On Yelp, Evangelia L, from Garden City, said she was happy to find this place so close to home.
“A new Vietnamese restaurant that I don't have to drive all the way into Queens for?” she wrote. “Saw this place in my Yelp recommendations... Had to check it out. So glad that I did. I have to say, wow !! I'm very impressed.”
Michael A, who lives in Nassau County, agreed.
“I was amazed to learn that a Vietnamese takeout opened right in the neighborhood,” he wrote. “Could it be good? Would we have a new place to order from? Do they deliver? So many questions and only one way to find out - call and try.”
Did it pass his test?
“Ha Long Bay is a great addition to the neighborhood that I'm sure we will order from often. I'd suggest you give it a try.”
