“Very disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

Visited after reading some strong reviews. Granted, we did not go on a Wednesday or Saturday, so there were not a lot of Vietnamese choices, but the curried chicken and the sesame chicken were downright terrible. On the other hand, the Imperial roll was quite tasty. I'd try it again on a Wednesday or Saturday if I am in the area, simply because it's so inexpensive and the reviews of the traditional menus are so good; but I don't have high expectations.

“fabulous sesame chicken”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2010

Got there early'ish, which was great - completely full by 8. Food came out in a reasonable amount of time. My husband's kung pao chicken was decent, but I had the special sesame chicken and it was delicious. Both of us had doggy bags! Prices are very reasonable. We want to come back on a wednesday or saturday when they have vietnamese food!
