Very good food, good variety

For very good Vietnamese/oriental cuisine, this is a good choice. The service is good, but uneven. Some of our party of 5 waited about 5 minutes until the rest of the party was served. Beer and wine are available if you're persistent about ordering. The ambiance is a bit crowded and noisy, with a... read more

I ordered the shrimp fried rice and an order of shrimp spring rolls. The fried rice is excellent, with a light touch that makes the meal easy to finish, (unlike many Chinese restaurants, you don't feel bloated from soy after finishing this rice). The cilantro sprinkled on top added a really nice texture to every bite, as did the generous... More

The peanut sauce & spring rolls are to die for! Try the shrimp spring rolls, they're huge & delicious. Pad Thai is great, all the food is great. The owner is always on premises & is very friendly. Highly Recommended!

This place has been open just a couple blocks from my house for a couple years now. Tonight was the first night we tried it. I usually don't like Vietnamese food because there is always mint in the food. I hate mint in my food. I mean, I have stopped eating at entire restaurants for surprise mint in my food... More

I liked their diverse menu and especially their clay pot entree. Good place for both meat lovers and Vegans/Vegetarians alike.

This is a really good place. The food is really good and the service is very friendly. It's packed at lunch time. They have anything you could want from soups to noodles.

I read a review somewhere that liked the food but found a fly in it. Well I found a hair in my food. The dish was tasty but there wasn't much shrimp or chicken & pork in it. Nice interior. I ordered two meals to go, my co-worker who wasn't familiar with Vietnamese cooking kind of liked it but also... More
