Mrs. Nguyen owns the place and works the kitchen. The waiters have been here for years. Philippe greets and "holds court" at the table nearest the bar.

You enter through a gate and cross a small courtyard that gives parking space for six to eight cars. Few tables are inside. Customers normally choose to sit on the sheltered terrace with some Asian... More
