Just ate there again two nights ago. Went late, the place was still packed. Minimal wait though, and we were lucky to get three people seated at a table for two. It was worth the wait again. Is it a "WOW, OMG I've never had anything like this" kind of place? For some it is, the first few times you... More

My kids had never had Vietnamese cuisine, but we are all for encouraging them to try different foods. We had rice paper rolls with shrimp as an appetizer, they had kids beef noodle soup and my husband and I each had a chicken with rice dish that I have no idea what it was called. We just asked for recommendations... More

When was the last time you ran out of a restaurant and were hell-bent on getting to your laptop to shout about a place from the proverbial rooftops? Well, folks, I found that place in, of all places, Lancaster, PA. Would you believe Vietnamese of all things? In LANCASTER? Like finding seafood in the Kalahari. This place is much more... More

Everything is so fresh and fragrant. The wait staff is very attentive. It's a small place but well worth waiting for a table. Save room for the macaroons.

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!
