I like to sit at the counter! a great place that is a slice Santa Cruz. Families, working class folk, tourist, oldsters, regulars and newcomers. A huge menu and everything I have tried is good. Tuesday the soup of the day is thai chicken curry and delicious. great carrot cake. The decor is entertaining old signs and memorabilia that make you smile.

The people that work inside the restaurants have the most terrible customer service. My friend and I were told not to bring any type of drinks inside the facilities. If we were to do such thing we would be kick out of the place. Also the lady told us the water came from the hose in the back & said it was normal to drink that water. Also a tall Caucasian lady was watching us all through our meal like we were little kids eating our lunch in kindergarten . Over hype & over price for ok food. Customer service was beyond horrible.

On a rainy dreary day stopped in for lunch and was not disappointed. Warm and cozy with a great soundtrack playing we enjoyed the vibe, service and food. Tried the Pho and it was excellent. Enough for two and was the pefect confort food on a wet day. Had the Spring Rolls and they were tasty as well. All the food we saw looked good and the portions were ample. Would definitely return next time in the area.

Opened the menu and couldn't believe how many choices you have. I've never seen such a large menu before. My guess is that it has over 200 menu choices....

This place was very popular with the local - admittedly we went at peak lunchtime.

We had grilled chicken sandwiches, but were tempted by the Asian dishes on offer. It is within walking distance from the hampton Inn where we were staying.
