Arriving with nothing more than Internet reviews and the desire for something different, we drove from mid Missouri. Min was our server and we memorized our order and delivered it perfectly. We started with cold pork spring rolls, while we considered entrees. I had a pork banh MI sandwich and yellow curry soup with chicken and egg noodles and black... More

My entree was the pho with both medium rare beef and meatballs. Both were generous portions and very... More
