“Pleasant lunch”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

This is probably the only "Vietnamese" restaurant in Puerto Vallarta and I use quotes because the chef is from Hong Kong, via Canada. That said, we had a nice lunch here, having ordered the summer rolls and Tonkinese Beef Soup, which was actually pho, as we had expected. Broth was flavorful, albeit not as fragrant as other pho we have had in Vietnam and NYC, but authentic tasting, appropriately served with bean sprouts, lime and a bit of basil. Beef was a generous portion of thinly sliced brisket. Summer rolls were very good, fresh shrimp and rice noodles in an uncooked rice rapper, served with a sweet sauce. Sriracha and hoi sin sauce were available on each table. The service was pleasant, the air conditioning welcome, and I hope that more customers show up, as I felt it was an honest, unique, and well priced lunch option, sadly rather empty during our visit.
