“Tastes way better than it looks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

The unassuming exterior may not wow you, but the food and service sure will. The bhan mi sandwiches were the best I've eaten. The prices are so reasonable that you'll have enough left over for a drink at one of the fancy (expensive) restaurants or bars in this Gaslight District.

“Best Vietnamese "Fast Food" Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Friendly and pleasant staff at the restaurant. Menu has a very good selection of food and drinks. Very authentic and delicious food. Food ingredients used were very fresh. Highly recommend to anyone that enjoys good food all round. We visited the restaurant 2 days in a row and we were in San Diego for only 3 days. Wished we could have been able to visit more times to try the variety of delicious food on the menu.

“Very nice Vietnamese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

Went to San Diego to visit my Fiancee on her Business trip. Because many of the people that she works with are Asian and do not care for all the American Style food. . . about 20 of us took over the restaurant at lunch. Because we were coming in just after the first wave of lunch Crowd, three of us sat separate from the main group. You could tell that all the waitstaff was weeded but they were quick to get our orders. The food came out well prepared and fast. . . I know each of us enjoyed the food and even liked stealing bites from each other.

When I am in San Diego, I will look for this place again. I really enjoyed.
