“Cheap and Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Fast Vietnamese food and bubble tea. Located opposite the Del Monte mall in a row of motels it is easy to miss this family friendly spot. A smiling, hardworking, young crew aims to please. There are classic Vietnamese soups and stir fry with an astounding range of sweet teas and milk concoctions. There is a big take out business and thus the restaurant is bustling but there is plenty of seating both indoors and outside.

“Amazing Vietnamese food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We stopped the night in Monterey and discovered this great Vietnamese restaurant with amazing Pho and a great selection of goodies. Its a real locals place with quality food at great prices, not the touristy prices of the town area. The service is fast and the staff very friendly, they also do takeaways and great 'pork rolls'.

“Wonderful and cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

A little nice place, a bit loudly but that didn't took the overall experience down. Really well visited.
You get good food and a lot of it for absolutely no money, go for it.

It was very inexpensive and very nicely prepared, had a great bustle to the place too. The value was fantastic, loved the Popcorn Chicken.

“This is NOT Vietnamese food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

The food at this restaurant was acceptable but it is in no way real Vietnamese food. The waiter was prompt and the prices reasonable but it just wasn't what real Vietnamese food tastes like.
