“Best Bun Bo Hue, Mi Quang, or Banh Beo in the City”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

I'll admit: I only come here for 3 dishes, and never order anything else. This restaurant is well know for their bun bo hue, mi quang, and banh beo, all of which are incredibly good. If you order anything else, I don't know if you'll be satisfied with your dish, which may affect your perception of this place. I've never been disappointed by those 3 dishes at any time. The service isn't so bad either, but you do need to ask for what you want because they don't really come by to check up on you like American restaurants do. NOTE: This restaurant is cash only. The only downside about this place is the wait: it's crowded here no matter what time you go, so expect to wait at least 20 minutes for a table. And even though they expanded, it doesn't seem like their staff did, so the wait time for your food to arrive is a bit longer than the average Vietnamese place. They really need to hire more cooks here.

“Hot Hot HOT”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

They do bun bo hue right.... so spicy! Yet so good and flavorful... I didn't have to add anything to my bowl. In fact, I normally don't eat bun bo hue outside of mom's house (never found a place that made it well), and now I'm a total convert. I've never craved restaurant bun bo hue until now.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Had two hours to spend in Little Saigon. Always liked Vietnamise food flavors. After parking at the strip mall, googled the near by restaurants (6 of them). Made my choice. The choice was right. Every dish was delicious. it is regional central Vietnamese food. One of the best Vietnamese places I have been too.
