“Great find in the 5th”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

We loved this place. It is new and the decor inside this old building is clean and modern with a nod to the past with exposed walls. The owners are very sweet - husband and wife...she's the cook (and a great one at that!) and he is a former tech guy who has worked in Silicon Valley so his English is great which was good for us as there were many dished on the menu that we wanted explanations on and our French is passible but the subtle descriptives were nice to have. This was a nice break from all the 'French' food we'd been having. Tasty, fresh, light. I would go back again for sure and have put it into my contacts!

“Wonderful food and service”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

We are renting an apartment just down the block from this restaurant, and so we thought we'd give it a try. There are many Asian restaurants in the neighborhood, but this is the one we keep going back to. Jennifer (her "western" name as she said) was so lovely, and even has been stepping out of the restaurant when she sees us walk by, just to say hello! We had a beautiful meal there that was truly delicious.

Great simple restaurant. Fast service. Amazing authentic vietnamese food and reasonably priced. Came here twice. The pho and the grill chicken were superb.
