There’s always a line out the door at Madison’s well-known Vietnamese and Thai restaurant Ha Long Bay, located at 1353 Williamson Street. I could go on forever about why you need to eat at Ha Long Bay as soon as you can, but here are a few reasons:
1. Huge Selection
Ha Long Bay’s menu is enormous, but everything is great no matter what you decide to order. It can definitely be a little overwhelming when you first look at the menu, but the staff is always willing to help you decide!
2. Amazing Food
I have never ordered a dish here and been disappointed. After asking around, I found the fan-favorites to be:
- Spicy Chicken Wings
- Chicken Dumplings
- Pad See Eew
- Drunken Noodles
- Pad Thai
3. Great Prices
Everything on the menu is very well priced, especially because the dishes can easily be shared, which also makes it fun to go with a group.
4. Good for Sharing
The more people you go with, the more dishes you can try!
5. Fun Atmosphere and Friendly Employees
The atmosphere is energetic and fun-filled. The staff is extremely friendly, and my friends and I even have a favorite waiter who’s section we always make sure to sit in. There restaurant is always filled with young people, who are wearing anything from sweatpants to jeans.
In early May, the restaurant entrance was hit by an SUV, but good news is that no one was hurt and restaurant is expected to re-open in mid-June. Be sure to make a reservation for the grand re-opening!
