“Great for casual lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Lucky corner is just around the block from work... But a relaxed lunch there feels like a vacation . Great flavors and prompt staff allow a one hour get a way.
Never tried it for dinner,but I would expect the same.

“Fresh, Friendly & Affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Located on the far end of Market Street, this is a neighborhood gem. If you like Vietnamese classics - Pho or Pad Thai - this is the spot. The menu is extensive so meat, seafood, and veggie lovers will be happy with a wide range of choices. Their carmelized catfish is tasty. The summer rolls are delish but the spring rolls are only so-so. If they have a crab special...splurge! The duck dumplings are also worth a try.

Service is always friendly but sometimes you'll feel forgotten. Since the room is small (~20 tables) it's easy to carry on a conversation. And, there's free parking. This is a restaurant that allows you to stick to your budget - the prices are quite reasonable.

“Delicious Vietnamese Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I'd never had Vietnamese food before, but now I'm hooked. Everything is so fresh and has wonderful flavor. It's a small spot and a favorite for many folks. They have a very extensive menu - I'm working my way through it. My favorite so far is one of their "bowls."

“This is not vietnamese food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

Probably the worse PHO AND BUN BO HUE ever

Why try to alter vietnamese food to the white folks. Be proud of your viet heritage and serve authentic viet food. Don't tell me that you don't serve it bc white people don'tlike it. what about what asian/viet customer like.
No wonder your restaurant is alway empty.


Soup was bland
Broth tasted like something that can from a premix pouch.
Good pho and buon bo bue is from broth that is simmered in beef bones/beef not just water and an instant mix.
