Had lunch this Saturday. Ordered the imperial rolls and a Pho. Everything was delicious and so flavorful. The place is tiny but worth the wait. Definitely would go back when I’m in town again.

Food is delicious, but wait times can be long. First time we went (last summer), pho was wonderful, next time not quite so great. But still good!
