I took a visiting international student friend to Ha Long Bay fro dinner-- parking was a hassle and service was a bit slow for a Monday night, but the dinner was worth the wait-- excellent and varied menu, with Thai, Lao, and Vietnamese options, our meals were flavorful and portions were generous. Best of all was the price-- about $30... More

Amazing menu, incredibly tasty food! We went on a Friday night & had a little wait for our table. So very worth it! Loved everything from the Appetizers to the Main course. Seasoned, tasty dishes made to your preference- mild or what I call "oh, my gosh HOT!" pleased everyone's palette. Definitely a new favorite Asian restaurant for me. My... More

It looks like a very ordinary place from the outside, but it is anything but. Everything felt like it was prepared to order- even the spring rolls. The chef paid such attention to freshness, presentation and flavor - I really couldn't recommend this place more. I might also add that our server was so sweet and happy! It was late... More

My wife had a fantastic pho with meat balls, whereas as I had a Nem Khao Tod, a crispy rice Laotian specialty. Everything tasted really good, portions were honest and the price is really unbeatable. Service is OK, however seating wait times can be long, but I think that it is worth the wait.

The place tends to get very crowded and waiting times can be over half an hour often. And some of the seating is very cramped and uncomfortable. But the food is so worth the wait and the discomfort. . Thats why I am giving it a 5 star. I have too many favorites to list. The portions are great too.... More

After a bicycle ride of 20 miles, we came to this restaurant: fast service (we were starving), nice waitress and extraordinary tasty food! The little candy is not to be forgotten as it is so good!

Waited an hour for our meal and left because it still was not ready. When asked why it was taking so long they said they had a lot of catering orders. That only made us even more upset because here we are sitting in their dining room and they make us wait while they're taking care of their catering orders.... More

This was a first time visit and a very pleasant surprise. We were there on a Saturday for lunch. Very busy and we can understand why. The Vietnam food has a flavor that is special and brings out the best in the food. One dish was grilled pork and garnished with tomato carrot and cucumber and rice. Second dish was... More

We have been here twice now, I have tried the pho, squash curry, pad pen, and spicy wontons. Every one of them was delicious, I would eat them all again. However, the menu is so large that I want to continue trying new things, I mean.... Why not? I love everything I've had. The restaurant itself is small and extremely... More
