As you can expect in cases like this one, the food is... read more

At newyears eve the kitchen was closed when we arrived but the chef went back to the kitchen and cooked us a tasty seafood rice dish anyways. Staff is very polite and friendly. Definitely our...

This restaurant is not here it's closed and replaced by Ngoc Mai, exact same address. I would recommend you dine at the new one, it's is a family run business and the food is great.

The cook always comes out to your table to see how you enjoyed the meal. On Valentine's day the ladies received a red rose and free dessert,... More

We had friends who were going to join us and then didn't and we debated telling them how good it was so they wouldn't be upset! We... More
