“You Won't Be Disappointed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2011

Cozy restaurant, good service. Plenty of tasty vegetarian options. Conveniently located in downtown Oakland (sort of where uptown and downtown meet).

For non-vegetarians, special rice (saffron flavored rice cooked in chicken broth) has a great flavor and adds a subtle flavor to whatever other food you are having with it (and it looks festive too).

Ask for the Sriracha sauce if you need more spice!

“#20 sampler platter definitely the best bet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2010

I went to dinner with my business colleagues and we had a delicious meal. I looked at the reviews for this restaurant before my trip, and #20 with the shrimp and beef, rice, spring roll, and salad was delicious. The beef melted in your mouth. I highly recommend this vietnamese restaurant.

“My Favorite Vietnamese Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2010

From the appetisers, imperial rolls, sauteed prawns, chicken or shrimp salad, to the pho, to the mains like chicken over spinach or calamari in coconut sauce this restaurant delivers delicious dishes every time. I have been a loyal customer for over 20 years and have watched this family run business expand and improve the ambiance of their downtown Oakland dining room. While costs have risen recently, our party of five filled ourselves with multiple appetisers, main dishes and a bottle of wine plus ice tea/lemonade for $28 per person, including tip, the quality of the food makes it seem like it is almost a bargain. I have a foodie friend from San Francisco, who, when he wants the best Vietnamese food, comes across the Bay Bridge to eat here.
