“Cute”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

This is a great place to go out to eat. It is not too fancy, but the food sure does taste like it though. The workers are friendly and funny. The food is very authentic and tasty!

“Outstanding!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We just had dinner there tonight and I can not stop raving about this place! Try the clams with butter and salt and pepper... I wanted to lick the platter. Everything was delicious! And service was terrific as well as entertaining.

“Great salmon!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We had most pleasant and helpful service. The night we visited they recommended a steamed salmon with vegetables that is one of the best we have ever tasted. A very generous portion of salmon for a very reasonable price with loads of vegey! We found the clay hot pot a little dry but the summer salad rolls were great with fresh mint. A little tricky to find, you can see it from the Main Street but have to make a series of right turns from central avenue to backtrack to it. Well worth it!

“Our Favorite Vietnamese Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Have been eating at this restaurant for many, many years and are always happy with the food, service and atmosphere. Truly a gem on Maui, but at little difficult to find. Mostly locals and always good-natured abuse from the staff. Recommend it highly and don't be turned off by location or exterior.

“Geat place for a nice bowl of noodles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

If you love Vietnamese style noodles served in a large and well-stocked bowl of goodies at a price you can relax with, this is the place.
The waiter's a card, the atmosphere is good, the menu is large.
Let's go!
