The restaurant's appearance is shabby and needs to be cleaned up a bit more in my opinion, but the waitress was very kind and helpful and the food was out of this world. I would recommend the vermicelli noodles. If you like spicy food, they can give you a spicy sauce. If not, the sweet sauce was a big hit... More

I had the chicken curry over vermicelli noodles. The spicy curry flavor and fresh veggies were nice. The chicken tasted like it was in a crock pot vs freshly prepared the noodles were overdone Although the flavors were authentic the cleanliness of the paint and carpet were not great I can eat here alone but would not bring friends or...

This little restaurant is hidden in an old strip mall where Food Lion used to be and new grocery store will open in July of 2015. I LOVE Vietnamese Food and usually call in an order to pick up on the way home about once a week or so. The interior definitely needs some updating but the food is consistently... More

Walked in to an empty smelly restaurant with filthy carpets and two employees practically nodding off at a table. Walked out.

I eat at this restaurant every time i'm in town, a few times a year for several years. The food is very good, simple, good price. It's not very fancy and ambience is a bit dated, but it works. Curry chicken vermicelli is the favorite.

My favorite is the spicy curry chicken on vermicelli. Order it extra spicy for a real treat. I love mom who runs the place. Great food and excellent value.

My wife and I eat at this restaurant about once a week. The food is simple, but tasty and fresh. Prices are very reasonable. In the winter, the soups are great, huge and warm. Curry chicken on rice is our favorite dish. The owner, Kim, had an interesting life, fleeing Vietnam during the war. If you are looking for a... More
