menlo park, California

Prices are high and the quality is variable.
I had a very flavorful blue crab soup, but it was marred by being served lukewarm (and this was about 6 pm when the restaurant had just opened and there were only about 6 diners - so there was no execuse for the lack of attention to detail in the kitchen). I was not very impressed with the expensive dessert either. Okay but not great.
Maybe this restaurant was better when it opened, but it seems to be coasting on old reviews. The web site http://www.anamandara.com/ lists prices that are significantly under current menu items.
There are much better value for money deluxe restaurants available unless you just have to spend a lot for atmosphere and pseudo-gourmet Vietnamese food.
