“Leg of Roach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2009

Went last week and it was pretty good. Went back this week and there was a cockroach leg in my soup. The spoons and dishes feel greasy before you use them. Noticed a cook in the kitchen sitting on the floor preparing food in a bowl.

Food tastes really good and the prices are fair, but I won't be back because of hygiene and sanitation issues. Call me a fussy Caucasian, but this was enough to put me off this place.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2008

One of the best Vietnamese restaurants I've been to in HI. Though I didn't try the pho, the other traditional Vietnamese dishes were prepared very well. We had the duck and noodle soup, the grilled shrimp paste on bamboo skewers, and the jellyfish and shrimp salad. I haven't had Vietnamese cooking this good since I moved out of my parents' house. It tastes just like home cooking. MMMMM.
