Recommended by our hotel staff, we wanted to have a vietnamese soup, pho, and we really enjoyed it. Very good spring rolls, although a little bit expensive but worth the quality and taste. Good quality of food for the price.

Ok, this place is the real deal when it comes to good, no great Pho. Yummy. Everything we had was super with one being the beef pho and the other chicken pho. The fried Imperial Rolls were perfect and next we have tried.
