I gave it one star because the price is OK for the amount of food. However, the reason people think they got more food is because they used so much MSG, the foods were so salty you had to eat too much rice and get full before you could

Quantity of food is unbeatable but quality of food and service is terrible. Chicken was tough & chewy. Fried whole fish was still raw inside and dripping blood on the plate. Mussels were still cold seemed like they just poured sauce over

This place used to be delicious but ever since they expanded the restaurant, the service is terrible, too much msg, and it is completely overpriced...probably due to all the new renovations. I would not bring my family back here again,

Excellent vietnamese restaurant in the Bellaire area serving up a wide variety of dishes. They are known for their com tam (broken rice) dishes, hence the name of the restaurant, and their com tam is as good as it gets. I usually order item C2 on the menu, which is com tam thuan kieu dac biet mon B - broken rice with shredded pork, baked egg, shredded pork skin, egg roll, bean curd skin with shrimp, shrimp paste, and beef.

They also have pho noodle soups, fried rice dishes, bun kho vermicelli dishes, banh hoi, canh chua soups, and a whole list of other main entrees.

They serve arguably some of the best vietnamese clay pot catfish (ca kho to) in town... it's got the right amount of sweet carmelized tastiness like my mom used to make.

They also have a pretty good family style menu where you can get a four course family meal for as low as $18.

I've attached my photos of their menus for your review. They recently renovated and nearly doubled their space after buying out the space next door. They are located in the shopping center across Bellaire from Kim Son next door to the Family Dollar store.

Also, as with many asian restaurants in this area, they are CASH ONLY so come prepared! Service can be spotty with the occasional attitude, but I don't mind as long as I get yummy food.

Thuan Kieu is an unassuming little hole in the wall in one of the older strip malls on Bellaire. But don't be fooled by the outward appearance. The food here is second to none and some of the best authentic Vietnamese comfort food. What is Vietnamese comfort food? It's food you would cook at home, not go to a restaurant for. Simple dishes like caramelized catfish in clay pot, sauteed ong choy with garlic, squash soup with shrimp, and so forth. I order those three dishes to go whenever I feel like home cooking but can't get myself to lift a finger. It's clean, it's simple and it's always good. The name "Com Tam" means that this place also specializes in broken rice plates. These are also very good, but I like to order a la carte because I can't get those dishes anywhere else. The family menu is a steal at just $32 for Catfish sweet and sour soup, steamed chicken, sauteed mussels, catfish in clay pot, and salad. My parents friends invited them here for lunch, and while they were initially turned off by the basic surroundings, the quality of the food quickly converted them to fans of the restaurant.

Pros: Excellent food all the time, extremely reasonably priced

Cons: Restaurant is small, can smell a bit like fish sauce
