This was our second, DELIGHTFUL visit to Mi Sen. Every facet of our dining experience was what one could want. The warm welcome, attentive service, quiet, uncluttered, intimate, quiet atmosphere, attentive service and wonderfully prepared dishes were A++. We will return & will bring more friends next time!

I made an 8pm reservation just before 4pm. I received confirmation but when I arrived at 7:50, the restaurant had not seen my reservation and not reserved us a table. We were seated at 8:20. Usually not a big deal, but we were then arriving later than we wanted at our event. Everyone was nice, and helpful, and the food was great. We will gladly return but recommend better notification of staff when reservations are made same-day. Thanks.

Hi! The food here was fantastic per usual except I tried an appetizer I’ve never had before and it was not worth the $15 (pork rolls- super super skinny with almost no filling in them). Everything else for price with food quality and quantity was top notch! We also ordered our appetizers with our drinks- 15 minutes later our waitress came back to take our main course order. 15 minutes after that our main courses came yet we had not received our appetizers. I asked about it and the waitress looked confused and said there was a glitch in the system for 30 seconds that canceled a lot of orders so she would check on the appetizers. We got them well after we were done with dinner.

The crab Rangoon was absolutely fantastic! The fried rice was just ok. Not nearly as flavorful as at our 2 usual take out Thai places. I was a bit disappointed. Our waitress was fantastic but I can’t help miss Jon who was the best waiter ever. He knew every dish to get or not. He was fun and engaging. Would like to know which restaurant he went to so I can go there now too.

The service was terrific - half our party was delayed and the server was super-understanding, also attentive to our preferences (one order was no-cilantro and indeed, no cilantro appeared). Apps were great, especially the thai fries. The drunken noodles were terrific but the duck was dry. We'll come back - but maybe not order the duck.

We had a delicious meal, our service was friendly and efficient, and we will definitely be returning for more curry and chive cakes!

Waiter was wonderful. Did his best . Kitchen seemed overwhelmed . Apps and food came out the same time. Don’t get the duck we had to return it and switch to something different

The only complaint is we were seated over 20 minutes after our reservation, the food and service were amazing otherwise!
