We stopped in on a Friday evening and were surprised it was easy to get a table when some of the other nearby restaurants were packed. This restaurant is located next to the University of Cincinnati so the decor is pretty bare bones to appeal...More

I ate here with my son. The food was good, inexpensive and there was a lot of it. I ate half of my order and took the rest home for dinner.

We were passing by Cincinnati and wanted to try some local Vietnamese food. The food is bland and not your typical authentic Vietnamese food. We were so disappointed that trip advisor had good reviews for this place. Will never come back and will never recommend...More
