We visited this restaurant because I had read something somewhere about how good it was. Wow. What a mistake. I felt like I was in the Twilight Zone for the entire visit. Granted, we arrived at an odd time: 4:00pm. I got the feeling the regular staff was all home and the whole place was being run by people who... More

great, fresh food in a cool setting. The drinks are super, the service is wonderful! The prices are amazing too! The best Vietnamese in NY without a doubt. Try their lollipop chicken - you won't regret.

Value for the money is also... More

I had noodles with spring rolls while my husband had pork wrapped on a lemongrass skewer. I enjoyed my food but... More

I enjoyed this restaurant quite a bit. Having lived in a heavily populated Vietnamese Community in Minnesota (and eaten my fair share of their cuisine!) I thought that their food quite good. Not as spicy as I would have liked, but I have the beef croquettes over noodles and they were delicious. I would like to try it again and... More
