I have tried everything on their menu and like it all. I do have my favorites like the Pad Thai, Bun(Vietnamese Cold Noodle), Pho Beef Noodle Soup, and Char Siu.

Short menu but food was good. Good sauce and flavor with chicken satay. Cool Vietnamese coffee. Pleasant service. Nice for a change in this area.

Ordered Pad Thai, my one 'evaluation dish' for all restaurants advertising Thai food content. Being from the region, I know what this should taste like - not even close! I've eaten bad pad Thais before and this one ranks among the bottom of the list. I think, from the amount left on my plate and in less than 15 mins... More

We have been eating there about once a month (or more often) since they first opened. Good variety of selections. The flavors seem authentic. You get a good meal for the price.

This place was nothing authentic Thai or Vietnamese at all. While the prices are reasonable, I will never eat there again. It was a major disappointment.

This is a unique restaurant worth visiting. Lunch can be crowded, but it is my favorite. The food is excellent with many choices. To me it is the top Asian restaurant in the area. I love everything on the menu.

Looks like nothing from the front but soooo worth it! Friendly staff. Efficient. Quick. Can't really go wrong with anything on the menu although I will warn you, when they say spicy they mean SPICY!!! Once you decide on a spice level (according to the menu), choose one below that just to be on the safe side. I promise you!... More

Excellent Viet/Thai cuisine. Authentic and great food. Get it Thai hot if you really like hot! Great atmosphere but don't expect a quick lunch during a football weekend-it'll be crowded!
