“Just had a Banh Mi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Bought four Banh Mi sandwiches for take out. Two Traditional and two Ga. Both varieties were quite good. While waiting for the sandwiches to be prepared I had a chance to talk to the owner and was very impressed. The decor is stark but pleasant. The staff was very friendly and enthusiastic. Will try this establishment again

“Great Vietnamese food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

If you love Vietnamese food, this is the place for you. Nothing fancy in this place: small space but cozy and the food is excellent! Try the "Pho' " , the most comforting food specially this winter season: if you love beef and soup. Their summer roll is a must try, the dipping sauce is truly scrumptious. The best thing is, it doesn't cost much. It's filling and satisfying. It's best value for your money.

As Asian, I am hard to please when it comes to authentic Asian food but I would recommend this place anytime. Happy to know that this place is in my neighborhood!

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The restaurant is cozy. Food is great and prices are reasonable for the neighborhood. I really enjoy the pho soup and shrimp fritters.

“Cheap, fast but with tiny portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Overall good experience but I was slightly hungry after my pho (I picked a large one), but it did not come with enough vegetables or noodles. The spring roll was very tasty but we only got 3 small pieces...
