My first impression of Song Linh was that it was clean and smelled appetising. The owners and staff are friendly and hospitable. If you are unfamiliar with Vietnamese dishes they are willing to describe them and offer suggestions based on your preferences. The friendly service and fresh food turned our first visit into many return visits. We intend to fully explore the menu of the varied fare. In Southern California, particularly in Garden Grove, Vietnamese food is easy to find, but we like this one. This cafe has a relaxed, attractive atmosphere. Families are welcome. It's in a small strip center with free parking. Very reasonable prices and hot authentic Vietnamese entrees that taste really good. Usually busy with Vietnamese people who seem to agree with my American tastebuds that this is really good food. I especially like Song Linh's central Vietnamese specialties as well as the more familiar dishes from other regions.
I and my wife discovered this restuarant by chance. We fell in love with the restuarant on our first visit. We like the menu offered as the restuarant owners are very helpful and gladly talk to us and make recommendations. We have rarely had the same dishes in our 4 to 5 visits to the restuarant in last two and half months. Every meal has beem a pleasure. I have been to the restuarant with a vegetarian friend also and the food was equally tasty and delighful, my friend liked the restuarant very much also. The resutarant has a cafe like ambience and is very neat and clean. I recommend this restuarant to my family and friends.
MMM best hu tieu noodle soup ever! This placece has the bombest pork broth hu tieu soup in garden grove. Lots of flavor, and you can request to add whatever you want in the broth (crab, shrimp, pork, fish balls, etc). You can also order dry noodles with soup on the side if you like to eat in that style. They have the chinese fried donut in the mornings, but don't expect to see it at night since it's so popular. It's next to a great che (vietnamese dessert) place too. Parking is a pain since it's a tiny lot, but there is street parking on the side (be wary of street sweeping and take note of what the signs say).
