“Better on the inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

We stopped in here for a late meal, having visited the Sun Yat Sen Garden round the corner. Nothing in the area had looked that appealing but it was getting late so we decided to give this a go. It was a very pleasant surprise. Staff were very friendly and the service was quick and efficient. Food was very good Vietnamese with a wide selection, including some good veggie options. I had an excellent chicken noodle soup, and a friend had an equally good beef noodle soup. Another friend went for a set meal combo which she enjoyed and the veggie had a fried vegetable and tofu dish. The meal was served with jasmin tea, which they refilled as necessary. Overall a very pleasant experience.

“Wonderful Restaurant in the Heart of Chinatown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

My husband and I found this restaurant for lunch while doing our own tour of Chinatown.
Many of the restaurants we passed looked greasy, grimy, and packed with people......and, not at all inviting.
This was a pleasant surprise. It was clean and the tables and booths were generously spaced.
There were a few locals there when we arrived and others slowly trickled in.
The wait staff was attentive, but service, once the order was taken, was slow.
It was definitely worth the wait because the food was delicious and nicely presented. I had the lemongrass chicken which I would highly recommend.
Prices were good and portions were large
