Stopped this evening. My wife and I had two bowls of Pho soup. We had fried spring rolls and an order of General Tso's chicken. The restaurant itself is definitely a mom and pop atmosphere. The Pho soup was absolutely wonderful. The General Tso's chicken was as good or better than the Beijing General Tso's chicken in Duluth. We prefer... More

Well to be honest, the food wasn't that bad, it was Chinese, westernized! Not the real Vietnamese food, in its real form. Service started off good, fast and efficient, cooking time was not long, as we had starters so it seemed as we finished, the food arrived. Large portions, plenty of rice. When the main waitress left and the boss... More

I have read some of the reviews, and agree with some and disagree with others. Here's the scoop: This is an average Chinese buffet place. The food is not overly sophisticated or breath-taking. The atmosphere is kind of retro-70's mixed with Vietnamese flavor. When I go, I hit the buffet and enjoy what i know I will get: Typical Chinese... More

It is a shame the Vietnamese have to serve Chinese food to bring in the unsophisticated Americans. I did not eat the Chinese food, but their Bun Cha Gio (rice noodles with eggroll) was among the best I have had and very reasonably priced.

I get carry-out about 2x a month, and we think it is pretty much the best Chinese we've ever had. fragrant beef and fragrant chicken, tsa-sa chicken and tsa-sa beef are spicey and are my favorite. my boyfriend loves the chicken chow-mein and lo-mein. what's really great is that you get either a Chinese or Vietnamese...

The only reason I gave this place 4 stars and not 5 is because I only tried one of the menu items there. I liked the shrimp lo mein so much that I got an order to-go to eat later. The prices were extremely reasonable, and the waitress was really nice.

The sweet and sour chicken was white and tasted nasty. Only took one bite then it went in the trash. The "fried rice" tasted like white rice with a little soy sauce added and it had some frozen veggies in it. Worst chinese food I've ever had:(
