“Disappointed this time...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

In the past, I was impressed with the food and the service. Yesterday though, the server was having trouble taking care of three groups who arrived around the same time- 6 people in all around 5:30 pm.

The food left a lot to be desired this time. Mom's beef with French bread is a great size for a senior so she was happy with that. I, however, had curried chicken with noodles and there was hardly any chicken on the small bony pieces that were thrown in. Very few veggies. Water came in coffee mugs and were not refilled until I got the server's attention. Others had proper drinking glasses, but we had mugs of water, very small mugs.

The server was not very attentive and I felt there was an uncaring aloof attitude when I paid another person for the meal. My plan is not to return, but to try other Vietnamese restaurants- ones who truly care about the dining experience of their customers.

“Bad chicken”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

I have come to this location many times in the past and it was great. I am wondering if these are newish owners as the quality of the food has really gone down. I had pork and it was fine but my partner had some very scary grilled chicken and paid for it dearly later. Will not return.

“Food ok but restaurant is very small and tight”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

Vietnamese fare: average food quality. Restaurant is very small and very tight. Not very comfortable atmosphere. Prices are reasonable.
