So my colleague & I went out for "lunch out" earlier this month, & wanted to try Le Cheval 'cuz their Claypot Rice came highly recommended to her...checked my pocketbook, yeah I could do this =) So we're off for some Vietnamese cuisine.

LOCATION: Downtown Walnut Creek on N.Broadway Blvd with Mt. Diablo Blvd as major cross street. Next to Smith & Hawken furniture/fixture store.

CUST SVC: Warmly greeted & immediately seated. Thorough, polite, & friendly service.

RESTAURANT: Spacious, large, & clean restaurant catering to people of all shapes & sizes, plus handicap friendly. Plenty of natural light from large front windows in front of restaurant to side walk PLUS from the sky lights *KUDOS*. Parking is metered street parking or public garage parking just 1-block up on Duncan Street (Jamba Juice at the corner).

TASTES: Automatically waiter brings over iced water & small bowl of potato soup. I didn't take snapshot, but from all the carrots in the soup, u wouldn't have thought it was potato soup. Brothy, hot, & a simple ok..and yes, I did find some potatoes w/ the carrots. Off the bat, if Thai Ice Tea is on the menu, that's my preferred drink ;-) Sooooo, that was my beverage of choice..yum yum yum! Colleague was recommended from a personal friend to try the Claypot Rice. This was a great recommendation! Claypot keeps everything hot from the rice, prawns, beef, & veggies; the dish itself was very tasty too. I went for the Orange Flavored Chicken w/ Red Rice (red rice is cooked in butter & tomato sauce). This dish was just ok to me, nothing bad nor overly great. Red rice was new & different to me, but something I think all home cooks can prob replicate @ home, u know. Chicken was tasty, but not a strong sense of orange-taste to me. Oh, I THOUGHT I moved all the chili peppers out of the way, scoop what I thought was just chicken when something registered on my pallet "not chicken, not rice..wait is this a seed"...yep, I chewed up ever so nicely a red chili pepper. The Heat had now entered..thank God for my Thai Ice Tea =) Dish was good & fulfilling; ate only half & took the rest 2go.

FINAL TAB: So I paid $12.57 (including tip just, under $15 bucks) for my drink & lunch item. A lil' pricey for a good lunch, but worked out fine since the lunch portion was stretched for my lunch the next day *tee-hee* That's not necessarily me being frugal either, I've just learned to try & remember it's all about portion control when you eat...at least on this "ok" lunch venture ;-)

Pros: Friendly & quick cust svc. Spacious & clean restaurant

Cons: Just a tad pricey

Although located in Walnut Creek, it left something ot be desired. The service was good, and the restaurant was clean; but the food wasn't good at all. My dish was the coconut milk chicken, and it stated that it should be spicy, it wasn't. It was in fact lacking in flavor. The menu was a little pricey, especially when I was expecting a wow, and got a dud instead. Will try again though because they had good service, and a good bar menu.

Wow! This place is wonderful - the prices are great, the food is amazing and the service is definitely top notch. Vietnamese food is really good! Great location not too far from Broadway Plaza, but far enough away where there is parking on the street or across the street is a parking garage. Definitely will go back more than once.
