Disappointing...bad service

I moved to the area and I've been eating here once or twice a week. My first visit this week, the flavor of my food was not as ordered. And let it slide because of good experiences in the past. Today I dined and the service was so bad that I am compelled to leave a negative review. A long... read more

We have seen this restaurant from the road on many occasions but what moved us to visit is a mystery. We had heard good things about it through the grapevine. The parking is limited but it is not a very big restaurant to begin with. We were seated immediately and severed drinks quickly. The wait staff was courteous and efficient.... More

This place is legit. The food is absolutely amazing. The service is prompt and courteous. The prices are more than fair for the portions. The only thing preventing a five star review is the atmosphere. The decor is tired and in need of an upgrade.

My wife & I have become regulars. Food is consistently good, service is always friendly and attentive and the prices are very good. It's one of those places you stumble across by accident and wonder why you didn't know about it sooner. Five stars :)

My wife and I stumbled across this small restaurant on our way to a different restaurant and we were so delighted. The food and friendly service is amazing!!! Very fresh. My wife gets the veggie and tofu pho and I get the seafood pho. This place is a must visit as we are now regulars.

I can't get enough of this place. They serve the most exquisite Vietnamese food and we are lucky to have them! The owner is very gracious and warm welcoming and the food is outstanding. Pho is always my top choice but they offer many intriguing dishes! Just tasty and beautifully presented at a very reasonable price! Will keep coming back... More

After reading TA's reviews, we choose to have lunch here. We ordered spicy shrimp with lemongrass and chicken with ginger. Both dishes were VERY bland, without distinction. If we were to go again, we would probably order Pho. So disappointed!

The answer is, thankfully, yes. Not only was it great to have a restaurant choice in the Hilton Head area other than the usual suspects, but the food and experience were worth coming back for in their own right The food is very good. The Pho and Banh Xeo tasted authentic, as did the crispy fried rolls (although the casing... More

I was looking for a lunch date place in Bluffton and saw the reviews - I love Asian food but never had Vietnamese before. We loved it! We got there about 12:15 and it was packed. We watched the owner literally running between tables with a huge smile. The lunch special comes with soup, spring roll and main with sticky... More
