Goi cuon, spring rolls, and those do-it-yourself rolls... confused.

I tried doing a search, but for some reason I couldn't find what I was looking for.

I often get confused when ordering spring rolls at a vietnamese restaurant. I believe Goi Cuon is the actual name for spring rolls (the NON-fried type), right? There are plenty of times when I've gone to Vietnamese restaurants and I've meant to get an already prepared roll and have gotten the DIY rolls instead, and vice versa. Ive tried to simply just ask a waiter but often I get the "what the hell are you talking about" look. How do you know which is which when looking at a menu?

Thanks in advance!
