“Excellent shrimp and spring rolls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

We split a full order of shrimp and spring rolls. We received 6 very fresh and good spring rolls and about 18 shrimp. We ordered the shrimp spicy and they were as they were mixed with dried chili, green chiles that may have been Asian and some onions and green onions They also have extra spicy which would have been too much for us. It was very busy there on a Sunday evening but the took order quickly and food did not take too long. Very reasonable prices.

“OMG GOOD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

OMG so glad we found this place
they have GREAT salt/pepper shrimp and squid

its a little hole in the wall place in a sketchy part of town but the food more than makes up for it

their shimp which is sold by weight 1/2, or 1 pound is fried and tossed with a garlic/chili/scallion sauce that is addictive
could eat the sauce on just about anything - the shrimp are perfectly fried - or you can get the squid which is the same sauce tossed with squid rings (dont worry if you are squeemish there are no tenticles or at least I havent found them)

they also have a good bowl of pho but that takes second place to the shrimp and squid

btw way did I mention that squid and shrimp are great???

“Great Shrimp”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

The Salt n Pepper shrimp was great and the Pho with beef filled me up, even tho I ordered the small bowl. Looking forward to a repeat visit to try the spring rolls . I was surprised to find the area around the restaurant to be so run down, but its still worth the experience unless you want to drive to little saigon in Huntington Beach.

“So Delicious and wonderful service!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

The restaurant is not fancy at all but the food is soooo delicious!! We ordered the spicy rock shrimp and a fish with white sauce ( i think it had coconut and lemongrass). I believe it is a family run business and the servers are all very sweet. We got there a little early for lunch but within a few minutes the whole restaurant was full with young families, older couples, and college aged youth. This must be very authentic Vietnamese food because most of the customers that day were Vietnamese. Just know that even their mild version has some kick to it. Don't be surprised by the very plain-looking tables/ chairs. Go on in and order the shrimp or fish. Mmmmm..my mouth is watering just thinking about the food:)
