We began with the imperial pork rolls and the green papaya salad. Yummy. We then went on to share a number of dishes but the pumpkin curry was my favorite. Definitely worth the trip.

I went to Falansai for lunch on a Friday and ordered Dad's shrimp rolls for an appetizer, and the Pho Bo for a main course. The shrimp rolls were decent, but definitely overpriced at $7 for four small rolls. After many trysts with ramen, this...More
