regret it! If you do you should ask for my favorite, B8 and eggrolls! Its fantastic!
I have been eating at this restaurant for approximately 15 years and the food has always been Excellent. However, I think that the dish called Mi Xao Don could be improved by adding Squid, Baby Corn, Snow Peas, Straw Mushrooms, Water Chestnuts, Bamboo Shoots and less Broccoli. I have eaten at 25 plus different Vietnamese restauraunts and this one has the best tasting food, in my openion. This restaurant has mastered the flavor of Vietnamese foods, but, needs to improve on the ingredients on some items.
Hai Ky is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at. Even though some of their wait staff are a little on the slow side at refilling my water, I have never been disappointed at the food. My wife and I go out to eat at Hai ky at least once a week, but mostly for lunch. The food is very affordable and the service is ok. I have never encounter anyone being rude to us or disrespect us because we are black. I would recommend this place to all my friends and family.
