Worst "Vietnamese" food we have ever had, and this includes some bad places we ate while living in NYC. Definitely would not recommend.

Everything I've had here has been excellent. My personal favorite is the spicey lemongrass soup. They have all teh regular items one might expect on the menus too- eggrolls, spring rolls, summer rolls, Vietnamese coffee, ect.
