Lang Van Restaurant Review: Ignore the décor, the music and the location in a nondescript shopping strip mall. Focus on the food. Authentic Vietnamese dishes and good service make Lang Van worth the trip. Favorites include goi cuon (fresh summer rolls) and chim cut (crispy quails), which are fine for sharing. Entrée highlights include banh xeo (Vietnamese yellow pancake), a vegetarian special, and bun tom, thit nuong, cha gio (vermicelli combination). Servers happily help those new to Vietnamese cuisine with suggestions and explanations. Need a jolt? Lang Van offers the potent café sua da drink that packs a wallop in the flavor and caffeine departments. The restaurant serves beer and wine, but neither will supply anything particularly out of the ordinary. Tea usually works nicely with the food.
