Stopped for a "snack" traveling through on vacation. Quick access off interstate (don't let construction in front of restaurant deter you) & lots of reviews from fellow tripadvisors brought us here. Bahn Mi #5 & spring roll #6 was both best of Vietnamese in their class (didnt try their pho) we've eaten in US and we have sampled our share... More

We had a little bit of trouble getting to this place, due to a widening project on Lititz Pike. If that is ongoing when you arrive, be patient, a little creative, and work your way back to the small but adequate parking at the rear of the building. Once inside, you will find an extensive menu, largely many variations on... More

My husband and I were looking for something a little different to take back to the hotel for dinner...this was perfect! Banh Mi Pate Thit was awesome, the veggies were fresh and crunchy and the French bread was a little crisp on the outside, soft and chewy inside. My husband got the vermicelli salad bowl with pork and was once... More

I selected this restaurant for lunch based on the reviews and was not disappointed. The dining room is small, as is the waiting area, but the tables turn over quickly. The staff is super friendly and accommodating (in addition to our lunch, I placed an order to go).

I have tried many other Vietnamese places and nowhere comes close! Great service & even better food. I think I would eat here every day if I could! But be warned, it's very addictive.

Small restaurant, always seems packed, and now I know why. Great, quick food!! I an very picky and have had several different dishes and liked them all. Friendly service and well worth the short wait for a table!

We were here again for a second time while in the area on April 19th, 2014. The food and service was just as good this time as the last, which was great to see. The kind family really knows how to serve up great food and serves it in a friendly way. It shows for how busy they are. I... More

After reading many great reviews, my husband and I decided to try this restaurant. The service was good, however the food was terrible.

I cannot tell you how many times I have driven past this tiny unassuming place without ever knowing how awesome it is! My manager loves this place and after "smelling" her take out platters many times, I knew that I had to try it. We knew going in to the restaurant that it is very small and always very crowded....

Food was excellent, service was good. Too bad they have such a small dining area because there is usually a wait (not too long).
