Small Restaurant Big Taste

This restaurant has been around since 1994. It is almost considered a Richmond Institution. I started coming here as a student attending Richmond High School. The times have changed but overall the food has been consistent. I enjoy eating the Large bowls of Rare Beef with Beef Meatballs and I... read more

Hey so if you are into exotic stuff (and clean). You can come to this place. As one reviewer says this is an institution in Richmond and a restaurant operating for over 2 decades in Richmond... well that means a lot, its like a European restaurant operating since the middle ages. Anyway, since I'm not scared about humble restaurants, where... More

Great location for a first date! The service is kind of bad though and you have to be prepared to be super quick or the staff get a bit rude.

We had a delicious, inexpensive lunch here on December 18. They offered a booster seat and kiddy bowls/cutlery to our children, and brought the toddler's food first. Previous reviewer mentioned they take credit cards but as of December 18, it was cash only. This is a real hole in the wall. Feels a bit sketchy but the food was excellent.

Delicious beef noodles Vietnamese style. Soup base is the best 👍. Reasonable price, but the place is a bit too crowded and makes me feel like I have to hurry up and eat so others have a place to enjoy such delicious food.

this is a small little restaurant that moved from Granville Ave a while ago. The new place is quite small, hard to navigate between tables (and I am thin).. food is not bad, and they take credit cards! unlike most Asian restaurants of this class in Richmond.

It comes in 3 sizes: small - medium and large, each are complemented with with fresh soya bean sprouts, lime... More
